    Pakistan should top this but if England sort themselves out they could too.

    England might struggle against Nannes and RTD.

    His pace & bounce may also cause the Pakistani batsman some discomfort. They didn’t much face Dougy Bollinger and Nannes is a wee bit quicker than him. Good job the Lord's wicket is fairly placid. The Oval should have some zip though.

    I did'nt include any sub-continental team in my post because its an univeral truth that most batsmen from the sub-continent(Ind, Pak, Bangla, SL) are wobbly against genuine pace and bounce.

    RTD can't bowl at this level.

    Schiferli to take 5 poles @ 11, though.

    Don't think the Dutch quite have the depth to beat either of the test teams, but Nannes is a proven performer in this format so if he picks up a couple of early poles they could worry us or Pakistan. More likely us.

    Netherlands should compete well, to expect them to knock off either Pakistan or England is a tall ask. Will be fantastic just to see RTD and Nannes compete against the internationals.

    Can't see how the batsman will score greater than 120. Nannes will need to take 2-3 early wickets and cause some panic for the bowling attack to work.

    The Dutch batting is fairly strong for an Associate side, but one of the big hitters will have to get lucky and get a good score in quick time. If not, they will indeed struggle to 120 or so. With the bowling of Nannes, RTD and Schiferli, that's 12 overs sorted. The remaining 8, to be bowled by the likes of Seelaar, Van Bunge and Bukhari, will be the troublesome part of the match.

    Still expecting them to run England close; Pakistan must self-implode to have a chance against them, but that's of course not entirely unheard of. As long as it's not a rout, I'll be happy.

    Well i've not seen netherlands play, so i don't know who doug bowlinger or nannes are
    but if they've pace & they'll prepare a pitch which 'll 've pace & bounce(most likely they 'll in the match netherlands vs pakistan) Pakistan also has pace this time
    Umer Gul is bowling at his peak, Sohail tanveer is handful, & Shoaib Akhter too
    & i guess netherlands can't play Afridi, i know pitches 'll not spin, but Afridi doesn't spin the ball either :d
    & England Vs netherlands, well easy victory for England
    people are underestimating england
    i can see them doing alot better, maybe they'll win it
