The Dutch, who shared a point with Oman in the rained-off game, had been invited to field after losing the toss but not a single ball was possible due to bad weather.

"There's extreme disappointment. We've put in a lot of time, effort and energy in trying to qualify. For it to end like this after having lost to Bangladesh in a closely-fought game, we are gutted," Dutch skipper Peter Borren said.

"We could have done a lot of things better in that game, it will haunt us for a while. We don't get a lot of opportunities at this stage. As someone says, our next chance could be in four years time."

Meanwhile Oman, who stunned Irleand in their first group encounter, are still in the race for the Super 10 stage.

"We were confident coming into the game. We are still alive if we beat Bangladesh. We put in consistent performances in the qualifiers in Ireland and Scotland. They (players) are all excited," a beaming Oman captain Sultan Ahmed said.

Bangladesh take on Ireland in the second match oat the same venue.
