Afghanistan and Netherlands will battle it out in the second of the three-match ODI series being played at Qatar. The second fixture will be held on Sunday, January 23 at the West End Park International Cricket Stadium in Doha. I have managed to put together three profitable odds from the AFG vs NED match prediction exclusively for you.
In the first ODI, Afghanistan registered a 36-run win over Netherlands, courtesy excellent performances from Rahmat Singh, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Rashid Khan and Hashmatullah Shahidi. With this result, Afghanistan have taken a 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series. On the other hand, Netherlands will be looking to make amends and put in a strong performance in the second game of the ODI series. Afghanistan have entered the contest after their clinical win against Ireland in a three-match ODI series, held last season. The Netherlands played five ODI matches in the year 2021 in which they won three games. The teams last played a match in the 2012 ICC World Cricket League Championship, where the Afghans defeated Netherlands by five wickets. As the teams meet for the second time in the series, take a look at the top three betting tips from the Afghanistan vs Netherlands head-to-head match.
Pari Match are offering odds for winner odds in favour of Afghanistan thus making them heavy favourites to win this AFG vs NED head-to-head match.
Afghanistan has some really good players in their team to rely on. In the seven matches that the teams have played over the years, Netherlands have won two matches while the remaining five matches were taken over by the Afghani squad. In fact in the last five head-to-head matches between the teams, Afghanistan have defeated Netherlands on four occasions. 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. 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 1.11 for Afghanistan to win the AFG vs NED match prediction.
Hashmatullah Shahidi and Scott Edwards are our top two picks from the players market. Place your bets below in the AFG vs NED player betting tips.
Hashmatullah Shahidi produced a match-winning half century on his debut as Afghanistan ODI captain. His knock of 73 off 94 balls helped the side post a total of 222 for 8 on the board. Shahidi, batting at no. 4 struck four fours and two sixes as he spearheaded the innings all the way till the 50th over. The newly appointed ODI skipper is the second highest ODI run scorer for Afghanistan which makes this bet even more interesting. Over the last one year, Hashmatullah has mustered 163 runs from the three innings played, at an average of 55.00. The left handed batter has played a total of 42 ODI innings in his career and exhibited 1227 runs from them at an average of 34.08. This is his debut ODI series against Netherlands, and the 27 year old will make every effort to display his batting prowess diligently. He holds a decently good average of 35.91 from the 15 away matches he has played thus far and assembled 451 runs from them. The Afghani squad will yet again be heavily dependent on Hashmatullah Shahidi to help his side take the lead in the series going forward into the fixture. Pari Match has offered odds of 1.87 for Hashmatullah to score over 21.5 runs in the AFg vs NED match prediction.
Netherland's hope of chasing the total rested mostly on opener Scott Edwards. He scored 66 of 82 balls with eight fours in them. This was the highest to be made by a Netherland's batsman in the inaugural match of the series. The wicketkeeper batsman made his ODI debut in 2018 and has played 11 matches so far. His average from these 9 innings is 27.87 which bodes well with our bet. In fact out of these nine innings he has crossed the threshold of 17 runs in five of these games, while he did not come out to bat in two games. The 25 year old batter is playing his first match away from home and against a strong team like Afghanistan. Considering the fact that Scott Edward's is Netherland's third highest ODI run scorer is what makes this pick even more lucrative. The 11 ODI matches that Edwards has played in his career has all been under the captaincy of Pieter Seelaar. He has a staggering average of 25.33 over the last one year from the six ODI innings played and put together 152 runs from them. Pari Match has offered betting odds of 1.87 for Scott Edwards to score over 17.5 runs in the second ODI of AFg vs NED player betting tips.
