ICC World Twenty20 2016: Tamim Iqbal stars as Bangladesh beat Netherlands
Netherlands gave a tough fight to Asia Cup T20 finalists.
New Delhi: In the 3rd qualifier of the ICC World Twenty20, Bangladesh beat minnows Netherlands by eight wickets at HPCA Stadium, Dharamsala.
Tamim Iqbal's 83 off 58 balls was the highlighter of the match.
After performing exceptionally well in the recently concluded Asia Cup T20, Bangladesh will be high on confidence against minnows Netherlands. Mashrafe Mortaza-led team has emerged as dangerous unit in limited-overs format since the end of 2014. In today's encounter Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah, Mustafizur Rahman, Al-Amin Hossain and Taskin Ahmed would be their key players.
On the other hand, Netherlands have the likes of Stephan Myburgh, the Cooper brothers and a steady bowling attack, led by captain Peter Borren. Going into the match, Netherlands can take heart from the fact that the Tigers have arrived slightly later than the Dutch in Dharamsala. For the records, Netherlands had beaten Bangladesh in T20I match in the past.
