India vs Netherlands Match 45
ICC World Cup, 10 November, 2023, 2 PM IST, M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru
India vs Netherlands are set to face each other in the 45th match of the ongoing ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. This fixture is scheduled to take place at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday, November 12.
Rohit Sharma and his team have won all their matches played thus far in the tournament and ended the league group as the top-ranked side. They won all their nine games and achieved the distinction of being the first team to secure a spot in the semifinals of this prestigious event.
The game against the Netherlands will allow India to test their bench strength ahead of the semifinal. They could be tempted to rest their senior players for the game, which will be played on the day of Diwali, but head coach Rahul Dravid suggested we could see a full-strength team.
Contrastingly, the Netherlands finds themselves at the bottom of the ODI World Cup points table, having secured only two victories. In their recent encounter against defending champions England at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune, the team led by Scott Edwards faced a disheartening defeat, succumbing to a 160-run margin.
However, there is much to write about the side in the World Cup, having defeated South Africa earlier. Having made it through from the Qualifiers, the Netherlands ran a few teams close and will take that as a huge positive.

India vs Netherlands Match Preview
India enjoyed a six-day hiatus following their recent match against South Africa, and head coach Rahul Dravid suggested that this period of rest was adequate for a full-strength team to take the field.
It means that Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj will continue the fast bowling responsibilities, while Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav will lead the spin attack.
In the absence of Hardik Pandya, who has been ruled out due to an ankle injury, India have called on Prasidh Krishna, but he is unlikely to play in the remaining games, with R Ashwin and Shardul Thakur already in the ranks.
Probable Best Performers
Probable Best Batter: Rohit Sharma
Probable Best Bowler: Jasprit Bumrah
Possible Playing XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj
The Netherlands have called up Noah Croes in their squad for the injured Ryan Klein, who has been ruled out with a lower back issue. Although Croes is unlikely to secure a spot in the playing eleven for this match, there's a possibility of Vikramjit Singh returning to the team, potentially displacing Max O’Dowd at the top of the batting order.
Vikramjit has not been on fire in the tournament and did not play the last game, but Max O’Dowd has not fared any better either.
Probable Best Performers
Probable Best Batter: Scott Edwards
Probable Best Bowler: Aryan Dutt
Possible Playing XI: Wesley Barresi, Max O'Dowd, Colin Ackermann, Sybrand Engelbrecht, Scott Edwards (c&wk), Bas de Leede, Teja Nidamanuru, Logan van Beek, Roelof van der Merve, Aryan Dutt, Paul van Meekeren
Pitch Report and Expected Weather Conditions for India vs Netherlands
It's a delightful day in Bengaluru, free from any rain forecast. The temperature has subtly dropped in the city, signalling the imminent arrival of winter. The Chinnaswamy Stadium continues to adhere to its reputation as a venue where batting second is advantageous, as three out of four matches played here have been won by chasing teams. The pitch assigned for this match is situated to the left of the one utilized by New Zealand in their victorious game on Thursday, featuring a slight covering of grass that could help the seamers upfront

India vs Netherlands Dream11 Match Prediction
Wicket-keepers: KL Rahul
Batters: Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer
All-rounders: Ravindra Jadeja, Bas de Leede and Roelof van der Merwe
Bowlers: Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah
Recommended Captain: Rohit Sharma
Recommended Vice-captain: Jasprit Bumrah
We have picked only two players from the Netherlands in our XI, expecting a heavily one-sided game. If India bat first, skipper Rohit Sharma, who has been giving his team steady starts, should be the preferred captain. The track at Bengaluru will assist big scores and Rohit will be unstoppable if the bowlers err with their line or lengths.
We have selected four top-order India batters because we expect at least one of them to make merry on a small ground. As far as the bowling is concerned, we back Jasprit Bumrah to most of the damage in the powerplay, and have him as our vice-captain.
India vs Netherlands win prediction: India to win
The group stage of the 2023 Cricket World Cup has been thoroughly enjoyable, yet as we approach the knockout stage, it might take on a notably one-sided dynamic. India has showcased exceptional performance in almost all their matches. Even during challenging moments with the bat, their bowlers have risen to the occasion, making it a formidable task for the opposing teams. Our forecast envisions India being significantly dominant on Sunday, and we anticipate them to secure a big win.
