The Netherlands are ranked fourth in the points table with four points to their name. The Netherlands used the DLS technique to defeat Oman by 74 runs in their last match. Vikramjit Singh hit his first ODI century, and Wesley Barresi came close to reaching a century as the Netherlands scored 362 runs in their innings. Ayaan Khan scored an undefeated century for Oman, although they were only able to score 246 runs in their pursuit.

Scotland Preview

Scotland, on the other hand, defeated Zimbabwe in their most recent match, and as a result, are on the verge of qualifying for the 2023 World Cup. They currently have six points, and a victory over the Netherlands will guarantee them a place in the World Cup in India in 2023.

In their previous match, Scotland defeated Zimbabwe by a score of 31 runs to win. Scotland scored 234 runs in 50 overs, losing eight wickets, with all-rounder Michael Leask leading the way with 48 runs off 34 balls. Tendai Chatara and Sean Williams both grabbed three wickets for Zimbabwe. When chasing, Zimbabwe struggled, falling to 37 for four in the first eight overs. Sean Williams, Joylord Gumbie, and captain Craig Ervine were all significant victims of Chris Sole’s outstanding bowling during the powerplay. Despite Ryan Burl’s heroic efforts, who scored 83 runs off 84 balls, Zimbabwe was bowled out for 203, therefore eliminating them from World Cup contention. This was due to a lack of assistance after Wesley Madhevere was out.
