The third match of the T20IW Tri-Series will see Netherlands Women square off against Scotland Women on July 12 at Sportpark Maarschalkerweerd cricket ground, Utrecht. The game will commence at 5:30 pm IST time. The hosts are currently unbeaten in the series so far while Scotland Women are yet to register their maiden victory.
Netherlands Women were remarkable with the ball. Iris Zwilling, Robine Rijke, and Caroline de Lange delivered tight spells picking up six wickets in total. They were the leading wicket-takers from the last game and were primarily responsible for decimating Thailand’s fragile batting lineup.
Rosenan Kanoh, Nattankan Chantam, and Nannapat Koncharoenkai got starts but were unable to convert them into big scores. Furthermore, no contributions from the lower-middle order led to Thailand Women’s dramatic collapse.
Wicketkeeper-batter Heather Siegers played a sensible innings of 49(51) to steer her side to a comfortable six-wicket victory with 11 balls to spare. She was well supported by Babette de Leede who scored a well-complied knock of 24(31).

Netherlands Women vs Scotland Women Pitch Report
The pitch at Sportpark Maarschalkerweerd usually assists the batters and the bowlers equally. However, when it comes to domination, bowlers have had a much bigger say while dictating the terms. Very modest totals have been posted in five WT20I games and none of the teams failed to breach the 150-run mark.
The fielding team should judiciously use their slower bowlers and try to take full advantage of the favorable spin bowling conditions that are on offer. Run scoring may become quite a challenge on this surface.

Netherlands Women vs Scotland Women Prediction
Netherlands Women have kickstarted their winning streak by defeating a dominant Thailand Women’s side in their previous encounter. They are certainly pumped up and with some advantage on their side, they look all set to topple Scotland Women in their upcoming fixture.
Scotland Women appear to be very deflated after being blown away by Thailand cheaply. Any chance of them making a 360-degree turnaround appears slim.
