BAN vs NL Match Prediction - Oct 24, 2022

Tournament: ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022.

Date: October 24, 2022

Format: T20

Venue: Bellerive Oval (Blundstone Arena), Hobart, Australia.

Time: 04:00

Netherlands will be reasonably satisfied with their efforts in Group A during the round 1 stages of the world cup 2022. Although their last game against Sri Lanka did not turn out to be the way their captain would have envisaged, they will back themselves to get one across Bangladesh in this encounter. The Netherlands was chasing a target of 163 runs in this match. The good part for them is that their opponents in this game viz. Bangladesh is running in poor form at the moment. They had to endure four back-to-back defeats in New Zealand in a tri-series. This was followed by another big loss in the warm-up match.

The Bangladesh management has strongly dismissed any concerns regarding the team selection. The good news for the Bangla outfit is that Soumya Sarkar is back in its ranks. This is a big boost for the Bangladesh cricket team. Shakib Al Hasan keeps on being the leader of the Bangladesh cricket team but, his lack of form might lead to him being the weak link in the side. The Netherlands bowling attack is a good one and has a lot of variety in it. It has not performed well in the last few games. They may cause serious concerns to the out-of-form Bangladesh batters. Unless the bigger names in the Bangla team pick up the responsibility of scoring top runs, we could see another batting collapse.

BAN vs NL Team Previews


The combination of the opening batsmen is a big problem for the Bangladesh cricket team going into this world cup. They will be looking to get it right from the outset. For their last 19 innings, the Bangladesh cricket team has opted for 12 different combinations. Their opening wicket partnership has averaged 13.68 during this period. This average is the lowest among all the 16 teams participating in the T20 world cup. One player that was a part of the opening wicket combination consistently has been Najmul Hossain Shanto.

Other important players in the Bangladesh batting line-up are Soumya Sarkar, Mahidy Hasan Miraz, and Liton Das. There was one occasion where Miraz also opened the batting together with Sabbir Rahman. This was during the first match of the New Zealand tri-series against Pakistan. None of these combinations at the top of the order are proving to be fruitful to the Bangladesh cricket team. As far as the Bangladesh middle order is concerned, they will rely on the likes of Liton Das and Shakib Al Hasan for making big contributions.

The Bangladesh lower middle order will be in the form of Nurul Hasan and Afif Hossain. The fact remains that this is not the best team to come out of Bangladesh, especially in recent times. Everybody expects that the Bangladesh cricket team will struggle in this world cup. The key bowlers for the Bangladesh cricket team in the world cup are Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, and Nasum Ahmed. These bowlers will handle the fast-bowling attack for the side. The all-rounders that will support the team are Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Shakib, and Soumya.

The Netherlands outfit lost their last match against Sri Lanka but their bowlers did a fair job in the game. They did an even better job in their match before this one. Unfortunately, it was the failure of the batting line-up to live up to the mark that led to the speculations about the team. While chasing a modest total of 112 against the UAE side the Netherlands team lost seven wickets and managed to win the match by a whisker in the end with a ball to spare. Their excellent bowling effort was led by the likes of Bas de Leede, van Meekeren, and Fred Klaasen.

It was the combined bowling effort from the Netherlands bowlers that led to placing the side in a winning position in their first couple of games of the competition. In another game against Namibia, the Dutch team lost five wickets while chasing a modest total of 122 runs. The top-order batsmen failed to maintain a good strike rate. So, this meant their chase was going on till the last over of their innings. But finally, when they had to chase a bigger total of 163 against an established side such as Sri Lanka they faltered.

The key batsman for the Netherlands team will be Max ODowd right at the top of the order. In the Dutch middle order, the batters to watch out for are Tom Cooper and Colin Ackerman. They also have an experienced all-rounder playing in the middle order in the form of Roelof van der Merwe. The addition of eight all-rounders in the team means good depth in the batting order, none of these batters are reliable when it's time to construct their innings. Van der Merwe is an impact player but apart from him, only Timm van der Gugten is capable of providing a match-turning performance.

BAN vs NL Toss Prediction

This toss will not have a major impact on the outcome of the match. Although the sides batting first during the Big Bash League have won 30 matches out of 52, the recent trend shows that there is an even trend for the teams while batting either first or second during the matches. Out of the 6 T20 games played at this venue in this competition so far, the team batting first has won 3 matches. The Netherlands seems to have a decent bowling attack and they are more likely to depend on their bowlers in crunch situations. This same thing applies to the Bangladesh team so, we might see the skipper winning the toss to opt to bat first.

Pitch and Conditions

You can expect some early movement from the pitch for the new ball bowlers. However, with the match, progressing batters might find it easier to play their shots. There is a distinct possibility of rain in Hobart during the match. You can expect temperatures in the region of 13 degrees during the match. The average first innings total at the Bellerive Oval is 169 runs. This venue offers balanced conditions for both batsmen and bowlers. You can expect the Dutch bowlers to make a positive impact in the initial overs to attack the Bangla weakness. None of these two outfits have managed to put a competitive total on the board in recent matches. You can expect the team batting first to score in the region of 170 runs to feel safe while defending a target.

BAN vs NL Betting Tips

The Netherlands team has impressed everybody with their bowling performance. The variety they have in their bowling attack means they are now a force to reckon with. But Bangladesh also has a good fast-bowling attack and they have the experience of their captain with them as an all-rounder. None of these two have a clear advantage over the opposition. So, given the fact that some of the Bangla batters have experience batting in T20 tournaments across the world, and they are a game away from finding the form to get back to winning ways, we recommend betting on Bangladesh to win this match.
