“We are going to have a bowl. It was tough batting first. We need to take the positives from the first game, we need to stay in the battle a bit longer today. The dew factor did play in the last game. We are playing two off-spinners,” said Erasmus at the toss.

On the other hand, Netherlands made two changes in their team, bringing in Stephan Myburgh and Timm van der Gug for this match.
