Despite experiencing a narrow defeat against Zimbabwe in their previous game, their overall form has been commendable. They will aim to maintain their momentum and build on their impressive performances in the upcoming match.
Netherlands, on the other hand, have not been consistent in the tournament, but come into this game on the back of a win against Nepal.

West Indies vs Netherlands Match Prediction
West Indies, a much more experienced unit, are the favourites to win this game. They have a few very good batsmen in their ranks along with exceptional all-rounders, most of whom have played plenty of international as well as franchise cricket matches. Historically too, the Netherlands have never been able to defeat West Indies in the five ODI matches the two teams have played.
