Bangladesh in Netherlands T20I Series - 1st T20I

Netherlands v Bangladesh

Bangladesh won by 8 wickets (with 12 balls remaining)

1.2

Nazmul Hossain to Swart, FOUR, and another edge! This time it's the inside edge as Swart looks to pull a ball outside the off stump and beats the keeper who is standing up

Netherlands 7/1   MR Swart 6* (5b 1x4)   Nazmul Hossain 0.2-0-6-0

3.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Borren, FOUR, comes down the track and lofts it to long-on for a boundary. He needs to play a captain's innings here

Netherlands 18/3   PW Borren 4* (3b 1x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 0.5-0-4-1

5.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Swart, FOUR, pulls it to deep midwicket for a boundary

Netherlands 27/3   MR Swart 15* (14b 2x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 1.2-0-9-1

6.3

Nazmul Hossain to Swart, FOUR, slower and shorter ball on the leg stump line. Even a fifth grade could have dispatched it. Swart does the same as he pulls it to backward square-leg for a boundary

Netherlands 42/3   MR Swart 30* (19b 3x4 1x6)   Nazmul Hossain 1.3-0-17-0

6.5

Nazmul Hossain to Borren, FOUR, nothing is going Nazmul's way. He bowls a peach of a delivery outside the off stump. Borren comes forward looking to defend and gets an outside edge to third-man for a boundary

Netherlands 47/3   PW Borren 9* (12b 2x4)   Nazmul Hossain 1.5-0-22-0

10.2

Elias Sunny to Swart, FOUR, comes down the track and lofts it to long-on. Mashrafe, for a moment, thought he was in with a chance to take the catch, but dived a touch early and drops it. It is called a boundary after a discussion between the umpires

Netherlands 66/4   MR Swart 42* (30b 4x4 1x6)   Elias Sunny 1.2-0-8-0

11.1

Abdur Razzak to de Grooth, FOUR, moves back and late-cuts it to third-man boundary

Netherlands 74/4   TN de Grooth 10* (10b 1x4)   Abdur Razzak 2.1-0-14-0

12.5

Ziaur Rahman to de Grooth, FOUR, fuller ball on the off stump. de Grooth reverse paddles it over short third-man for a boundary. Second boundary for him

Netherlands 93/4   TN de Grooth 21* (16b 2x4)   Ziaur Rahman 0.5-0-8-0

17.4

Mahmudullah to Mudassar Bukhari, FOUR, cuts it past the backward point fielder for a boundary

Netherlands 119/6   Mudassar Bukhari 11* (13b 1x4)   Mahmudullah 2.4-0-15-1

19.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Gruijters, FOUR, fuller ball on the off stump. Gruijters lofts it over the bowler's head for a boundary

Netherlands 138/7   TGJ Gruijters 15* (14b 1x4)   Mashrafe Mortaza 3.4-1-16-2

19.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to Gruijters, FOUR, short ball outside the off stump. Gruijters looks to pull it and gets a top-edge to fine-leg boundary. 17 runs off the over. Spoiling Mashrafe's figures a bit, that over

Netherlands 144/7   TGJ Gruijters 21* (16b 2x4)   Mashrafe Mortaza 4-1-22-2
