England vs Netherlands on November 8
England will take on the Netherlands in the 40th game of the ODI World Cup 2023 on Wednesday at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. England have managed just a single win in seven games so far and are in last place in the points tally. The Netherlands are still in the race to qualify for the semi-finals and have won two out of seven games. England last faced Australia in the tournament, and both teams faced early struggles in their innings. Australia lost their first two wickets with just 38 runs on the board, but Steven Smith and Marnus Labuschagne steadied the ship with a 75-run partnership. England's Adil Rashid dismissed Smith and Josh Inglis in quick succession. Labuschagne was Australia's top scorer with 71 runs, while Cameron Green contributed 47 runs. Australia managed to post a total of 286 runs, with Chris Woakes taking four wickets for England. In response, England also lost their first two wickets early but recovered with an 84-run partnership between Dawid Malan and Ben Stokes. However, England lost wickets consistently, and Ben Stokes was their top scorer with 64 runs. They were eventually bowled out for 286 runs, resulting in a 33-run defeat. Adam Zampa was the standout bowler for Australia with three wickets, while Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, and Pat Cummins took two each, and Marcus Stoinis claimed one wicket. The Netherlands faced Afghanistan in their last game and elected to bat after winning the toss. They lost their first wicket in the very first over. Max O’Dowd and Colin Ackermann added 70 runs for the second wicket, but the Netherlands lost the next three wickets quickly, ending with a total of 179 runs. Afghanistan's Mohammad Nabi was the standout bowler with three wickets. In response, Afghanistan collected 55 runs in the Powerplay but lost early wickets. Rahmat Shah's 52 runs and Hashmatullah Shahidi's 56 runs led Afghanistan to victory by seven wickets in 31.3 overs. Afghanistan's strong batting performance secured the win.
Best economical pick – Chris Woakes bowled the second-best spell for England in the last game in the tournament. He has taken a total of eight wickets in six games at an average of 31.50, an economy of 5.92, and a strike rate of 31.87.
Top captains & vice captains – In an otherwise disastrous campaign for England, Dawid Malan has been the lone warrior with the bat for them as he’s the leading run scorer for his team. The southpaw has amassed 286 runs from seven innings at an average of 40.85 and a strike rate of 99.65 with one hundred and one fifty to his name. The seam all-rounder Bas de Leede is the leading wicket-taker for his side with 11 wickets to his name from six innings at an average of 30.09 and an economy of 7.04. Bas de Leede started his campaign with a brilliant four-wicket haul against Pakistan and will look to emulate his performance in the upcoming fixture.
Smart pick – David Willey has taken six wickets in four games so far at an average of 30.66, an economy of 5.41, and a strike rate of 34. He was the highest wicket-taker for England last time England faced the Netherlands in an ODI series.
Cautious Pick – Max O’Dowd has managed to score more than 20 runs only once in his last five games and can be avoided for this game.
My XI – Dawid Malan (Captain), Bas de Leede (Vice-Captain), David Willey, Chris Woakes, Jonny Bairstow, Scott Edwards, Jos Buttler, Aryan Dutt, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Adil Rashid
