India beat Netherlands by five wickets in a World Cup Group B match played at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi on Wednesday. Earlier, India's spinners strangled Netherlands' batsmen on a lifeless pitch at Feroz Shah Kotla stadium as the World Cup co-host bowled its struggling opponent out for 189 in a Group B match on Wednesday. Slow leftarmer Yuvraj Singh took 2-43 to pass 100 wickets in ODIs and legspinner Piyush Chawla claimed 2-47 as the Dutch were pegged back after a half-century opening stand between Eric Szwarczynski (28) and Wesley Barresi (26). Captain Peter Borren topscored with 38 to give the score some respectability with his late runs but Zaheer Khan mopped up the tail with 3-20. India bowled spin for 24 consecutive overs from the sixth to tie down the batters and having opted to bat first, Netherlands collapsed from 99-2 to 108-6 as it tried to accelerate.
