ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Wicket commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 5th match, Group B

England v Netherlands

England won by 6 wickets (with 8 balls remaining)


Bresnan to Kervezee, OUT, short, swished, top-edged, caught. Esay peasy and that's the end of Kervezee. A sparky innings, but picked the wrong stroke for a ball that didn't get up all that much.

AN Kervezee c †Prior b Bresnan 16 (25m 25b 2x4 0x6) SR: 64.00

Netherlands 36/1   W Barresi 20* (13b 4x4)   TT Bresnan 1.2-0-6-1


Swann to Barresi, OUT, Has Swann struck in his first over? Drifts past the edge and Prior whips off the bails. Big appeal and it's gone to the third umpire. This is very close. On the line is out. And he's gone, but in slightly chaotic circumstances as the big screen appears to be broken so the decision is relayed to the on-field umpire

W Barresi st †Prior b Swann 29 (49m 25b 6x4 0x6) SR: 116.00

Netherlands 58/2   TLW Cooper 13* (20b 2x4)   GP Swann 0.4-0-1-1


Collingwood to Cooper, OUT, gone this time. KP's mistake doesn't cost much. Nothing exceptional really, fullish ball chipped straight to short midwicket. Not spectacular but England will be hugely relieved

TLW Cooper c Anderson b Collingwood 47 (84m 73b 3x4 0x6) SR: 64.38

Netherlands 136/3   RN ten Doeschate 43* (46b 4x4 1x6)   PD Collingwood 5.1-0-27-1


Swann to Zuiderent, OUT, gone, Swann makes another breakthrough. Zuiderent never got going today, unlike 15 years ago, and chips a simple catch to midwicket as he tries to find the gap

B Zuiderent c Collingwood b Swann 1 (19m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 10.00

Netherlands 149/4   RN ten Doeschate 52* (64b 4x4 1x6)   GP Swann 7.5-0-20-2


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

Netherlands 213/5   RN ten Doeschate 87* (93b 5x4 3x6)   SCJ Broad 7.5-2-38-1


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   PW Borren 25* (17b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 9.1-2-53-2
