SA vs NED Dream11 Team Prediction | 1st ODI | Match Preview

South Africa and Netherland will play in the 1st ODI match of the Netherlands tour of South Africa 2021 at SuperSport Park, Centurion. We will cover SA vs NED Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

South Africa:

South Africa was unlucky not to qualify for the Semi-Finals in the World Cup based on run rate. They have made a lot of changes to the squad for the series against the Netherlands.

The right-arm off-break bowler, Keshav Maharaj, will be leading the side in the ODI series. Janneman Malan and Reeza Hendricks are likely to open the innings for South Africa. David Miller, Zubayr Hamza, and Dwayne Pretorius will be crucial in the middle-order.

In the bowling department Wayne Parnell, Andile Phehlukwayo, Keshav Maharaj, and Sisanda Magala will play important role.

There are many inexperienced players in the South African squad, and it will be a challenging series for them.


The Netherlands had a disappointing T20 World Cup as they lost all the matches in the qualifier stage and did not qualify for the Super12.

The bowling all-rounder Pieter Seelaar is the team’s captain and hopes to improve the team’s performance. Max O’Dowd opens the innings for the team and provides a good start along with Stephan Myburgh. Ackermann, Scott Edwards, and van der Merwe are the remaining crucial players.  

In the bowling department, Fred Klassen and Seelaar will play a crucial role. The remaining bowlers need to improve, and they can have a chance to win a match against South Africa.
