Team Pakistan had to toil hard in the first ODI for their first victory against the Netherlands, but the Men in Green stepped up when it mattered and won the contest by 16 runs. Fakhar Zaman scored an excellent century as the visitors crossed the 300-run mark in their allotted 50 overs.
The Dutch side also batted decently, but they could not cross the winning line. The home team will be looking to redeem themselves in the second ODI fixture to be played at the Hazelaarweg, Rotterdam on August 18 (Thursday). The visitors on the other hand will want to win the game and seal the series.

NED vs PAK Pitch Report
The wicket at Rotterdam was good for batting in the first ODI match and a good batting track might also be expected for the second fixture. However, slow bowlers might get some assistance with the old ball, and they can also have a say in the match. The skipper winning the toss might prefer to chase.

NED vs PAK Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match:
Pakistan skipper Babar Azam scored a decent fifty in the first ODI match as he scored 70+ runs and missed a century by some margin. The right-handed batter will want to redeem himself and smash a big score against a meek-looking Dutch side in the second fixture.
Probable best bowler of the match
Pakistan’s express pacer Haris Rauf scalped three wickets in the first ODI fixture and the speedster will be looking to emulate his performance in the second ODI as well. However, Rauf was a touch expensive in the first ODI encounter as he gave away 67 runs in his ten overs. The pacer will want to work on that as well.
