IND vs NED Practice LIVE: Team India optional practice session is currently underway. Rohit Sharma & Co will dead-rubber final league stage clash of the World Cup 2023 against the Netherlands at Bengaluru’s M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday, November 12. Additionally, the team will conduct their pre-match media conference at 1:45 PM. Holding a perfect record with eight wins from eight games, India is set to face the Dutch with full strength.
Meanwhile, the Netherlands team is also scheduled to have a practice session at the same venue starting at 6 PM. Their pre-match media conference is slated for 5:45 PM.
As they gear up for the semi-finals, the Men in Blue aim to maintain their impressive form.

Notably, wicket-keeper-batsman Ishan Kishan chose to sit out of the practice session.
IND vs NED Clash: Rohit Sharma & Co aims semis with dominance
Looking at it from the Indian perspective, they have exhibited utter dominance, excelling in both batting and bowling departments. Most of their wins have been lopsided, with the Men in Blue completely overpowering their opponents right from the start.
Pakistan and New Zealand showcased strong performances initially in the ongoing World Cup until they faced India and subsequently endured four consecutive losses. The Indian bowling attack humiliated Sri Lanka by dismissing them for a mere 55 runs, while the formidable South African team found themselves up against the hosts.
India is likely to maintain the same lineup when facing the Netherlands on Sunday. However, there’s a possibility that star pacer Jasprit Bumrah might be rested in preparation for crucial knockout matches. In such case, the pace department could be spearheaded by Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami. Meanwhile, Shardul Thakur will serve as the third seamer.
India’s probable playing XI vs Netherlands: Shubman Gill, Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, and Mohammed Siraj. paraphrase
