World Cup 2023, SA vs NED: South Africa Opt To Bowl as Rain Delays Start of Play

Dharamsala: South Africa won the toss and elected to bowl first against the Netherlands in a World Cup match on Tuesday at Dharamsala, with both teams making one change to their respective lineups.

South Africa brought in Gerald Coetzee in place of Tabraiz Shamsi, while the Netherlands handed Logan van Beek a debut at the expense of Ryan Klein.

The start of the match was delayed due to rain. However, the rain had subsided for a brief moment, allowing the toss to happen. Unfortunately, it returned soon after the toss, resulting in a further delay. As of the time of writing this report, the pitch remains under covers, with a prolonged delay anticipated due to the persistent drizzle.

South Africa are the favourites for this match, having won both of their games so far, while the Netherlands have lost both of theirs.
