Netherlands vs BangladeshJourney in 2023 CWC

Both Bangladesh and the Netherlands have had a shaky start to their campaign. In mid-tournament, they are fighting to climb up the table and finish the tournament on a high since their chances of making it to the semi-finals are close to impossible.

Both sides have won just one game in the five contests they have featured in so far. With Bangladesh's sole win coming against Afghanistan and the Netherlands' upsetting South Africa a few days ago.

The Dutchmen have dropped to the 10th and last spot in the points table after a mammoth 309-run defeat to Australia on Wednesday night. Similarly Bangladesh are ninth in the table, just above their upcoming opponents, following their loss to South Africa by 149 runs.

Both teams haven’t really locked horns a lot in the limited overs. In ODIs, they’ve met just twice where both sides won a game each.

This makes quite an interesting scenario as both teams will not be able to work out either strengths or weaknesses of the opponent with real experience since they’ve haven’t had any game time together.

2023 CWC Player to Watch Out For

Listing for both team's player.

Litton Das

With a strong bottom hand and a solid gap between both of his hands when he grips the bat, the prolific Litton Das looks supremely elegant with his lofted and ground drives.

He has, however, been very average in the tournament so far by his standards but this doesn’t mean he will remain quiet with his bat till the end.

The right-handed opener has a knack for standing up for his team in dire times and it doesn’t get more tricky as this phase of the world cup. He seems to be taking his time to adjust to the wickets in India.

He averages nearly 33 in ODIs.

Van Beek

Logan Van Beek has been playing the role of one-man army for the Dutchmen for quite a long time. He hasn’t really rested ever since he confirmed a spot for his team in this world cup with a match-winning knock in the qualifiers against West Indies.

The 33-year-old is a gun bowler who can click 14-km/h repeatedly and bat just as well.

He’s one of the most outstanding performers to have made his mark in the Netherlands. Bangladesh will have to be wary of his swing when he will come to bowl with the new ball.

Shakib Al Hasan

Recent news reports have confirmed that Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan has gone to his country for a day or two to train with his local mentor.

This suggests that the gun all-rounder will have tweaked whatever was being an obstacle in his way to play big knocks with the bat.

Some Bangladesh fans were critical of the skipper for flying back to Bangladesh to meet his mentor instead of staying with the team and current team of coaches here in India.

The Netherlands game will be his chance to prove the critics wrong and silence them with his all-round contribution and clinch two important points to up in the table.

So far, his performance with the ball has been decent. He has been economical and kept bowlers in check, especially in the middle overs. But he needs to be at his vintage form to dismantle opposition on Saturday.


With his fourth ODI century coming in the last game against South Africa, Mahumdullah has shown that there is no alternative to experience.

The right-handed batter played a phenomenal knock facing gun fast-bowlers and spinners in the Proteas jersey on Tuesday.

Although his ton was not enough to propel his team to the 400-run target, his positive intent towards batting helped him return to his absolute best with big games coming ahead of the tournament.

He has been slightly demoted down the order, but that has not stopped him from scoring runs. Through the years, the former Bangladesh captain has shown why he’s significant both with the ball and bat.

His addition to the team makes Bangladesh a well-rounded unit as he can bowl off-spin and hit big runs in late overs as a batsman as well.

Netherlands vs Bangladesh Pitch condition

The wicket at the Eden Gardens is generally a batsman’s paradise. It is flat and provides little to no assistance to the bowlers even with the new ball providing no swing.

In the IPL, Kolkata has witnessed high scoring games quite often. If similar conditions are on Saturday, then we are looking at a high-scoring contest between the two sides.

Bangladesh vs Netherlands: Match prediction

Both Bangladesh and the Netherlands have had a below-par performance in the world cup so far. The Netherlands were soaring after beating South Africa a week back, but a thumping loss to Australia has put them back down now.

Bangladesh never really looked to threaten any team this tournament. They let India get away with a win easily and this has been the story of their most games.

The Netherlands have, however, shown that they have what it takes to be a world beater. This is because they field a tad better than Bangladesh. Both teams have match-changing players so it will come down to which team fields better, saves more runs and holds on to important catches.

Scott Edwards and his men will have just a slight advantage over Shakib’s unit on Saturday.

The Dutchmen and Bengal Tigers both are in a similar situation in terms of early elimination from the mega event, but the Netherlands still seem like a more complete and united side as compared to Shakib’s men.
