22 February 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Anderson to Barresi, FOUR, poor delivery on the pads, flicked firmly through backward square, Bresnan makes good ground on the slide, but parries the ball into the rope

Netherlands 5/0   W Barresi 4* (2b 1x4)   JM Anderson 0.3-0-5-0

Broad to Kervezee, FOUR, straying onto the pads, and minnow or not, the Dutch don't miss out there

Netherlands 11/0   AN Kervezee 5* (6b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 0.5-0-4-0

Anderson to Kervezee, FOUR, battered! Not quite timed, but the placement was perfect, up and over the infield and into the gap at long-on. Bottom hand is the best hand

Netherlands 16/0   AN Kervezee 10* (11b 2x4)   JM Anderson 1.4-0-11-0

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

Netherlands 26/0   W Barresi 12* (9b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 2.2-1-10-0

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!

Netherlands 30/0   W Barresi 16* (10b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 2.3-1-14-0

Broad to Barresi, FOUR, makes room outside leg, and that is sweetly boshed through the covers! Cracking shot, and the Netherlands are giving England plenty to ponder so far ...

Netherlands 34/0   W Barresi 20* (13b 4x4)   SCJ Broad 3-1-18-0

Bresnan to Cooper, FOUR, that's not the perfect ball to the new batsman... unless you are the new batsman of course! A freebie on leg stump, and four easy runs

Netherlands 40/1   TLW Cooper 4* (1b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 1.3-0-10-1

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   W Barresi 24* (15b 5x4)   SCJ Broad 4-1-23-0

Bresnan to Barresi, FOUR, edged! But no slips. Full outside off, draws the batsman onto the front foot and his drive finds a thick edge which flies through about second slip

Netherlands 51/1   W Barresi 28* (21b 6x4)   TT Bresnan 3.1-0-16-1

Bresnan to Cooper, FOUR, another short ball, drifting down the leg side and pulled away to fine leg. Using the pace on the ball, but the line was poor

Netherlands 56/1   TLW Cooper 11* (16b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 3.5-0-21-1

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)   PD Collingwood 2-0-6-0

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

Netherlands 75/2   RN ten Doeschate 10* (15b 2x4)   PD Collingwood 2.2-0-11-0

Pietersen to Cooper, FOUR, ah the curse of the part-time spinner - the dragged down short ball. Cooper does the business and cuts it away past point to the boundary

Netherlands 105/2   TLW Cooper 38* (58b 3x4)   KP Pietersen 0.2-0-4-0

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

Netherlands 113/2   RN ten Doeschate 27* (34b 3x4)   PD Collingwood 3.1-0-19-0

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

Netherlands 117/2   RN ten Doeschate 31* (36b 4x4)   PD Collingwood 3.3-0-23-0

Swann to de Grooth, FOUR, that's brilliant from de Grooth, brings out a very fine reverse sweep which races to the third-man boundary...clever batting

Netherlands 171/4   TN de Grooth 10* (8b 1x4)   GP Swann 9.2-0-35-2

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

Netherlands 178/4   TN de Grooth 16* (16b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 6.5-2-34-0

Collingwood to de Grooth, FOUR, clever again from de Grooth, scoops this through short fine-leg...Netherlands are standing face-to-face with England, it's great to see

Netherlands 185/4   TN de Grooth 22* (19b 3x4)   PD Collingwood 6.4-0-34-1

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

Netherlands 207/4   RN ten Doeschate 82* (90b 5x4 3x6)   JM Anderson 6.5-0-37-0

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

Netherlands 219/5   RN ten Doeschate 91* (94b 6x4 3x6)   TT Bresnan 8.3-0-37-1

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

Netherlands 223/5   RN ten Doeschate 95* (95b 7x4 3x6)   TT Bresnan 8.4-0-41-1

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

Netherlands 238/5   RN ten Doeschate 107* (99b 8x4 3x6)   SCJ Broad 8.5-2-52-1

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

Netherlands 249/5   RN ten Doeschate 114* (103b 9x4 3x6)   JM Anderson 7.3-0-49-0

Anderson to Borren, FOUR, ah lovely shot! Poor delivery from Anderson, too short and Borren hangs leg side to lift it over short third man for four

Netherlands 266/5   PW Borren 17* (15b 1x4)   JM Anderson 8.4-0-58-0

Anderson to Borren, FOUR, and again! Top cricket from Borren, shocking from England. Short and wide once more, Borren waits leg leg side and thumps it over short third man

Netherlands 270/5   PW Borren 21* (16b 2x4)   JM Anderson 8.5-0-62-0

Anderson to Borren, FOUR, four more! Borren on fire! Oh the Ashes must feel a long way away for Anderson. This time he goes full and Borren, simple as you like, stands still and clumps it back over the bowler's head for four. 15 from the over!

Netherlands 274/5   PW Borren 25* (17b 3x4)   JM Anderson 9-0-66-0

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

Netherlands 279/6   PW Borren 29* (18b 4x4)   SCJ Broad 9.2-2-58-2
