The Netherlands scored a four off the final ball of the match to claim a dramatic one-wicket win over Bangladesh and draw their two-match T20 international series in the Hague.

With one required for victory, number 11 batsman Ahsan Malik struck his first delivery - and the last of the game - to see the home side to a target of 129.

Michael Swart had set up the Netherlands' run chase with 61 off 49 balls, the top score of the innings.

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal, who scored an unbeaten 69 in the previous day's eight-wicket win over the same team, contributed 50 to his side's 128 all out before becoming one of three victims for seam bowler Timm van der Gugten (3-18).
