In this article we will be analyzing India vs Netherlands Warm-Up Match 9 for the ODI World Cup 2023. India’s last warm-up game against England was called off due to rain. In the series before that, the Men in Blue defeated Australia 2-1 in the three-match series, but there are still a lot of areas that the team needs to improve at the moment. The debate between Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan is still strong, and is uncertain about who will play in the middle order. Thus, the match against the Netherlands on October 3 holds a lot of value. The balance in the bowling unit is another such area that the team management needs to figure out ahead of their first match in the ODI World Cup against Australia on October 8.
The Netherlands, on the other hand, are in poor form at the form. They recently lost to Karnataka and were on the verge against Australia, but rain played spoilsport. Bas de Leede is one such player who has impressed the most in recent times, and he will aim to improve. Among bowlers, veteran Roelof van der Merwe and Logan van Beek have been impressive.

Rain has played a spoilsport in Kochi, and the same can repeat once again. The surface can prove to be a bit damp. Spinners are likely to get some assistance in that case. However, anything over 280 will be a good total.

Shubman Gill (India):
Youngster Shubman Gill is in remarkable form at the moment. He is hitting centuries for fun, and against a relatively weak bowling attack of Netherlands, the opener will aim to wreak havoc. He has represented India in 35 ODIs so far, hitting 1917 runs in the process.
Probable Best Bowler:
Kuldeep Yadav (India):
Spin wizard Kuldeep Yadav was adjudged Player of the Tournament in the recently concluded Asia Cup. He has been exceptional in ODI cricket in recent times and can prove to be deadly once again.
