UAE Tour of Netherlands 2019 – 1st T20 Fantasy Preview

UAE has departed on a tour of Netherlands and this is an important series for both countries as both don’t often get a lot of chances to display their skills on the international stage. UAE will be the underdogs going into this series of 4 T20Is, as Netherlands has the home advantage and they also recently completed successful series of T20s and ODIs against Zimbabwe.

The first two T20s will be played at Amstelveen while we move to The Hague for the last two. Some of the players were at the Global T20 Canada tournament but have been recalled and will return only if their teams progress to the semi finals and beyond.

  • Head to head, Netherlands leads UAE 3-0.
  • 86*, 59, 30, 56 – Max O’Dowd’s 4 innings against Zimbabwe.
  • Zahoor Khan – 19 wickets in last 10 games.


Vivian Kingma must be one of the first few picks in your fantasy team, with the medium pacer having decent returns of 2 wickets in 2 games against Zimbabwe earlier this year. However, he has been heavily among the wickets in recent times, also picking up a hat-trick against Namibia and a total of 8 wickets in 2 List A games against them in December 2017.

Max O’Dowd recently played 2 ODIs and 2 T20Is against Zimbabwe and three of them ended in 50+ scores so he must be in your fantasy team for this game. As for the captaincy, the reins will be held by Pieter Seelaar who is also a must-pick because of his all-round abilities. 7 wickets and 62 runs is what he achieved in 4 games against Zimbabwe recently.


Ghulam Shabber is my wicket-keeper pick for this game as he comes off four innings against Zimbabwe including a 56 in one of the ODIs in April. He bats lower down the order than the Dutch keeper but it’s a higher value pick. One of the best value selections here is Rohan Mustafa, former captain and one of the top all-rounders in the world. He picked up 4 wickets and scored 7 runs in the 3 matches he played at the Global T20 Canada 2019.

Mohammad Naveed will captain the team and this guy was also at the 2019 GT20 Canada, but only got 2 wickets in 4 games there, both in his first game. Before him, make sure you pick Zahoor Khan in your FanFight (Sign-up and get Rs.30 FREE) fantasy team as he impressed one and all at the GT20, with 6 wickets in 3 games and he currently hasn’t gone wicketless in his last 13 professional games.
