Netherlands 100/3   TLW Cooper 29* (46b 2x4)
29.1

Nehra to Cooper, OUT, Nehra's struck immediately. He's got this oldish ball to nip away from a full length. Was that reverse swing or a good old offcutter? In any case, it was Nehra at his crafty best. Replays indicate it was an offcutter. He bustles in from over the wicket, lands it full and outside off, inviting the drive and then moving off away towards the off side. The deviation is enough to induce an outside edge as Cooper goes for the big cover drive. Dhoni holds the low catch easily. Netherlands are fumbling here.

TLW Cooper c †Dhoni b Nehra 29 (52m 47b 2x4 0x6) SR: 61.70

Netherlands 100/4   TLW Cooper 29 (47b 2x4)
