The Netherlands are not afraid of playing their final 50-overs World Cup match against India, the only undefeated team in the tournament, according to all-rounder Teja Nidamanuru. Despite being qualifiers, the Dutch team has managed to upset South Africa and beat Bangladesh, securing two wins out of their eight matches so far. Nidamanuru expressed excitement about facing the best team in the competition and saw it as another opportunity for the Netherlands to showcase their skills. He emphasized their determination to do their best and highlighted the journey they have gone through to reach the World Cup. Although this is the first time the Dutch team has achieved two wins in a World Cup, Nidamanuru acknowledged that their performances have been inconsistent. He admitted that they have not yet played their ideal game. Nidamanuru, a middle-order batter who bowls off spin, mentioned the limited resources available back home, making it challenging to compete at the highest level. He highlighted the difficulty of facing quality bowlers who deliver fast-paced or turning deliveries. Despite the resource gap, Nidamanuru believed that the Dutch team could improve significantly with more exposure against top teams. He cited the example of Afghanistan, who stunned three former champions in the current edition of the World Cup despite only managing one win in the previous two tournaments. Nidamanuru emphasized that the Netherlands see this as a learning opportunity and are determined to compete, as no one comes to lose or play poorly.
