While India’s batting display was captivating, their bowling performance was equally exceptional. Chasing the formidable target of 411, the Netherlands confronted the challenge of India’s five-pronged bowling attack.

In a surprising twist, Virat Kohli, renowned for his batting prowess, took up the ball. Despite a nine-year hiatus from international wickets, Kohli made a crucial impact in the 2023 World Cup match against the Netherlands. On a sunny Sunday in Bengaluru, Kohli claimed a wicket in his second over. Though not a delivery intended for wickets, fate favored Kohli as the batsman, Edwards, managed only an edge that landed safely in the hands of wicketkeeper KL Rahul, sparking jubilant celebrations.

Leading by example, Rohit Sharma also showcased his bowling skills, leading to the final wicket’s fall. His clever variation and precise ball placement resulted in Teja Nidamanuru’s mistimed stroke, sealing the Dutch team’s fate.

The decision to explore additional bowling options underscores India’s strength and depth in their squad. While the top-order batsmen consistently deliver, the team’s ability to tap into alternative bowling resources is a significant asset.
