The India Cricket Team has touched down in Bengaluru for the final league match against the Netherlands in the Cricket World Cup. However, Virat Kohli chose to travel to his second home independently, leaving the team hotel on Sunday night.
With India having already secured a spot in the semifinals, the upcoming IND vs NED match is merely a formality, providing an opportunity to rest Jasprit Bumrah and a key batter.
In a dominating performance, India crushed South Africa in the penultimate league game in Kolkata, restricting them to a mere 83 runs. This victory solidified Rohit Sharma & Co’s position at the top of the points table.
The impending match against the Netherlands on Diwali night is expected to be a ceremonial affair. India’s qualification for the semifinals is confirmed, while the Netherlands team will be making their exit from the tournament.
