Scotland vs Netherlands Match Prediction
Netherlands will win the toss and choose to ball first and win the match. The Netherlands sealed their berth in the ICC World T20 2016 by first beating Namibia by four wickets to qualify for the final of the qualifier in Ireland and Scotland, and then sharing the title with Scotland. Since then, they have had a successful tour of the United Arab Emirates before landing in Bangalore in India, for a lengthy preparatory camp ahead of their first crucial group stage match against Bangladesh at the HPCA stadium in Dharamsala.
The Dutch selectors chose to stick with the same Netherlands squad that tasted success in the UAE, with Logan van Beek, the allrounder, the only addition to the original squad. Van Beek has 129 runs at a strike-rate of 107.50 and 40 wickets from 45 T20 games in his career. Tom Cooper, who was part of the Netherlands’ World T20 2014 campaign was also later drafted in to replace Sikander Zulfiqar, who will remain with the squad as a reserve player to gain experience at the international level.
Stephan Myburgh, one of the heroes of the campaign last edition, remains a vital part of the Peter Borren-led squad for the 2016 event. The inclusion of Roloef van der Merwe, the former South Africa allrounder, will only add to the pool of experienced campaigners. The Johannesberg-born player represented South Africa in 13 ODIs and 18 T20Is between 2009 and 2010. Their batting line-up is strong and the team is loaded with a number of good medium-pacers.
