Netherlands skipper Peter Borren won the toss and opted to field against West Indies in the World Cup match at Ferozeshah Kotla stadium in New Delhi on Monday.

The Netherlands have gone in with the same team which lost to England.

For the West Indies,
Nikita Miller has come in for Dwayne Bravo.

Injury-ravaged West Indies will have plenty to play for when they take on an inspired Netherlands.

Reeling under a seven-wicket defeat to South Africa on Thursday, West Indies were dealt another blow when key all-rounder Dwayne Bravo was ruled out of the tournament with a knee injury.

West Indies were largely expected to lose to the stronger South Africa but it was the manner of their defeat that rankled their fans the most.

They looked easily capable of putting up a total closer to 300 after promising knocks by
Darren Bravo, Devon Smith and Dwayne Bravo but threw it away all, thanks to some reckless shots.

The Netherlands proved their grit despite having just four professionals in the squad when they gave England a mighty scare in Nagpur.

Led by an attacking 110-ball 119 from Essex all-rounder Ryan ten Doeschate, the Irish racked up 292/6 before England scraped to victory with just eight balls to spare.

Teams

West Indies: D Sammy (c), C Gayle, D Smith, D Bravo, R Sarwan, S Chanderpaul, K Pollard, N Miller, D Thomas, K Roach, S Benn.

The Netherlands: P Borren (c), A Kervezee, W Barresi, T Cooper, R ten Doeschate, B Zuiderent, T de Grooth, Mudassar Bukhari, P Seelaar, B Loots, B Westdijk
