ENG vs NED Head-to-Head Record

The first match took place on February 22, 1996, and the most recent encounter was on June 22, 2022. However, past records might not necessarily reflect the outcome of this match, and the Netherlands will be eager to break their losing streak against England.

Key Players to Watch

Dawid Malan (England)


In an otherwise disappointing campaign for England, Dawid Malan has been the standout performer with the bat. He is the leading run-scorer for his team, accumulating 286 runs from seven innings at an average of 40.85 and a strike rate of 99.65. Malan has scored one century and one fifty, proving to be the lone warrior in England's batting lineup.

Bas de Leede (Netherlands)

Bas de Leede has been a crucial player for the Netherlands in this World Cup. The seam all-rounder is their leading wicket-taker with 11 wickets from six innings at an average of 30.09 and an economy rate of 7.04. De Leede showcased his talent early in the tournament with a brilliant four-wicket haul against Pakistan. He will be eager to replicate his performance in the upcoming match.

Match Prediction

Considering the current form and past performances, England is the favorite to win this match. Despite their disappointing campaign, they have a strong batting lineup and a balanced bowling attack.
