IND vs NL Match Preview

As was expected at the start of this tournament, India’s batting has been one of its strong points. The veterans Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have led the attack, while Shubhman Gill, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, and Suryakumar Yadav have played an excellent supporting role to lead India to match-winning totals.

But perhaps the most heartening feature of the hosts’ journey so far has been the performance of its bowlers. Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, and Mohammed Shami have emerged as one of the most lethal pace attacks of the tournament, while Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja have exploited even quickest of the surfaces to keep a tab on the opposition batting.

Wesley Barresi, who replaced Vikramjit Singh at the top of the order in the last match, looked in decent touch and will look to score some quick runs during the PowerPlay. However, Max O’Dowd has had a terrible tournament so far. Scott Edwards and Sybrand Engelbrecht have scored 2 half-centuries each and will be the key players for the Netherlands in this contest.

The Netherlands will rely on the all-rounders to deliver the goods. Logan van Beek, Bas De Leede, and Colin Ackermann are all quality players who can quickly change the course of the match. Paul van Meekeren and Aryan Dutt have bowled well throughout this tournament and will look to keep the Indian batsmen under pressure. 

Weather Report

There is no forecast of rain on Sunday but there might be some clouds dotting the sky. The maximum temperature is likely to be around 27 degrees. 

Pitch Report

The pitch at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium is generally good to bat on. The surface is flat and even and provides a good amount of pace and bounce. It has rained in Bengaluru over the past week so there should be some amount of moisture, allowing the ball to skid. The team batting first will look to cross the 300-run mark to put the opposition under pressure.

Notable stats

Virat Kohli: On the Cusp of History

With a century in the last match, Virat Kohli has climbed to the 3rd place in all-time highest run-scorers in World Cup history. He has scored 1573 runs in 34 innings at an average of 58.25.
