Bangladesh Vs Netherlands Super 12’s WT20 Cup Match Preview
Bangladesh vs Netherlands T20 will be played today at Bellerive Oval in Hobart.
The Netherlands will be pleased with their overall performance in T20 World Cup Round 1 Group A. Despite the fact that they were chasing just 163 runs in their previous match against Sri Lanka, they will still be confident in their chances against Bangladeshi at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart.
The opponent has been in bad form, suffering four straight defeats in the NZ tri-series and then another devastating defeat in the exhibition game. The Bangladeshi coach has been occupied denying rumours that there are problems with the team’s selection.
Bangladesh should benefit greatly from Soumya Sarkar’s return for the T20 World Cup. Even though Shakib is still the team’s leader, his volatility and lack of consistency may make him this team’s weakest link.
The Netherlands brings a top-notch bowling attack that is diverse and has recently displayed consistency. They can be a formidable opponent for Bangladesh, and unless the crucial players step up, the latter could face yet another batting meltdown.
The Bellerive Oval in Hobart often scores 169 runs in the first inning. Both bowlers and hitters enjoy playing there. It is probable that the Dutch bowlers will have an impact in the opening overs and target Bangladesh’s weak points. Since neither club has recently scored a competitive total, we believe a score between 165 and 170 would be sufficient for the team batting first.
In this T20 World Cup, Bangladesh’s starting combination is a major issue. And they want to get that right from the start of the competition. Bangladesh has used 12 different opening combinations over the course of the last 19 innings, with an average opening partnership score of 13.68. This is the lowest score out of the 16 teams competing in this competition.
Recently, Najmul Hossain Shanto has consistently been a part of this opening combo. During the most recent tri-series in New Zealand, several players joined him, including Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz.
Even in the opening match of the tri-series against Pakistan, Miraz opened with Sabbir Rahman. These combinations have all failed.
Shakib Al Hasan and Liton Das are Bangladesh’s most seasoned players in the middle order. Following them in the lineup would be Afif Hossain and Nurul Hasan. They won’t fare well at the World Cup because this isn’t the best Bangladeshi team in recent memory.
The major pace bowlers for Bangladesh will be Nasum Ahmed, Taskin Ahmed, and Shoriful Islam. The finest all-rounders to keep an eye out for are Shakib, Soumya, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz.
Finally, it wouldn’t have been so impossible to envisage a loss for the Dutch when they were had to chase 163 against Sri Lanka.
The key batter for the Netherlands at the top will be Max ODowd. The middle order players to watch out for include Tom Cooper and Colin Ackerman. Roelof van der Merwe, an accomplished all-rounder, is significantly further down the list of competitors.
While the squad’s eight all-rounders give the batting lineup a lot of depth, not all of them are dependable at the plate. Timm van der Gugten, in our opinion, is an impact player who can make a difference with the ball in addition to van der Merwe. The Netherlands lost the subsequent match.
For new-ball bowlers, the pitch is exited early. However, as the game goes on, batters will find it simpler to execute their strokes. On the day of the game, Hobart is forecast to have showers and a high of 13 degrees Celsius.
