Venue– Eden Gardens, Kolkata
Date and Time– 28th October, 2.00 PM IST
Bangladesh and Netherlands faced each other in 2 One-day internationals so far with both teams winning 1 match each.
Both teams met each other in the 2011 World Cup Bangladesh won that contest played at Zahur Chaudhary Stadium, Chattogram. It promises to be an exciting contest between two sides that are struggling now.
A total of 35 One-day international matches has been played at this venue with the team batting first winning 20 times while the team chasing won 14 times. It usually helps the seamers initially before it becomes a good pitch to bat on. This will be the first match played at this venue during World Cup 2023.
It promises to be a good contest between bat and ball which will make for a good showing for both teams. The captain that wins the toss would likely bat first putting a total on the board before the spinners play a key role.
