Right then, India have posted a mammoth total on the board, and with their quality bowling attack, this should be enough runs to defend. Netherlands needs something really special or a miracle if they want to chase this down but we know that they don’t give up easily and it should be a good watch. Join us in a bit for the second essay.
KL Rahul, one of the centurions for India is down for a chat. He says that he hasn’t got a lot of time in the last few games and it was nice to get some time in the middle as a lower middle-order batter it was nice to get away a few big hits early on. Adds that in the final 10 overs, you just have to go and Shreyas was set and they had wickets in hand and he had to go hard. Mentions that it is sometimes difficult to get away the sixes in the final over, so, it was good to get a few of those away. Adds that throughout the tournament they have been able to play according to the game plan and ends by saying that wicket-keeping is his job and he has to do it well, whether he gets enough credit or not.
Netherlands, on the other hand, knew that it was not going to be easy on this wicket and they were taken to the cleaners in the first ten overs. They managed to pull things back a bit after that by getting both of them out but couldn’t really build on that as they allowed the hosts to stitch up a couple of big partnerships. Roelof van der Merwe was brilliant with his spell in the middle overs and also got the huge wicket of Virat Kohli as well. However, the others leaked a bit too much as once again their bowling in the death overs was exposed as they conceded 126 runs in the last ten overs which is a thing you just cannot do if you want to compete against the best. Bas de Leede ended with a couple of wickets and also went past his father, Tim de Leede for picking up the most wickets for Netherlands in World Cups. Paul van Meekeren also chipped in with one but they have a daunting task at their hands now.
The Men in Blue got off to a fiery start with both Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill taking on the Dutch attack and smashing it all around the park. Gill also crossed 1500 ODI runs this year while Rohit became the batter with the most sixes hit in a calendar year. They scored over 90 runs in the first Powerplay with both of them also registering their respective fifties but Gill was dismissed by a fantastic catch in the deep just as they reached the 100-run partnership. Rohit too got out just after the first drinks break. It was that Kohli-Iyer duo again that took the innings forward with good running between the wickets and also the odd boundaries as well. However, much to his disbelief, Virat Kohli lost his wicket just after reaching his 71st ODI half-century. Shreyas Iyer though continued the momentum and found good support from KL Rahul. Iyer changed his gears and got to another lovely half-century. Both of them set a perfect platform and went hammer and ton in the last ten overs as Shreyas Iyer brought up his maiden World Cup hundred while Rahul also registered a swash-buckling 62-ball century at his home ground. They added a huge 208 runs for the fourth wicket while Rahul got out just before the end while Iyer remained unbeaten on 128 off just 94 balls.
What an exceptional batting performance from India! The Indian batters have celebrated Diwali in their own style with a lot of fireworks on the field. They couldn’t quite get to their highest-ever total in ODIs but have managed to get their biggest total in this World Cup and this is exactly what they would have hoped for before going into the semi-finals. This is also the first time that all top-five batters have scored fifties in a World Cup game.
