Ireland 332 (Anderson 127, Mooney 63, Doram 5-82) v Netherlands
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Opening batsman John Anderson's maiden first-class century gave Ireland an ideal opening on the first day of their ICC Intercontinental Cup match against Netherlands in Deventer, but a five-wicket haul on debut by 15-year-old spinner Daniel Doram helped the home team wrap up Ireland's innings on 332.

Ireland, after electing to bat, made slow progress in the first session in which 40 overs were bowled, going past 100 for the loss of two wickets. They lost their third wicket, Andrew White, at the start of the second session, but Anderson and Kevin O'Brien scored 89 runs for the fourth wicket to take Ireland into a position of strength. O'Brien, however, missed out on his half-century, after he was caught by Peter Borren off Doram.

Although Ireland lost Stuart Poynter soon after, Anderson found an able ally in John Mooney, and the two added 67 runs for the sixth wicket. Anderson got past the three-figure mark during the course of the partnership, his 100 coming off 246 deliveries. But Anderson's dismissal in the 100th over of the day exposed the tail and Doram dismissed three of the remaining four batsmen to pick up his first five-wicket haul. Mooney was the last batsman to be dismissed after he scored a valuable 63

    What a find for the Netherlands. There must be plenty more talent on the Dutch islands of the Caribbean. 115 overs in a day, outstanding.
