The Netherlands will look to take an early lead in the tri-series as they take on Scotland in the first game. Both teams will aim to start the series with a win, and we expect a close contest.

The Netherlands have the home advantage and a good record at this venue. Their players are familiar with the conditions and will look to use this to their advantage. Scotland has a strong batting lineup, which is a significant advantage.

Scott Edwards’ side won the recent tournament in Nepal. The team has made giant strides in the last 12 months, punching above their weight and defeating big opponents. Edwards would like to make a good start to this series as they build their campaign for the upcoming World Cup.

Max O’Dowd and Michael Levitt have performed well recently, and the team expects a good start from this pair. They will rely on runs from Vikramjit Singh, Sybrand Engelbrecht, and Scott Edwards in the middle order. Teja Nidamanuru, Logan van Beek, and Bas de Leede add firepower to this batting lineup, making it strong.

The team expects early wickets from Vivian Kingma and Fred Klaassen to put the Scottish side under pressure. Logan van Beek strengthens the bowling attack and will look to excel in the middle overs alongside Aryan Dutt and Bas de Leede. Michael Levitt and Sybrand Engelbrecht add depth to this attack.

On the other hand, Richie Berrington’s side is enjoying a good run in this format. They recently won a three-match series against the United Arab Emirates and will look to build on that momentum. However, they face a strong side in this game, and Berrington expects a strong performance from his players against the hosts.

The team needs a good start from George Munsey and Brandon McMullen, as the Dutch side has a strong bowling attack. Matthew Cross, Richie Berrington, and Michael Leask add experience to the middle order and will look to build partnerships. Jack Jarvis and Chris Greaves will aim to add quick runs in the lower middle order to achieve a big total.

Bradley Currie and Jack Jarvis will look to grab early wickets and put the hosts under pressure. Safyaan Sharif and Mark Watt are key bowlers and will aim to excel in the middle overs. Michael Leask and Chris Greaves must perform well in supporting roles as the Netherlands batsmen will challenge them.
