Afghanistan and Netherlands will face off in the final ODI of the three match series at West End Park International Cricket Stadium, Doha on January 25. I have picked out the best bet from the AFG vs NED head-to-head match ahead of the fixture for you.
This will be the third international ODI game played in the venue and the pitch is expected to offer a lot for the spinners. The first two games went in favour of Afghanistan who capitalized with their bowling while the batters were relentless in scoring as many runs as they could on the venue. Meanwhile, the Netherlands did not have the best of times in the T20 World Cup 2021 where they suffered three straight losses and fell out of the race during the qualification round. The last five clashes were one side favouring Afghanistan who led the tally by 4-1. As for now take a look at the top AFG vs NED betting tip handpicked for you.
Pari Match are offering the best winner odds in favour of Afghanistan thus making them match favourites to win this AFG vs NED head-to-head match.
Afghanistan has a numerous amount of batting and bowling talents within their ranks. In the eight matches that the teams have played over the years, Netherlands have won two matches while the remaining six matches were taken over by the Afghani squad. This accounts for 75% success rate for the Afghani squad. In fact in the last five head-to-head matches between the teams, Afghanistan have defeated Netherlands on four occasions, and with a considerable margin. The batting unit which features Najibullah Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi and Usman Ghani account for a pretty strong team on paper. In the opening match of the series, captain Hashmatullah Shahidi and Rahmat Shah's crucial half centuries helped Afghanistan post a decent total on the board. After being asked to bat first the Afghani team posted a total of 222 for 8 by the end of the fifty overs which Netherland’s failed to chase. The 2nd ODI witnessed a similar fate where Netherlands were unable to chase AFG’s total of 237 runs and fell short by 48 runs from the victory. Considering the fact that Netherland has played most of their cricket in the T20 format, moving to the 50 over format is a bit tricky business for them. This gives Afghanistan a leverage to win the limited over series. Pari Match has offered betting odds of 1.10 for Afghanistan to win the AFG vs NED match prediction.
Let us take a deeper dive at the best player betting odds for the AFG vs NED head-to-head match.
Scott Andrew Edwards made his first-class debut for the Netherlands against Namibia in the 2015–17 ICC Intercontinental Cup. Edwards is fairly new and has a total number of 19 List A games to his name where he amassed 473 runs at an average of 27.82. The fact that his average escalates in ODIs, makes it a safe bet to pick. He has played a total of 10 ODIs where he scored 309 runs at a high average of 34.33. This exceeds our target and does the justice for this lucrative betting tip. Netherland's hope of chasing the total rested mostly on opener Scott Edwards. He scored 66 of 82 balls with eight fours in the first ODI of the series. This was the highest to be made by a Netherland's batsman in the inaugural match of the series. He batted even better in the 2nd ODI with 86 runs off 120 balls in the game. He lacked the support from his team which left him the sole aggregator of runs in the team. Considering the fact that Scott Edward's is Netherland's third highest ODI run scorer is what makes this pick even more lucrative. Pari Match has offered betting odds of 1.87 for Scott Edwards to score over 19.5 runs in the third ODI of AFG vs NED player betting tips.
Hashmatullah Shahidi is a part of the new and reformed Afghanistan squad who have been successful in climbing up to a good reputation in international cricket. He was one of the eleven cricketers to play in Afghanistan's first ever Test match, against India, in June 2018. The batter has a total experience of 57 List A games mustering 1652 runs in those innings averaging high at 33.04. His average escalates playing ODIs where he has scored 1281 runs in 43 innings till date averaging at 34.62. This aligns well with our betting tip. He is in spectacular form as observed from recent innings of 61, 82 and 10 runs in a three match series against Ireland in 2021. His knocks in the first two ODIs are a testament of his explosive batting form where he smashed 73 and 54 runs in those matches. That being said, Shahidi will go in as the best player betting tip as Pari Match offers the odds of 1.87 for him to score over 22.5 runs from the AFG vs NED match predictions.
