Just like we predicted, West Indies comfortably beat Netherlands in the first ODI to take a 1-0 lead in the 3-match series. With the series on the line, Netherlands will clash against West Indies in the must-win second ODI on Thursday, June 2. The match will commence from 2:30 PM IST at the VRA Ground, the venue for the entire series in Amstelveen. The series is a historic one as Netherlands and West Indies had never clashed against each other in a bilateral series. They had played only two ODI matches ahead of the first match on Tuesday. The third and the final match will be played on June 4.
Pieter Seelaar is leading the host team, while Nicholas Pooran is the captain of the 15-man West Indies squad which has travelled to the European nation. Shai Hope, Kyle Mayers, Rovman Powell and Romario Shepherd are few of the star West Indies and white-ball players on display in the series. As we gear up for the second ODI, I have brought you the best three betting tips from the NED vs WI 2nd ODI head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the NED vs WI head-to-head contest.
In the first match we had predicted that West Indies are set to register a comfortable win against the Netherlands and there was no disappointment there. The visitors chased down a 241-run target in 43.1 in a match which was reduced to 45 overs per side. What's more fascinating is that West Indies lost only three runs in the process. Kieron Pollard, announced his retirement during the IPL 2022, white-ball specialists Andre Russell, Shimron Hetmyer and Sunil Narine are also not part of the tour. Regardless, pacers Alzarri Joseph, Kyle Mayers, and spinner Akeal Hosein joined hands to take seven out of five Netherlands wickets. Later, experienced opener Shai Hope and in-form Brandon King smashed a hundred and a fifty respectively to thump West Indies' authority. Netherlands middle-order batsmen lacked intent and the bowling unit looked very dependent on pacer Logan van Beek. West Indies and Netherlands have now played three ODI matches till date, the former have won on each of the three occasions. They won the one in 2007 by 10 wickets and 213 balls remaining. They won the second one in 2011 by 215 runs. The two teams had lost each of their last five ODIs before the first match. Netherland were whitewashed by Afghanistan in their 3-match ODI series in January before receiving the same treatment at the hands of New Zealand in March-April. The margin of defeats for Netherlands in their last four matches are -- 7 wickets, 115 runs, 118 runs and 7-wicket (with 69 balls to spare). Before the first ODI, Netherlands last played an ODI match at the VRA Ground in August 2018 and they lost that match to Nepal. Overall, they have played 14 matches at the venue, losing nine and winning just four. One match ended in a tie. West Indies are once again looking clear favourites to win the NED vs WI 2nd ODI. A handful of their players including captain Nicholas Pooran, Romario Shepherd and Alzarri Joseph are coming fresh from IPL 2022 and will look to make their presence felt once again. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match to grab the best odds of 1.13 and place your bet on West Indies from the NED vs WI 2nd ODI head-to-head encounter.
Shamarh Brooks and Vikramjit Singh are my top two player betting tips for the NED vs WI 2nd ODI. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
West Indies opener Shamarh Brooks scored 60 runs ( three fours and two sixes) off 67 balls in the series-opener against Netherlands on Tuesday. He paced his innings perfectly and stitched a 120-run opening stand with Shai Hope. Brooks' innings and his partnership with Hope proved pivotal in West Indies’ 241-run chase in the match which was reduced to 45 overs. Ahead of the series, Shamarh Brooks last played a white-ball match against India in February this year. On a tour where West Indies failed to cross the 200-run mark in all the three ODIs, Brooks top-scored with 44 in the second match. In fact, the 33-year-old made his ODI debut in January 2022 itself. The first two matches saw him score 93 and 43 against Ireland. Overall, he has played a total of 45 List A matches, scoring 1226 runs at an average of 30.65. The Barbados-born will once again look to play a watchful innings and leave a noticeable impact in the 2nd ODI. Pari Match is offering the odds of 2.94 for Shamarh Brooks to score 50 runs. Waste no time and head to the official Pari Match website and place your bets on Shamarh Brooks from the NED vs WI head-to-head encounter.
Netherlands opener Vikramjit Singh was the second-highest run-scorer for his team in the first ODI against West Indies. The 19-year-old Punjab-born youngster scored 47 runs off 45 balls which included six four and two sixes. The Southpaw's 63-run opening partnership with Max O'Dowd paved the way for Netherlands' competitive 240 run total despite the failure of middle-order. He missed out in his first ODI fifty after getting trapped on the spin bowling of Akeal Hosein but glimpses of a bright future in store for Vikramjit was clearly evident during his stay on the crease. Vikramjit Singh has played a total of four ODI matches, scoring 122 runs at an average of 30.50. In march, he played three ODI matches against New Zealand and scored 19, 31 and 25 runs from them. Those runs came against the likes of Matt Henry, Kylie Jamieson and Ish Sodhi. On Thursday, Vikramjit Singh will have one another opportunity to score some hand runs and make a name for himself. He is surely expected to score over 19.5 runs in the match. If you feel the same, proceed to Pari Match and bet on Vikramjit Singh to score over 19.5 runs at the odds of 1.87 from the NED vs WI 2nd ODI head-to-head encounter.
