Bangladesh and Netherlands will play the 3rd ICC World Twenty20 (T20) 2016 will play at Dharamsala. The live streaming for this match will be available on starsports.com and live score and updates will be available on Cricket Country. Bangladesh have not played a great innings in Asia Cup final against India as they made entry in the finals for the second time. Netherlands did play the warm-up match winning one match. With Myburgh, Barresi, Borren, the Coopers (Ben and Tom), Mudassar Bukhari, Roelof van der Merwe and Ahsan Malik in their ranks, the Dutch can cause a few flutters in the Bangladeshi camp. Michael Swart, who came into prominence with a buccaneering century against Western Australia in October 2010 in the Sheffield Shield, has been surprisingly left out.

On the other hand, Netherlands don’t get too many opportunities to prove their mettle in the T20 format. Since their famous triumph against England in the T20 WC 2014, the Dutch have only competed in three bilateral T20I series and the T20 WC Qualifiers. After a couple of keenly contested games on Day 1 of the T20 WC, 2016, today, Bangladesh will look to start their campaign on a high against Netherlands. Bangladesh, who were criticised for not pulling their weight in the international arena for long, have checked in a series of impressive performances, in recent times.

Given their recent performances in T20Is, Bangladesh’s cricket is definitely on an upswing. With that comes the pressure of expectations. Easier said than done but for now they will be concentrating on the tougher task of playing a relatively stronger Bangladesh in their first game, and try and cause and upset.
