Netherlands is set to host England for the 1st ODI of the three-match ODI series at VRA Cricket Ground, Amstelveen on June 17th from 2:30 pm. This will be the first bilateral series between the Netherlands and England. They have met each other three times before - all occasions came in the group stages of the ICC World Cups.
The Netherlands are yet to win an ODI game this year. They have now gone victory less in the last 9 ODIs (3 each against Afghanistan, New Zealand, and West Indies). Last year, they won three out of the 5 ODIs including a 2-1 series win against Ireland. In their last ODI, they came close to beating West Indies at the same venue but lost by just 20 runs. England will be playing their first ODI of this year. They had a pretty good run in 2021. Except for the series loss against India, they won two home series at home. At first, they beat Sri Lanka (2-0) and then Pakistan (3-0). In their last game, they chased 331 runs in 48 overs to beat Pakistan by 3 wickets.
Both teams have only met in the ICC World Cups so far. In 1996, England beat the Netherlands team by 49 runs. They repeated the result in 2003 in East London, with 7 wickets in hand. But the last outing saw some nail-biting finish. Batting first Netherlands set a target of 293 after a century from Ryan ten Doeschate. Then English captain Andrew Straus guided his team to register a 6-wicket victory in the penultimate over of the game.
On a rare occasion, the Netherlands met England in the 2014 T20 World Cup. They bowled out England for 88 runs to take the game by 45 runs.
Skipper Pieter Seelar, Tom Cooper, and Eoin Morgan (England) are the only three players among the 32 (18 Netherlands, 14 England) who have played against each other. So it will be an all-new experience when these two teams collide. Except for Tonny Staal, the Netherlands have retained the same squad that played against West Indies earlier this month. This means Vikramjit Singh and Max O’Dowd will be opening the innings. O’Dowd was the leading run-scorer of the series against West Indies with 179 runs. He scored 2 half-centuries, including 89 in the last ODI. Singh also finished in the top-five run-scorers with 147 runs.
Musa Ahmed and Bas de Leede will be playing in the top order. But they have a collective average of just 16. This might get the Netherlands in trouble in the openers don’t click. Scott Edwards and Teja Nidamanuru are the obvious choices to play in the middle order. 25-year-old Edwards has been a good addition to the squad as he averages 29.87 in 19 matches. He scored 208 runs in the series against Afghanistan that included three consecutive fifties at an average of 69.33. Nidamanuru, who debuted against West Indies scored a fifty on his debut.
Skipper Pieter Seelar will lead the pace attack with Fred Klaassen and Logan van Beek. Seelar is the most experienced one within the trio with 55 wickets in 56 games. But van Beek and Klaassen are the ones to look out for. van Beek has 10 wickets in his last 5 matches. He was the one who took 3 wickets for 9 in the 2014 T20 World Cup against England. Klassen’s recent record is quite impressive. He has 25 wickets in 13 ODIs for the Netherlands. Besides this, he was Kent’s second-leading wicket-taker (19 wickets) when they won the Vitality Blast in 2021. Aryan Dutt and Vivian Kingma will fill the remaining places of playing eleven.
Key Players: Max O’Dowd, Fred Klaassen, Logan van Beek.

It's been 11 months since England played their last ODI. And except for Phil Salt, Dawid Malan, and Brydon Carse who featured in the last ODI, it’s an all-new squad for England. With one Test against New Zealand in order, Eoin Morgan is back in the team to lead the squad in absence of the key players. Jason Roy is back in the squad after missing the ODI series against Pakistan. He will open with Phil Salt. Salt scored 37 off just 22 balls in the last ODI against Pakistan. He has also scored 226 runs at a strike rate of 142.13 in the Vitality Blast 2022.
David Malan, Jos Butler, and Liam Livingston will play in the middle order. Jos Butler is in red hot form after finishing the IPL as an Orange Cap holder with 863 runs. With so many big hitters in the squad, it will be a run galore for England if they bat first. Eoin Morgan will bat down the order. Morgan has played against the Netherlands when he represented Ireland. He has 145 runs with two half-centuries in two matches played against the hosts.
All-rounder Sam Curran is making a comeback after missing a season due to an injury. The Surrey superstar has 11 wickets in 7 matches of Vitality Blast. Brydon Carse will lead the bowling unit with Curran, and Reese Topley. Carse took his career-best figure of 5 for 61 in the final ODI against Pakistan and also scored 11 off 10 balls to help England win by 3 wickets. As far as the spin option is considered, England will go back to Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid.
