29-05-2009, 09:03 PM
After the exciting practice match against New Zealand (NZ won in the last ball) Bangladesh has played another excellent practice match against Holland. Bangladesh has blown away Holland woth their superb hitting.

Bangladesh: 206/6 in 20 overs
Holland: 142/10 in 16.3 overs

After 3 quick wickets (Tamim 3, Junaed 17, Shakib 4) the tigers were in a tricky situation. But Tiger Captain Mohammad Ashraful and Mahmudullah Riad came to the rescue by playing a wonderful innings. Both of them scored a fifty. Ashraful has scored 69 in 41 balls and Riad has scored 56 in 34 balls. In Riadís innings there were 6 sixes. Mushfiq (24 in 8) and Rakibul Hasan (27* in 12) also joined the party. Thanks to their wonderful knock Bangladesh cricket team scored 128 in the last 10 overs.

Rubel Hossain was magical with the ball in his hand. He took 4 wickets. Mashrafe and Riad took 2 wickets each. Razzak contributed by taking a wicket.

Today Bangladesh will be playing a practice match against Scotland.

As a fan of Tiger Cricket, it makes me really happy to see that Bangladesh cricket team is performing well. If they are able to play like this in the Twenty20 World Cup 2009, who knows, they might achieve much more than they aimed for.

Improvements needed based on this match:
1. Top order batsmen have to perform better.

Bangladesh seems that it got much better than before and is going to trouble other countries with its play.
Bangladesh troubled NZ till the last ball keeping the match tensed.
It wouldn't be surprise if Bangladesh won the title with playing in the same form and putting all its efforts.
