Bangladesh in Netherlands T20I Series - 2nd T20I

Netherlands v Bangladesh

Netherlands won by 1 wicket (with 0 balls remaining)

Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the second T20 between Bangladesh and Netherlands. Toss: Bangladesh have won the toss and elected to bat.

Captain's thoughts: Both agree it's a bat first pitch, this being the third day it's been in use. Rahim glad to win the toss for once.

The weather is same as yesterday, very hot, cloudless sky, north-easterly breeze across the pitch (left to right from the pavilion end).

Crowd markedly diminished since yesterday, probably most didn't realise there was an extra game.
