PITCH REPORT – Sanjay Manjrekar is pitchside. He says that the weather is good with a high of 28 degrees Celsius but the humidity is a bit high. mentions that it is the center pitch with the sides boundaries being fairly short at 64 meters on either side and straight it is 73 meters. Aaron Finch joins him and says that spinners can have an impact on this surface and mentions Mitchell Santner who was prepared to toss the ball up. He says that the pitch looks like a beauty and the sheen on the wicket means you will get a monster score. He also mentions that batters can take a bit of time and go beserk later on.
Netherlands, on the other hand, have won only two matches but they have given a good account of themselves throughout this competition. However, they still have a lot to play for in this game as a win here would guarantee them a place in the Champions Trophy 2025. Their batting has really struggle as the tournament has progressed. Their openers have failed to get them the good starts while they are heavily dependent on their captain Scott Edwards in the batting department. The positive for them is Sybrand Engelbrecht who has been excellent and the inclusion of Wesley Barresi into the team was also a right decision as he provides a lot of experience. Their bowling though have been really good with Paul van Meekeren, Bas de Leede and Logan van Beek handling the pace department and picking up a lot of wickets in this World Cup while Aryan Dutt and Roelof van der Merwe make up a great spin duo for them who has enjoyed bowling on Indian conditions but this will be their toughest test and the Dutch will hope to do something special. Will Netherlands do the unthinkable? Or will India make it nine in a row? We will find out soon. Toss and team news in a bit.
India have blown away teams in this World Cup and have the chance to finish the league stages undefeated. They have won eight out of eight and every department has contributed equally to their success. Their skipper Rohit Sharma has been selfless giving them quick starts while Virat Kohli is enjoying one of his best World Cups. Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, and KL Rahul have also played some good knocks as well. Mohammed Shami has teared apart oppositions with some exceptional bowling while Jasprit Bumrah has been brilliant at every phase of the game. Ravindra Jadeja picked up fifer in the last game while Kuldeep Yadav has slowed down but that is only because the pacers almost finish the job before he could come into bowl. Mohammed Siraj also has found his rhythm back and they are looking like a lethal side. They can rotate the side a bit but will also want to enter the semis with a big win.

The dominant Men in Blue take on the Netherlands who has punched above their weight in this tournament and entertained all of us.
