Dutch skipper cooks far-fetched recipe to upset India

NEW DELHI – Dutch captain Peter Borren has conceived an intriguing recipe to upstage India on Wednesday which requires borrowing Ireland’s discipline, backing it with home-grown talent and then leaving it to the game’s vagaries. On paper, the World Cup Group B contest looks a mis-match featuring tournament favourites India and a Dutch squad, which is essentially made up of a handful of professionals and a host of amateurs trying to make an impact in one-day cricket’s biggest stage. Borren said his men were capable of pulling off an upset as they had come close to beating England earlier in the tournament.
“We will take inspiration from the Irish side which has secured a win (against England) in this tournament… Ireland are a very disciplined side. Hope we can learn something from them,” he said. “We need to bowl a disciplined line and do some extraordinary catching and fielding. Cricket is a funny game and our talented team is capable of creating an upset. “We are looking to get wins here and we need to be at our very best tomorrow. (Fellow non-test playing nations) Ireland and Canada have managed a win in the event and now we are looking to have one under our belt.”
