Bangladesh haven’t been in the best of forms in the shortest format. They lost all their matches in the recently-concluded T20I series in New Zealand. They also lost their warm-up match against Afghanistan. A lot will depend on their skipper Shakib Al Hasan and wicketkeeper-batter Litton Das. Their pacers have been in form and veterans Mustafizur Rahman and Taskin Ahmed will look to chip in with the wickets.

Netherlands, on the other hand, enter this contest on a high after qualifying to the Super 12. Ably led by Scott Edward, they will fancy their chances against the Bangla tigers. If Max O’Dowd and Bas de Leed can get support from other batters, Netherlands can put Bangladesh in a spot. Paul van Meekren is their in-form fast bowler who will look to get support from Fred Klaassen.
However, rain is predicted and the two teams can end up splitting the points.
