It is the 2nd ODI of the three-match series, which had to be canceled midway in 2021 due to the rise of Covid cases in South Africa. The South Africans have to win this series to earn a direct entry into the upcoming World Cup and have named a full-strength squad for the side. They come here with a 1-1 draw against the West Indies. The Netherlands come here with a 1-2 series loss against Zimbabwe, and they will look to challenge the hosts
The Netherlands hasn't done well in ODIs over the last three years. They have won twice in the last 20 games. It will be a big challenge for them to defeat the South Africans in the latter's backyard. The hosts will also be under pressure, given the stakes involved in this game. It remains to be seen if the Netherlands can cause an upset.
Temba Bavuma's side will be under pressure in this game. They are the only major team yet to qualify for the marque tournament. They must win this series 2-0 and need a good show from their players. Bavuma would want his side to play their natural game, as their opponents aren't in good form.
Openers Reeza Hendricks and Quinton de Kock have done well in recent games, and the side will need a good start from the pair. The middle order is strong for the side, and they will expect good performances from Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen, and Aiden Markram. David Miller and Wayne Parnell need to score runs in the finishers' role
Lungi Ngidi and Kagiso Rabada shall look to use the new ball and put the Netherlands under pressure. Early wickets from them will give an edge to the side. Anrich Nortje has an important role in the middle overs with Wayne Parnell and Sisanda Magala. Markram is the lone spinner in the team and must do well in the supporting role.

Scott Edwards' team faces a massive challenge in this game. They won a game in Zimbabwe but haven't looked in the best of form for more than two years. Their batsmen aren't used to playing against such as strong bowling attack. Edwards would like a positive approach from his players as they look to win this game.
Max O'Dowd and Vikramjit Singh have struggled and must do well in this game at the top. The side will expect a good show from Wesley Barresi Musa, Ahmed, and Tom Cooper in the middle order. Teja Nidamanuru can hit the ball well, and he must add quick runs with Scott Edwards and Shariz Ahmed down the order.
Fred Klaassen and Paul van Meekeren will need to deliver early wickets for the side to challenge the South Africans. Roelof van der Merwe and Vikramjit Singh need to bowl good spells in the middle overs. The side will also expect a good show from Nidamanuru and Shariz Ahmad.

There is a prediction for thunder and rain at Benoni. It has been a long rainy season, and the pitch wouldn't be easy to bat on. A side putting up a total of 280 runs batting first on this pitch would be a good one to fight with because the pitch will get slower as the game progresses.
The smaller size of Willowmoore Park, Benoni, makes it a great ground for batsmen who like to hit over the top. Fast bowlers also get a bit of assistance from the pitch early on, but it is a great surface to bat on where the ball comes onto the bat easily. Spinners find it tough bowling on this track.
There are predictions for rain during the game, which would mean that the side that chases the score could use the run rate to its advantage. The sipper winning the toss would like to use the early juice and restrict the opposition to a small total that can be chased easily.
The Netherlands come into this series riding poor form. Their batsmen, especially the top order, struggled in Zimbabwe. They will be up against a strong fast bowling attack under overcast conditions. South Africans play at home and have never long lost against the Netherlands. It will make them favorites in this game.
