Netherlands vs Scotland Super 6 Match Prediction

Match prediction NED vs SCO

The Netherlands must win by a margin bigger than Scotland’s net run rate in what will be a truly seismic match for both nations. This may force them to adjust their tactics and play riskier cricket in order to secure a significant enough victory. However, it would not be unusual to see that work in Scotland’s favor, as they can just focus on winning the game by any margin. 

The Scots have been ice cold throughout the Super Six stage and have peaked at the perfect time. With all bases covered, expect Scotland to finish the job and secure their place as the lone associate nation at the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup.
