Prediction Based on Performance

It’s likely that the match between Pakistan and Netherlands will be an exciting one. The recent form suggests that both teams are in good shape and it could go either way. However, based on their recent performances, Pakistan appears to have a slight edge over Netherlands and is expected to win the 2nd match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2023.

Pakistan has a strong batting line up, with the likes of Babar Azam leading from the front. They also have a good bowling attack with Shaheen Afridi likely to be their most successful bowler in this match. On the other hand, Netherlands has been inconsistent and is likely to struggle against a strong Pakistan side.

Overall, Pakistan appears to be the favorite for this match based on the recent form and could come out victorious. The team that puts up a better performance on the day will likely win this match.

Pakistan vs Netherlands: Winning Chance

Both the teams have the best batting and bowling. The match will be of equal force. However, there are many chances that Pakistan is stronger than the Netherlands. The recent form of Pakistan in the last 5 matches has been better than that of Netherlands.

Pakistan’s bowlers are expected to be more effective against the Dutch and have a good chance of victory. Considering their past performance, Babar Azam may also play an important role in taking Pakistan over the line. Overall, it appears that Pakistan has a better chance of winning this match.
