In Netherlands’ first ICC T20 World Cup 2022 Super 12 match, Bangladesh scored 144/8 against the Netherlands who lost all wickets for 135 runs. Bangladesh won by 9 runs against the spirited Netherlands in ICC T20 World Cup 2022. Netherlands’ Colin Ackermann waged a lone battle as he scored 62 off 48 balls before being a victim of Taskin Ahmed. Bangladesh’s Afif Hossain scored 38 while Najmul Hossain Shanto scored 25 and Mosaddek Hossain scored an unbeaten 20.

The in-form Dutch side bowled well for the majority of Bangladesh’s innings and some solid catching in the field meant the Asian side could only muster 144/8 from their 20 overs at Bellerive Oval.  Seamers Paul van Meekeren (2/21) and Bas de Leede (2/19) picked up two wickets apiece. Taskin Ahmed has picked 4 scalps for 25 and Hasan Mahmud has claimed 2 scalps for 15.

After being 31/4 in the Powerplay one would say it was quite a close game. But apart from Colin Ackermann and a few lusty blows from Paul van Meekeren, there were hardly any contributions. Bangladesh just kept picking wickets throughout the innings as the Netherlands did in the first innings.

Bangladesh 144 for 8 (Afif 38, van Meekeren 2-21, de Leede 2-29) beat Netherlands 135 (Ackermann 62, Taskin 4-25, Mahmud 2-15) by 9 runs

The Netherlands have now lost two games in a row – continuing from the qualifying round – and are expected to tweak their line-up to get back on the winning track. The experienced batter Stephan Myburgh could replace Vikramjit Singh at the top in their 2nd ICC T20 World Cup 2022 match.

Netherlands’ most famous moment in world cricket came when they defeated England back in 2009 and they will want such a moment against India in Sydney. But this India side does not look like one to slip on such banana peels and India will start as favorites in this ICC T20 World Cup 2022 match against minnows Netherlands.

India will be high on confidence after they registered an incredible come-from-behind victory over Pakistan courtesy of former skipper Virat Kohli’s magnificent knock of 82* off 53 balls, sealing the chase of 160 on the last ball of the over.

The Netherlands also were involved in a close match against Bangladesh on Monday. The Dutch bowlers had done well to restrict Bangladesh to 144, but the batters had a poor start and were reduced to 15/4.

Colin Ackermann led the fightback with 62 off 48 balls, but eventually, Bangladesh prevailed by 9 runs in their first ICC T20 World Cup 2022 match.  India will be the overwhelming favorite against the Netherlands, who seem to be no match to the Asian giants. Not just win the game, but India is expected to boost their NRR against the Netherlands.
