MAL vs NED Dream11 Prediction: The 5th T20I of the Malaysia Tri-Nations T20 Series, 2021 will be played between Malaysia and Netherlands at the Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground, Kirtipur on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.
MAL vs NED Match Preview
Malaysia will face the Netherlands once again in the 5th match of the ongoing Nepal Tri-Nation T20I Series tournament at Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground in Kirtipur.
Malaysia has very slim chances of making it to the finals as they will be under immense pressure after losing both of their matches in the tournament. With zero wins in the tournament, they are currently languishing at the bottom of the points table with zero points in their account.
However, if they have to make it to the finals, they will not only have to win by a big margin but also hope for other results in their favour. Notably, they lost their first match against Nepal by 9 wickets and then the Netherlands beat them by 15 runs in their next match. Syed Aziz and Sharvin Muniandy will be the players to watch out for Malaysia.
The Netherlands, on the other hand, have won one game out of the two they played so far. They beat Malaysia by 15 runs in their first match but lost to Nepal by 9 wickets in their second match. However, they chased down a mammoth target of 207 against hosts Nepal (NEP) and won the game by 3 wickets in their last game. They will seal a place in the final if they beat Malaysia on Wednesday. Ben Cooper and Bas de Leede will be their top players. While Cooper smashed 55 off 35 in the last match, Bas de Leede played a match-winning knock for his side and smashed 81 off 42 balls.
