Bangladesh Beats Netherlands by 25 Runs, Moves Closer to Super 8

Bangladesh moved a step closer to the Super 8 stage of the T20 World Cup 2024 by defeating the Netherlands by 25 runs. The match took place at the Arnos Vale Stadium in Kingstown. Bangladesh’s strong performance in the last 5 overs prevented the Netherlands from chasing down the 160-run target, despite a good start.

With this victory, Bangladesh earned 2 important points, securing their hold on the second spot in Group D. Key contributions from all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and young leg-spinner Rishad Hossain helped keep Bangladesh’s hopes alive in the tournament. This win was a big boost for the team, which had been struggling after a series loss to the USA.

Shakib helped Bangladesh post a challenging total. Despite his recent struggles, he played aggressively, hitting both short balls and wide deliveries. His solid innings, along with support from opener Tanzid Hasan and Mahmudullah, helped Bangladesh score 159/5 in 20 overs.



The Netherlands had a good start and reached 110/3 by the 15th over. However, 21-year-old leg-spinner Rishad Hossain, in his first T20 World Cup, turned the game around. He took 2 wickets in 3 balls, breaking the Netherlands’ momentum. Rishad continued his excellent performance by taking another crucial wicket, limiting the Netherlands to 134/8 and sealing the win for Bangladesh.

Sybrand Engelbrecht’s stunning catch to dismiss Litton Das was a highlight. His energy on the field seemed to inspire the Bangladesh team, which fielded exceptionally well, saving crucial runs and maintaining pressure on the Netherlands throughout the game.

This victory not only brought Bangladesh closer to the Super 8 stage but also resulted in the elimination of Sri Lanka, the 2014 T20 World Cup champions. Sri Lanka has now failed to reach the semi-finals for the fourth consecutive time since their title win in 2014.

For cricket enthusiasts using a cricket satta app, this game was a reminder of the unpredictability and excitement T20 cricket brings.
