New Delhi: India captain Rohit Sharma has won the toss and opted to bat first against Netherlands in the T20 World Cup.

We are going to bat first. Yeah, morale is really high. Winning a game like that takes your confidence to the next level but at the same time we understand we need to stay calm, just the first game of the tournament and plenty of things to happen. We have to calm ourselves and look forward to this game,” said Rohit Sharma after winning the toss. 

“We want to keep improving no matter what the results are, it always keeps you in good stead when you are thinking like that. It is important for us to keep ticking those boxes. Touch slower I guess from what we played in Melbourne. The pitch has been used for 40 overs so I expect it is going to be slightly slower. We are used to playing on such tracks. We are playing the same team,” he added.

 

 

Netherlands captain Scott Edwards said, “We would have batted first as well, but just as happy having to bowl first. Our bowlers have been sensational all tournament, hopefully we can continue that and our batters can come out and perform today. Batting is the obvious one (to improve), just need to get some scores together. Same side.”

Teams:

Netherlands (Playing XI): Vikramjit Singh, Max ODowd, Bas de Leede, Colin Ackermann, Tom Cooper, Scott Edwards(w/c), Tim Pringle, Logan van Beek, Shariz Ahmad, Fred Klaassen, Paul van Meekeren
