Having won all their matches in the marquee event, Team India will be looking to brush aside the meek-looking Dutch side at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday and enter the WC semi-finals with a bang.  Rahul Dravid, the India coach, has all but ruled out the possibility of making wholesale changes to the XI for their final World Cup league game. ““We’ve had six days off from the last game. So, we’re pretty well rested and the guys are in good shape. That’s all I’ll say without giving away the level. So, we’ve had six days off, we’ve got one game before the semi-final. Boys are rested. So that’s all I’ll say.”
