Top Picks for NED vs PAK Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
The highest-ranked Pakistani batter is showing no sign to stop scoring big runs right now. He smashed another fifty, his 10th 50-plus score in the last 10 overall matches. Babar Azam also completed the 4500-run milestone in the last match and will be a perfect captaincy choice for this clash on Thursday.
The experienced opening batter scored 109 runs off 109 balls and was unfortunate to get run out in the last match. He put on a sensible 168-run partnership for the second wicket with Babar Azam after an early dismissal of his partner Imam-ul-Haq. This was his first century in ODIs this year and he also completed 2500 runs in ODI format.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Pakistani vice-captain continued his good form with another brilliant performance in the last match. He smashed unbeaten 48 runs off just 28 balls to help his team to score 300-plus total. Shadab failed to take any wickets but conceded only 47 runs and will be a good captaincy choice on Thursday.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Bas de Leede:
The 22-year-old batting all-rounder put a surprisingly impressive performance in the last match. Pakistan managed to score 314 runs but de Leede conceded just 42 runs during his 10-over spell and took two big wickets of Mohammad Rizwan and Mohammad Nawaz.
The young speedster had a debut to remember in the last match. Naseem took three wickets, including a big wicket of Max O’Dowd, while conceding just 51 runs in his 10-over spell. He has taken wickets in all of his last ten matches and will be a safe bowling option for your Dream11 team.
Top Picks – Wicketkeeper
The Netherlands’ skipper played a captain’s knock in the last match. He remained unbeaten on 71 runs while chasing a big target but couldn’t guide his team to a finish line. He has been in very good form lately and this was his third unbeaten knock in the last five overall matches.

Mohammad Rizwan, Scott Edwards, Babar Azam (c), Fakhar Zaman (vc), Tom Cooper, Vikramjit Singh, Shadab Khan, Bas de Leede, Vivian Kingma, Haris Rauf, Naseem Shah.

Scott Edwards, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Tom Cooper, Logan van Beek, Shadab Khan (c), Mohammad Nawaz, Bas de Leede, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf (vc), Aryan Dutt.
NED vs PAK Risky Captaincy Choice:
The experienced Pakistani wicketkeeper batter entered the pitch in 35th over in the last match and was bowled out for just 14 runs off 17 balls. He is just four runs away from reaching the 1000-run mark in ODI cricket and needs to score big in the remaining two matches.
The veteran batter scored 65 runs off just 54 balls and looked very confident in the first match. This was his first fifty in his last five matches and he will be looking to carry his momentum in the next match as well.
Player you should avoid:
The middle-order batter made his ODI debut in the last match after making his red-ball debut against Sri Lanka last month. He scored unbeaten 27 runs and bowled four overs as well. But he is likely to score big runs while playing in the lower order so you should avoid him for this match.
