Bangladesh, the highest ranked team in the qualifiers, had to see off a challenge from Netherlands and secure an eight run win. Batting first Bangladesh posted 153/7 only because Tamim Iqbal played an unbeaten 83-run innings. Netherlands ran close and need 17 off the last over but could only manage eight runs.
