Bangladesh vs Netherlands- Previews and Betting Tips
Bangladesh have been in the worst form of their life, concerning the shorter format of the game. They have lost their previous four T20Is on a trot and look to be rather wounded than confident entering this tournament. They played in the Asia Cup in August, ending in a disappointing exit from the group stages. Following that, they won a T20I series against UAE by a 2-0 margin. However, the happy smiles were not up for too long.
The Bangla tigers were involved in a one-off T20 tri-series that included Pakistan & New Zealand. Here is where they lost their four matches back-to-back. In a rather disappointing display of cricket, Shakib al Hasan was among the major positives for his side. His consecutive fifties were outstanding, and Liton Das accompanied him with some gritty knocks filled with runs.
Right before kick-starting their campaign, they faced Afghanistan in a warm-up game and lost miserably. Being asked to bowl first, Bangladesh did a decent job. Taskin Ahmed bagged an exceptional 3/30 while Hasan Mahmud & Shakib al Hasan contributed with two wickets each. Their bowling was certainly rewarded, as Afghanistan were restricted to 160/7. While chasing, the tigers choked to the pace bowling line-up of Afghanistan and were restricted to a mere 98/9. It was the worst way to prepare yourselves before a big fixture.
As for the Netherlands, despite a loss in the final group stage game, they made it to the Super 12 courtesy of Namibia missing out. Although, they barely lost the game due to faults of their own. Chasing a 163-run target by Sri Lanka, Max O’Dowd took the onus on his shoulders. He scored a blistering 53-ball unbeaten 71 but couldn’t get his team over the line as the Netherlands ended up losing by just 16 runs.
However, the Netherlands would be looking to take full advantage of this opportunity and keep Bangladesh on the back foot. In their recent 3 games, the Netherlands have 2 wins and are certainly favorites to win the encounter. This will be an encounter where the balance of the match will tilt on plenty of occasions. Hence, we recommend betting while live streaming as the game will have some wonderful odds for great returns. Ensure to do your research since this is Bangladesh’s first official fixture.
The Tigers are certainly lacking the confidence if not the experience. They are a well-balanced side but apart from a few players performing, they haven’t clicked as a team. Nevertheless, here are some players that will be lethal in today’s t20 world cup match. Afif Hossain & Liton Das will be key batsmen for their side. They have scored 279 and 249 runs, respectively, at a very healthy batting average. As for the bowling department, Mosaddek Hossain is leading with 9 scalps in 9 games. Apart from these, Mustafizur Rahman & Shakib al Hasan will be the backbone of the squad with the quality they offer to the side.
Squad: Shakib Al Hasan(C), Sabbir Rahman, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Afif Hossain, Yasir Ali, Nurul Hasan(wk), Mustafizur Rahman, Saifuddin, Taskin Ahmed, Mosaddek Hossain, Najmul Hossain.
The dutch will be looking to capitalize on the wounded tigers, who have been on a very poor run. The Netherlands have a very strong batting line-up which the bowlers equally compliment. Bas De Leede is one name that comes in both places. He’s been in sublime form as he has 347 runs to his name and 17 scalps in just 10 games. Max O’Dowd, who has 315 runs in ten games, is accompanying him with the bat. Fred Klassen is another name with the bowl who has been very economical and has contributed handsomely with his 13 wickets in 8 games. These are some of the names that will prove to be the Netherlands’ dominant warriors.
Squad: Vikramjit Singh, Max O’Dowd, Bas de Leede, Colin Ackermann, Tom Cooper, Scott Edwards(C)(Wk), Roelof van der Merwe, Tim Pringle, Tim van der Gugten, Fred Klaassen, Paul van Meekeren
