NED vs SCO Top Picks for Dream11 Prediction And Fantasy Cricket Tips:

Calum MacLeod is a hard-hitting middle-order batsman, he can also bowl a few overs of medium pace and plays with a pretty high strike rate in the death overs.

Pieter Seelaar is a left-arm spinner and a decent middle-order batsman, he has been the captain of the side for several years and will have the responsibilities in the middle overs with both bat and bowl once again.

Richie Berrington is a good top-order batsman who can play long innings and generally bowls a few overs in the middle as well, he is a reasonable captaincy pick.

Kyle Coetzer is the skipper of the Scottish side and bats in the top-order for them, he has played the sheet anchor role for his team so far and generally plays long innings.

Rotterdam has historically been a bowling-friendly venue and batsmen struggle to score big runs, hence it will be a wise decision to pick more bowlers and all-rounders in your fantasy teams and an all-rounder will be an excellent choice for the captaincy in both small leagues as well as grand leagues.
