IND vs NED Live Score: Here’s what Scott Edwards said at the toss
We would have batted as well. Looks like a pretty good wicket, but good ground for chasing. We have been pretty good overall, there’s games we’ve been blown out. We’ve had two wins. Looking to give a good performance today, give ourselves a chance. This is going to be the biggest crowd we’ve had for the tournament, looking forward to the atmosphere that’s going to be here. India have been flawless, we have to be at our best.
IND vs NED Live Score: Here’s what Rohit Sharma said at the toss
We are gonna have a bat. No particular reason. Whether we have batted first or bowled first, we have done extremely well. Another opportunity to play well today and tick all the boxes. Extremely happy with how we have played in this tournament. Hats off to the guys who have stood up at different times and taken the responsibility. Same team.

India skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to bat against Netherlands in their ODI World Cup 2023 match on Sunday in Bengaluru.
IND vs NED Live Score: Pitch report
“Side boundaries – 64 metres on both sides, straight boundary – 73 metres. Today’s pitch looks an absolute beauty. It’s absolutely rock hard. There’s a little bit of surface cracking but there’s that little sheen to the wicket. As a batter, you see that and you start licking your lips. We have seen some monster scores here. You can afford to take a little bit of time at the start of your innings.”
IND vs NED Live Score: Head to head
India and Netherlands have competed against each other on two occasions in ODIs, with the former winning each time out. Interestingly, both matches were a part of the ICC Cricket World Cup. The first match-up took place in 2003 whereas the second encounter was a part of the 2011 edition.
IND vs NED Live Score: Weather report
All eyes will be on the weather of Bengaluru when India will take on Netherlands in their last league stage match. The temperature at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru is predicted to be 27 degrees Celsius and 57 per cent humidity.
IND vs NED Live Score: Pace or Spin? WHo will have an upper hand?
Pace is the way to go at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru as the fast bowlers have registered the majority of the wickets so far. However, spinners can chip in with crucial breakthroughs as the game progresses. Australia’s leg-break bowler Adam Zampa managed to bag a four-wicket haul in the second innings against Pakistan at the same venue earlier in the competition.
IND vs NED Live Score: India’s fiery bowling
Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj have made run-making a hazardous option for opposition batters, but a bit more consistency in line and length from Siraj could be welcomed by the management. But overall, this ultra-efficient five-man unit will be looking for one final rehearsal ahead of the last four match, potentially against New Zealand at Mumbai.
IND vs NED Live Score: India’s strong opening pair
Openers Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill have stitched together three fifty-plus stands in the tournament, but in five other matches they were separated quickly. But in those three games, they went off the blocks quite quickly, putting the opposition through the wringer. They have made 88 runs in 12.4 overs against Bangladesh, 71 in 11.1 overs against New Zealand and 62 in 5.5 overs against South Africa. But on other times, their alliance was snapped at 5, 32, 23, 26 and 4. The thinktank would like them to expand the footprint of those three matches, and Netherlands give them a perfect platform to do that.
IND vs NED Live Score: Will Shardul Thakur get a chance?
As Team India has already qualified for the semi-finals of the ODI World Cup 2023, there are chances that the hosts might tinker with their Playing XI against Netherlands. It is highly likely that all-rounder Shardul Thakur might get included in the team.
IND vs NED Live Score: All eyes on Virat Kohli
Star India batter Virat Kohli stunned everyone with his 49th ODI ton in the previous match against South Africa. He is now on the cusp of breaking the record of legendary Sachin Tendulkar with his 50th ODI ton. Playing in Bengaluru, he will definitely look for a big show.
IND vs NED Live Score: Big day for India
After winning eight matches on the trot, Team India is now eyeing their ninth and final win in the league stage of the ODI World Cup 2023. It will be an interesting game as the hosts will look to enter the knockout stage with an unbeatable run.
