The match is set to take place on Wednesday, 25th October at Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi.
With a string of victories over Sri Lanka and Pakistan, Australia has found their stride, moving up to the fourth position in the standings. This puts them in a promising position for the semi-finals qualification.
They are eager to continue this winning streak in Delhi. The potential return of the in-form batsman, Travis Head, could give Australia an edge against the formidable Netherlands team.
After a surprising 38-run victory over South Africa in Dharamsala, the Netherlands is aiming to claim another significant victory, this time against Australia.
Scott Edwards, the Netherlands’ captain, has been a key player, scoring a total of 124 runs. All-rounder Bas de Leede, with seven wickets under his belt, is the team’s leading wicket-taker. Both players will need to bring their A-game to upset the favoured Australians.

Players to Watch
Australia – Adam Zampa
Adam Zampa, Australia’s leading spinner, is hitting his stride at the perfect time. He has taken four wickets in each of his last two matches against Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
Despite a minor back issue, Zampa has been in top form, with figures of 4/47 and 4/53 in consecutive matches. His performance during the middle overs will be a key factor in the match’s outcome.
Netherlands – Max O’Dowd
While the Netherlands’ top six have delivered solid performances in India, opener Max O’Dowd has yet to make a significant impact, with a top score of 18 against South Africa.
O’Dowd is known for his quick scoring ability, and the Netherlands will be hoping for a breakout performance against Australia’s strong bowling line-up. If O’Dowd can provide a fast start, the Netherlands could be in a position to post a competitive total.
