As per the data it is proved that winning against Netherlands is going to be quite difficult for the Indian side, but it seems to be possible as per the previous pervious performance of this new team. As per the rankings the Netherlands is in the fourth position and India is just a position below it, this makes this match more interesting one to watch.
It would be a huge match for the Indian team as the whole tournament is happening in the home ground and the team is pretty strong. Eyes would be on the captain to figure out how he is tackling the tough situations in the ground. It’s time for Team India to proof all the previous records wrong and bring the Hockey world cup after 43 years.
