Bangladesh beat Netherlands, stay on course for quarterfinal

Monday March 14, 2011 05:54:37 PM, IANS

Chittagong: Imrul Kayes stroked an unbeaten 73 as Bangladesh overwhelmed the Netherlands by six wickets in a World Cup Group B match at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium here Monday to stay on course for a quarterfinal berth.

The Netherlands were bowled out for 160 and Bangladesh reached the target in 41.2 overs.

It was a must-win game for Bangladesh, who now need to beat South Africa Saturday to keep their hopes alive for a quarterfinal berth. Bangladesh, who beat England in the last match, are on six points from five matches.

Kayes shared a 92-run stand for the second wicket with Junaid Siddique (35) after pacer Mudassar Bukhari bowled Tamim Iqbal in the very first over for a duck.

Siddique hit four boundaries in his 53-ball 35 and was caught by Pieter Seelaar off Peter Borren in the 21st over.

Shahriar Nafees chipped in with 37 runs off 60 balls with four boundaries.

Bangladesh bowled a disciplined line. Abdur Razzak, who took three wickets for 29 runs in his 10 overs, led the Bangladeshi attack, which dismissed the Dutch in 46.2 overs. Ryan ten Doeschate remained unbeaten on 53 off 71 balls which included two fours and a six.

The Dutch innings was also marked by four run outs.

Electing to bat, the Dutch were off to a slow start with openers Wesley Barresi (10) and Eric Szwarczynski (28) rustling up just 28 runs in 9 overs before the former was trapped leg before by Shakib Al Hasan in the 10th over. Razzak soon got Mudassar Bukhari (6) in the thirteenth over.

Szwarczynski and Tom Cooper (29) were then run out within three overs to further arrest the Dutch progress. Szwarczynski found himself stranded at the non-striker's end while Cooper ended up having a terrible mix up with Doeschate.

Left-arm spinner Suhrawadi Shuvo dismissed Alexei Kervezee (18) to reduce the Dutch to 113/5 in 33.3 overs.

The Dutch had barely recovered from the loss when Razzak struck twice within two balls of the 38th over to send Tom de Grooth (4) and Atse Buurman (0) back to the shed.
