BAN vs NL 2024 Highlights 6-13-2024

Watch cricket video highlights of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 twenty-seventh match between Bangladesh vs Netherlands. Venue of the match will be Kingstown.

Bangladesh defeated Netherlands by 25 runs in the first international match played in Kingstown in over ten years, taking a significant step toward clinching a Super Eights spot at the T20 World Cup 2024. Shakib Al Hasan, who led Bangladesh to 159 for 5 after scoring his first fifty in 20 T20I innings, made a much-needed comeback to form. After reaching 111 for 3 in the fifteenth over, Netherlands made a strong start to the chase. However, to turn the tide of the match, legspinner Rishad Hossain struck three times in four deliveries over the space of two overs.

Shakib and Mustafizur Rahman applied further pressure to Rishad, and the Netherlands collapsed, losing 4 wickets for 6 in 16 balls. With 36 needed from the final two overs, they still had a chance, but Mustafizur Rahman’s cutters proved too strong in the 19th over. The hitters continued to swing and miss as he continued to slant the ball across. After giving up just one run in the 17th over, he gave up just three in that over, and Netherlands were finally held to 134 for 8.

Aryan Dutt was called in by Netherlands for his first game of the tournament because the Bangladesh top order was full of left-handers, and he quickly paid them back. He was brought on in the second over and dismissed the skipper of Bangladesh with his second ball. Najmul Hossain Shanto reverse-swept the harmless-length ball outside off straight to first slip. With a great deal of assistance from Sybrand Engelbrecht, Dutt struck again in his subsequent over. After spotting a slog-sweep, Litton Das managed to get a top-edge just in front of the square.

However, Engelbrecht, who was positioned behind square, dashed to his left, launched a full-length dive, and grabbed a screaming player only inches off the ground. Bangladesh kept scoring at a respectable rate despite the early setbacks. In the third over, Tanzid Hasan hit Vivian Kingma for two fours and a six, and in the fifth over, Shakib hit Paul van Meekeren for another four. In the sixth over, Shakib pounded Logan van Beek for four fours, easily leading Bangladesh to 54 for 2, their biggest powerplay total of the competition.

But the Netherlands was not giving up. The bowlers adhered to their lengths as Captain Scott Edwards called out the adjustments. Bangladesh’s scoring pace decreased as Netherlands only strayed into the full lengths four times in ten overs between the seventh and the sixteenth overs, according to the logs provided. Tim Pringle flattened Towhid Hridoy’s leg stump in the 13th over, and Tanzid misplayed a pull to deep backward square leg in the ninth over as a result of the pressure. With five fours and a six in the middle 10 overs, Bangladesh could only muster 58 runs while losing two wickets.

Shakib last scored fifty in a Twenty20 International match against Pakistan in October of 2022. He hadn’t hit the half-century mark at the T20 World Cup since 2016. But Bangladesh’s stalwart stood tall on this momentous day. At a run-a-ball, he scored his first seven runs and then ramped up his after he figured out the surface. And he continued to rotate strikes without worrying even after the runs stopped in the middle phase.

He finished unbeaten on 64 off 46 balls, his innings replete with nine fours. He reached his fifty off 38 balls and struck de Leede for back-to-back fours in the last over. Mahmudullah (25 off 21) and Jaker Ali (14* off 7) made significant contributions as Bangladesh amassed 47 runs in the final four overs.

Michael Levitt was the greatest run scorer for the Netherlands in Twenty20 Internationals since 2024 began, having amassed 349 runs in nine innings going into this event. He has, however, had a miserable start to the T20 World Cup, with scores of 0 and 1 against South Africa and Nepal. In the opening over, he drove Mustafizur through the covers, seemingly turning the tide against Bangladesh. Then, it appeared as though his campaign was back on track when he hit Taskin Ahmed over the roof at deep midwicket. However, Levitt’s happiness was fleeting. He top-edged a cut off Taskin to Hridoy at point in the fifth over.

The Netherlands concluded the powerplay at 36 for 2 when Max O’Dowd hammered a length ball straight back to Tanzim Hasan in the following over. In the seventh over, Vikramjit Singh hammered Shakib for two consecutive sixes, and in the ninth over, he slog-swept Rishad over deep midwicket. After strolling past a mishandled delivery from Mahmudullah, he got stumped, ending his lively 16-ball performance. However, the Netherlands were still in the running at 69 for 3 in the tenth over.

Engelbrecht and Edwards at the crease appeared to be giving Bangladesh a real fight by the Netherlands. In a 31-ball partnership of 42 for the fourth wicket, the pair raced brilliantly and often hit the boundaries. The Netherlands needed to get 56 off 36 when Rishad entered the game to bowl the fifteenth over. The legspinner felt this over may make the difference in the contest because his previous two overs had gone for 19. In Bangladesh’s favor, it did.

He got Engelbrecht to top-edge a legbreak straight up with his fourth delivery, and Tanzim took the catch at point. After two balls, a ball that spun swiftly beyond his outside edge had de Leede dumbfounded. After Edwards was removed by Mustafizur, the game was effectively finished when Rishad returned Logan van Beek at the beginning of the 18th over.

Later in that over, Dutt hit a six against Rishad, but in the 19th over, Mustafizur’s cutters proved to be too much for him and Pringle to handle. Netherlands eventually failed to reach their goal by a wide margin. The outcome does not automatically guarantee Bangladesh a spot in the Super Eight, nor does it eliminate them from contention. However, Bangladesh now has a great opportunity to advance from Group D after Sri Lanka was eliminated.
