0.2

Rankin to Barresi, 2 runs, dropped, should have been taken, short of a good length, pushes at it from the crease, flew off the outside edge and second slip, Kevin O'Brien's standing there, should have clasped it, timed his jump well but couldn't hold on, immediately apologises to the bowler.

0.3

Rankin to Barresi, no run, Barresi's taking some hits, short on middle, nips back in and catches him on the rib

0.6

Rankin to Barresi, no run, appeal for a catch, short of a good length on the off, gets on the back foot and defends inside the line to that one, there was a sound as it went past the bat towards the keeper, big appeal from the Irish but the umpire declares it Not Out.

Netherlands 7/0   W Barresi 2* (5b)

Stirling to Barresi, OUT, Review: Appeal for lbw, it's bowled on a good length, he walks across to turn it square, turns in, he misses, and is caught in front. Doctrove's the umpire, he raises his finger immediately. Barresi wants a review, but he's gonna have to go. That was out. Landed in line, struck him in line and was hitting middle and off.

W Barresi lbw b Stirling 44 (61m 49b 4x4 2x6) SR: 89.79

Netherlands 113/4   W Barresi 44 (49b 4x4 2x6)
