In the ongoing World Cup 2023, England, led by Jos Buttler, is seeking to break free from a series of losses as they prepare to face the Netherlands at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. England finds itself at the lower end of the ten-team table, with only one victory out of seven matches played. Although their chances of reaching the semifinals have dwindled, England still has much at stake. With just two matches remaining, including the one against the Netherlands, England aims to secure consecutive wins and finish at least seventh, enabling their qualification for the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy in Pakistan in 2025.
Facing England is the Netherlands, who have secured two victories in the tournament. They hold a slightly higher position than England in the standings and aspire to conclude the tournament on a positive note. Earlier in the competition, the Netherlands pulled off a remarkable victory against South Africa and defeated Bangladesh by a substantial 87-run margin. Following their match against England, the Dutch side will engage in a face-off with India, marking their final appearance in the World Cup.
