WICKET! Rohit c Barresi b de Leede 61 (India 129-2)
Cross seam from de Leede, Rohit goes high, higher, and the ball falls safely into the hands of long on. And with that, Bas takes the leading Dutch World Cup wicket taker mantle from dad Tim!
17th over: India 123-1 (Rohit 61, Kohli 7) For a micro-second, it looks as if Kohli has been dropped – but instead it is a great take in the covers. A shout for lbw against Kohli, then Rohit misses a cut, inelegantly. Van der Merwe wrinkles his brow. Drinks.
16th over: India 122-1 (Rohit 61, Kohli 6) de Leede’s turn in the lions’s den. Starts with a wide. Kohli drives – hard – just six inches short of the diving mid-off. And with Gill’s departure, the fireworks have temporarily quietened.
15th over: India 119-1 (Rohit 60, Kohli 5) Rohit sweeps -lazy-daisy- for SIX. Kohli happy to deal in singles.
Fifty for Rohit Sharma!
14th over: India 109-1 (Rohit 48, Kohli 2) Van Meekeren keeping Kohli quiet. He pulls over his shoulder, but without timing. Rohit keeps the sweeties coming – driving gorgeously rhrough the covers, 52 off 44 balls.
“No chance of Indian wickets being cheered unless you-know-who is coming in next.” writes Sahil Agarwal. “Indian crowds are infamous for being extremely myopic and partisan.. I agree about the post-wicket hush, it is so weird.”
13th over: India 104-1 (Rohit 48, Kohli 2) Kohli off the mark with a languid rock and drive. Then a textbook defensive, a single and he keeps the strike.
12th over: India 100-1 (Rohit 46, Kohli 0) Rohit calls for his pipe, and calls for his bowl and also some new gloves/bat. Van Meekeren’s first ball is a head high wide. Gill picks ups fifty with a wristy single, off just 30 balls, before holing out. Enter, the king.
WICKET! Gill c Nidamanuru b van Meekeren 51 (India 100-1)
Excellent catch, on one leg on the b of the boundary edge, as Gill pulls to wide fine leg.
11th over: India 95-0 (Rohit 44, Gill 49) The field spreads, and the Netherlands get some respite. van der Merwe leaks just four singles.
10th over: India 91-0 (Rohit 42, Gill 47) Van Meekren looks as if he wants to disappear into his beard, as Gill hoolas him over long-on for six. A brief pause for a couple of dots, then he pulls him, slightly cramped, forward of square for another four. End of the powerplay
9th over: India 79-0 (Rohit 42, Gill 35) Van der Merwe nearly creates a chance, as Rohit mistimes, skimming mid-on but reaching the boundary anyway. A breather for the Dutch – just six from the over
8th over: India 73-0 (Rohit 37, Gill 34) Van Meeken gets the gig. Gill breaks the non-strikers stumps again, driving so straight, as Rohit dives disgruntledly for safety. Gill scythes at the next, inelegantly, but it falls safely. And then six from the last ball – low and vicious over midwicket.
7th over: India 64-0 (Rohit 36, Gill 26) Rohit – biff – through the covers, then a straight drive into the top tier of the stadium. He now has the most ODI sixes in a calendar year – 59 if you were asking. Colin Ackerman’s first over not stemming the flow.
6th over: India 53-0 (Rohit 25, Gill 26) Anything Rohit can do… Gill shovels van Beek for two fours and a six – over deep backward square leg – slightly confusing to distinguish what is in realtime and what is replay as the television merges the two.
5th over: India 37-0 (Rohit 25, Gill 10) Dutt’s most economical over: four dots … and two boundaries, a divine Rohit off drive and a powerful cut.
4th over: India 29-0 (Rohit 17, Gill 10) Just two singles and a leg bye – and a blow in the box to Rohit. The physio runs out with his box of tricks, and Rohit plays on.
3rd over: India 26-0 (Rohit 16, Gill 9) Dutt again, and Rohit powers a cut off the first ball for four. Then a series of gentle prods until Gill decides to hammer the ball out of the ground – missing only by an advertising board at the top of the stadium.
“Interesting selections by England, and possibly already record breakers. This is surely the biggest number of “nouns as surnames” in any squad ever “ says Jeremy Boyce.
“But(t)ler, Brook, Duckett, Jacks, Pope, Salt, Tongue and Turner.
“Meanwhile, a good chance today for you-know-who to move up the aggregate individual runs table, especially with them batting first, and all to play for in the semis and final.”
Have to admit I looked up a Duckett – “A windowed, box-like structure mounted to the top or side of the brake van of a train,” or a pet name for Marmaduke.
2nd over: India 15-0 (Rohit 11, Gill 3) Van Beek at the other end, more miserly. Gill drives straight back powerfully and hits the non-striking stumps, but a diving van Beek can’t get a paw on it. They steal a single from the last.
1st over: India 11-0 (Rohit 10, Gill 0) The Dutch start with the offspin of Aryan Dutt. The first ball… is a legside wide. The second…gets swept by Rohit high by for four, to electric roars. The fourth goes the same way. “Rohit, Rohit, Rohit,” chant the crowd. The sixth is met politely, with a head over knee, forward defensive.
“I hope the partisan Indian crowd cheer for the Dutch too,” writes Arul Kanhere. “Associate teams need these stages much more. They do not need the weird hush that follows after the opposition hits a four or takes a wicket.”
Here we go! Sorry if my email address was wrong earlier – should work now.
The Anthems . First, the jaunty Dutch one, which sounds like, at any moment, it is going to break into “On the first day of Christmas…” Now the Indian, roared to the stadiumtops by the celebrating crowd.
“As a cricketer this is what you strive to work for,” says Bas de Leede, confusingly wearing blue while Rahul Dravid, interviewed earlier, wears orange. Bas has 14 World Cup wickets, needs another one to overtake dad Tim – who is watching in the crowd.
Here is a gratuitous link to an interview with de Leede, just because he was such a great chap.
Netherlands: Max O’Dowd, Wesley Barresi, Colin Ackermann, Sybrand Engelbrecht, Scott Edwards (c and wk), Bas de Leede, Teja Nidamanuru, Logan van Beek, Roelof van der Merwe, Aryan Dutt, Paul van Meekeren.
India : Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj
Temperatures look divine – between 16 and 28 degrees.
Scott Edwards would have batted first too. He says it looks like a pretty good wicket. “I think we’ve been pretty good overall – this is going to be the biggest crowd we’ve had for the tournament, so we’re really looking forward to it.”
Both sides are unchanged.
India wins the toss and will bat!
Rohit Sharma in mirrored shades says he’ll have a bat because they’ve done it before and have done pretty well….

Good morning and a very happy Diwali! India celebrates with the very last match of the World Cup Group stages, game number 45, or is it 145? The hosts – India the unbeaten – play the Netherlands, down at the foot of the table but with two notable scalps, South Africa and Bangladesh, in their satchel.
India already know where they are heading – to the Wankhede Stadium to play New Zealand in Wednesday’s semi-final. The Netherlands will fly home, but would love to end their plucky campaign by giving India a bump on the nose. The chances look slim – India have been magnificent – but a scare might do India a favour, just a little one to get the juices cooking.
Play starts in Bengaluru at 8.30am, please join us.

Moscow-City: 7 surprising facts about the Russian capital’s business center
1. Guinness World Record in highlining
The record was set in 2019 by a team of seven athletes from Russia, Germany, France and Canada. They did it on September 8, on which the ‘Moscow-City Day’ is celebrated. The cord was stretched at the height of 350 m between the ‘OKO’ (“Eye”) and ‘Neva Towers’ skyscrapers. The distance between them is 245 m. The first of the athletes to cross was Friede Kuhne from Germany. The athletes didn't just walk, but also performed some daredevil tricks. Their record is 103 meters higher than the previous one set in Mexico City in December 2016.
2. Domination of Europe's top-10 highest skyscrapers
7 out of 10 Europe’s highest skyscrapers are located in Moscow-City. Earlier, the ‘Federation Tower’ complex’s ‘Vostok’ (“East”) skyscraper was the considered the tallest in Europe.
Left to right: the lower of the ‘Neva Towers’ (296 m), Commerzbank Tower in Frankfurt (300 m), Gorod Stolits (“City of Capitals”) Moscow tower (302 m), Eurasia tower (309 m), The Shard’ skyscraper in London (310 m), Mercury City Tower (339 m), Neva Towers (345 m).
However, in 2018, the construction of the 462 meter tall ‘Lakhta Center’ in Saint-Petersburg was completed, pushing ‘Vostok’ (374 m) into 2nd place. The 3rd place is taken by OKO’s southern tower (354 m).
3. The unrealized ‘Rossiya’ tower
If all the building plans of Moscow-City were realized, the ‘Lakhta Center’ in St. Petersburg wouldn't have a chance to be Europe's highest skyscraper. Boris Tkhor, the architect who designed the concept of Moscow-City, had planned for the ‘Rossiya’ tower to be the tallest. In his project, it was a 600 meter tall golden cylindrical skyscraper ending with a spire that was inspired by traditional Russian bell towers. Then, the project was reinvented by famous British architect Sir Norman Foster. He had designed ‘Rossiya’ as a pyramid ending with a spire. The skyscraper itself would have been 612 meters tall, and the height including the spire would have reached 744,5 meters (for comparison, the ‘Burj Khalifa’ in Dubai, UAE, would have been just 83,5 meters taller). Unfortunately, the investors faced a lot of economic problems, due to the 2008 financial crisis, so the ‘Rossiya’ skyscraper was never built. A shopping mall and the ‘Neva Towers’ complex was constructed at its place in 2019.
4. Changed appearance of ‘Federation Tower’
In its first project, the ‘Federation Tower’ was designed to resemble a ship with a mast and two sails. The mast was to be represented by a tall glass spire with passages between the towers. It was planned to make a high-speed lift in it. The top of the spire was going to be turned into an observation deck. But the ship lost its mast in the middle of its construction. Experts at the Moscow-city Museum based in the ‘Imperia’ (“Empire”) tower say, that the construction of the spire was stopped, firstly, due to fire safety reasons and secondly, because it posed a threat to helicopter flights – the flickering glass of the spire could potentially blind the pilots. So, the half-built construction was disassembled. However, an observation deck was opened in the ‘Vostok’ tower.
5. Open windows of ‘Federation Tower’
We all know that the windows of the upper floors in different buildings don’t usually open. Experts say that it’s not actually for people’s safety. Falling from a big height is likely to be fatal in any building. The actual reason is the ventilation system. In a skyscraper, it’s managed with a mechanical system, and the building has its own climate. But in the ‘Zapad’ (“West”) tower of the ‘Federation Tower’ complex, the windows can open. The 62nd and last floor of the tower are taken up by a restaurant called ‘Sixty’. There, the windows are equipped with a special hydraulic system. They open for a short period of time accompanied by classical music, so the guests can take breathtaking photos of Moscow.
6. Broken glass units of ‘Federation Tower’
The guests of the ‘Sixty’ restaurant at the top of the ‘Zapad’ tower can be surprised to see cracked glass window panes. It is particularly strange, if we take into consideration the special type of this glass. It is extremely solid and can’t be broken once installed. For example, during experiments people threw all sorts of heavy items at the windows, but the glass wouldn’t break. The broken glass units of ‘Zapad’ were already damaged during shipment . As each of them is curved in its own way to make the tower’s curvature smooth, making a new set of window panes and bringing them to Russia was deemed too expensive . Moreover, the investors had financial problems (again, due to the 2008 financial crisis), so the ‘Vostok’ tower even stood unfinished for several years. Eventually, the cracked window panes were installed in their place.
7. The highest restaurant in Europe
‘Birds’, another restaurant in Moscow-City, is remarkable for its location. It was opened at the end of 2019 on the 84th floor of the ‘OKO’ complex’s southern tower. Guests at the restaurant can enjoy an amazing panoramic view at a height of 336 meters. On January 28, the experts of ‘Kniga Recordov Rossii’ (“Russian Records Book”) declared ‘Birds’ the highest restaurant in Europe, a step toward an application for a Guinness World Record.
