1. Wesley Barresi :
Wesley Barresi is one of the few players who played in the 2011 World Cup in India. He is the most experienced player in Netherlands and is a strong player at the top. Barresi will be playing his last World Cup game on Sunday and will look to make it more memorable by playing good innings.
2. Max O’Dowd :
Apart from one innings against England, Max O’Dowd has struggled badly. But he will look to end the tournament on high and play a free-flowing innings. He will be very dangerous in Bengaluru, which is a small ground. Netherlands will hope him to give a good start to challenge India.
3. Colin Ackermann :
Colin Ackermann will be a very important player for Netherlands. He is a vital member of this team because of his all-round ability. He has scored 181 runs so far and can hit the ball well. With the ball, he has taken 5 wickets and is a handy spinner, which can trouble the batter with his tight line..
4. Sybrand Engelbrecht :
Sybrand Engelbrecht has been the player who has scored runs in almost all the games. He has made 255 runs at an average of 36.42 and has been a powerful batter who can hit sixes from any position. A lot will depend on how he bats and take the innings forward.
5. Scott Edwards (c & wk) :
Skipper Scott Edwards will be a big wicket for Indian team because he has scored runs in tough situations, especially in the matches that Netherlands have won. Edwards has scored 242 runs at an average of 40.33 with two half-centuries. Being the captain, he will look to take his team to another win on Sunday.
6. Bas de Leede :
Bas de Leede is the man to watch out for because of his all-round ability. He hasn’t contributed much with the bat apart from a half century, but he has taken most wickets for his team, which is the joint-most for Netherlands in a single edition. He has 14 wickets with the ball and bowled tight overs at the death and will look to contain Indian bowlers.
7. Teja Nidamanuru :
Teja Nidamanuru has played some and missed some matches, but he looked pretty good in the last game against England and remained unbeaten at 39. He is a good striker and can hit sixes against both spinners and pacers, which makes him a difficult batter to bowl against. Nidamanuru will be keen to play an impactful innings against the hosts.
8. Logan van Beek :

With the ball, Logan has taken 12 wickets at an average of 30.45 and is the strike bowler for Netherlands.
9. Roelof van der Merwe :
The veteran pacer Roelof van der Merwe is likely to play his final World Cup game and will be an exciting player. Notably, he has played for RCB in the IPL in his long career and has played in Bengaluru. Van der Merwe will be eager to take the ball in hand and trouble Indian batters.
10. Aryan Dutt :
Aryan Dutt will have a big role because he will bowl in the powerplay. If he can take a couple of early wickets, India will be under a bit of pressure. He has taken 10 wickets so far at an economy rate of 5.34, which is pretty decent for a powerplay spinner. But not to forget, he can hit the ball hard as well.
11. Paul van Meekeren :
Paul van Meekeren will be a threat with the ball because he bowls wicket-to-wicket and can swing the ball to trouble the batters. He has already taken 11 wickets and also won man of the match award against Bangladesh. It will be a big game, and he will like to end it with a good performance.
