Afghanistan vs Netherlands Match Preview

Both Afghanistan and the Netherlands surprised heavily-favored opponents to begin their campaigns, and they may now aim for a second win that would place the victor squarely in the running for a spot in the semifinals.

In the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, Afghanistan and the Netherlands are still in the running to advance to the knockout rounds after victories in their most recent games and early victories against top-four opponents.

Afghanistan would tie Australia and New Zealand for fourth position with eight points if they win four times today, putting them squarely in the running for a ticket in the knockout rounds.
With just two victories thus far, Netherlands’ route to the semifinals is more difficult, but two points might significantly improve their prospects.

Afghanistan vs Netherlands Head-to-Head

There have only been nine ODIs between the two teams; the Netherlands won the first one in 2009 and the only other one in 2012.

When Afghanistan batted first and kept the Netherlands at a distance during the chase, they won all three of their meetings in Doha in the beginning of last year. However, this time, the stakes are considerably higher for the two rising teams, who are both playing well.

Low-scoring games are common in the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Stadium in Lucknow, which is renowned for being a refuge for spinners and slower bowlers. Nevertheless, hitters have also benefited from the new World Cup wickets, which are constructed of black dirt.
