Netherlands vs Uganda, Match 9
Venue: Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo
Date & Time: 14th July, at 1:00 PM IST and 9:3o AM Local Time
The Netherlands has all but qualified for the semi-final of the T20 World Cup Qualifiers 2022 and that will put it just one step away from qualification. Before that, though, it still has to play against Uganda. One win and one loss from the two matches so far have put Uganda in second place in the Group B standings but it could fall out of a potential semi-final berth if it loses this match.
The best cricket betting sites all have the Netherlands as the overwhelming favorite to win this match and it is going to be hard to find value as a bettor by just betting on the winner.

NL VS UGA TEAM PREVIEWS
The Netherlands has breezed through both of its matches so far and registered two solid victories. We expect nothing but the same in this match against Uganda as well. Max O’Dowd, Bas de Leede, and Tom Cooper all played quite well to wrap up a swift chase against Hong Kong in their previous match.
This batting lineup has more than enough experience in it to be able to handle the Ugandan bowling attack.
The bowling lineup for the Netherlands is also quite solid. Logan van Beek ended up with four wickets in the previous match while Fred Klaassen was hard to face as well. The presence of multiple fast bowlers with county cricket experience has been a big plus for the Netherlands team.
It holds all the aces ahead of this contest.
Uganda was beaten soundly by PNG in its previous match and that was a massive blow to its qualification hopes. Simon Ssesazi scored 78 from just 48 deliveries but the other batters were not as enterprising. Riazat Ali Shah scored 48 from 44 balls but in the end, Uganda could only get to 160.
That was a target that PNG chased down with almost four overs to spare.
Uganda’s batting is weak and its bowling attack is very ordinary. It would be a near miracle if Uganda can get past the Netherlands in this match.
NL VS UGA TOSS PREDICTION
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
The conditions in Bulawayo are quite good and there should not be any interruptions. The pitch is a bit slow and scores have been lower than expected. We think somewhere around 160 should be quite competitive on this surface.
