The Netherlands win by 6 wickets with an over and a ball to spare, and they made it look comfortable too, with Zuiderent and Barresi seeing the Dutch home. Bangladesh batting well in the first 15 overs but then crumbled to an average score which they would have still fancied to defend. They had their own fair share of chances, with some dropped catches and horrible mis-fields but credit to the Netherlands batsmen who didn't succumb to the pressure of a collapse.

This victory also qualifies the Netherlands for the ICC ODI ranking table, along with other associates Ireland and Kenya. Bangladesh will be disappointed after loosing to Ireland last week as well as they struggle to establish the gap between them and the associate nations. However, I think the victory has to go to the Netherlands, rather than Bangladesh loosing the game.

Thanks for joining here at Cricinfo today and we hope you have enjoyed today's commentary of the ODI between Netherlands and Bangladesh at Titwood in Glasgow. Have a good evening.
