Netherlands start with spin against Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill. Rohit takes on Aryan Dutta for two boundaries in the first over itself.
Netherlands plan to go with spin backfires and India off to a great start in Bengalore. They cross 50 in just 6 overs with Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill launching the balls over the boundaries.

India for the third time scored more than 90 runs in the first powerplay of the inning. They are the now the only team to do it thrice in the tournament. Both Gill and Rohit looking solid and there is almost a boundary in every over. Surely India targeting a target over 400!
Shubman Gill scores his 12th ODI fifty and third of this ICC World Cup 2023. He does it in just 30 deliveries.
But, he had to go for 51 as Van Meekeren gets him out to a bouncer. Gill tried to hook the ball for a six, but only managed to get caught at the fine leg by Nidamanuru. A good catch by Nidamanuru on the boundary line.
The Indian team captain's dream run in the ICC World Cup 2023 2023 continues. This is his third fifty of the tournament and this time he takes on 44 balls to get to the milestone.
A good fifteen-tweenty minutes for Netherlands here. They have slowed down the run scoring but a bit and Bas de Leede gets Rohit Sharma in that period. Rohit tried to pull a delivery that was not there to be pulled. He gets a top edge and Wesley Barresi does the rest at long on!
Bas de Leede is now the highest wicket-taker for Netherlands in World Cup history. He goes past his after Tim de Leede.
India 130/2 after 18 overs!
After a 91 runs first powerplay, Netherlands pull things back with a 49/2 second powerplay. Not only they were able to put a break to the run flow, they picked up two important wickets of Shubman Gill (51), and Rohit Sharma (61).
After a shaky start, Virat Kohli is looking at his best. Boundaries followed by quick singles and he completes his 71st ODI fifty in just 53 balls. India
This is Kohli's 7th fifty of this World Cup.
However, it is Van der Merwe who gets him out clean bowled. Kohli looking for a shot on the backfoot but it was a bit flatter from the left-arm spinner. Kohli misses the ball completely and it's thrid down for India.
Shreyas Iyer looks in complete control as he keeps on manuvering the ball and puts it to the boundary whenever he gets a chance. Iyer at number four is looking solid as ever.
A brilliant cover drive and Iyer completes his 18th ODI fifty. He took only 48 balls to get to the milestone. This is the first time four top order players have scored a fifty in an ICC World Cup match.
India crossed 250 in just 36th over. Iyer and KL Rahul taking the scoreboards ticking.
Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul put up another 100+ runs partnership for India. India cross 300 in the 42 over. How many can they put with 8 more overs to go?
This is only the thrid time in ODI cricket history that all five batters of a team have scored fifty in an inning.
A solid inning from the Mumbaikar. Iyer now has established himself at number four in a batting lineup full of stars. That has been a great world cup so far for Shreyas. Fourth ODI ton for Iyer.
150 runs partnership from Iyer-Rahul now.

History for KL Rahul. He now has scored the fastest World Cup century by an Indian in just 62 balls. He then perished to a bouncer by Bas de Leede. Rahul went for 102 from 64 balls.
Fifties from Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill then hundreds from KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer take India to their second highest total in their World Cup history. They put up 410/4 in the first inning in their last group game of the ICC World Cup 2023.
Mohammed Siraj strikes early for India as Wesley Barresi edges the ball to KL Rahul who dives in front to take a low catch.
Colin Ackermann is not ready to give it without a fight. Siraj looked for some early swing; is not getting anything off the pitch. Ackermann took the advantage and threw his bat through the line to hit three boundaries in single over.
This is the fastest fifty by a team against India in ICC World Cup 2023.
Colin Ackermann (35 off 32) was looking solid against the pacers. But, he has struggled against Kuldeep and the wizard has his name. Ackermann tried a sweep but missed the ball totally.
Although he had asked for DRS to save him, but the ball was crushing into the middle of middle stump. Netherlands 66/2.
Ravindra Jadeja gets Max O'Dowd in his first ball. A jaffer again from Jadeja. He cleans up O'Dowd after he was dropped by Siraj in the previous over.
Netherlands batters have been able to find any answer to questions asked by Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja. Netherlands 92/3 after 22 overs.
Yes, he has got the wicket. Virat Kohli has taken a wicket after nine long years. He gets the Netherlands captain out, caught down the leg side. KL Rahul with a great catch down the led side.

This is some serious bowling from Jasprit Bumrah. He gets Bas de Leede clean bowled with a perfect yorker after some serious bouncers.
Netherlands lacking intent with Sybrand Engelbrecht closing in on a well made fifty. They are playing within themselves and India looking to get wickets as quickly as possible.
Siraj finally gets the wicket of Sybrand Engelbrecht who was looking good in his defense. Siraj comes around the wicket and the plan works for the Indian pacer. Netherlands 173/6.
Nidamanuru shwoing his skills with the bat down the order. He has been the best Netherlands with some fearless strokeplay. He is unbeaten on 35 from 26 and already has hit 4 sixes in the innning.
Finally, Kuldeep Yadav gets a well-deserving wicket. Logan van Beek tried to slog-sweep Yadav but completely missed it. Kuldeep gets his second of the day.
