Before India plays the first semi final in Mumbai, they will face the Netherlands in their last league match of this ODI World Cup 2023. The men in the blue side can make some changes for this dead rubber match.
They can rest Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Siraj who have played all the games so far.
The hosts of the ODI World Cup 2023, India, can replace the above-mentioned star players with Prasidh Krishna, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishan Kishan and Shardul Thakur.
Three of these players have not got enough chances in the tournament and Prasidh who came in as a replacement of Hardik Pandya needs to get a game in this competition.
On the other hand, The Netherlands will look to cause another upset in this tournament. The Dutch stunned The Proteas in their league match at Dharamshala.
The Dutch will want to bow out from this one-day international tournament with a fight in their last encounter of this year’s ODI World Cup 2023.

India has been a cricketing giant when they are compared to the Netherlands. The overall record and the ODI World Cup record of the men in blue side has been excellent against The Dutch.
India has played two and won both the matches in the fifty overs World Cup tournament.
It was in 2003 when India played against the Netherlands for the first time. That team under Sourav Ganguly also made a record when they defended the lowest score in the fifty-overs tournament.
India could muster only 203 runs in their allotted 50 overs quota. Sachin Tendulkar was the top scorer in that game.
India won this game because of their bowlers. They defended that smallish score well as The Dutch was bundled out for just 136 runs and India won the match by 65 runs.
In the 2011 ODI World Cup, which was the last encounter against the Dutch, India won that match quite comprehensively.
India won that game by 5 wickets in Delhi. Yuvraj Singh scored unbeaten 51 runs and also picked up 2 wickets.
