SA vs NED 1st ODI Predictions & Betting Tips

South Africa return to cricketing action after an early exit at the recently concluded World T20 with a three match ODI series against the Netherlands, the first of which is scheduled to be held at the SuperSport Park in Centurion on Friday, the 26th of November. The fixture forms a part of ICC’s latest endeavour the Cricket World Cup Super League, meaning the Dutch will be hunting for a result with all their life given that it might help them claim a spot in the next World Cup eventually. Here, I have collated the three best Netherlands tour of South Africa betting tips for you from the SA vs NED 1st ODI match prediction.

The two protagonists last played an ODI against each other way back in 2013, where the Proteas had trundled home to a comfortable victory, their fourth against the Dutch in history. They have never lost to Netherlands in their history in 50-over cricket, and will be hoping to keep that record intact come the end of the ongoing series. However, it might not be as easy as it looks on paper considering their recent struggles. South Africa have failed to win their last three bilateral ODI series, including a 1-1 draw against Netherlands earlier this year. They have slipped to fifth in the ICC rankings, 15 points adrift of the next team India. For comparison, Netherlands defeated the same Irish squad 2-1 just before they clashed against the Proteas. Nevertheless, they are still ranked a paltry 11th in the rankings and will need to be at their absolute best to have a chance of outplaying their upcoming opponents. Here are my three best betting tips from the SA vs NED match prediction.

SA vs NED Player Bets:

Considering the huge disparity in strength between our two protagonists, most team bet odds on offer are expected to be underwhelming and hardly exciting. Thus, after going through all available options, I have picked the three perfect player bet tips for you from the SA vs NED head to head encounter.

Janneman Malan to excel at the top of the order

The opener has quickly established himself as a mainstay in the South African batting lineup, excelling in building his innings and anchoring the side. Janneman Malan has played just 10 ODIs so far, but has already racked up 645 runs at an astronomical average of 92.14. Six of those games have come in 2021 alone, where he has tallied 493 averaging an unbelievable 98.60. Four of his six innings have produced 50-plus scores, including 2 incredible centuries. In July against Ireland, Malan played the innings of a lifetime, rushing his way to a mammoth 177* of just 169 deliveries, registering 16 fours and lacin his innings with six huge hits. Plying his trade for Boland while the national team was playing the World T20, the 25-year-old recently scored a dominating double century in a first-class game against the Knights. He averages 57.42 in the domestic tournaments across formats this season and is simply in stellar form. Thus, Janneman Malan looks primed to excel for South Africa in the first ODI versus Netherlands.

Max O’Dowd to score big runs

Even though the World T20 ended in disappointment for the Dutch owing to a group stage exit, it certainly helped Max O’Dowd announce his talents to the world. The opener registered two half-centuries in three games, ending with 123 runs at an excellent average of 41. However, this was just the culmination of a great string of form throughout the year that is reflected in his ODI numbers as well. O’Dowd has played five ODIs in 2021, racking up an amazing tally of 185 runs at a terrific average of 37. All in all, he has played seven ODIs donning orange in his career, aggregating 320 runs at an average of 55. In his latest series versus Ireland, he produced scores of 23, 36 and 36, playing a crucial role in helping his team earn the series victory. All in all, the 27-year-old has accumulated 349 runs in his last 10 international innings across formats at an average of 34.90. This seems to be just the beginning of a wonderful international career and Max O’Dowd looks all set to break the barriers against South Africa in the first ODI. You can capitalize on this SA vs NED player bet tip at PariMatch with their typically amazing odds which will be made available soon.

Stephen Myburgh’s experience to shine through

With a host of regulars missing from the Proteas bowling lineup, Stephen Myburg will be looking forward to re-establish himself as one of Netherlands’ best ever. The opener has had a pretty successful year in the 50-over format of the game, collecting 152 runs in his kitty from 5 games at an excellent average of 30.40. His latest innings was a gritty 74 against Ireland occupying the crease for more than 43 overs, playing the key role in a challenging chase for the side. Overall, Myburgh has played 18 ODIs in his career, scoring 446 runs at an average of 26.23. The 37-year-old was a part of the squad when they last faced the Proteas in an ODI, registering a well played 27 to set a nice foundation for the coming batsmen. It would certainly help the batsman that he is well aware of conditions in the African country, having represented KwaZulu-Natal Inland in the South African domestic circuit. Thus, with a career List A average of 29.79 and some excellent performances of late, veteran Stephen Myburg looks all set to give the Proteas bowlers a run for their money in the first ODI. To take on this SA vs NED player bet tip, head to PariMatch and accept their fantastic odds once released.
