The two teams
In the first match of the Super 10 stage at the World Cup, Pakistan will take on the Netherlands. This will be a rematch of sorts, as the two teams had met earlier in the tournament in a group stage match which Pakistan won by 6 wickets. The Netherlands will be looking to exact revenge and prove that they are the better team. Pakistan, on the other hand, will be looking to continue their winning ways and build momentum heading into the latter stages of the tournament. Both teams have some good players who can make an impact on the match. For Pakistan, their bowling attack will be led by Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz, while their batting will be dependent on the likes of Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal. The Netherlands also have some good bowlers in their ranks, with Timm van der Gugten being one to watch out for. Their batting revolves around Stephan Myburgh and Ben Cooper. It promises to be an exciting match between two evenly matched teams.
Head to head
In the 2014 World Cup, the Netherlands and Pakistan will go head-to-head in a group stage match. This will be the fourth time the two sides have met in the tournament, with Pakistan holding a 2-1 lead in previous meetings. Pakistan’s most recent victory over the Netherlands came in the group stage of the 2010 World Cup, when they won by 7 wickets. Younis Khan was the star of that match, scoring an unbeaten century to lead his side to victory. The Netherlands will be looking to exact revenge on Pakistan for that defeat, and they will also be hoping to improve on their record against Asian teams at World Cups. They have only ever won one out of six matches against Asia at the tournament, and that came against minnows Bangladesh in 2007. With both teams looking to bounce back from disappointing performances at the last World Cup, this promises to be an exciting match.
Pakistan and the Netherlands have a history of playing each other in the World Cup, with the latter winning all three times. The most recent encounter was in 2015, when the Netherlands won by four wickets. Some of the key players for Pakistan in this match are: -Babar Azam: One of the world’s best batsmen, Babar is currently ranked number one in ICC’s ODI rankings. He is coming off a strong performance in the Asia Cup, where he was named Player of the Tournament. -Imam-ul-Haq: Another key batsman, Imam is fresh off a century against New Zealand in the UAE. -Hasan Ali: One of Pakistan’s best bowlers, Hasan will be looking to make an impact in this match.

He will be supported by an explosive batting line-up that includes the likes of Ben Cooper, Max O’Dowd, and Tobias Visee. With powerful hitters like these in their ranks, the Netherlands will be a force to reckon with in the tournament. Pakistan, on the other hand, will be led by Sarfaraz Ahmed. He will have plenty of firepower at his disposal as well, with players like Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, and Babar Azam in the side. Pakistan also have a dangerous bowling attack that features the likes of Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz. With two such evenly matched teams set to do battle in the T20 World Cup, it promises to be a thrilling contest.
Pakistan vs Netherland

Pakistan: Babar Azam (c), Shadab Khan, Asif Ali, Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Wasim, Naseem Shah, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shan Masood, Usman Qadir
Netherlands Squad: Scott Edwards(C), Colin Ackermann, Tom Cooper, Bas de Leede , Brandon Glover, Fred Klaassen, Teja Nidamanuru, Max O’Dowd, Tim Pringle, Shariz Ahmad, Logan van Beek, Timm van der Gugten, Roelof van der Merwe, Paul van Meekeren, Vikramjit Singh
This tournament has been no less than a nightmare for the Pakistani team. First they lost a nail biting contest to India and then against Zimbabwe. A loss which will haunt the Pakistani team for years to come as they have a very good record of winning matches against Zimbabwe but this time Zimbabwean team absolutely bamboozled the Pakistani team and defended 130 runs against Pakistan. Since 2021, Pakistan has lost only 2 matches while chasing, both against Zimbabwe.
There have been ups and downs in the performance of the Pakistani team in previous few matches. There were questions raised on the performance of the team especially Babar Azam. Rizwan is averaging more than 71 in the T20 format since 2021 and has been a brilliant opener but his most recent performance has raised questions too. The middle order of the Pakistani team is dodgy as well and continues to disappoint the fans with their performance and we had seen in the match against India and Zimbabwe as well that Muhammad Nawaz couldn’t do something special in the first match.
Muhammad Nawaz has been brilliant with ball and ball since Asia Cup but like other Pakistani players, seems like he has lost his form, which isn’ta good omen for Pakistan and he needs to perform for his team. Shadab Khan, as seen in the match against Zimbabwe, again failed to finish the match for his team. Pakistani pace bowling is world famous these days. With the return of Shaheen Afridi in the team, the pace bowling department of the Pakistani team has become more lethal. Haris Rauf, Naseem Shah and Muhammad Wasim, all these bowlers can easily bowl above 140kph. The only good thing to come out from the Pakistani team in previous 2 matches is their pace bowling which continues to impress though Shaheen Afridi remained wicket-less in both the matches.
The Dutch team lost their first match to Bangladesh and second to India. This time their opponent will be Pakistan which are currently demoralized due to their 2 losses in the tournament.
The top run scorer from the Netherlands team in the previous few years is Max O’Dowd. He has 309 runs in 10 matches with an average of 30.90. Another fine batter of the Dutch team is Bas De Leede who has 296 runs in just 9 innings and holds an average of 49.3. In the bowling department, Fred Klassen is their main man. His bowling record shows that he has 12 wickets in 8 matches while Logan Van Beek is their top wicket taker. He has 13 wickets in 8 matches and could play really well. We have now seen the performance of some of these above-mentioned players in the qualifying round of the T20 World Cup 2022 where Netherlands with 3 others teams progressed to the Super-12 stage of the tournament.
The Pakistani team, though not in the it’s best form, are surely favorites for this contest. No matter what, they are still an experienced side with better bowling and batting than Netherlands but as we have seen that anything can happen in this World Cup. There have been quite few upsets in this event. So, we cannot rule the Netherlands team out of the equation.
