NED vs NZ 2nd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips
After an absorbing IT20 on Thursday to begin the series ended with New Zealand winning by 16 runs on Thursday, the Netherlands play host again 24 hours later at Sportpark Westvliet in the second and final match of the series. The opening game was a low-scoring affair with only 280 runs scored and 17 wickets falling. Read on as we preview this clash. The fixture begins at 17:00 local time.
The Netherlands have been in the chasing pack of teams just below the Test playing nations in recent years. We expect them to give New Zealand some worries again but it will be very hard for them to win this match.
New Zealand are one of the most professional units in international cricket and constantly get the most out of themselves. They may not have a team packed with stars but they nearly always manage to get the job done.

NED vs NZ Match Toss Prediction
New Zealand kept up their recent habit of choosing to bat first after winning the toss in the opening match. We expect both teams to want to bat first in this game, particularly the Netherlands who will want to post a total then put the visitors under pressure.
NED vs NZ Pitch Report
With 148-7 a winning total on Thursday, we again expect any score over 160 to be too many to chase on this slow and sticky wicket in the Netherlands.
Sunny, calm and not too humid from start to finish in Voorburg. The conditions at the beginning of the game will be identical to those at the end.

Netherlands Team News & Playing 11
NED Team News
Often when an associate level side comes up against a full member, one of the bowling attack gets taken to pieces but that was not the case on Thursday with none of the Netherlands bowlers going at over nine runs per over. There are more runs in this side and we expect to see an unchanged XI for the hosts.
NED Key Players
- Max O’Dowd- it did not come off for the long-haired opener in the first T20I but he will relish the opportunity to lock horns again with Blair Tickner who dismissed him cheaply.
- Bas de Leede- it has been a summer to remember for the young batter and his form showed no signs of dropping off on Thursday, He struck five fours and two sixes on his way to the highest score of the game.
- Logan van Beek- after topping the wickets in the Zimbabwe tournament in July, van Beek claimed the wickets of Jimmy Neesham and Ish Sodhi in the opening match of the series.
NED Team Form
Although the game ended in defeat, the Netherlands will be pleased that they pushed New Zealand all the way and will take positives into this clash.
Netherlands Predicted Playing 11

New Zealand Team News & Playing 11
NZ Team News
As we saw during the white-ball series in Ireland and Scotland earlier on this tour, we expect Lockie Ferguson to be rested, particularly with this game coming only 24 hours after the previous match. On a tough batting wicket, we expect Michael Bracewell to come in and add some additional batting firepower.
NZ Key Players
- Finn Allen- the opener could only contribute 8 from 11 balls on Thursday but will want to make amends in this game before linking up with Southern Brave in The Hundred.
- Martin Guptill- the experienced opener has had pundits and fans claiming his career at the highest level is over for many years but he always proves them wrong. Thursday’s performance where he top scored for his side can be added to the list.
- Blair Tickner- the medium fast bowler dismissed all of the Netherlands’ top four batters on this pitch on Thursday. He registered his career best T20I figures and will have given the home batters nightmares overnight.
NZ Team Form
Although the Netherlands were a far stronger proposition than Scotland last week, New Zealand marched on to register their sixth successive T20I win.

Although the Netherlands came up short in the opening match, when they were 64-3, halfway through the 11th over, chasing 149 for victory, they did have a chance. We expect the hosts to get themselves into a good position again at some point but are backing New Zealand to get the win to seal a 2-0 victory.
