Pitch Report: The pitch at Uppal has been generally flat, so we can expect a high-scoring match. As the match progresses and when the pitch gets used, spinners can come into play in the second innings. However, the last match at the venue was a bit trickier for the batters, especially against the spinners and pacers with good variations.

Fantasy Notes (Netherlands) - vs New Zealand, Match 6, ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 Prediction

Points to Consider

  • Apart from his allround value, which makes Logan van Beek a reliable fantasy asset, he will also be playing against one of the teams whom he has represented in internationals before. However, there is some concern regarding a possible injury that he suffered in their opening World Cup match.
  • Vikramjit Singh vs Left Arm Pace in ODIs: Inns - 11, Runs - 89, Avg/SR - 15/65; He will be facing one of the world's best new ball bowlers in Trent Boult, who will make things difficult for him. At the same time, if he is able to survive that phase, he can cause some damage with his attacking style of batting. He can also bowl a couple of overs if needed.
  • New Zealand have a couple of left-handers in their batting order and this can bring in both off-spinners from the Netherlands - Aryan Dutt and Colin Ackermann, especially if there is something for the bowlers as we saw in the last match at Hyderabad. Try Aryan Dutt as a differential pick in your GL teams.
  • On the other hand, Colin Ackermann will be one of our top suggestions after Bas de Leede and Logan van Beek. He was looking in fine touch against Pakistan but was dismissed while playing an unnecessary shot. We will back him for his allround value and also because he is coming into this tournament on the back of good form.

Fantasy Notes (New Zealand) - vs Netherlands, Match 6, ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 Prediction

Points to Consider

  • Kane Williamson is expected to miss this match as well. On the other hand, reports say that Tim Southee and Lockie Ferguson are now available for selection for New Zealand's second match.
  • Apart from Vikramjit Singh, the Netherlands are a completely right-hand dominant team which brings both Rachin Ravindra and Mitchell Santner into play in the middle overs. Back them both in your team and Rachin can also be considered as a differential C/VC option as he will continue to bat at Number 3 in this match.
  • 9 out of the 11 players for small leagues are almost set by default. The other two picks will be dependent on the outcome of the toss and we will make a team favouring New Zealand. In that case, 6% selected Will Young, who is the third-highest run scorer in ODIs in 2023, which is why we will suggest him as a differential.
  • We will take a call on Lockie Ferguson and Tim Southee if they are selected in the XI. Between the two, we will pick Tim Southee by default if he plays in this match.
