If SA had beaten England now BD would only need to win this to qualify... anyway Bangladesh are favourites but match must not be taken lightly... Netherlands put both England and india under pressure to win, Ten Doeschate is a world class player and others like Cooper, Borren, Seelar are good too, so I don't think this will be a walk in the park... keep concentration high!

I honestly hope rokib is gone and we give SN a chance at the number 4 position.
However, I do not want to see Junaid S gone. Yes he has not scored much, but the last two times he has gotten out both of them have been silly mistakes. The coach can talk sense into him now that he sees this as a potential problem. If it was a problem with his skills I would be worried kind of like how I am worried about rokib. Run outs can be fixed, being useless as a batsmen can not.

Really hope we bring back SN to bolster the batting... at the moment our opening batsman are giving us great platforms only to be screwed up by Junaid and Rock... If openers fail, which is bound to happen one of these days we will be 3-4 wkts down very quickly... we need to try and do something about our middle order... The bowlers are doing a find job so i would keep them the same

Hope the tigers keep in mind that this match is not as easy as a walk in the park, so no place of complacency should be in our boys mind.

I want to see only one change in our team, and that is Shahriar Nafees over our coach's lover boy Roqibul. Pathetic failure of our middle order has been unveiled again and we can't just afford to avert our eyes from this big time problem. Our batting is not up to the mark due to this middle order failure and we must not let the problem be overshadowed by our two wins.

March 12 (Reuters) - Facts and figures relating to the Group B World Cup match between Bangladesh and Netherlands (0400 GMT) at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chittagong on Monday.

Head-to-head record:

Netherlands lead 1-0

The two countries have never played in World Cups or in the sub-continent

* In the only match played between these two countries, Netherlands got the better of Bangladesh in Glasgow in July 2010. Bangladesh, led by one of the drivers of Friday's win against England, Imrul Kayes (52), set up a challenging 199 to win in a curtailed 30 overs. However, Netherlands managed to overhaul the target with seven balls to spare.

* Bangladesh (WLWLW) will look to avenge that defeat on Monday, which will also give them a chance to qualify for the quarter-finals if England lose to the West Indies on March 17.

* Netherlands (LLLLL) from Group B -- like Kenya in Group A -- will be playing for pride. They have had the toughest draw having played England, West Indies, South Africa and India in their first four league games.

* Tamim Iqbal (152 runs) leads the Bangladeshi run-scoring chart and Imrul Kayes (111 runs) and Shakib Al Hasan (111 runs) have also been among the runs, though they need to put in longer innings.

* For Netherlands, Ryan ten Doeschate (148 runs) has not scored enough after his century in the opening match against England. However, Tom Cooper (140 runs) has been getting starts in most of his innings

* In terms of bowling, Peter Seelar (with seven wickets) brought the match against India alive with the big scalps of Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar and Yusuf Pathan. He has been well supported by ten Doeschate (six wickets)

* For Bangladesh, their spin attack has not quite had the impact they were expected to have in sub-continental conditions, with only Shakib Al Hasan (five wickets) having taken a few. Shafiul Islam (six wickets) has gamely led the new ball attack, and also finished off the game with the bat against England

eve teasing: what the hell is that? Never heard this word before.

Chittagong game: what does that has to do with anything?

To me the picture shows a passion of a demography that is usually not that interested in cricket getting passionate about it. A sign of rising passion among Bangladeshis about cricket. What what you want of it, just don't do a thread jacking.

I am completely against junaid's exclusion at the moment. I like the way he strokes the deliveries of some of the best bowlers of top teams. But i beleive he is not Ashraful. If we judge the mode of his recent dismissals, he is either the victim of very good ball or run out or stumping. However, this match against Netherlands is our real chance to repair or even better the runrate than other group teams. If we win the toss we should bowl first, and try to bold out the dutch side in a very small total like WI did against us, and then get those runs in as few overs as possible. Batting first and scoring a very big total seems unlikely considering our batting inconsistency.

a few thoughts:

*) no dew factor/ no day night match

**) Ryan Ten Doeschate poses a real threat, this guy could easily make it to the aussie/Sri lankan/Indian any legendary cricketing team in the world. we must contain him.

***) the dutch has a talented lineup in seelar, Mudasser Bukhari, Ten doeschate and a few others. there is no way we should take them lightly. this team scored 292 against England not too long ago.

****) We should confront our fears and bat first. if we truly really believe let's put it into action :flag:

Except the grandpa, everyone else praying like Christian or Hindu. It's like theres only 1% Muslims in Bangladesh. Rest are Christians and Hindus.

it is the image we want to project that even though Bangladesh is a muslim majority nation, we welcome people from all walks of faiths as our brothers and sisters in humanity, more importantly as our fellow countrymen. this is one of the reasons why many hindus in Bangaldesh enjoy Eid as much as a muslim does, or muslims enjoy the festivities of the durga puja just as much as any hindu does(without commiting shirk)!

Teams: Bangladesh (http://www.espncricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/team/25.html)





</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>A day after their upset, the Bangladesh team has already been promised rewards by a private business house: a million taka each to Mahmudullah and Shafiul Islam, the ninth-wicket partnership that fashioned the unlikely win, and a lakh each to the rest of the team. There was even a function organised last night, but the BCB had to get the festivities postponed. The World Cup is not yet over, and Bangladesh need to guard against this kind of complacency when they face Netherlands.

It is an interesting situation that Bangladesh find themselves in. They are alive in the tournament, yet they also rely a lot on England and Ireland not winning their matches against West Indies and South Africa respectively. While that should leave them really charged up for the game against Netherlands, it is not hard to see why complacency can creep in.

Netherlands have never played in Bangladesh before, and they are bound to encounter problems playing the spinners who tied England in knots.
"Each time we play a game, we try to win," Jamie Siddons (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/content/player/7612.html), the Bangladesh coach, said. "So there is no complacency. That game is forgotten now, we move on. Whole new set of players, whole new set of plans, and possibly a whole new team." The whole new team points to the possible inclusion of another left-arm spinner, Surhawadi Shuvo, because Netherlands have a lot of right-hand batsmen in their line-up.

There are other possible distractions too. One of them is Bangladesh's poor net run-rate, at -1.241. To secure themselves against the eventuality of England's beating West Indies and Ireland winning their remaining games, Bangladesh either need to win both their remaining games, or win this one by a margin so huge that they rectify their net run-rate a bit. Beating South Africa, which is Bangladesh's last game, is a huge task, Siddons admitted.

"Mathematically if England win their next game, we can't get in, unless we win against South Africa, which is a very difficult task," Siddons said, the assumption being that Bangladesh beat Netherlands. "I am not going to guarantee that we will win against South Africa. We need to win the next two games. If England win their game, doesn't matter what we do in this game if we can't win the last game. Run-rate is very poor."
The wise thing would be to not go after the net run-rate tomorrow, instead just secure the two points, which going by rankings, they are expected to. Siddons agreed. "We won't focus on the run-rate," Siddons said. "We have got to win the match, and then win against South Africa, and we are through. That's the main focus, make sure we look after the business here. Just execute our plans, no slip-ups tomorrow. And worry about the other results after that. Quarter-finals will be great, but we have got to play good cricket."

Boosting the net run-rate is not an easy task in Bangladesh, unless a team gets dismissed for 58. "The run-rate thing is really difficult here, because our wickets aren't really 300-run wickets," Siddons said. "Whereas over there [in India] it seems everybody is making 300 easily. Our pitches and our grounds are very different to those in India and Sri Lanka. Wickets are a lot harder to make big scores on here. You have to be very careful, chasing 300 on our wickets. Very difficult."
The distractions aside, Siddons was a confident man on the eve of the game. The reason is not hard to see. "Everyone's confidence was a little knocked around [after the 58 all out]," Siddons said. "That [the win against England] gives us confidence again. Our bowlers are definitely doing the job, and our batsmen have stepped up and made enough runs to win the game against a very good team. It gives us a lot of confidence. This team [England] drew with India and beat South Africa, don't forget that. And we beat them. We are ready to go for the next two games."

More importantly, what pleases Siddons is that Bangladesh have won both the games that went close. "I am really happy with the way we are winning the close games," he said. "Against New Zealand as well [in the whitewash], we won a couple of really close games. And Zimbabwe. It's starting to become a feature of our cricket. We don't give up easily. If we get within striking distance, we come out in front rather than lose those games now, which wasn't the case in our history."
Bangladesh will hope they can win against Netherlands without actually making it a tight game, but beware a side that has nothing to lose and a party to spoil.

</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>Netherlands drew the wrong group in this World Cup. They must feel rotten every time they watch Canada and Kenya go through the motions in the other group. However, Group B has been richer for their presence, and they have contributed in their own way in making the group interesting, not least by scoring 292 against England and having India at 99 for 4. Now that they cannot make it to the quarter-finals, Netherlands draw motivation from knowing that they can make the group even more interesting by ruining on a party or two.

"I am not too sure how it will suit Ireland, as in them trying to qualify, but Bangladesh are right in the mix to qualify," Peter Borren (http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc_cricket_worldcup2011/content/player/36592.html), their captain, said. "Ireland also there or thereabouts. It definitely will be our intention to ruin that party for them, and I guess it's nice at this time with our games against Bangladesh and Ireland. It's good that they still have a bearing on the tournament, on the qualification for the next round. It is a very strong group, and we have seen it's not been easy to predict results. It's just great that we can go in there, and the matches that we play still count."

If Netherlands manage to cause an upset in their next game, against Bangladesh, they will have done them a major disservice, for then Bangladesh will have to win against South Africa to have any shot at making it to the next round. They can draw inspiration from their only international meeting with Bangladesh, a six-wicket win in Glasgow, but they know the Glasgow result matters as much to Chittagong as Scotland does to this World Cup.

"There is no doubt we get some positives out of the win we had against Bangladesh last year," Borren said. "We have played them once, and we have had that win. It was in completely different conditions, foreign conditions for Bangladesh, and the end of a long tour for them. We take positives out of it, but we are very realistic about the challenge we are going to confront tomorrow, and in these conditions Bangladesh are obviously a very difficult team to beat."

Netherland's big challenge will be no prior knowledge of the conditions that have managed to surprise the best of the teams. Moreover they have hardly played Bangladesh at top levels. "Our knowledge of our opponents and the conditions are pretty limited," Borren said. "We have watched them play quite a bit, and we saw them play here in Bangladesh, against England the other night, so we are pretty aware of what we are going to come up against. And conditions as well, something we have practised quite a lot playing against spin on slow wickets, coming into this tournament. I guess the match tomorrow, the conditions that we are going to get, are the epitome of what we have been training for."
Netherlands will try to prey on the fact that Bangladesh have a lot more to lose, and that they can be an inconsistent side. "Tomorrow, us coming here and beating Bangladesh at home would be an upset I guess," Borren said. "As we have seen, Bangladesh can be an unpredictable team, a team which has its problem with consistence. After a really good win they had the other day, I know we still have a good chance of beating them tomorrow. That's what we'll be looking to do."

Netherlands might not have much to lose in terms of progression to the next rounds, but they have their goals to attain. Having played the tough teams until now, they are looking to turn a corner in terms of results. "Coming into this tournament we wanted to create chances to win games, and we wanted to try and take those chances," Borren said. "So far we've had a pretty difficult draw, we've come up against four top teams probably, on paper. Obviously tomorrow and Ireland are not going to be easy games.
"But you know we have played against four top teams, we have played two good games against England and I think we competed well with India the other day. Two disappointing performances against South Africa and West Indies in between. To be honest, we have played those four really really tough games, we now look to win these two last games. If we can leave having played four tough games, playing well in them, and then winning these two last games, I think we will be very happy with that."

Apart from that, shuvo's inclusion is a smart decision given the opponent's pack of RH batsmen...technically, replacing nayeem with him should not change the balance, shuvo is an equally good bowler plus committed fielder...and off course, their batting is quite similar as well...!

The wait is killing me. Does anyone have a time machine or time switcher? I would like to fast forward to the game, watch us win, come back to now and celebrate and read your posts with GLEE.

This is the best way to reduce or negative overall run rate.
I did not think about it before but you are spot on. Only way to increase our net rr is to bundle them out cheaply and then chase it exceptionally quickly.

Why would NRR matter anymore? Unless we can demolish the dutch in less than 100 runs and we score them in 12 overs, our NRR will not improve above the West Indies. And keep in mind that if we lose against South Africa, our NRR will dip again... So net net, we are not going to the QF with a NRR advantage, it has to be with the English loss and/Or South Africa Win..

NRR matters becaus if WI loses to eng and their NRR is goint to drop as well, so if wi doesn't win against eng i'll hope that the lose heavily with them, and as much as I am anti-india but stil i'll hope that Wi loses big time with india

Thank you for using the correct team name for the match thread Rubu. I don't see why people use Holland...Holland is only 2 of the 10 or 15 provinces within the Netherlands. It's almost like calling our team Dhaka instead of Bangladesh.

Sunil Gavaskar says that there is moisture on the surface, and there will be help for seamers early on. The moisture will dry out as the day progresses, and the side that wins the toss would want to field first. Overall, a batting surface, with some turn for the spinners later on.
