India and Netherlands – Journey so far
India has been the dominant, unbeatable force so far. They won every single match in front of their home crowd, and the crowd has been crazy for them. It is a lovely sight whenever they play. Maybe that makes it even more critical for India to win this match. And it seems like they will get the 9-0 they are aiming for
The Netherlands has been pretty great so far. At a certain point, it seemed like they would win at least four matches in this tournament. It was after twelve years they got a chance. And they have shown the world how much they are good at this game. They beat the likes of England and South Africa. This should tell you a lot about the quality of their cricket.
Bengaluru has been synonymous with runs at this point. You will always see a high-scoring match. If India gets to bat first, you will surely see a score of more than 350. The Pacers will get a bit of help. But that is it; there is no mercy for the bowlers on this pitch.
Bas de Leede will be the key with the new ball for the Dutch team. India might be in trouble if they can pick up some quick wickets. Also, his batting will be troubling for the Indian bowlers who might be making their first appearance. Yes, we are talking about India experimenting with Prasidh Krishna.
For India, the big man Rohit Sharma will be the key batsman. However, Virat Kohli will look forward to breaking Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the most Hundreds in ODIs.
India is going to win this match. I am going to leave it at that.
India won the toss and chose to bat first. It’s Bengaluru, and it is India batting first. 400 on the cards?

First Innings – India
|INDIA 410-4 (50 overs)|
|Shreyas Iyer 128 (94)||Bas de Leede 2-82|
|Shreyas Iyer 102 (64)||Roelof van der Merwe 1-53|
|Rohit Sharma 61 (54)||Paul van Meekeren 1-90|
|TARGET||411 in 50 overs|
- India won the toss and chose to add to the Dutch team’s humiliation. Rohit and Gill began their journey on fast lanes. Dutt was sent to the dry cleaners.
- Then they went after everyone one by one. Kohli began slowly but finished with a fifty. Iyer’s hot streak continued as he and Rahul combined nearly out-bat the Netherlands in this game.
- They were simply unstoppable.
- Slower balls were attempted, but nothing worked. Iyer and Rahul scored hundreds while also tearing into the bowling assault of the poor Dutch squad.
- The ball had a slight grip, but the Indian hitters continued their purple streak. 411 is a far-fetched request for the Dutch squad.
Second Innings – Netherlands
|NETHERLANDS 250-10 (47.5 overs)|
|Teja Nidamanuru 54 (39)||Jasprit Bumrah 2-33|
|Sybrand Engelbrecht 45 (80)||Kuldeep Yadav 2-41|
|Colin Ackermann 35 (32)||Mohammed Siraj 2-29|
|RESULT||India won by 160 runs|
- Barresi was eliminated early, but Max O’Dowd and Ackermann allied. Kuldeep Yadav was required to break things up, and then Jadeja hit from the other end.
- The game then devolved into tedious middle overs territory, and skipper Rohit Sharma chose to delight the audience with his wrong-footed inswinging menace.
- Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill, and SKY all took chances, and Kohli got a wicket to throw the fans into a frenzy.
- Then Siraj, Shami, Bumrah, and Kuldeep returned to add to their wicket total.
- Finally, as frosting on the cake, skipper Rohit Sharma took the ball personally, and of course, he had to get Teja Nidamanuru out after a brave fifty.
Man of the Match
Shreyas Iyer got the MOTM for his quickfire century against the Dutch bowlers. What a knock that was. Total domination from the middle-order batsman.
