R. Ashwin

On November 12, at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, the India cricket team will play the Netherlands in the final group stage match of the Cricket World Cup. After winning eight straight games, Rohit Sharma has already advanced to the World Cup semifinals. He will now try to complete the group stage undefeated. For the match against the Netherlands, Team India will be looking to rest a few of their key players as they have already advanced to the semi-finals.

These three players could be rested by Team India for the IND vs. NED World Cup match.

India s space star Jasprit Burmah

The leader of Team India’s pace attack has been outstanding with the ball during the competition. The 29-year-old has been extremely economical for the Men in Blue in both the powerplay and death overs, taking 15 wickets in 8 games. The team would not want to jeopardize their best bowler with a semi-final matchup against New Zealand coming up. For the Netherlands match, Prasidh Krishna is probably going to take the veteran pacer’s place.

Mohammed Siraj

Another important player who has made a significant contribution to Team India’s success in the competition thus far is Mohammed Siraj. The pacer, who has taken 10 wickets in 8 games, will be crucial against the New Zealand hitters once more. In addition, he probably got some rest before the match. The pacer from Hyderabad may be a suitable replacement for Shardul Thakur, an all-rounder.

Kuldeep Yadav

One more bowler who has been outstanding for team India so far in the World Cup. In eight games, the spinner has amassed 12 wickets at an average of 22.58. In order to accommodate Ravichandran Ashwin, who has only played one match in the tournament thus far, the Chinaman bowler may be rested for this match.
