Netherlands elected to bat against India

New Delhi: Netherlands captain Peter Borren won the toss and elected to bat in a Group B World Cup match against India at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium on Wednesday.

India made one change from the side that beat Ireland by five wickets, bringing in left-arm seamer Ashish Nehra for Munaf Patel.

The Dutch included Bradley Kruger and Eric Szwarczynski in place of Bernard Loots and Berend Westdijk.

A victory for India in this day-night game will virtually assure them a place in the quarterfinals.

The Netherlands are yet to win a match in the tournament.

India: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (C), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Yusuf Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Piyush Chawla, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra.

Netherlands: Peter Borren (C), Wesley Barresi, Mudassar Bukhari, Tom Cooper, Tom de Grooth, Alexei Kervezee, Bradley Kruger, Pieter Seelaar, Ryan ten Doeschate, Eric Szwarczynski, Bas Zuiderent.(AFP)
