Team India will be facing the Netherlands for the last league of the 2023 ICC World Cup on 12th November at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. This match will not have any effect on the tournament but it will be a great opportunity for the Indian batter to score some runs on a batting-friendly pitch of the Chinnaswamy stadium.
India have been dominant throughout the tournament with eight wins from eight matches and confirmed themselves at the top of the points table. The reason for India’s success has been the contribution of every single player from the squad with both bat and ball. India’s wicketkeeper batter KL Rahul is also among those players and is the key player for India in the middle order.
The 31-year-old played a crucial knock of unbeaten 97 runs in the opening game against Australia in Chennai when India were struggling at 3 wickets for just 2 runs. This knock gave India a belief that they have a strong middle order in the World Cup which has been a concern for them over the last few years.
However, apart from that knock, Rahul didn’t had a memorable outing in this World Cup but played the role of finisher for India on most occasions when the top-order set the momentum for the team’s victory. He has amassed 245 runs from eight matches at an average of 61.25 with one half-century.
