Bangladesh vs Netherlands is a match which both nations would’ve targeted for a win in the Cricket World Cup group stage and takes place on Saturday at 9:30 UK time.

Both teams are out of contention for qualification, so only pride is at stake here. Both sides have won only one of their first five matches at the World Cup.

Bangladesh to restore some pride in basement battle

It feels a little bit like the Dutch have run out of steam in this World Cup. The team that delivered a high quality and high paced victory over South Africa a few gamedays ago petered out to a very soft defeat against Australia last time out.

It is perhaps to be expected that something like this might happen. Most of these players are not used to playing such high class matches in such a short space of time and with the relentless nature of the World Cup group stage, there seems to be some hints of tiredness in their key players, with very little depth to change things.

The Bangladesh team are, at least, used to conditions, and with more of their players experienced in top class cricket tournaments, they are well prepared for the number of matches and the required intensity.
