New Delhi: 12 February 2003, Grounds Boland Park in South Africa. The Indian team emerged as a strong contender in the World Cup.

India faced Netherlands in the first match of the tournament. This was the first time in international cricket, when the two teams met each other.

Team India came to play first

For India, the challenge of Netherlands was supposed to be easy but the story changed as soon as the match started. Sourav Ganguly struggled on the pitch from the start and was dismissed for 8 runs off 32 balls. Virender Sehwag could score only 6 runs. Only 17 runs came from Rahul Dravid’s bat, that too from 38 balls. Sachin Tendulkar scored a half-century with one end but he too was dismissed for 52 runs.

Srinath and Kumble became trouble

But apart from that, 7 batsmen could score only 7 runs together. 7 of his batsmen returned to the pavilion on a score of 54.

Edgar Shifferly, who landed at number 9, scored 13 and Jeroen Smits, who landed at number 10, scored 26 runs to take the team to 136 runs. India may have won by 68 runs but Netherlands won hearts.
