...
That is it from us as Group A begins with a Bangladesh win. Can Ireland start likewise or will there be an upset on the cards? Join Kislaya here to find out.
...
For his unbeaten 83, Tamim Iqbal is the Man of the Match.
...
153 looked like an under-par score but batting got progressively more difficult and the spinners came into it and once that happened, Bangladesh were firm favourites. Despite a couple of useful cameos towards the end, Netherlands fell just short and they will have to re-group and come back to win their next two games to stand any chance of qualifying for the tournament.
...
19.6 Taskin to van Beek, 1 run, driven firmly to cover but Netherlands lose by 8 runs.
...
10 needed of the last ball.
...
19.5 Taskin to Seelaar, 1 legbye, gets down to play the ramp but doesn't connect and only gets a single.
...
19.4 Taskin to van Beek, 1 run, drilled to deep mid-wicket but they wisely decide against the second.
...
19.3 Taskin to van Beek, 2 runs, drilled to long-on once again but the throw to the keeper's end hits the batsman but thankfully there is no appeal from the Banglasehi fielders.
...
14 needed off the last four balls and you suspect that is the end of the Netherlands chase.
...
19.2 Taskin to Bukhari, RUN-OUT, Bukhari goes for another couple but Soumya Sarkar correctly throws it to the keeper's end.
...
19.1 Taskin to Bukhari, 2 runs, nails his yorker and Bukhari drills it down to long-on for a couple.
...
Who will hold their nerve better?
...
17 needed off the last over. Bukhari will be on strike and it will be Taskin Ahmed to bowl the last over.
...
18.6 Al-amin to Seelaar, no run, good wide yorker and he finishes the over with a dot ball.
...
Pressure back on the bowler, 17 needed off 7 balls.
...
18.5 Al-Amin to Seelaar, FOUR, goes across his stumps and ramps it over the fielder at short fine-leg
...
18.4 Al-Amin to Bukhari, 1 run, wonderful yorker and Bukhari can only dig it out and take a single.
...
18.4 Al-Amin to Bukhari, WIDE, the pressure is getting to the bowler.
...
Netherlands back into the game?
...
18.3 Al-Amin to Bukhari, SIX, dances down the track and just wallops him over mid-wicket and he is 10 off 2 balls.
...
18.2 Al-Amin to Bukhari, FOUR, edge and that lobs over keeper's head and races to the boundary.
...
With that Netherlands hopes of a win are all but gone. Can Mudassar Bukhari do something to change that?
...
18.1 Al-Amin to Cooper, WICKET, goes for the reverse ramp and only succeeds in picking out the fielder at short third-man.
...
Two overs to go, Netherlands need 33 to win. It is almost beyond them and they need a miracle to win this one.
