Live on Skysports 1: Wed 08.30: After making slightly heavy weather of Ireland, India are just 1/33 (Betdaq) to beat the Netherlands.
With the lack of any specialist pace bowlers, the Netherlands will struggle to chip into India early on and at 20/1 (Paddy Power) are going to struggle in Delhi.
Ireland showed that the host nation can be flustered when they get in there faces but without incisive opening attacks, India should pile on the early runs.
The Netherlands conceded quick runs against England and West Indies, those 2 reaching 100 in less than 17 overs, and you can gurantee India will get the most in the first 15 overs at 1/14 (Stan James).
It’s Verinder Sehwag then who will be looking to roar back into form. After his opening day 175 in which he nearly lasted the entire 50 overs, he scored a moderate 35 and flopped to 5 against Ireland. With a prospect of scoring quickly and early, he could build a platform to kick on – follow him at 13/5 to top score (Stan James).
Another to watch could be Yuvraj Singh. He has got half centuries in both of his appearances with the bat so far and can be backed at 8/1 to top score (bet365) but at number 5, may not get a decent chance but back him to get a 50+.
As for Netherlands, Ryan ten Doeschate will look to build on his 3 wicket haul against South Africa, he is 3/1 at Coral to grab the most wickets while Cooper was the last man standing against West Indies – he is 3/1 with Totesport for top score.
The problem is, the Netherlands concede far too many runs, 977 in 3 games, and it could be the same again. Back a century scored (11/10, 888sport), India to get the most sixes (2/5, Coral) and Sehwag to get the most runs (13/5, Stan James).
