India vs Netherlands – After a winning start against archrivals Pakistan, India is poised to make a significant impact in this World Cup. In this match, Rohit Sharma will be hoping for some batting gains at the top. India were 4 for 31 in pursuit of 160 at the MCG, with both openers and Suryakumar Yadav out.
The Netherlands’ squad also includes some talented new-ball bowlers. This will be an excellent opportunity for India’s top order to stage a comeback following their recent collapse. KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma will be out to find their rhythm before India takes on the Proteas in Sydney.
Given how good the Dutch bowlers have been in recent matches, this will not be an easy outing for India. The Netherlands’ bowling attack will be led by Logan van Beek, van Meekeren, and Bas de Leede. However, facing the Indian bowling attack will be the Netherlands’ most difficult challenge of the T20 World Cup.
The Super 12 Group 2, 23rd Match between India vs Netherlands will take place on October 27th, 2022 at Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney.
Match Details to Note
Match: India vs Netherlands, 23rd Match, Super 12 Group 2, ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2022
Date: October 27, 2022 (Thursday)
Time: 12:30 PM IST
Venue: Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney
Virat Kohli has returned to his best form. In T20 World Cups, he has been consistent against Pakistan. However, the kind of innings he played in a run chase in which India needed 28 of the last 8 balls was typical of Virat Kohli in 2018, when the former India captain was at his best.
At the top of the order, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul need to find their rhythm. Both appeared to struggle against Pakistan’s quicks. In the Netherlands, there is no shortage of quick bowling options.
It will also provide an excellent opportunity for all of the top-order batters to fine-tune their techniques and approach. Rishabh Pant could return to the starting lineup for this match.
He has been an important batsman for India in recent years, helping the team to many victories. His style of play makes the opposition unsure of what fielding and bowling strategy to employ against the left-handed batsman.
Dinesh Karthik is pushed to the bottom of the order, with only a few balls left for himself. Shami has demonstrated why he is so important to India’s chances of victory in the bowling department. When the captain is looking for a breakthrough, he is the bowler to turn to.
Arshdeep Singh is the next rising star to watch in the Indian bowling ranks. In contrast, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, like Kohli, appears to have found his rhythm and will be crucial in the powerplay overs.
KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma(c), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Axar Patel, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik(w), Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal, Rishabh Pant, Deepak Hooda, Harshal Patel
Players to watch out for:
The number three batter scored his 36th T20I century on Sunday. He hit four sixes in the inning and now has a 51.97 average in this format.
The all-rounder maintains his high level of performance in 2022. He scored 40 runs off 37 balls against Pakistan after taking 3-30 with the ball.
The young left-arm pace bowler dismissed both of Pakistan’s openers, Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam, and contributed significantly to India’s victory.
Possible Playing XI:
Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wk), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh
The Netherlands got off to a great start against Bangladesh after winning the toss and opting to bowl first. They were on top of the game after reducing the opposition to 76-5 in 11 overs. Even if Bangladesh finished with 144 runs, it was not a large total for the Netherlands to chase.
Colin Ackerman finished as the top run scorer with 62 off 48 balls, but he had no partner with whom to build partnerships as wickets fell frequently from the other end. Other key players in the top and middle order who are expected to step up and deliver include Max ODowd, Bas de Leede, and Tom Cooper.
For this match, the Netherlands must make a few changes and bring back some of their best players. The squad includes Roelof van der Merwe and Timm van der Gugten. Shariz Ahmed and Tim Pringle can be replaced by these two bowling all-rounders.
Captain Scott Edwards is out of form, so van der Merwe will be a welcome addition to the batting lineup.
The Netherlands squad contains a large number of all-rounders, including Fred Klaassen, a batting all-rounder who batted at number 10 in the previous game. Edwards will need all of his batters and all-rounders to contribute to the innings against a strong bowling attack.
Vikramjit Singh, Max ODowd, Bas de Leede, Colin Ackermann, Tom Cooper, Scott Edwards(w/c), Tim Pringle, Logan van Beek, Shariz Ahmad, Fred Klaassen, Paul van Meekeren, Roelof van der Merwe, Timm van der Gugten, Stephan Myburgh, Teja Nidamanuru, Brandon Glover
Players to watch out for:
The right-handed opener is just 16 runs away from reaching 1500 T20I runs for Ireland. His best T20I mark is 133 not out.
Bas de Leede
The batting all-rounder was out on his first ball on Monday, leaving the Netherlands trailing 0-2 after 0.2 overs. In this format, he has a best score of 91 not out and is the joint leading wicket taker in the T20 World Cup 2022.
Paul van Meekeren
Against Bangladesh, the spinner took the wickets of opener Soumya Sarkar and Yasir Ali. He also scored 24 runs off 14 balls as the number 11 batter.
Possible Playing XI:
Max ODowd, Vikramjit Singh, Bas de Leede, Colin Ackermann, Tom Cooper, Scott Edwards (c & wk), Timm van der Gugten, Logan van Beek, Roelof van der Merwe, Fred Klaassen, Paul van Meekeren

India vs Netherlands Toss Prediction
According to the statistics, teams batting first or second have no clear advantage at this venue. Batting first teams have won six of the eleven T20Is and 22 of the 49 BBL matches at this venue. However, given India’s preferences, it is safe to assume that if India wins the toss, they will bowl first.
