India aim for Quarterfinal Berth

Equipped with an awe-inspiring batting order, India are looking to steamroller the Netherlands in Wednesday's World Cup Group B match at the Feroz Shah Kotla. India remain unbeaten after three outings so far but their inconsistent bowling remains their major worry, especially the spinners who seem to have completely forgotten the art of bamboozling batsmen. Apart from Zaheer Khan, their pacers have been wayward as well but the batsmen ensured that never cost them a match.

The team under Mahendra Singh Dhoni, however, should win comfortably on Wednesday as the Netherlands on paper simply do not possess a batting line-up strong enough to exploit India's bowling weakness.Peter Borren and his teammates began strongly, going only just down to England but have not been able to replicate that effort in subsequent matches. Their batting has relied heavily on Ryan ten Doeschate and the bowling should simply not be good enough to pose any serious threat to the Indians.
