That's it from the first game of the day. Another match not too far away so join us for that. Till next time, ciao.

6.30pm Great, combined team bowling effort from Bangladesh to notch the points on the board. A spirited Netherlands chase falls short. 153 was always going to be a tough chase with the two-paced surface and against a quality bowling line-up. The bowlers chipped away regularly and ensured the new batsmen struggled with some tight bowling. Plenty of contributions from the batsmen but no one was able to carry on. Not quite attractive cricket, but scrappy wins are still wins and Bangladesh will gleefully accept it.

Tamim Iqbal is the Man of the Match: "After playing a few domestic T20 leagues, the confidence has come back. I've been talking to my coaches and been calm in the middle. They bowled a decent line and length, the wicket wasn't the easiest. I thought we were 15 runs short. We came back from summer, and this has been different. It feels like you have a breathing problem here."

Peter Borren: "Right in the end of our bowling and batting innings, it got away from us. We wanted to be in that position towards the end. Van Meekeren showed good character to come back from that drop and showed the length to bowl."

Mashrafe Mortaza: "They were in a good situation after 10 overs, we got back to back wickets which was the turning point. Last over is always difficult to bowl but the way Taskin was bowling, I was pretty confident that he would do it."

Taskin Ahmed to van Beek, 1 run, full outside off, driven to cover and Bangladesh complete an eight-run win.

Taskin Ahmed to Seelaar, 1 leg bye, nope, and that should be the match. Seelaar backs away looking for the ramp but gets hit on the pad. A leg bye will not be enough for Netherlands

Boundary?

19.4
1
Taskin Ahmed to van Beek, 1 run, that was certainly right there for the big hit but van Beek cannot connect cleanly. Heaved to deep midwicket for a run
19.3
2
Taskin Ahmed to van Beek, 2 runs, full again on middle, pushed down to long-on for a couple. Not quite a yorker and therefore partly in the arc for the big hit but it is a good length to the new man.
19.2
W
Taskin Ahmed to Mudassar Bukhari, 1 run, OUT, lovely yorker. Swiped away to long-on and Seelaar calls him through for the second but Bukhari labours through for the second and is run-out by a mile. Good fielding by the fielder got there quickly and released

Taskin Ahmed to Mudassar Bukhari, 2 runs, oh. In the slot for the big hit but Bukhari is unable to get under it, drives towards long-on for a couple though

17 off the last. An early six would set the cat off. Taskin.

Yashi: "Last over is going to be the difference between the two teams. Netherlands conceded 16 I guess in the final over"
