India and the Netherlands are set to face each other in the final group stage clash of the 2023 Men’s ODI World Cup on November 12 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.
This game holds little significance in terms of qualification for either team, but both the Netherlands and India will undoubtedly take the match seriously.
Scott Edwards’ side has displayed great determination against all their opponents so far, and despite India being their toughest challenge, they are expected to put up a strong fight. A victory against India could secure the Dutch qualification for the 2025 Champions Trophy, and that will be their primary aim in this match.
On the other hand, India will look to ensure all their players are in top condition ahead of the semi-finals against New Zealand on November 15. This match presents an opportunity for batters and bowlers to regain or maintain their form and momentum.
Seamer Prasidh Krishna is likely to make his World Cup debut for India after being announced as Hardik Pandya’s replacement. With the possibility of resting some frontline pace bowlers, Prasidh could have the chance to shine and be a valuable differential pick.
Wesley Barresi, the 39-year-old opener for the Netherlands, has provided stability at the top of the order and will look to convert his starts into big scores in what could be his final World Cup match.
Colin Ackermann, the spin-bowling all-rounder, has had a mixed campaign for the Netherlands in the World Cup. With the ability to contribute with both bat and ball, he could be an exciting differential pick for Dream11.
Overall, the clash between India and the Netherlands promises to be an intriguing one, with both teams eager to end their group stage campaign on a high note.
