India vs Netherlands Head to Head in ODI World Cup

India-Netherlands is a unique fixture in the ODI World Cup. Both teams have faced each other just twice in ODIs, with India grabbing a comfortable win in the 2003 and 2011 ODI World Cup editions.

Let us look at both matches in brief:

2003 ODI World Cup

The first-ever meeting between both nations came in the 2003 ODI World Cup played in South Africa. At Paarl, India stumbled against the ICC associate nation while batting first. The ‘Men in Blue’ was bowled out for 204, with Sachin Tendulkar emerging as the top-scorer with a half-century. However, Indian bowlers shone brightly. The veteran duo of Javagal Srinath and Anil Kumble took a four-wicket haul each to seal a 64-run win for India.

Scorecard: India 204 all out, 48.5 overs (Sachin Tendulkar 52, Dinesh Mongia 42; Tim de Leede 4/35) beat Netherlands 136 all out, 48.1 overs (Daan van Bunge 62; Anil Kumble 4/32, Javagal Srinath 4/30)

2011 ODI World Cup

The 2011 World Cup was the latest meeting between both teams in the ODI World Cup and the 50-over format. The Netherlands were asked to bat first, and a quality Indian bowling attack bowled out the European nation for 189. Zaheer Khan took three wickets, while Piyush Chawla and Yuvraj Singh took two each. In reply, India lost four wickets before 100 runs on the board. However, Yuvraj’s unbeaten 73-ball 51 saw India home with 81 balls to spare.
