Both these sides have made a fantastic start to their qualifying campaign with triumphs in both their opening two encounters. The Netherlands emerged victorious against Kenya and Namibia in the two games they have played. While Singapore pulled off an unlikely win over Scotland in the opener and backed that up with another win against Bermuda in their second game. However, their winning run will be under threat when they face the Dutch, who will undeniably enter the game as overwhelming favorites.
ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier
Netherlands vs Singapore
22nd October 2019
3:40 PM IST
ICC Academy, Dubai
Bright Sunny conditions with absolutely no chances of rain and temperature ranging around 33 degrees Celsius expected during the game.
There should be enough assistance in the surface for all the interested parties, which could lead to a riveting contest between bat and bowl.
No notable injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
Tobias Visee and Max O’ Dowd will play a starring role in the batting unit and should be duly supported by the likes of Ryan ten Doeschate and Roelof van der Merwe, who are integral figures in this side. Paul van Meekren will spearhead the pace attack.
Tobias Visee, Max O’Dowd, Ben Cooper, Pieter Seelaar (C), Ryan ten Doeschate, Roelof van der Merwe, Scott Edwards (wk), Brandon Glover, Fred Klaassen, Paul van Meekeren, Tim van der Gugten
Rohan Rangarajan and Surendran Chandramohan will be banked upon to provide a solid foundation at the top whilst Navin Param is adept at providing the necessary acceleration in the later stages of the inning. Janak Prakash notched three scalps in the last game and will hold the key in the bowling department.
Rohan Rangarajan, Surendran Chandramohan, Timothy David, Aritra Dutta, Manpreet Singh (wk), Navin Param, Janak Prakash, Sidhant Singh, Amjad Mahboob (C), Selladore Vijayakumar, Vinoth Bhaskaran
Max O’ Dowd is a guaranteed pick in the Dream11 Team given the massive threat he carries with the bat in hand. He has amassed 74 runs in two matches and should continue his good form in this match. In the previous game, Navin Param appeared in destructive touch in his 41-ball 72 which included seven boundaries and four maximums. He is a must-have whereas the likes of Ryan ten Doeschate, Tobias Visee, and Tim David should also be included in the Dream11 Team.
