IND vs NED LIVE: ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Another day, another India match and rain threat on the game once again. Rohit Sharma & Co are bracing for rain to play spoilsport in Sydney, making toss the most important factor. At SCG, the average 2nd innings score has been 138 compared to 163 in the first innings. Hence, Rohit Sharma would need to be “toss ka boss” to have the maximum advantage in case rain does come into play at some point. Follow India vs Netherlands LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN.

As per Australian meteorological department, there is a 40% chance of rain on Thursday. As Wednesday saw Ireland registering a huge upset over England by 5 runs  (DLS Method) after rain played a spoilsport in Melbourne and New Zealand vs Afghanistan was washed out, an upset cannot be ruled out.

Rohit Sharma & Co. will be wary of the conditions as toss will play a crucial factor in the game. India will be heading into the match after a 4 wickets win over their arch-rivals Pakistan in their inaugural Super 12 match while the Netherlands lost their last game to Bangladesh.

IND vs NED LIVE: Why Toss Will be Crucial at SCG?

  • Teams batting first at the SCG have won seven matches.
  • The sides chasing have won five.
  • The par score for the teams batting first has been 163 while for the chasing side it has been 138.
  • The venue has also witnessed some high-scoring matches with Australia registering the highest total when they amassed 221/5 against England in 2007.

  • In the first T20WC match between Australia and NZ at SCG, the Kiwis posted 200.
  • But batting second was a difficult affair.
  • With dew and pitch turning slow, the spinners had an advantage.
  • Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi were both effective as Australia were bowled out for 111.

India will back their strong batting line-up to come out good under these circumstances and clinch a second consecutive win at the marquee venue. However, the likes of the Netherlands medium-pacers Paul van Meekeren and Bas de Leede, will fancy stepping up for their side against a strong Indian side.
