Match 17 of the T20 World Cup 2022 will be played between Bangladesh and Netherlands on Monday in Hobart. The match could be affected by rain, which could ruin the match. The hosts are in a good position to avoid rain, but there is a chance that rain could derail the match.
Litton Das is the team’s most reliable batter.
Litton Das, the wicketkeeper-batsman, has had a shaky T20 World Cup. During the three-match series against Sri Lanka, he failed to hit the required shots and missed crucial catches. However, despite these setbacks, the captain and the team management stood by him. Now, Litton has a fresh mind for the Pakistan series.
The team has not prepared well for the T20 World Cup, winning only two games against the UAE and three out of four against New Zealand. However, with each game, their batting has improved. Shakib Al Hasan and Liton Das have scored the fifties and will likely be fielded together.
Litton Das has become a regular starter for the Bangladesh tigers and scored an ethereal century against India in the Asia Cup final in 2018. His control and aggression were second to none. He has improved as a batsman and is now ready to play big shots, which could be crucial in this year’s World Cup.
Bangladesh has established itself as a tough side in international tournaments. They knocked England out of the World Cup in 2015 and made the semi-finals of the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017. They also beat India and the West Indies. The team’s bowling has improved, but there is still room for improvement. Litton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim have been important in winning the recent tri-nation series against India.
Shakib Al Hasan has been in top-notch form.
The Netherlands will be happy with their overall performance in T20 World Cup Group A. The Netherlands lost their first game to Sri Lanka by 163 runs but will be delighted to beat Bangladesh in Hobart. Despite their recent poor form, the Netherlands are confident they can go far in the tournament. Their coach, Shakib Al Hasan, has dismissed concerns about team selection.
Shakib Al Hasan has been in excellent form for Bangladesh in recent T20 tri-series matches against New Zealand and Pakistan. In three games, he scored 154 runs and took five wickets for just over six runs. Shakib Al Hasan has also taken five wickets in 10 T20Is this year, and his wicket-taking ability is a major asset for Bangladesh.
Shakib Al Hasan has been in superb form for Bangladesh in recent years. He made his international debut in 2007 against India in Chattogram and established himself as one of the best all-rounders in the country. He claimed seven wickets in a Test against New Zealand in Chittagong and made a century against India in 2008. In 2009, he was named Bangladesh’s Test captain. In 2010, he took eight wickets and made a century against New Zealand.
Shakib Al Hasan is in top-notch form and is the backbone of the Bangladesh side. He has been a vital member of the team for over a decade. His excellent bowling has given the team an early lead. In addition to his excellent bowling form, Shakib has taken over 100 wickets in the shortest format. His form will be put to the test in Dhaka on 22nd January.
Taskin Ahmed is a bowler to watch out for
Taskin Ahmed is a Bangladeshi fast bowler. His quick delivery, swing, and bounce can be deadly for the Netherlands. He is a bowler to watch out for during the upcoming game. Disclaimer: The prediction is based on my understanding, instinct, and analysis.
The fast bowler has been a key part of Bangladesh’s series win against Pakistan. He has also been rated the second-fastest bowler in Bangladesh cricket history. He clocked 146 km/h against Afghanistan during the 2015 World Cup and 148 km/h against New Zealand at Hamilton in 2001. He bowls around 87mph and can consistently hit 140 km/h.
Taskin Ahmed is one of the bowlers to watch for at the T20 World Cup 2022. His career has been complicated. He returned to international cricket after a knee injury and took his first wicket within three years of his return. His wickets are a measure of his performance.
India’s pace attack is a concern. It is unclear if Mustafizur Rahman can play as well as he did in the Asia Cup. His ‘Fizz cutter’ has lost some of its sheens over the years, and his overs proved costly during the Asia Cup. The other prominent fast bowlers are Taskin Ahmed and Ebadot Hossain. While Bangladesh had a poor performance in T20Is this year, it lacks consistency in its pace attack.
Although Bangladesh has not been in the best T20 form recently, they have played four Twenty20 Internationals, winning two. They also did poorly in the Asia Cup, losing four of five matches against Pakistan and the UAE. The fast bowlers have much experience in the T20 format, and the team director trusts them.
Shakib Al Hasan
Bangladesh’s performance in the warm-up matches hasn’t been encouraging. Their one-day match against South Africa was washed out due to rain, and their warm-up match against Afghanistan was also lost. They need a win against the Netherlands to get their momentum back.
Shakib Al Hasan is the most experienced batsman for Bangladesh. The team’s other key players are Liton Das, Nurul Hasan, and Afif Hossain. The pace bowling lineup is rounded out by Taskin Ahmed, Nasum Ahmed, and Shoriful Islam. The all-rounders for Bangladesh are Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan Miraz.
Despite a solid start, Bangladesh loses their third wicket. Litton Das (9) falls for nine(11) off the bowling of Logan van Beek. The batsman fails to handle a short ball and plays straight to Tom Cooper at mid-off. In the resulting powerplay, Bangladesh lost its first wicket, and Shakib Al Hasan took over.
Shakib Al Hasan’s batting has been in good form during the T20 tri-series against Pakistan and New Zealand. He played in three games and scored 154 runs at a strike rate of almost 151. He has also claimed five wickets in his ten T20Is this year, so he remains a key spin option for Bangladesh.
The weather forecast for Bangladesh vs. Netherlands match isn’t looking good. Expect showers on match day with a high of 13 degrees Celsius. The average 1st innings score at Bellerive Oval is 169. The Dutch bowlers should take advantage of this weakness and restrict Bangladesh to a score of 165 or less.
Shakib Al Hasan has been in top-notch form during the ICC Champions Trophy.
The Bangladesh cricket team is in a good place if they can keep Shakib Al Hasan’s form going. He has scored two centuries, including one against the West Indies, and has taken five wickets in the past two games. The top-ranked all-rounder in the world has been in good form this tournament, with just one dismissal of fewer than 17 runs in his last 20 innings. Despite this, the wider cricket community has not given Shakib enough credit for his performances.
Shakib Al Hasan is returning home to play in the Lankan Premier League, and the BCB announced its preliminary squads for the West Indies series. Despite the news that Shakib will miss the Bangabandhu T20 final, his stellar form has led to his selection for the Bangabandhu T20 Cup final. The news of his selection in the final has also been reported in the Dhaka Tribune.
Hasan is also in good form off the field. He has captained the Bangladesh cricket team twice at the Under 19 World Cup. In 2016, he was named the Player of the Tournament. After winning the tournament, he was given his first-class call-up against England and took 6/80 in the first innings. He was also awarded Man of the Series. Hasan is a powerful bowler on flat surfaces, and his accuracy makes him a valuable asset to the team. He could prove vital in the hot English summer.
Shakib Al Hasan has been fine throughout the ICC Champions Trophy for Bangladesh. His performances were encouraging, but unfortunately, the results weren’t quite as good for the team. His career-high haul of seven for 36 with the ball was not enough to match the 153 he scored against New Zealand. However, the performance was still positive, and the Bangladesh cricket team was confident in Shakib’s ability to deliver.
