Netherlands 118 for 3 (Barresi 52, Tauqir 2-29) v UAE
Weather continued to be a dampener in Intercontinental Cup matches being played in Europe this month, with only 37.1 overs being bowled on the first day of the game between Netherlands and UAE in Deventer, Netherlands. Offspinner Mohammad Tauqir picked up two top-order wickets in the later stages of the day to bring UAE back level in the game, after Netherlands were put in to bat and got off to a steady start.
The highlight of the day was opener Wesley Barresi's second first-class half-century, which was laced with nine boundaries. After Netherlands lost Steven de Bruin with only 20 runs on the board, Barresi and captain Michael Swart, who scored 33, combined in a 64-run partnership that denied UAE the chance to take full advantage of the conditions. However, soon after reaching his fifty, Barresi was out to the bowling of Tauqir. Ten overs and 21 runs later, Swart fell to give Tauqir his second wicket and UAE a bit of a grip on the game.
