In their Group 2 match at the Sydney Cricket Ground, India set the Netherlands a target of 180, with half-centuries from Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav.

India chose to bat first after winning the toss, and lost their opener, KL Rahul, rather early. In the Powerplay, Netherlands’ bowlers showed excellent control, limiting India to a score of 32/1.

But skipper Rohit Sharma then opened up his arms, bringing up a half-century. After achieving his 50, Rohit quickly left after being dismissed for a 39-ball 53.

Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav then upped the aggression, with the former, bringing up consecutive half-centuries in the tournament after his memorable knock against Pakistan. He was well-supported by Yadav, who also played some brilliant shots, bringing up his half-century off the final ball.

Kohli scored a 62* off 44, while Yadav finished up with a 25-ball 51*, as India ended their innings at a score of 179/2 in their 20 overs.
