After eight years Netherlands is in the main draw of the World Cup. They caused some interesting upsets against England back in the day and have a great chance to start the tournament well here. Bangladesh is not in a very good patch in T20 Cricket at the moment. Expectations on them are as low as ever. They come into this tournament with four losses in the recent tri-series. The batting line-up is unstable, and Mustafizur Rahman, a bowler they constantly depend on is out of form. Overall, the fast bowling is decent but still misses

The weather at Hobart is clear and a full game is expected, although there could be a cold breeze and some chilly temperatures.
The Hobart track is normally good for batters. The boundaries are also pretty small and run-scoring should be pretty easy. Batting second will be a better option.
Soumya Sarkar, Litton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Afif Hossain, Yasir Ali, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mosaddek Hossain, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Hasan Mahmud
Vikramjeet Singh, Scott Edwards, Stephan Myburg, Tom Cooper, Tim Pringle, Roloef Van Der Merwe, Fred Klaassen, Shariz Ahmed, Colin Ackermann, Bas De Leede, Logan Van Beek
Given Bangladesh’s struggle a lot relies on Shakib Al Hasan in the upcoming fixture. He is still there best bet and will need to play out of his skins if Bangladesh are to get going anywhere in World Cup.
Vikramjeet Singh has been pretty good up the order over the last few months. He is a capable and talented opener and should make an impact at the top with his solid starts at the top.
Netherlands has a really good chance to pull of an upset right now. They are doing really well, and with Bangladesh struggling, Netherlands has a strong chance of getting a win here.
