UAE 74 for 2 trail Netherlands 308 (Bashir 102, Javed 4-49) by 234 runs

Following the washout on day two, Netherlands pushed on to 308 and then knocked over UAE's openers cheaply on the third day of the Intercontinental Cup game in Deventer. Netherlands' total was built around a 107-run stand between Eric Szwarczynski and Shahbaz Bashir for the fourth wicket.

The pair was at the crease at the start of play, and while Szwarczynski fell short of a fifty, Bashir went on to score a century in what is his debut first-class game - he is the first Netherlands' batsman to do so. UAE fought back after that stand, triggering a mini-collapse in which Netherlands lost five wickets for 19 runs to be 267 for 9. However, No. 11 Sebastiaan Braat - also on debut - scored a rapid 23 to push them past 300. Medium pacer Amjad Javed finished with the best figures: 4 for 49.

In the 41 overs Netherlands bowled at UAE, they managed to strangle the run-flow, conceding only 74 and claiming the openers' wickets. Shaiman Anwar and Khurram Khan were batting at stumps.
