ICC World Cup 2023: Who’ll win England vs Netherlands match? Prediction, fantasy team, pitch report and more

Defending world champions England are sitting at the bottom of the points table with 2 points from 7 matches. Nothing has worked in favour of the team as they have to wait for another 4 years for World Cup redemption. However, there is another issue.

England are at the risk of losing out on the Champions Trophy 2025, to be held in Pakistan. The top 8 World Cup teams will advance to the tournament. Sri Lanka are ranked 8th, The Netherlands 9th and England 10th in this World Cup. If England win the next 2 matches, they may end up among the Top 8 and qualify for the Champions Trophy 2025. The Dutch, on the other hand, will have to win for the same reasons.
