Netherlands will win the match
Our prediction is the Netherlands will win the match!
Zimbabwe is going through a rough patch both on and off the field. They have lost all the three matches played in this tour so far. This is their last chance to register at least a consolation win in this tour and level the T20I series 1-1. Craig Ervine scored a fighting half-century but got no support from the batsmen at the other end. Craig Ervine`s wicket stumbled them form 89/2 near the half-way mark to 150/7 by the end of the innings. No other batsmen scored more than 20 runs. Their bowlers were taken to cleaners and they leaked 199 runs in their quota of 2 overs. Spin bowlers Sikander Raza and Sean Williams were economical but did not take enough wickets to trouble the opposition line-up.
Chris Mpofu played his first match in this tour and captured 2 wickets. Kyle Jarvis is having a horrendous tour with yet another poor performance leaking 40 runs in just 3 overs. Zimbabwe needs to stand up and deliver a good performance in their last chance this tour.
Netherlands team will be delighted and morale boosted by the wins over the Zimbabwe team. Roelof Van der Merwe was the star performer scoring 75 runs of just 39 balls. Ben Cooper provided a good start with his attacking fifty after Zimbabwe dismissed Tobias Weese in the first over. Max ODowd played a vital cameo of 30 runs and stitched an 80-run partnership with Ben Cooper.
The Netherlands scored a massive 199 runs in their 0 overs and set a massive target of 200 runs. Brandon Glover, Pieter Seelaar, and Fred Klassen took 3 wickets each and bowled out Zimbabwe for just 150 runs. Roelof Van der Merwe opened the bowling and took a wicket in his very first over to put an all-round performance with both bat and ball. The Netherlands will look to washout Zimbabwe in this tour with 4 wins on a trot.
Max ODowd – Max ODowd is having a dream tour and is on a purple patch with the bat. He added vital partnership with Ben Cooper which set the match for the Netherlands. He is on a purple patch and we expect it continue in this match too.
Pieter Seelaar - Skipper Pieter Seelaar had match figures of 4-0-28-3 in his four overs and took the important wickets of Brendan Taylor and Sean Williams. He kept on piling the pressure in the middle overs and made the batsmen make the mistakes.

Craig Ervine – Craig Ervine has back-to-back scores of 84 & 57 in the final ODI and the first T20I match this tour. He needs to continue his good form with the bat to ensure a good start to his team`s batting.
Sean Williams – Williams has the only bowler who gave away runs at just 6 RPO and dismissed aggressive Tobias Weese in the first over. Williams’s ability to bowl with good control and accuracy in the powerplays will create pressure on the batsmen.

Rotterdam pitch is good for batting and batsmen will find it easier to score once set. We can expect scores in a range of 170-180 runs on this pitch. The pitch might slow down as the match progresses. The weather on match day looks bright and clear with just 2-3% chances of rain predicted. No weather interruptions are expected in this match.
Both teams will be looking to set a big total on board and pressurize the opposition batsmen. The pitch might slow down in the second innings and batsmen will find it hard to score.
Zimbabwe team is in a crisis situation and they need some special standout performances from their team to achieve a win. The Netherlands is on a roll and will be high on confidence after their recent victories over Zimbabwe team this tour. We expect the Netherlands to win their fourth match this tour.
