14.4

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, no run, stands tall and punches down to mid-off

14.5

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, no run, very nice from Collingwood, holds this back a fraction more and ten Doeschate is almost early on the shot as he plays forward

14.6

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, FOUR, very neat from ten Doeschate as he goes right across his crease then tucks a straight ball down to fine leg...nice use of the wrists, but a good job he didn't miss it

Netherlands 65/2   RN ten Doeschate 4* (12b 1x4)

15.2

Swann to ten Doeschate, 1 run, another well-placed single into the on side which is what Netherlands need to do

Netherlands 69/2   RN ten Doeschate 6* (14b 1x4)

16.2

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, FOUR, top shot...dragged down a little short from Collingwood and ten Doeschate is onto the back foot then drives sweetly off the back foot

16.3

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, 1 run, that's sensible batting to take a single after the boundary

Netherlands 76/2   RN ten Doeschate 11* (16b 2x4)

17.2

Swann to ten Doeschate, 1 run, onto the front foot and opens the face towards backward point...good understanding between these two batsmen

Netherlands 82/2   RN ten Doeschate 12* (19b 2x4)

18.2

Anderson to ten Doeschate, no run, outside off and chopped away to backward point...didn't bounce too much

Netherlands 88/2   RN ten Doeschate 16* (23b 2x4)

19.1

Swann to ten Doeschate, 1 run, waits for this one and plays with the turn into the leg side

19.6

Swann to ten Doeschate, no run, pushed through outside off, solid defence back to the bowler to end another tight over

Netherlands 90/2   RN ten Doeschate 17* (25b 2x4)

20.3

Anderson to ten Doeschate, 1 run, this time ten Doeschate uses the indrift to flick around the corner for a jogged single

20.6

Anderson to ten Doeschate, 1 run, attempted late-dab-cut-prod, too close to off stump for the shot really and it bobbles off the edge

Netherlands 94/2   RN ten Doeschate 19* (27b 2x4)

21.1

Swann to ten Doeschate, no run, ten Doeschate skips down the wicket to Swann's flight but some drop means the batsman can only defend

21.2

Swann to ten Doeschate, no run, huge, tempting, almost morally-corrupt flight but ten Doeschate is monastic in his discipline

21.3

Swann to ten Doeschate, 1 run, this time ten Doeschate gets it away, pushing down the ground

Netherlands 95/2   RN ten Doeschate 20* (30b 2x4)

22.2

Anderson to ten Doeschate, 1 run, wristily driven past the cover point

22.5

Anderson to ten Doeschate, 1 run, 100 up for the Netherlands. Good work too, they have been fluent against all but Swann. They get there courtesy of a mistimed cut

Netherlands 100/2   RN ten Doeschate 22* (32b 2x4)

23.4

Pietersen to ten Doeschate, 1 run, ten Doeschate down on one knee and giving this sweep some humpty down to fine leg

Netherlands 107/2   RN ten Doeschate 23* (33b 2x4)

24.1

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, FOUR, starts with a real offspinner that ten Doeschate sweeps airily but powerfully to the deep midwicket boundary, one-bounce for four. Looked like he made his mind up to play that shot very early

24.2

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, no run, good response from the bowler, on a length and line and blocked

24.3

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, FOUR, The Dutchmen are flying now. Sorry. Quality shot though, ten Doeschate opening the face at the last possible moment to glide it to the third-man boundary. This is doing my fantasy team no end of good

24.4

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, 1 run, ah similarly delicate work to leg, only for one but it looked good

Netherlands 118/2   RN ten Doeschate 32* (37b 4x4)

25.2

Pietersen to ten Doeschate, no run, carefully dropped into the leg side

25.3

Pietersen to ten Doeschate, no run, ten Doeschate advances down the track menacingly... but only to defend

25.4

Pietersen to ten Doeschate, SIX, bosh! He's given that some humpty! Down the track and got the most gentle of full tosses that he swatted into the stands at long-on

25.5

Pietersen to ten Doeschate, 3 runs, full toss followed by a short ball, KP is giving the full exhibition of part-time spin and ten Doeschate is loving it, crashing this towards the cover boundary

Netherlands 129/2   RN ten Doeschate 41* (41b 4x4 1x6)

26.3

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, no run, ten Doeschate pops forward to prod a defence. Rare quiet moment of late

26.4

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, no run, ten Doeschate went for a wander outside leg, giving himself room, Collingwood was unperturbed and kept his length and line straight enough to force a defence

26.5

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, 1 run, milked down the ground for just a single. Decent job this over from Collingwood

Netherlands 132/2   RN ten Doeschate 42* (44b 4x4 1x6)

27.1

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, 1 run, short and a touch wide, hardly the model for medium-pace bowlers, ten Doeschate gets up on his toes to cut wristily to deep third man

27.5

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, 1 leg bye, first extra of the innings! Huge news. Slipped down the leg side and it bobbles away

Netherlands 135/2   RN ten Doeschate 43* (46b 4x4 1x6)

28.4

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, no run, ten Doeschate treating Collingwood like the Sydney Barnes he is and defends very watchfully

28.5

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, no run, more quiet defence, ten Doeschate making sure the 1-brings-2 adage doesn't prove right

28.6

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, no run, ooh, moment of alarm as a single is thought and rethought to Anderson at short midwicket. A direct hit might have been trouble

Netherlands 137/3   RN ten Doeschate 43* (49b 4x4 1x6)

29.3

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, no run, Bresnan pitches the ball up! This is actually full! He was almost rewarded as ten Doeschate, startled by the length, hung back and only just stabbed a bat down in time

29.4

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, no run, again this a fuller length and defended watchfully

29.5

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, 2 runs, long, pleading appeal from Bresnan as ten Doeschate squeezed a drive through cover. It was pad first, but struck outside the line

29.6

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, 1 leg bye, another leg bye bobbles down the leg side for a single. Double this score and we will have a match. Here's Gnasher to tall you more

Netherlands 142/3   RN ten Doeschate 45* (53b 4x4 1x6)

30.1

Swann to ten Doeschate, 2 runs, worked into square leg

30.2

Swann to ten Doeschate, no run, on off stump, defended with bat and pad together

30.3

Swann to ten Doeschate, no run, uses his feet but can't get the ball away into the leg side

30.4

Swann to ten Doeschate, 2 runs, shambles from England! ten Doeschate uses his feet and sends the ball miles in the air, but Pietersen and Anderson leave the catch to each other and it falls embarrassingly in the middle of them both. That was awful

30.5

Swann to ten Doeschate, no run, pushed back to the bowler

30.6

Swann to ten Doeschate, 1 run, and there's his fifty, reached with a tuck into the leg side and that's an excellent innings from Netherlands' key batsman

Netherlands 147/3   RN ten Doeschate 50* (59b 4x4 1x6)

31.1

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, no run, hint of movement back into the batsman who pushes into the off side

31.2

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, no run, worked into the leg side

31.3

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, no run, can't find a gap in the off side, but ten Doeschate knows he needs to bat out the innings after getting that life

31.4

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, 1 run, short ball angled into the body and shovelled into the leg side

Netherlands 148/3   RN ten Doeschate 51* (63b 4x4 1x6)

32.1

Swann to ten Doeschate, 1 run, onto the back foot and worked into the leg side

Netherlands 149/3   RN ten Doeschate 52* (64b 4x4 1x6)

33.1

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, no run, tight on off stump, a walking defensive push can't beat the bowler

33.2

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, no run, nicely timed square drive off the back foot but doesn't beat backward point

33.3

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, 2 runs, angling into the batsman and it's worked nicely past midwicket to bring up Netherlands' 150...the best effort by an Associate so far in this tournament

33.4

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, no run, opens the face but can't beat backward point

33.5

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, 1 run, dropped in short and pulled away through midwicket

Netherlands 152/4   RN ten Doeschate 55* (69b 4x4 1x6)

34.1

Swann to ten Doeschate, no run, tossed up nicely outside off stump and a leading edge goes along the ground to cover

34.2

Swann to ten Doeschate, no run, beat outside off stump, Prior takes the bails off but ten Doeschate's foot is firmly behind the line

34.3

Swann to ten Doeschate, 1 run, dropped into the covers and that's well run

34.5

Swann to ten Doeschate, no run, very full, dug out back to the bowler

34.6

Swann to ten Doeschate, SIX, top shot, superb use of the feet and a flick of the wrists sends this over deep midwicket...this has been a classy innings

Netherlands 162/4   RN ten Doeschate 62* (74b 4x4 2x6)

35.5

Broad to ten Doeschate, no run, short of a length, he tries to find space on the leg side but Broad is quickly onto it in his follow through

35.6

Broad to ten Doeschate, 1 run, hops back in the crease and nudges a single into midwicket and keeps the strike which is ideal for Netherlands

Netherlands 166/4   RN ten Doeschate 63* (76b 4x4 2x6)

36.1

Swann to ten Doeschate, 1 run, worked from outside off wide of short fine-leg

Netherlands 167/4   RN ten Doeschate 64* (77b 4x4 2x6)

37.1

Broad to ten Doeschate, 1 run, full toss on leg stump but it only costs a single as it's flicked straight to deep square

Netherlands 172/4   RN ten Doeschate 65* (78b 4x4 2x6)

38.2

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, no run, onto the front foot but can't find a gap in the off side

38.3

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, 1 run, places this one just wide enough of cover

38.6

Netherlands 186/4   RN ten Doeschate 66* (81b 4x4 2x6)

39.4

Anderson to ten Doeschate, no run, down the leg side, superb take from Prior and a big appeal. Not given by Rauf. Will they review? Nope, and it's a good call as it clipped the pad

39.5

Anderson to ten Doeschate, 1 run, worked out through midwicket

Netherlands 188/4   RN ten Doeschate 67* (83b 4x4 2x6)

40.1

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, no run, carefully blocked back to the bowler

40.2

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, SIX, who needs a Powerplay!? ten Doeschate spots the (even) slower ball and calmly steps down the wicket and smashes powerfully over the long-on rope. Lovely shot, fetched it from outside off with a flick of the wrists

40.3

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, 1 run, this time he gets deep into his crease and flicks a single to leg

40.5

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, 2 runs, England have been ragged in the field all day and again they've fluffed a stop as ten Doeschate turned this towards fine leg where some indecision in the fielding allows them to come back for two

40.6

Collingwood to ten Doeschate, 1 run, ooh, Collingwood is lucky to get away with this. Waist-high full toss asking to be beaten, ten Doeschate picked out fine leg though. Still, the single brings up a 49-ball 50 stand

Netherlands 199/4   RN ten Doeschate 77* (88b 4x4 3x6)

41.1

Anderson to ten Doeschate, 1 run, shorter from Anderson here and it's skims off the edge down to third man

41.5

Anderson to ten Doeschate, FOUR, short ball, not deliberate, just dragged down. It sat up waiting for punishment and ten Doeschate thwacked it through midwicket, sending it skimming to the rope

41.6

Anderson to ten Doeschate, 2 runs, two more as again Anderson ventures leg side, ten Doeschate has supple wrists and flicked away. He looks in complete control at the moment

Netherlands 209/4   RN ten Doeschate 84* (91b 5x4 3x6)

42.2

Broad to ten Doeschate, 2 runs, full and straight this time and not much ten Doeschate can do but flick down the ground. Some very swift running allows him to get back for two

42.3

Broad to ten Doeschate, 1 run, slower delivery again, this time fuller and ten Doeschate plays a very correct check-drive to pick off another single. Mighty innings this

Netherlands 213/4   RN ten Doeschate 87* (93b 5x4 3x6)

43.3

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, FOUR, poor delivery and ten Doeschate cashed in! Slower bouncer dragged leg side, ten Doeschate waited, waited again and then picked a gap fine of a square fine leg and pulled for four

43.4

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, FOUR, shot! Best of the lot and England will be worried now! Full ball is met with a fuller face as he drives powerfully, timing it perfectly to beat mid-off and take him within a six of a World Cup century

43.5

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, 1 run, Bresnan's response is to bang it in short and ten Doeschate is up on his toes to drop a single to the leg side

Netherlands 224/5   RN ten Doeschate 96* (96b 7x4 3x6)

44.2

Broad to ten Doeschate, 2 runs, ooh, he deserves some luck and has found it here! Short ball and the pull shot found a looping top edge that plopped safely into space

44.3

Broad to ten Doeschate, 5 runs, hundred for ten Doeschate and what an innings! 103 off 98 balls, Associate cricket back alive and well! Gets there by flicking a sharp single to short fine leg, throw comes in and cannons off the stumps before running away for four. Is he the first batsman to reach a World Cup hundred with a five?

44.5

Broad to ten Doeschate, FOUR, England rocking here! ten Doeschate is on fire! Poor ball, short and sat up, ten Doeschate clumped it and it rocketed between two fielders deep on the leg side

44.6

Broad to ten Doeschate, 1 run, he keeps the strike by bunting a full ball down the ground

Netherlands 239/5   RN ten Doeschate 108* (100b 8x4 3x6)

45.1

Anderson to ten Doeschate, 1 run, full from the new bowler - Anderson - and flicked into the leg side. ten Doeschate looks to be in some trouble with cramp possibly

45.3

Anderson to ten Doeschate, (no ball) 1 run, oh dear, England really shabby now, high full toss - too high in fact - and swung into the leg side

45.4

Anderson to ten Doeschate, (no ball) FOUR, this is horrid. Anderson has lost it here. Another high full toss - beamer - and it came off a flurry of bat and arms to run away for four. Anderson could be taken out of the attack here for bowling beamers, there is some chat with the umpire but he's allowed to continue

45.4

Anderson to ten Doeschate, 1 run, this is short and a touch wide, cut to point for a sharp single

45.6

Anderson to ten Doeschate, 2 runs, another flick of the wrists from ten Doeschate finds space. Fetching a full ball from outside off to send it hurrying to the midwicket boundary where some desperate, diving fielding saves a couple

Netherlands 253/5   RN ten Doeschate 117* (105b 9x4 3x6)

46.2

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, 1 run, this is smashed straight to cover, either side it might have been four

46.5

Bresnan to ten Doeschate, 1 run, full and straight and even in this mood ten Doeschate can only pick up a single, swishing to leg

Netherlands 257/5   RN ten Doeschate 119* (107b 9x4 3x6)

47.1

Anderson to ten Doeschate, 1 bye, Anderson continues and aims full, ten Doeschate walked a long way outside leg and the bowler followed him. Prior fumbled the take and allowed a bye

47.3

Anderson to ten Doeschate, 1 bye, ooh, ten Doeschate tries to do too much here, aiming a Dilscoop but there are problems here for him as he takes the single. Really pulls up, stretching his leg - he's had calf injuries before so let's hope it's just cramp

Netherlands 262/5   RN ten Doeschate 119* (109b 9x4 3x6)

48.1

Broad to ten Doeschate, OUT, all over for ten Doeschate but it's been one of the great minnow innings. Just got under a short ball and spooned it down to Bopara on the square-leg boundary but a fabulous knock that has put Netherlands in with a real chance of an upset

RN ten Doeschate c Bopara b Broad 119 (160m 110b 9x4 3x6) SR: 108.18

Netherlands 274/6   RN ten Doeschate 119 (110b 9x4 3x6)
