SA VS NED 1st ODI: South Africa will be hosting the Netherlands for the first ODI game on Friday. Moreover, the first ODI will be played at Centurion, South Africa.
South Africa are coming into this fixture after a very strong T20 World Cup performance in the UAE recently. Though the Proteas did not start the tournament well but they had a significantly stronger finish in the ending phase.
Moreover, South Africa went on to play a phenomenal brand of cricket in the later stages. Players like Aiden Markram and Anrich Nortje were brilliant for the Proteas through the T20 World Cup 2021. But despite that South Africa could not reach the semi-finals due to poor run rate.
The Netherlands are coming into this fixture after a fairly disappointing T20 World Cup campaign. Moreover, the Dutch team failed to register a single win in the qualifying stages of the tournament. As a result of that, the Netherlands could not qualify for the Super 12 stage in the T20 World Cup.
