Weather Conditions

Rotterdam will have a dark and cloudy weather on the match day with rain interruptions expected. Rain delays might bring DL equation into consideration in this match.

Venue Details

Rotterdam is one of the good pitches with assistance for both batsmen and bowlers. Pacers might enjoy bowling with the new ball and the ball might seam around troubling the batsmen. We can expect average scores in the range of 240-250 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option when you are unsure of the conditions and we expect both captains to bowl first and use the moisture content in the pitch.

NED vs SCO Winning Prediction

Scotland team has better playing XI in terms of experience among the two teams and they also have a 6-2 win-loss ratio over the Netherlands. But lack of game time and new look pace attack might be their big worries in this match. Scotland players will look to give spirited performances and get a win in this match. They need to bring their T20I experience to ODIs. We expect Scotland to win this match.

Scotland will win the match
