Bangladesh to day won their match against Netherlands comfortably and improved their chances of reaching the next round of the tournament. They have got one match to go against strong South Africa. If they can manage to beat them than they don't have to look to any body to sneak into the next round. If West Indies beat England in Chennai on 17th then they don't have to worry for anything they are through even before their match against S.A.. Netherlands winning the toss and opting to bat first could not find their bearing on a slow pitch and could manage only 160 runs loosing all their wickets in 46.2 overs. 4 run outs added to their woes. Bangladesh in reply scored 166 in just 41.2 overs loosing just 4 wickets. This will boost the moral of the team and their supporters to great extent.

Yes, currently they are in the quarter final spot ahead of England. I think England are going to be under heavy pressure in the match against West Indies. If they lose that match they are definitely out. If they win that match, but not by a big margin, then if South Africa manages to lose to Bangladesh, then they still end up as losers. I think their win against England now seems to have that much more significance. Cheers! Ram
