Pakistan vs Netherlands Betting Odds

Up next are our cricket betting tips for this match.

Can Pakistan be stunned by a huge outsider for the second match running? We’re not sure they can but there are big odds on offer about the Netherlands if you feel that might happen again.

Instead, we’ll give you a good betting tip on an in-form Pakistan bowler to be their top wicket-taker on the day.

He took four wickets last match yet is available at really good odds this time, so you can see why he’s a good wager.

Have you worked out who it is?

There’s also the toss prediction below.

Mohammad Wasim to be Pakistan Top Bowler 6.4
Toss: Netherlands 1.85

Mohammad Wasim to be Pakistan’s Top Bowler

To an extent, we’re kicking ourselves for not having gone with Zimbabwe to beat Pakistan the other day.

Zimbabwe are a dangerous side and for whatever reason, if there’s one big team prone to big upsets, it’s Pakistan.

But then again, Zimbabwe were given just a 4% chance of winning the game with four balls to go, so you can see what an unexpected result it was on all levels.

This time round the Netherlands are 7.8 and here will be a few hoping lightning can strike twice.

But the Netherlands don’t have the same sort of weapons that Zimbabwe do for an upset and Pakistan are unlikely to have a third bad day at the office in a row, so we’ll give the big outsiders a miss.

If the Dutch win, good on them.

Instead, we’ll go with the man who was their top wicket-taker against Zimbabwe to keep up the good work.

Mohammad Wasim took four wickets in that match and looked in fine rhythm so it’s pretty surprising that he is available at such big odds of 6.4

To put that into context, that makes him almost twice the price of favourite Haris Rauf (3.85) and a considerably bigger price than the likes of Shaheen Shah Afridi (4.0) when he has a great chance.

So Wasim it is.

And if you haven’t read it already, here’s our BlueChip review.

Pakistan Recent Form

If Pakistan had played the second innings of their match against Zimbabwe 100 times, they would have expected to have won the game at least 95 of them.

But they didn’t.

There was another failure from the highly-rated opening duo of Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan, who seem to have lost form at just the wrong time.

For the second match running the very capable Shan Mahsood top-scored for them and appeared to be getting Pakistan home.

But he got out at just the wrong time, stumped off a wide ball, and they were always up against it after that.

All-rounder Mohammad Nawaz then looked like he might be Pakistan’s hero with the bat when he got to 22. But he also buckled under the pressure and was out with just one ball left.

And with Shaheen Shah Afridi on strike to face his first ball, he managed just one when they needed two for the tie and three for the win.

So plenty for Pakistan’s batters to answer for. But at least their bowlers look in decent form.

Mohammad Wasim took four wickets and was extremely economical and Shadab Khan was almost as good with three.

That loss was one that looks like it will really hurt them.

Their best bet is to hope that India beat South Africa and that they then play and beat South Africa themselves.

But even then, they’ll need to improve their net run rate drastically because of how easily SA beat Bangladesh.

The (only) good news is that because they lost both their matches by just one run their current net run rate isn’t bad but they’ll already have to think about winning this one comfortably if they’re to have any chance of progressing.

Likely XI

Azam, Rizwan, Masood, Ahmed, Khan, Nawaz, H Ali, Wasim, Afridi, Rauf, Shah.

Netherlands Recent Form

The Netherlands are finding that beating Associate nations in the first round of the World Cup is one thing but that playing the very best in the world is quite another.

They missed a good chance to beat Bangladesh but were quite frankly, torn apart by a good Indian side.

They conceded 179 and came nowhere near chasing that, falling 56 runs short.

That their top-scorer Tim Pringle managed just 20 runs tells you all you need to know about what a struggle it was for them against the very best bowlers in the game.

Still, it’s worth remembering that these Dutch players are at best county pros in England and aren’t expected to be winning games such as these.

Roelof van der Merwe, one of those county pros, is still out injured and they miss his accurate spin bowling and sharp fielding.

Likely XI

Singh, O’Dowd, de Leede, Ackerman, Cooper, Edwards, Pringle, van Beek, Ahmad, Klaassen, van Meekren.

Pakistan vs Netherlands Head-to-Head

These two have only ever played each other once and that was back in 2009 at the World Cup in England.

Pakistan posted 175 batting first and the Netherlands were all out for 93.

Venue & conditions

Thankfully the forecast is good for Perth on Sunday. At last.

We’ve already had four no results that have threatened to ruin the enjoyment of the World Cup. So it will be nice to not only have a match without rain but also one without the worry of rain.

Perth has been a tough wicket so far for all batsmen.

But Pakistan should finally have a good day with the at the third time of asking and should be able to get around 165 batting first.

If it’s the Netherlands going first, they may struggle to get past 135.

So it could be a good betting option to go with them to get less than that on the first innings runs line.
