South Africa host Netherlands for a couple of ODIs and this is a very important series for the Proteas. If South Africa are to have a direct qualification for the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 in India this year, then they need to have a positive result in this series.
Notably, these are the 2 remaining ODIs of the 3-match ODI series. The first ODI had taken place in November 2021 and because of Covid-19, it had to be postponed.
The first ODI was completely washed out and now the series essentially becomes a 2-match ODI series.
As South Africa needs to complete a whitewash over their counterparts in this series, Netherlands would be hoping to play spoilers and etch a memorable victory. The Dutch cricket team is coming on the back of a 1-2 series loss against Zimbabwe.
They punched above their weight in that series and made sure that no team takes them lightly. Netherlands has the potential to stage an upset and prevent South Africa from having a direct qualification to the ICC ODI World Cup 2023.
The Temba Bavuma led South Africa side are presently 10th in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League table.
South Africa lock horns with Netherlands in the 2nd ODI at the Sahara Park Willowmoore Cricket Stadium in Benoni. The match is slated to begin from 4:30 PM (IST).
