South Africa vs Netherlands 1st ODI Betting Tips 26/11/2021

Teams Status

South Africa

After an unlucky T20 World Cup campaign that saw them fail to reach the semi-finals despite winning four of their five games, South Africa return to international cricket with a simple home assignment against the Netherlands.

The Proteas will be without a number of their regulars – most of them are being rested after a taxing T20 season.

Temba Bavuma, Aiden Markram, Quinton de Kock, Rassie van der Dussen, Kagiso Rabada, and Anrich Nortje were already left out, and then Lizard Williams and Lungi Ngidi were ruled out due to injuries, leaving Keshav Maharaj a very young group to lead.

He will, however, have the services of Wayne Parnell at his disposal, with the left-arm seamer having returned to the national fold following a Kolpak stint.

The Netherlands

The Netherlands were thrashed in each of their three T20 World Cup matches, which was hard to take considering two of those teams – Ireland and Namibia – were pretty much the same size.

But this series against South Africa is a different format. It’s longer, which means in theory it should spell more trouble for the Dutch, which like most minnows, do better in fewer overs.

The Netherlands’ ODI record for the year has been mixed. They’ve played five and won three, with their defeats sandwiched among victories.

After a long time, the Dutch won’t have Ryan ten Doeschate in their playing eleven although he will still be in the dugout as a team mentor. The 41-year-old hung up his gloves after the World Cup.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: David Miller to score more than 31.5 runs @ 1.87

David Miller averages a staggering 52.82 in ODIs played in South Africa. After this state, we should not have to justify this tip any further. The man, who loves it at home, is up against a bona fide minnow such as the Netherlands. Runs should flow. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.

Tip: Any player to score 100 – No @ 1.92

We’re not saying runs will not flow, but a 100 of them for a single batsman in the very first game of the series seems a bit unlikely, considering that South Africa are missing the cream of their batting talent and the Dutch don’t even have the main course, let alone any cream. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.

Conclusion

South Africa’s depletion means this could be a more even contest than before but even then the Proteas should win comfortably.
