View dismissal SJ Myburgh c Malinga b Kulasekara 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 81.8 mph, right down the throat of Malinga at third man! Myburgh busts tonight! This was fullish and angled across him as Kulasekara invited the drive. Myburgh doesn't seem like a man who says no thank you to those balls and flayed at it. Gets a very, very thick outside edge that carries all the way to the deep. Malinga looks back to check he hasn't trod on the ropes and then jogs up to celebrate 0/1
View dismissal MR Swart c †Sangakkara b Mathews 0 8 4 0 0 0.00
1.4 85.3 mph, dances down the pitch and he has whacked it, only this takes the top edge. Mathews has adjusted his length and dug in short. No room on offer either as this sails into the night sky but Sanga gets under it with those big gloves and snaps it up. This isn't the Netherlands that played the last game 1/2
View dismissal W Barresi c Chandimal b Mathews 1 6 4 0 0 25.00
1.5 85.2 mph, and another one! This has been thumped straight to the hands of the captain at cover! Netherlands are digging themselves into a great big hole here. Back of a length outside off, he stands up tall and punches it right off the middle but has forgotten all about placement. 1/3
View dismissal TLW Cooper lbw b Mendis 16 37 18 2 0 88.88
8.2 55.8 mph, moves across to off stump in search for the lap over fine leg. The swing doesn't connect and the ball thuds into his pads in front of leg stump. Appeal upheld, umpire's call on hitting leg 33/6
View dismissal PW Borren* lbw b Mathews 0 14 7 0 0 0.00
3.6 87.4 mph, trapped in front by an inswinger! Borren bags the third duck of the innings. This is fullish and drew the batsman forward, but he had to play around the front pad having not taken into account Mathews' swing. 9/4
View dismissal BN Cooper run out (NLTC Perera) 8 13 10 1 0 80.00
6.5 from Mendis, dances down to reach the pitch and has slammed this to long-off. A dive prevents it from reaching the boundary, but they're looking to steal an extra run. Direct hit and Mendis did well to recognise it was on target and pulls his hands away from the line of the throw. Kula, you beauty. Take a bow 25/5
View dismissal Mudassar Bukhari b Malinga 4 15 8 0 0 50.00
9.6 74.2 mph, and another for the slow yorker! This one dipped massively as Bukhari looks for midwicket. Nowhere near this ball as it clips his pad and ricochets onto the stumps. Netherlands are on course for making the lowest total (previous 56) in T20 cricket. 39/8
View dismissal LV van Beek b Malinga 1 5 4 0 0 25.00
9.3 73.2 mph, he ain't doin none o that. This is a slow yorker and he is thoroughly flummoxed by it. Into the flick too early, tries to slow the bat speed but doesn't get it low enough to prevent the ball from sneaking through and clattering into the stumps. Static feet helped too 36/7
View dismissal PM Seelaar c Mathews b Mendis 3 4 3 0 0 100.00
10.1 55.1 mph, caught at slip and Seelaar walks away with a bit of a smile. He knows Sri Lanka have been far too good for them. Slows this up and he gets good turn after pitching it full. He goes forward to block, and gets an outside edge that is pouched by slip who was diving low to his right 39/9
T van der Gugten not out 0 3 0 0 0 -
View dismissal MAA Jamil lbw b Mendis 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
10.3 50.8 mph, and it's been wrapped up in a nice little bow by a wrong 'un. Tossed up on off stump and this rips back in. Malik has no clue this was the variation and was setting himself up to hit it square. By the time he read it off the pitch, it was too late. This is the lowest T20I score in history 39/10

View dismissal MDKJ Perera c Swart b Jamil 14 11 10 1 1 140.00
1.6 68.5 mph, offcutter, this one holds up on the pitch and Kusal has lobbed it straight down the throat of mid-on. Just short of a good length and he was setting up for a pick-up over the leg side, but it comes off the pitch a lot slower than he expects, hits the bat higher that he would like and mid-on dives forward to cling on 20/1
