The 9th ODI of the Warm-up Match is scheduled to take place between India and Netherlands at Greenfield Stadium, Trivandrum on Tuesday. Both teams have met twice in the past in the ODI format and team India has come out as the winners in both fixtures.
After a series win over Australia, India’s confidence in the ODI World Cup will be all-time high. They would like to continue the momentum in the warm-up ODIs as well.
The Netherlands will have a different experience and it will be a real test of their team while facing India. The visitors will be keeping in mind that they are facing one of the best ODI teams in the world. The top bookmakers in India have odds with them for the World Cup.
He has scored 341 runs in the last 5 ODIs at an average of 68.2 and is expected to continue a good form.
The betting tip is...
Shubman Gill will score a half-century.
Team India has been in dominating form against the Australian side and that too without the presence of senior players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. It clearly shows that the next generation of players like Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Mohammed Siraj, and Shreyas Iyer are well-prepared for the ODI World Cup.
Skipper Rohit Sharma has also regained his lost form as he scored 81 off 57 balls in the previous fixture and will be expected to give a good start to the team against Netherlands. Shubman Gill will be another player who will be in the spotlight. He has scored 2 centuries and a half-century in the last 5 ODIs he has been part of.
There are still doubts about the presence of Axar Patel for the Warm-up matches.
Predicted Lineup: Rohit Sharma (c), Hardik Pandya (vc), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami
The Netherlands has made it to the big league after a decade of absence. They were part of the ODI World Cup in 2011 and now they are back again at the Indian sub-continent. The Netherlands are currently ranked 14th in the ICC Men's ODI rankings.
They are a young and talented team, with a number of exciting players to watch, including Max O'Dowd, Bas de Leede, and Aryan Dutt. Even though the team is young, the players carry the capability to stun a strong team at any point in time.
Aryan Dutt will be a key player for the Netherlands squad.
Predicted Lineup: Vikramjit Singh, Max O’Dowd, Wesley Berresi, Bas de Leede, Noah Croes, Scott Edwards (wk) (c), Saqib Zulfiqar, Logan van Beek, Ryan Klein, Aryan Dutt, Clayton Floyd
Team India has the winning momentum going. The biggest question for them right now is whether will Axar Patel make it to the ODI World Cup or not. The Netherlands, on the other hand, is coming to play an ODI after their final game in the ICC qualifiers.
They are not well-aware of the playing conditions and the team carries less experience as compared to the opponents. We predict a win for team India in the warm-up match.
