ODI World Cup 2023: Bangladesh vs Netherlands Probable XI, Fantasy XI, Weather Report, and Pitch Report
Bangladesh and Netherlands have a bright chance on Saturday to mark their second and most probably their last win of the ODI World Cup 2023. The Bangla Tigers are expected to do well as they are more wary of the conditions.
Eden Gardens is all set to host the Bangladesh vs Netherlands ODI World Cup 2023 match on Saturday. Both the teams have had an underwhelming World Cup so far with little success against opposition. They now have little chance to go further in the tournament.
The Netherlands marked a remarkable victory against the Proteas. It was expected that the team would pick up their performance in further matches after the motivating victory. However, nothing of the sort has happened as the Dutch were crushed by the Aussies.
Bangladesh was successful in their first ODI World Cup 2023 match by defeating Afghanistan. However, after that initial victory, nothing has gone right for the Bangla Tigers. They have gone on to lose four matches in a row which has led them towards the bottom position in the points table.

Bangladesh: Tanzid Hasan, Litton Das, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Shakib Al Hasan (C), Mushfiqur Rahim (WK), Mahmudullah, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Nasum Ahmed, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam.

Shakib Al Hasan returned to the first team after a short injury spell. Both the teams have rarely put out any strong performance in the ODI World Cup 2023.
