Despite the relatively modest score, the Netherlands executed their plans effectively on a wicket that favoured their style of play. Their strong fielding complemented their metronomic pace and tight spin bowling.
Bangladesh's batters struggled to find their rhythm, and the partnership between Mahmudullah and Mahedi was cut short by exceptional fielding.
Bangladesh's performance left much to be desired, with none of their batters stepping up for the big occasion. The slow, low wicket was expertly exploited by Edwards, who set the stage for a total that ultimately proved to be sufficient.
The Netherlands showcased their ability to compete at the international level by securing their second victory in the World Cup.
Their past performances against South Africa and the West Indies, coupled with this impressive win against Bangladesh, have solidified their position as a competitive team in the tournament.">
