IND vs NL Match Prediction - Oct 27, 2022

India has just brought the T20 World Cup 2022 alive with one of the most memorable performances you will ever see. Pakistan was brilliant but Virat Kohli just refused to accept defeat. Now, the attention shifts to a match that is a bit less hyped although to take the Netherlands lightly will be a mistake. 

After making their way into the Super-12, the Netherlands will hope to pull off one or two upsets. At the very least, it would like to give some of the bigger teams a scare. All the best cricket betting sites have India as the favorite and frankly, it would be odd if they did not! There are still other markets to find value in, though. 

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for India vs Netherlands T20 World Cup 2022. The match will be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney on the 27th of October 2022. 

IND vs NL Team Previews


India picked a team that was more or less on the expected lines for the previous match and while there were some underperforming areas, we don't think India will change its lineup for this match. KL Rahul has an excellent record against teams that are considered to be a bit weaker. He and Rohit Sharma will need to put their tentative approach behind them and play as they have done in the previous year. 

India's batting is a lot stronger than the Netherlands, and we think that goes without saying. There is a lot more depth, class, hitting power, and experience. The Indian team just needs to avoid doing anything silly or excessively extravagant. 

India's bowling was a big concern coming into this tournament. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep Singh showed that they are going to challenge the best with their swing in the powerplay. After that, Hardik Pandya with his bounce, and Mohammad Shami with his pace can be a handful as well. 

Ashwin and Axar were the two spinners picked in the previous match. This is where India can experiment a bit if they want. Deep Hooda can bowl a couple of overs and is a much better batter than Axar or Yuzvendra Chahal can come into the team as well. 

India Playing 11

Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, V Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh.


The Netherlands has done decently well in the T20 World Cup so far. They have managed to beat the UAE and Namibia in the first round to qualify for the Super-12. Since then, though, they lost by 16 runs to Sri Lanka and by 9 runs to Bangladesh. 

Once again, these are creditable performances but it appears as if the Netherlands has hit the ceiling of its best performances. As a developing cricketing nation, the Netherlands has to make do with a small talent pool. That is not to say that they do not have any good players but the fact is that they are nowhere close to the bigger teams in world cricket. 

Max'O Dowd, Colin Ackerman, and maybe Bas de Leede are the players that are promising. Similarly, Fred Klaassen has a lot of county experience to help him but overall, Netherlands will be happy to just land a couple of telling blows on India.

IND vs NL Toss Prediction

The toss has been of much lesser significance in Australia (thankfully) and does not seem to affect the outcome much. That being said, a bit of rain around could mean that both teams look to field first if given the chance.

Pitch and Conditions

The weather forecast for Sydney for match day is excellent. There was some rain in Sydney but it seems to have cleared for the time being. We should have an uninterrupted match to enjoy. The pitch in Sydney is flat and the ground can be very high-scoring. New Zealand took down Australia and scored 200 at Sydney in the first match. 

We think something around 170 should be par for the venue. 

IND vs NL Betting Tips

We are going to back India to win. There is very little value to be had in this but there is no way to even dream about betting on the Netherlands at this moment. What you can do is to look for opportunities throughout the match where the odds improve a bit, otherwise, you really have to look at other markets to find some decent returns. 

Bet on India to win.

    Any Player to Hit a Fifty

    Yes (1.49)


The Netherlands bowling lineup is not very good and it could be perfect fodder for the Indian batters to find their groove. players like KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, and SKY will certainly want to maximize this opportunity. We think there is every likelihood that at least one of them will pass fifty.
