India won by 5 wickets (with 81 balls remaining)
9 March 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)
42.5

Chawla to Borren, SIX, Borren has dumped Chawla over long on. Such a free-spirited slog, he just seemed to enjoy lacing into the length ball. Turning away from off and middle, Borren gets the front foot across and thwacks it with a crossed bat over the straight field. As Ravi Shastri would say, "That went, many a mile."

Netherlands 158/8   PW Borren 29* (29b 3x4 1x6)   PP Chawla 9.5-0-41-2
42.6

Chawla to Borren, SIX, another six here. Borrn has ruined Chawla's figures by taking 17 off the final over. This was more of a damage control ball. Flat and full on middle and leg, Borren again swept with power, getting the shot to fly away over midwicket. Fiercely powerful hit.

Netherlands 164/8   PW Borren 35* (30b 3x4 2x6)   PP Chawla 10-0-47-2
43.5

Nehra to Mudassar Bukhari, SIX, whoa, another six. Netherlands are leaving India oranje-faced with a big sting in the tail. Nehra is still looking for the tight yorker. It doesn't require much to go wrong, for that to end up as a half-volley on the pads. Bukhari got the front foot inside the line and tonked it wildly over long on. Part golf, past cricket.

Netherlands 172/8   Mudassar Bukhari 8* (6b 1x6)   A Nehra 4.5-1-18-1
45.5

Harbhajan Singh to Mudassar Bukhari, SIX, India leaking runs like a metro-water lorry in Chennai. Fires it full on leg stump, Bukhari's footwork is good enough to get under it and swing it over midwicket. The crowd is caught between anxiety and cheer.

Netherlands 188/8   Mudassar Bukhari 21* (14b 1x4 2x6)   Harbhajan Singh 9.5-0-30-0
