Underdog Netherlands beat Bangladesh by 87 runs in the 28th match of the ongoing ICC World Cup 2023 at Eden Gardens on Saturday.

Batting first, Netherlands set a 230-run target for Bangladesh. Chasing the target, Bangladesh could score only 142 runs in 42.2 overs at the loss of all 10 wickets.

Earlier, Netherlands won the toss and decided to bat first against Bangladesh as both sides were fighting for survival in World Cup 2023.

The action of the leading World Cup game moved to Kolkata’s Eden Gardens with both sides having the same records of four losses in the leading cricket tournament and another upset will end the journey.

Bangladesh’s CWC 23 campaign fell gloomily after they kickstarted with a clinical win over Afghanistan, but in their contest against England, New Zealand and India, the Shakib Al Hasan-led side failed to win any game.

Skipper Shakib himself has not performed as he scored 56 runs in four games. The overall performance of Bangla Tigers was not up to the mark while the stakes were high.

Netherlands on the other hand performed well above their weight in World Cup 2023 by outclassing South Africa, and giving tough time to Sri Lanka.
