Netherlands 17/0   SCJ Broad 2-1-5-0

Broad to Kervezee, 1 run, slashed down to third man, a touch of width


Broad to Barresi, FOUR, dropped! Down the track, a wild squirted edge, goes high and hard past Prior's outstretched left glove. He didn't actually get a hand to it, but should have done


Broad to Barresi, FOUR, subtle placement! Down the track, an open face, and lifts the ball expertly into the gap at wide third man. No-one there, and that's a brace of boundaries!


Broad to Barresi, no run, pushed onto the back foot, defended out to cover


Broad to Barresi, no run, short, and through to the keeper, who gathers this time

Netherlands 34/0   SCJ Broad 3-1-18-0

Broad to Cooper, no run, slower short ball, die straight, and defended with a hop


Broad to Cooper, no run, defended with a hint of inside-edge, the ball bobbles down into the crease


Broad to Cooper, no run, big stride forward, that ball threatened to bend back in. Defended out to cover


Broad to Cooper, no run, big stride again, pushed out to cover again


Broad to Cooper, 1 run, excellent bouncer, attacking the helmet. Not much the batsman can do, except not get hit or out. Which he achieved


Broad to Barresi, FOUR, that is as poor a delivery as the last one was excellent. Short and wide, and slashed fine through third man. Barresi is flying!

Netherlands 46/1   SCJ Broad 4-1-23-0

Broad to de Grooth, no run, back of a length on off stump and de Grooth blocks into the covers


Broad to de Grooth, no run, well bowled, de Grooth is beaten outside off as he tries to guide down to third man


Broad to de Grooth, 2 runs, nice back-foot drive, stands tall and punches it wide of the cover fielder and the sweeper has work to do


Broad to de Grooth, 1 run, another nice back-foot drive, this time it goes square out to the sweeper


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


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   SCJ Broad 6-2-27-0

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


Broad to de Grooth, no run, short ball and it take de Grooth's glove as he tries to pull but falls well short of Prior


Broad to de Grooth, 2 runs, opts for another short one and this time de Grooth connects well and finds the gap between deep square and long leg


Broad to de Grooth, no run, fuller on off stump, defended back to the bowler


Broad to de Grooth, FOUR, that's a cracking pull, uses Broad's pace and bisects the two fielders in the deep...a valuable innings from de Grooth to give Netherlands the kick they needed


Broad to de Grooth, 1 run, worked off the stumps and that's a decent over for the Dutch

Netherlands 179/4   SCJ Broad 7-2-35-0

Broad to de Grooth, 1 bye, after that long, long wait Broad shoves down a slower ball that de Grooth swings hard at, but misses. Prior fumbled the take and allowed a bye. Broad was less than amused


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


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


Broad to de Grooth, no run, looked, well sounded, like an edge here as de Grooth gave himself room to try and smack the life out of it through cover. Slower ball though and it bounced through to Prior. Batsman guilty of trying to do too much here


Broad to de Grooth, OUT, that's what the Powerplay can do. de Grooth gives himself plenty of room and tries to dispatch a yorker. It was too full, too straight and crashed into the base of middle

TN de Grooth b Broad 28 (47m 31b 3x4 0x6) SR: 90.32


Broad to Borren, 1 run, full and straight again and Borren sensibly gets into line to push down to long-on for one

Netherlands 214/5   SCJ Broad 8-2-39-1

Broad to Borren, 1 run, ideal again from Borren, gets the danger man on strike by dropping a shortish ball into the off side for one


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


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?


Broad to Borren, 1 run, Borren is proving an ideal foil, happily letting ten Doeschate do the work by picking off singles


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


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

Netherlands 239/5   SCJ Broad 9-2-53-1

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


Broad to Borren, 1 wide, short, shoved down the leg side. Lucky there wasn't a bat on this or it would probably have skirted away for four


Broad to Borren, FOUR, Broad is smiling, but he doesn't mean it. Short ball, Borren jumps leg side and top edges a cut that sails over Prior's head and bobbles over the boundary


Broad to Borren, 1 no ball, finally Broad goes full and straight and he's rewarded again with a wicket. Borren giving himself room but it wasn't short so his attempted flay never got near. Excellent cameo knock though from the captain. Hold on, what's going on here!? Borren has stopped going off and he's survived! England only had three inside the circle so it's a no ball! Dear oh dear, the wheels are off and England are a shambles. Collingwood is the offending man, failed to walk in into the circle at midwicket.


Broad to Borren, 1 run, Second life for Borren and he this time bunts a single to cover


Broad to Mudassar Bukhari, 2 runs, two more, scoreboard rattling, England revisiting all their World Cup nightmares here!


Broad to Mudassar Bukhari, 1 run, full and straight and just a single jabbed out this time


Broad to Borren, 2 runs, fullish again and it's worked away to deep backwards square for a couple more. Broad's bowling duty ends but England might need his batting here!

Netherlands 286/6   SCJ Broad 10-2-65-2
