Pakistan will take on Netherlands in the dead rubber third ODI on Sunday, August 21 at the Hazelaarweg, Rotterdam. The visitors took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 3-match series by winning the second ODI by seven wickets on Thursday.
While hosts Netherlands have now lost 14 ODI matches on the trot, Pakistan have won each of their last seven games in the format. The two sides have played five ODIs against each other till date and Pakistan have emerged victorious on all the occasions. The matches are providing Pakistan with the perfect dress rehearsal opportunity for the all-important Asia Cup 2022 which kicks off from August 27. As we gear up for the third ODI, I have brought to you the best three betting tips from the NED vs PAK 3rd ODI head-to-head encounter.
Scott Edwards, Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman are my top three player betting tips for the NED vs PAK 3rd ODI. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
Netherlands opener Vikramjit Singh scored 65 runs off 98 balls in the first ODI. However, he failed to launch himself in the second ODI and was dismissed for one run, however, we expect him to bounce back in the third and final ODI. His innings in the first T20I which consisted of five boundaries was full of maturity as the young batter kept his calm and composure despite wickets falling from the other end. Two wickets fell in the powerplay overs and one more before the end of 13th. Vikramjit partnered for 97 runs for the fourth wicket with Tom Cooper. 19-year-old Vikramjit has played 11 ODI matches till date and scored 317 runs at an average of 28.81. He has two fifties to his name in his short career. Vikramjit failed to do much in ODI matches against England and New Zealand recently, however, he scored 47, 46 and 54 against West Indies in May-June. Having scored 65 runs against the likes of Haris Rauf, Naseem Shah and Shadab Khan would have given the southpaw a lot of confidence and that might help him to score at least over 21 runs in the third ODI. The batting average of Vikramjit increased to 30.25 in eight matches in the Netherlands. The chances of the Punjab-born cricketer getting to a good score are high in the third ODI. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.832 for Vikramjit Singh to score over 21.5 runs from the NED vs PAK 3rd ODI head-to-head encounter.
Ahead of the first ODI we had predicted that Babar Azam would be among one of the highest run-scorers in the first ODI and he did not disappoint us by scoring 74 runs off 85 balls. His innings which included six fours and a six played a crucial role in firing Pakistan to 314/6 in 50 overs. We predicted the same ahead of the second ODI and the star batter smashed another fifty against the Netherlands. His 57-run knock consisted of seven boundaries. The innings helped Pakistan chase down a 187-run target in 33.4 overs for the loss of three wickets. The Pakistan captain is currently the number one ranked ODI batsman in the world. He has played a total of 91 ODI matches and scored 4573 runs at an average of 59.38. He has 17 hundreds and 21 fifties to his name in the format. In 2022, he has played a total of eight ODIs so far and scored 588 runs at an average of 84. He is carrying a strike rate of 94.38 in the period and has scored three hundreds and four fifties. The 27-year-old's last seven scores in the format are 57, 74, 1, 77, 103, 105* and 114. The Lahore-born star hadn't played an ODI match against Netherlands or in the Netherlands before Tuesday. The right-hand batter entered the series on the back of a few good Test outings against Sri Lanka in July. In the first Test match he scored 119 and 55 runs in the two innings, whereas in the second Test, the star batter played an 81-run knock in the second innings. The immensely talented cricketer looks set to score over 50 runs in the third ODI against Netherlands on Sunday. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match and grab the odds of 1.87 for Babar Azam to score over 50.5 runs from the NED vs PAK 3rd ODI head-to-head encounter.
Fakhar Zaman smashed 109 runs off as many deliveries in the first ODI against Netherlands. His starry innings consisted of 12 fours and a six. However, he failed to get going in the second ODI and was dismissed for three runs off 10 balls. However, we expect Zaman to fire once again on Saturday. The Pakistan opener has scored 2602 runs at an average of 45.64 in 61 ODIs. His strike rate in the format is an impressive 94.13 and he has hit seven hundreds and 14 fifties. In 2022, the southpaw played eight ODI matches and scored 277 runs at an average of 34.62. In 2021, Zaman scored 365 runs in six matches at an average of 60.83. Ahead of the first ODI, he had got starts in his last five outings (35, 17, 11, 17 and 67) but failed to convert it into big scores. A big score was anticipated from the batter and exactly the same happened on Tuesday. The 32-year-old on Saturday would again have a golden opportunity to spend some quality time in the middle before meeting India in the all-important Asia Cup 2022 on August 28. Zaman hadn't played in the Netherlands prior to the first match but considering his record in England, we had predicted that the batter would also leave an impact on the 3-match series. In England, where conditions are a bit similar like Netherlands, he has played 20 ODI matches and scored 701 runs at an average of 35.05. Zaman looks set for a good outing in the third ODI against a struggling Netherlands team. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.832 for Fakhar Zaman to score over 41.5 runs from the NED vs PAK 3rd ODI head-to-head encounter.
