Pakistan will take on Netherlands in the second match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Friday.
The Babar Azam-led side will hope to get its campaign off to a winning start after losing both warm-up games since landing in India for the World Cup. Netherlands, on the other hand, will hope to compete and give Pakistan a fight. The Dutch were short of game time ahead of the tournament as both its warm-up games were affected by rain and they last played an ODI in early July - the World Cup Qualifiers final.
TOSS: Netherlands wins toss, opts to bowl
Pakistan’s bowling will be under the scanner after New Zealand chased down a 346-run target and Australia hammered 351 against it in the warm-up matches. With Pakistan likely to persist with Shabad Khan, despite his indifferent form, leg-spinner Usama Mir could get a look in ahead of a batter in the playing XI.
