Dutch win toss, bat first

2011-03-14 06:23

Chittagong - Dutch captain Peter Borren won the toss and elected to bat against Bangladesh in their World Cup Group B match on Monday.

Bangladesh made two changes to the side that upset England last week, and went into the match against the Netherlands with seven left-handers in their line-up.

Shahriar Nafees was picked ahead of the struggling Raqibul Hasan, who fell for a duck against England, while left-arm spinner Suhrawadi Shuvo replaced Naeem Islam.

The Dutch also made two changes, with batsman Atse Buurman and off spinner Adeel Raja both playing their first matches at this World Cup. They were named instead of Bas Zuiderent and Bradley Kruger.

A win for co-hosts Bangladesh, who have won two of their four matches so far, will boost their chances of reaching the quarter-finals. Netherlands are seeking their first win in the event.


Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Junaid Siddique, Shahriar Nafees, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Suhrawadi Shuvo, Abdur Razzak, Shafiul Islam, Rubel Hossain.

Netherlands: Eric Szwarczynski, Wesley Barresi, Tom Cooper, Ryan ten Doeschate, Alexei Kervezee, Tom de Grooth, Atse Buurman, Peter Borren, Mudassar Bukhari, Pieter Seelaar, Adeel Raja.
