South Africa vs Netherlands, ICC ODI World Cup 2023: Dharamshala Weather Forecast And HPCA Stadium Pitch Report

After thrashing Sri Lanka and Australia in style, South Africa are now gearing up for a comparatively easier challenge in the ICC ODI World Cup. In their upcoming appearance, Temba Bavuma and Co. will square off against the Netherlands on October 17. The Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala will host the 50-over contest on Tuesday at 2 PM IST. While South Africa will hope to continue their dominant run, the Netherlands will head to the game with the aim of picking up their maiden victory in this World Cup.


The Dutch unit has featured in two matches so far and endured defeats on both occasions, courtesy of a below-par performance from their batters. However, their bowling department, especially the new-ball pacers, could show their strength in the previous matches. In the campaign opener, the Netherlands restricted Pakistan to 286 runs but failed to chase down the target.

On the other hand, South Africa enjoyed run-fests in their previous games. They produced a 400-plus score in the opening game before posting 311 runs against Australia. The Proteas bowlers shone in the last match as they bowled out the Aussies for 177 runs.

Pitch Report:

The pitch at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala has assisted the batters so far in this ODI World Cup. Going by the nature of the surface, we can expect a high-scoring clash between South Africa and the Netherlands. The captain winning the toss will certainly consider the dew factor and will preferably opt to field first. Spinners will need to battle hard for each scalp on this track, while pacers will enjoy bowling here.
