Steyn wary of Dutch backlash

South Africa fast bowler Dale Steyn has refused to underestimate the Netherlands ahead of Thursday's World Twenty20 clash in Chittagong.

The Proteas beat New Zealand by two runs on the back of Steyn's four-wicket haul earlier this week, while Sri Lanka crushed the Dutch by nine wickets after bowling them out for just 39.

"We lost our first match so we know that we have to win every game that we play. We can't be taking the Netherlands for granted despite what happened to them against Sri Lanka," said Steyn.

"Sri Lanka have some good bowlers, it's difficult for the associates when they come up against quality teams like Sri Lanka.

"Without disrespecting them, I don't think the associates play against a lot of quality bowlers like that. When they come up against a situation like that it can be quite tricky.

One percenters

"In this tournament if you don't win all of your games it becomes difficult. It's the little one percenters that count in this game."

The venue for the crucial Group 1 game has been boosted by the arrival of on-site generators to run the floodlights.

The Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium endured a power cut during Holland and the Sri Lankans' mismatch.

"These things can happen and they certainly did not turn out over the whole world," said BCB director AZM Nasiruddin.

"Earlier we used the line from the Power Development Board and kept the generators for back-up, but from now on the games will be totally dependent on the generators."
