  • October 25, 2023 17:39
    AUS 312/6 in 45 overs

    With wickets falling in quick succession, Australia has been held back a bit and it would have hoped to get more than the 44 runs it got in the last five overs. Maxwell, however, is looking poised for a strong finish as he is unbeaten on 34 off 20.

    Inglis’ breezy innings comes to an end and he has to go for 14 off 12 balls, which included a four and a six. He looks to go for a big hit over deep midwicket but ends up slicing the ball very high in the air and safely taken in the deep, and Bas de Leede has another key wicket.

  • October 25, 2023 17:03
    Hundred for Warner!

    Warner pulls this short one to the square-leg boundary and gets to a 91-ball century. That’s his second ton in a row and sixth in World Cups, and he equals Sachin Tendulkar’s tally.

  • October 25, 2023 16:54
    OUT! Marnus goes for 62

    Marnus Labuschagne was looking really good, especially after hitting Aryan Dutt for a six and four off consecutive balls. But this one holds into the pitch a bit and Marnus ends up driving it to the mid-on fielder off Bas de Leede. Josh Inglis is the new batter.

  • October 25, 2023 16:49
    AUS 231/2 in 35 overs

UltraEdge shows there was a clear edge before the ball thudded into the pads and ran away to the boundary at third-man. Review lost and Marnus survives.

  • October 25, 2023 16:32
    200 up for Australia!

  • October 25, 2023 16:22
    AUS 192/2 in 30 overs

    Just two boundaries in the last five overs and both off the blade of Marnus and off the bowling of Aryan Dutt. Marnus first brought out the reverse-sweep and then swept a full delivery through midwicket. Meanwhile, Warner moves to 87 and nears a second consecutive ton.

  • October 25, 2023 15:56
    AUS 166/2 in 25 overs

    Netherlands got the big fish in Smith but set David Warner would be a difficult batter to deal with. Australia nears 200 and it will be eyeing at least 400.

    Smith falls on 71

    Aryan Dutt to Steve Smith, OUT! Guess who took the catch? van Der Merwe with the catch yet again but Smith is not satisfied. Smith went back and played a late cut straight to the fielder at first slip. Umpires go upstairs and this time the decision goes to the Netherlands. They get the dangerous-looking Smith on 71. In comes, Marnus Labuschagne at number four. He gets off the mark with a single.

    Smith, Warner continue

    David Warner and Steve Smith continue to inflict damage on the Netherlands in the middle overs. Smith, who slowed in the last few overs attacked Bas de Leede with back-to-back boundaries before returning the strike back to Warner. Warner hits a four before his shot against low full-toss went to van der Merwe. Third umpires intervene and give the verdict in favour of Warner as Merwe looks in complete disbelief. Warner ended an eventful over with a cut that went for a four to take 19 off this over.

    Vikramjit Singh also conceded a boundary in his over as Warner gets into his 30s. The partnership meanwhile went past 50.

    AUS 66/1 in 10 overs

    Logan van Beek to bowl his third. Smith hit van Beek for THREE FOURS IN A ROW to start the last over of PowerPlay in some style. Australia 66 for one after 10 overs.

  • October 25, 2023 14:08
    AUS 11/0 in 2 overs

    Pitch Report

    The boundaries are 69 and 61 metres square of the wicket and 72m is the straight boundary. The wicket looks a bit drier than the one that was used for the previous game here. But Waqar Younis reckons this will still be a belter of a wicket for batters.

    Meanwhile, Finch tells the broadcaster that he hasn’t seen much of Travis Head during practice and Australia is likely to rest him for one more game.

  • October 25, 2023 13:12
    AUS vs NED Preview

    Bathed in orange, the Netherlands Residency looks magnificent under the half-moon.

    On this pleasant night, on the sprawling lawns, Teja Nidamanuru is speaking in Telugu to someone; Aryan Dutt is having a lengthy chat with Kartik Murali, trying to pick the India spinner-turned-commentator’s brains; Max O’Dowd, his shoulder-length blond hair glistening under lights, poses for a photograph for the umpteenth time.

    On the stage, the singer is rendering the John Denver classic, Take Me Home, Country Roads.

    It was a night to unwind for the Netherlands players at the party hosted by their country’s ambassador, Marisa Gerards. They seemed to enjoy the attention.

    Mind you, it is a country where, Logan van Beek would say at a press conference, jokes are being made on television shows about cricket being more of a nine-to-five job than a competitive sport.

    Nobody, however, is taking the Netherlands at this World Cup lightly, though it is ranked the lowest (14th) among all the 10 teams. Not even its mighty opponent on Wednesday – Australia.

    The Aussie camp must be relieved that Travis Head is back from injury, but Mitchell Marsh scored a hundred and put on a record 259 for the opening wicket with David Warner, against Pakistan in the last match

    It would be interesting to see if the team management would break that partnership and make Marsh move to No. 3.

    The Netherlands’ problem at the top of the order is entirely different; it needs a good start from O’Dowd and Vikramjit Singh. It could do with some runs from Nidamanuru too.

    The spinners as well as the seamers have delivered for the Dutch. As for Australia, it must be hoping Adam Zampa will continue his great run, which has seen him record four-wicket hauls in the last two games.

    Vikramjit Singh, Max O’Dowd, Colin Ackermann, Bas de Leede, Sybrand Engelbrecht, Teja Nidamanuru, Scott Edwards (wk) (c), Logan van Beek, Roelof van der Merwe, Aryan Dutt, Paul van Meekeren.
