ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 25th match, Group B

India v Netherlands

India won by 5 wickets (with 81 balls remaining)

29.2

Nehra to Zuiderent, no run, again, Nehra gets it to shape away, Zuiderant is crease-bound and poking at it in French cricket style. Miss

29.3

Nehra to Zuiderent, no run, again, Nehra is bowling diagonals across the pitch and it is not easy at the best of times, leave alone when you are new at the crease.

29.4

Nehra to Zuiderent, no run, a minor victory for Zuiderant who gets bat on it, and pokes it to the off side

29.5

Nehra to Zuiderent, no run, fuller length this time, Zuiderant opens the face and dabs it towards point

29.6

Nehra to Zuiderent, no run, another lively offcutter to end the over, moves away prodigiously from leg to off and Zuiderant does well not to get a leading edge as he plays the flick a touch too early

Netherlands 100/4   B Zuiderent 0* (5b)

30.6

Khan to Zuiderent, OUT, Zaheer has nailed him, but Zuiderant has reviewed it. Sleight of hand from Zaheer, he's got the ball to do everything except turn back towards him. He runs in with the ball hidden in his hands, not giving away how he's holding it. This one lands back of a length and curls into Zuiderant, who has thrust his front pad forward and in front of the stumps. Danger signs. The ball comes in enough to miss the bat that was hanging in hope next to the pad. Replays vindicate Steve Davis. The seamers have come into their own with the old ball. Maybe India should just open with spinners and use the fast bowlers after 25 overs.

B Zuiderent lbw b Khan 0 (10m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Netherlands 101/5   B Zuiderent 0 (6b)
