England and Netherlands will face off in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Wednesday.
Both teams are no longer in contention for a spot in the semifinals but will be eyeing a Champions Trophy 2025 spot. With two wins in seven games, the Dutch are ninth in the 10-team table, while defending champion England is lingering in the last spot with a solitary win in seven matches.
