Netherlands won the toss and batted first in Hard/Hot conditions in the final game of the tour.

We got a wicket off the first ball but it was mostly downhill for us at the Dutch batters scored a dominating 316/9 which turned out to be a great total for them. Polash Sarkar picked up 4 wickets but the pick of the bowlers was Jaydev Gavaskar with figures of 10-0-36-2.

In a carbon copy of the first innings, we also lost a wicket off the first ball, but unlike the first innings most of our batters got starts but they could not stay long enough to score big runs. Peter Parker scored 55 runs and Biplob Hassan top scored for us with 65 runs. We ended up with 246 all out but fortunately this total was enough for us to keep our NRR above both the Netherlands and Pakistan and earn promotion to Division 2 as all 3 of us were tied up 12 points each.

Player of the Day is Jaydev Gavaskar for his economical bowling and he also contributed 25 runs with the bat.

Thanks to all for their support and please continue to support Bangladesh.

Game 1 was against England is Uneven/Sunny conditions.

England won the toss and batted first. Our bowlers started well and maintained the pressure on their batters, which resulted in us dismissing them for 158 and only 4 of their batters managed to get into double figures. All bowlers contributed with the pick of the bowlers being Liton Aziz with figures of 10-1-32-3.

We suffered a disastrous start to our chase as we lost 3 wickets in the first 6 overs and were down to 62/5 in the 17th over. Debutant Kashem Alam managed to stay at the crease and battle to a crucial 45 run innings which took him 104 balls and contributed to a match winning 82 run partnership with Tamim Mashud, who scored an unbeaten 51 to guide us home for a 4 wicket win after Kashem's dismissal.

Player of the Day goes to Kashem Alam for holding our batting together and guiding us home after the top order collapse.

Game 2 vs Australia, once again conditions were Uneven/Sunny.

Australia won the toss and batted first.

Our bowlers made a fantastic start with 3 wickets in the first 10 overs and even had them at 59/5 at one point. Their lower order then managed to put together a couple of useful partnerships which got them to 167. Once again all bowlers were among the wickets with the pick being Mashrafe Mortaza and Polash Sarkar with 3 wickets each.

Once more we lost an early wicket in the chase, but Zahed Bishwash (61) and Kashem Alam (35) managed a good 99 run partnership for the 2nd wicket and at 110/1 things were looking good for us. What then followed can only be described as one of the worst collapses of all-time in FTP, as we somehow lost our remaining 9 wickets for just 14 runs which resulted in a 43 run loss.

Player of the Day goes to Zahed Bishwash for his 61 in an otherwise low scoring game.
