17:30 IST : Hello and welcome to the live match updates of the 2018 Hockey World Cup quarterfinal match between India vs Netherlands.

The over all head-to-head record belongs to the Dutch. In the 105 games played between the two sides so far, India have won 33, lost 48 while the rest ended in draws. However, the two sides have shared the spoils since 2013.

India and the Netherlands have faced each other nine times since 2013, winning four matches apiece while one game ended in a draw. For India captain Manpreet Singh, past results hold significance. “The past results matter a lot because the Netherlands have a better result against us. But, we have played well against them recently. We have also beaten them, drew against them at the Champions Trophy. Indian hockey has improved a lot. The match will be tough and whichever team plays better will win, “Manpreet said.

The India-Netherlands duel is expected to be a fast-paced, attacking encounter with both teams heavily relying on their goal scoring abilities to come out on top. While India have scored 12 goals and conceded three in the pool stage, the Dutch have pumped in 18 goals and conceded five. In the likes of Billy Bakker, Seve van Ass, Jeroen Hertzberger, Mirco Pruijser, Robbert Kemperman, Thiery Brinkman, the Dutch have got plenty of experience in the midfield and its strike force. It will be a real test for the Indian defense on Thursday.

The Indians, too, would be relying on their strikers – Mandeep Singh, Simranjeet Singh, Lalit Upadhyay and Akashdeep Singh – to continue their good work. In the other quarterfinal of the Hockey World Cup 2018, Germany will take on Belgium.
