Cricket World Cup 2011: England vs. Netherlands Live Stream (Free Online Video)
England vs. Netherlands Free Live Stream: Today the Poms take on Holland in their 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup Group B clash in Nagpur, India hoping for a good start that would set them up for the bigger games that lie ahead in the tournament.
England is coming off a humiliating 1-6 ODI series loss against defending champion Australia, but recent wins in two practice matches will have gone some way toward boosting player confidence. And for the first time since 1992, the Poms have a clear chance of winning the World Cup.
However, Dutch skipper Peter Borren hopes they can repeat their shock win over England at Lord’s in the World Twenty20 tournament in 2009. The Netherlands stunned the hosts by four wickets which is apparently the most memorable achievement by the Oranje. Borren said: “There’s no doubt that night gave us a bit of confidence going into a fixture on Tuesday which we’ve had two years of preparation for. It would be nice to pull off a victory again.”
The new Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium has hosted only two ODI games. The pitch is quick and good for batting but is renowned for reverse swing.
Players from England: Andrew Strauss (captain), Kevin Pietersen, Jonathan Trott, Ian Bell, Paul Collingwood, Matt Prior (wicketkeeper), Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Michael Yardy, Luke Wright, Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, Ajmal Shahzad, James Tredwell, James Anderson
Players from the Netherlands: Peter Borren (captain), Adeel Raja, Wesley Barresi (wicketkeeper), Mudassar Bukhari, Atse Buurman, Tom Cooper, Tom de Grooth, Alexei Kervezee, Bradley Kruger, Bernard Loots, Pieter Seelaar, Eric Szwarczynski, Ryan ten Doeschate, Berend Westdijk, Bas Zuiderent
