Eliminator for Netherlands . BD can still beat Nepal and up that NRR. NED will find it hard to beat SL.
An unofficial knockout game perhaps.

Whoever win today would eliminate Sri Lanka and should make it to Super 8.
Should be a bat first surface especially since it's a day game.

For NED to have any chance, they need to bat first of they win the toss.
Since 2023, Bangladesh batters have hit 122 sixes in 27 matches, with a balls per sixes ratio of 23.3, the second highest among participating teams in this T20 World Cup, just behind PNG.

Er good on Bd to capitalise , Netherlands hasn’t improved in so many years they have been playing.

They improved. They beat South Africa twice. Could've beaten them again in this World Cup (SA barely survived).

They need more exposure to improve further.
Poor finish by Van Beek to overpitch. Chacha Mahmudullah looked every bit uncomfortable with good length
NED - 27/1 (5 overs).

133 are needed from 15 overs.

BD need to keep things tidy. Get that NRR go above 10 soon.
I hope Netherlands wins this and knocks out BD out of the tournament.
This cricket ground is right beside Caribbean Sea. So, there is breeze. Not always easy to play big shots.
