Bangladesh and the Netherlands will contest match 28 of the Cricket World Cup 2023 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. This will be Kolkata’s first game of the 2023 World Cup.
The Netherlands are right at the bottom of the points table. They entered the World Cup as clear underdogs, but their performances have garnered praise, as they came close to victory in several matches. However, apart from the win over South Africa, they haven’t been able to win any other games. In their most recent game, the Netherlands lost to Australia after conceding a massive 399 runs bowling first. The bowlers had no answer to the onslaught and while the batsmen looked nervous in the chase. Logan van Beek continued his impressive run picking up 4 wickets for 74 runs.
For Bangladesh, the dream of securing a place in the top four seems increasingly out of reach as they’ve won only one of their five games. They’ve lost their last four on a trot.
In their recent match against South Africa, Bangladesh, conceded a massive 382 runs in 50 overs while managing to claim just five wickets. In the chase, they were bowled out for 233 in 46.1. Mahmudullah’s knock of 111 stood out for Bangladesh.
