Pakistan and Netherlands are all set to play their first game of the ODI World Cup 2023. Pakistani team has been in Hyderabad since last week and is enjoying their stay. Dutch players have also reached Hyderabad and did a practice session at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium.
Pakistani team is under pressure after awful performance in Asia Cup and warmup matches of World Cup. They have played two warmup games against New Zealand and Australia and lost both games. Their bowlers are struggling to take wickets and leaking a lot of runs in the middle overs. The only good sign is their captain, Babar Azam, is back in form and played two beautiful innings in warm up games. The win in this game can boost their confidence, which will help them in upcoming matches.
On the other hand, both warm games of Netherlands were affected due to rain. Their match against India was washed out due to rain, and the game against Australia also ended without any result. So, this game will be the first proper chance for them to show their potential.

PAK vs NET Pitch Report Hyderabad Stadium
Most of the bowlers struggle at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium Hyderabad due to flat pitches. We have seen very high-scoring games at this venue. Fast bowlers especially struggle a lot at this venue, as Haris Rauf conceded more than 90 runs in the last warmup game against Australia. Leg break spinner will be a little helpful in the middle overs and may succeed to get some breakthrough for the team.
Overall, this will be a scoring game, and the chasing team is more likely to win the game.
