Indian defence once again buckled under pressure to conceded soft goals and go down 0-2 to a dominating Netherlands side.
India proved to be no match to the Dutch team that was relentless in attack and scored early through Billy Bakker (2nd minute) and Jeroen Hertzberger (18th).
The win took Netherlands to 4 points while India, who next take on New Zealand on Monday, have 1.
