ICC Cricket World Cup - 13th match, Group B

Netherlands v West Indies

West Indies won by 215 runs

16.3

Loots to Smith, OUT, breakthrough for Netherlands, finally, Smith goes, tried to cut away this delivery which is too close, stayed low too, he got a thin edge through to the keeper, it was a neat take from him, umpire Taufel sends Smith on his way

DS Smith c †Barresi b Loots 53 (67m 51b 9x4 0x6) SR: 103.92

West Indies 100/1   CH Gayle 39* (48b 6x4)   BP Loots 3.3-0-23-1

31.2

Seelaar to Bravo, OUT, Seelar is rewarded for flighting the ball with control, he bowled this a little wider outside off stump, Bravo had already decided where this one was to go, he darted down the pitch, had to reach out a bit to get to it, and ended up lofting it to long on who didn't have to move much, this is what Gayle has been looking to avoid

DM Bravo c Kervezee b Seelaar 30 (42m 38b 1x4 2x6) SR: 78.94

West Indies 168/2   CH Gayle 75* (99b 7x4 2x6)   PM Seelaar 6.2-1-17-1

36.2

ten Doeschate to Gayle, OUT, the batting Powerplay did you say, Gayle goes as soon as it starts, swings hard at a length ball, and swings it straight down to long off, bah, whoever named this a batting Powerplay?

CH Gayle c Kervezee b ten Doeschate 80 (136m 110b 7x4 2x6) SR: 72.72

West Indies 196/3   RR Sarwan 18* (20b 2x4 1x6)   RN ten Doeschate 6.2-0-43-1

42.1

Westdijk to Sarwan, OUT, they don't come closer than those, full on the stumps, misses the waft across the line, umpire Taufel gives him out straight away, he was hit on the toes, and was on the crease too, Sarwan finally runs out of luck, but it has been a fluent knock

RR Sarwan lbw b Westdijk 49 (55m 42b 7x4 1x6) SR: 116.66

West Indies 261/4   KA Pollard 32* (13b 3x4 2x6)   BA Westdijk 5.1-0-40-1

43.4

Seelaar to Sammy, OUT, Sammy tries to go over long off too, like Pollard, but does not connect that well, and picks out the man on the boundary neatly, maybe he could have just left it to Pollard, well he is gone now

DJG Sammy c Kervezee b Seelaar 6 (6m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

West Indies 278/5   KA Pollard 42* (16b 4x4 3x6)   PM Seelaar 8.4-1-35-2

45.4

Seelaar to Chanderpaul, OUT, Seelar has another, it is Chanders this time, looks to reverse sweep this one angling in on leg stump, that;'s what it does in the end, goes past his bat to crash in to leg stump, Seelaar roars, he is delighted

S Chanderpaul b Seelaar 4 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

West Indies 290/6   KA Pollard 48* (22b 4x4 3x6)   PM Seelaar 9.4-1-38-3

47.5

Mudassar Bukhari to Pollard, OUT, Pollard goes, finally, after lots of carnage, he looked to caused some more this time, but got too much below a length ball, and skied it high in the air, long on had settled under it, and took it cleanly in the end, 60 off 27, phew

KA Pollard c ten Doeschate b Mudassar Bukhari 60 (59m 27b 5x4 4x6) SR: 222.22

West Indies 312/7   DC Thomas 9* (8b 1x4)   Mudassar Bukhari 8.5-1-58-1

49.4

Mudassar Bukhari to Thomas, OUT, Bukhari gets one, Thomas looked to work it away from the stumps, missed and was hit on the pads, the bowler got the decision in his favour, Thomas goes for the review right away, he was hit on the knee roll but was bending down too, replays show it is taking out leg stump, umpire Saheba raises the finger again, and Thomas departs

DC Thomas lbw b Mudassar Bukhari 13 (24m 13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

West Indies 326/8   NO Miller 10* (6b 2x4)   Mudassar Bukhari 9.4-1-61-2
