Match Preview – India vs Netherlands, ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022/23, Match 23, Group 2
Thursday will be the first instance of India and the Netherlands competing in an international T20. While India will enter as the clear favourite, it will also be the first to point out the danger that Scott Edwards‘team poses. The Netherlands are the only Associates in the Super 12. They have worked hard to earn their place and now their players want to enjoy playing alongside the greats, a long held dream. India, Pakistan and South Africa are in their group, and the Dutch want to make sure they put in the effort to create an upset.
Exposure – that has been the catchphrase associated coaches and players have endured outside the gates of the ICC and the bigger countries. Playing in better teams will make them better has been the joke. And the Netherlands has shown it this season: in 2022 they have played the ODI series against England, New Zealand, Pakistan, the West Indies and Afghanistan along with the T20I twins against New Zealand, as well as the T20 World Cup Qualifier in Zimbabwe before coming to Australia.
Equipped with that experience, the Netherlands believed they could beat Bangladesh in their first Super 12 match on Monday and almost achieved that goal, if it weren’t for a couple of unnecessary depletions, the reason behind the eventual nine-run loss. The Netherlands knows that India is on a completely different level and on an almighty level after a dramatic victory against Pakistan. While their bowlers have executed the plans in every match, Holland batting has been a virtual one-man spectacle called Max O’Dowd. He needs the support of Vikramjit Singh, Colin Ackermann, Tom Cooper and Edwards.
The Netherlands captain was able to tell his players, ‘We have nothing to lose, so let’s enjoy ourselves.’ Such an attitude, said Paul van Meerkeren, strike taker for the Netherlands, has the potential to help players raise the bar of performance. And given their history of impacting the big teams in the T20 World Cups – England in 2009 Y 2014 – India will want to be on high alert.

as captain rohit sharma It has been loud, clear and brave. He is one of the best tacticians in the game and is also more than capable of thinking on the fly. But Rohit, the batsman, has been flying low lately: in his last five T20IRohit has scored just 64 runs, including two ducks, with a strike rate of 103. This drop in form contrasts with the full of 46 punches he hit against Australia in the rain-shortened match in Nagpur that earned him the Man of the Match award. Their last fifty it came in a losing effort, seven games ago, against Sri Lanka, in the Asian Cup. Rohit knows he needs to dictate with the bat and show consistency.
Multiple World Cup winner ricky ponting likes to keep an eye on young talent and thinks Holland is off-roader Bas de Leede he has something special about him. Ponting feels de Leede has the tools to grow, and his local BBL team, the Hobart Hurricanes, might be thinking of having him on his roster. Other T20 franchise scouts have also tracked down de Leede, who was recently selected by MI Emirates for the inaugural season of the T20 International League, which will kick off in the United Arab Emirates from January 2023. De Leede, who is 22 years, he was also Man of the Match in The Netherlands’ two victories in the first round of this World Cup and his second greatest career creator in the World Qualifiers that preceded it.
With just one left-hander in the top eight from the Netherlands, India might be tempted to bring in Yuzvendra Chahal, but their bowling coach Paras Mhambrey he pointed on Wednesday that they prefer the balance that R Ashwin brings to their hitting and can continue to play with him.

Indian (possible): 1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 KL Rahul, 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Suryakumar Yadav, 5 Hardik Pandya, 6 Dinesh Karthik (week), 7 Axar Patel, 8 Mohammed Shami, 9 R Ashwin/Yuzvendra Chahal, 10 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 11 Deep Arsh Singh

The Netherlands are unlikely to play as well, but they remain concerned about Roelof van der Merwe being injured. Edwards said a final decision would be made based on how the left arm spinner holds up after Wednesday’s practice.

Netherlands (possible): 1 Max O’Dowd, 2 Vikramjit Singh. 3 Bas de Leede, 4 Colin Ackermann, 5 Tom Cooper, 6 Scott Edwards (ch. and week), 7 Tim Pringle, 8 Timm van der Gugten, 9 Fred Klaassen 10 Paul van Meekeren, 11 Shariz Ahmed/Roelof van der Merwe

New Zealand shot 200 in the tournament opener at the SCG on Saturday. So it’s only fair to expect racing to flow once again. There was some threat of rain, but it seems pretty clear on the eve of the match.

“The discussion we always had was that every game in a tournament like this is important. Yes, the first game [was against Pakistan and] we knew the hype around it. We knew it was always going to be a very intense and big game, but having those games done and dusted off in the first phase is good. If this game had been maybe the third or fourth game, sometimes it would have that effect on the following games, but to have this game out of our group is good.”

“Yeah, it’s huge. You always dream of playing World Cups, and SCG is one of the most famous courses in the world. And then he adds that you’re playing against possibly one of the best teams in the world, yeah, it’s pretty surreal. The guys They’re looking forward to it.”
