NL vs HKG Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Oct 10, 2019
The Netherlands and Hong Kong are going to be playing against each other as the Oman T20 Series comes to an end. Neither of the two sides has managed to win a game and their performances have been quite disappointing, to say the least.
Both the teams have an opportunity to end the Oman T20 Series on a high and take away something to build on before the T20 World Cup Qualifiers start.
Netherlands vs Hong Kong T20 match is going to be played at Al Amerat Cricket Ground Oman Cricket (Ministry Turf 1), Al Amarat, Oman on the 10th of October 2019.
NL vs HKG Team Previews
Losses to Nepal and now Oman would have dented the confidence of the Netherlands side massively. Even taking the loss of Ben Cooper from the batting order into account, Netherlands would be worried about its chances heading into the T20 World Cup Qualifiers.
The Netherlands batting has looked very poor. Not a single batsman has been able to stamp his authority on the match. The top-order batsmen have got starts in almost all the matches but they have not converted them into big scores.
Hong Kong’s bowling is among the weakest in the tournament and so this is another opportunity for the Netherlands batsmen to make amends.
Max O Dowd, Tobias Visee, and Colin Ackerman should be able to perform better in this match.
Not having enough runs to defend has hurt the Netherlands bowlers but overall Roelof van der Merwe, Fred Klaassen, and Paul van Meekeren have not been too bad.
Netherlands Playing 11
Pieter Seelaar, Scott Edwards, Brandon Glover, RE Van Der Merwe, Colin Ackermann, Shane Snater, Max O'Dowd, Antonius Staal, Tobias Visee, Fred Klaassen, Timm van der Gugten.
Hong Kong’s batsmen put up its best performance so far against Ireland but it was in reply to the highest score of the tournament and so just was not enough. Hong Kong’s bowlers have suffered the most in the tournament and have the worst economy rate.
They will be hoping for a better performance against the Netherlands batting lineup which has struggled against every single side.
Ehsan Khan, Kinchit Shah, and Kyle Christie are the three best bowlers for Hong Kong.
Haroon Arshad and Ehsan Khan made some decent contributions in the previous match but the match had already been lost by then. Hong Kong’s batting has been very poor and there seems to be a lack of quality in the lineup.
Nizakat Khan, Waqas Barkat, and Kinchit Shah were the batsmen that were expected to make the most runs for Hong Kong.
This is as good a chance for them to hit form ahead of the T20 World Cup Qualifiers.
Hong Kong Playing 11
Scott McKechnie, Nizakat Khan, Raag Kapur, Shahid Wasif, Aarush Bhagwat, W Barkat, KD Shah, Ehsan Khan, Haroon Arshad, Kyle Christie, Mohammad Ghazanfar.

Pitch and Conditions
Plenty of heat, a flat batting pitch that does not change much, and no chance of rain are what the players can expect in this match. Neither team has made the most of the batting conditions on offer but perhaps playing against a weaker bowling attack will allow them to get some decent scores in this match.
NL vs HKG Betting Tips
There is nothing to choose between these two sides just on the basis of this tournament. Both of them have been in terrible form and have lost all their matches. Overall, though, we believe that the Netherlands has a deeper talent pool and a better chance to win this match.
Bet on Netherlands to win.
