The Netherlands would face an uphill challenge as they take on the South African side in the 1st ODI of the 3-match series at SuperSport Park, Centurion. The Netherlands has had a poor record in this format of the game, and they would face one of the top sides and it would be a challenge for them. South Africa would like to put behind the setback of the T20 World Cup with a good show in the series.
In the past, the two sides have played four ODI games and the South Africans have won them all. This would add to their confidence and the fact that they have good knowledge of the conditions playing at home. The Netherlands would like to fight it out in the middle and it would be interesting to see how they perform in this game.
The South Africans have rested many of their top players for this series and Keshav Maharaj would be leading a side with several young players. They are a much stronger side than their opponents and Maharaj would want his players to play their natural game. They would aim for an early lead in the series here.
Janneman Malan and Reeza Hendricks would look to offer the side a strong start in this game. Khaya Zondo has done well in the domestic circuit, and he would look to make this opportunity count batting at No. 3. David Miller, Kyle Verreynne, and Zubayar Hamza add good strength to the middle order. Andile Phehlukwayo and Wayne Parnell are good hitters of the ball down the order and add to the side’s strengths.
Lungo Ngidi would aim to strike early in the game sharing the new ball with Dwaine Pretorius and make use of the pace in the wicket. Parnell and Phehlukwayo are experienced bowlers and shall be aiming to bowl tight spells. Tabraiz Shamsi and Maharaj would aim to exploit the weakness that the Netherlands has against spin bowling.

Pieter Seelaar would like to put behind the disappointment of the T20 World Cup where they failed to win a single game. Seelaar would hope a change in the format brings in a change in fortunes for the side. It won’t be easy against the South Africans in their backyard and the Netherlands skipper would like his side to show their character in this game.
The side would like to see a good start in this game from Max O’Dowd and Stephan Myburgh as they would be up against a very good pace attack in the game. In the middle order, Scott Edwards, Musa Ahmed, and Bas de Leede would have to do well in the game. Seelaar and Timm van der Gugten are good finishers and the side would have big expectations from them in this game.
Shane Snater and Vivian Kingma would need to strike early as the hosts have good strength at the top. Timm van der Gugten and Seelaar would have to make good use of their experience in this game and keep the scoring under check in the middle overs. The side would also look to make good use of Max O’Dowd and Ackermann in the middle overs.

It would be nice and warm weather at Centurion on November 26 with slight cloud cover. The wicket is expected to have a lot of juice and fast bowlers would enjoy the conditions in this game. The ball comes onto the bat nicely here and hence the side batting first would eye a score over 300 runs.
The wicket at the SuperSport Park, Centurion offers good assistance to the fast bowlers who can extract pace and bounce front the surface. Batsmen have also done well as the surface has true bounce and pace. It isn’t the best venue for the spinners as there is little turn on offer for them.
The wicket hasn’t been used for a while and hence there would be a lot of pace and bounce on offer for the fast bowlers to exploit. The conditions would be slightly cloudy and hence the side winning the toss would have little hesitation in opting to bowl first in the game.
The Netherlands would have to show their character in this game. There is a vast experience gap between them and the South Africans. Their top order would have to deliver in this game for the side to put up a challenge against their opponents. The South Africans have a strong bowling attack and good knowledge of the conditions, and this would make them favorites to win this game and take an early lead in the series.
