1.3

Johnston to Szwarczynski, OUT, gone, big nick, bowls from slightly wide of the crease, angles it in, lands full outside off and Eric tries to drive it through the line, there might have been a bit of movement away from the bat, gets an edge and Niall O'Brien makes no mistake

1.6

Johnston to ten Doeschate, no run, bat hitting the pad there, good length and moved away, that was a beauty, drew him forward and prompted him fish for it, just went past the outside edge

Netherlands 8/1   DT Johnston 1-0-1-1
3.1

Johnston to ten Doeschate, no run, hitting the pitch and seaming away off a good length, but wide enough to be easily left alone

3.2

Johnston to ten Doeschate, no run, past the edge! Johnston went slightly fuller and drew ten Doeschate into a drive, again there was definite movement away from the bat

3.3

Johnston to ten Doeschate, no run, Johnston is testing ten Doeschate's patience outside off here, this time the batsman leaves

3.4

Johnston to ten Doeschate, no run, great line from Johnston here! He's just plugging away and letting the pitch to the rest, again he's past the edge but ten Doeschate whips the bat inside the line at the same time, so arguably another leave

3.5

Johnston to ten Doeschate, no run, much straighter, landing on middle and it's defended back down the track

3.6

Johnston to ten Doeschate, no run, ten Doeschate comes forward in watchful defence with bat and pad right together, pushing another probing delivery into the covers

Netherlands 14/2   DT Johnston 2-1-1-1
5.1

Johnston to ten Doeschate, no run, Johnston continues to send them down on off, ten Doeschate patiently leaves alone

5.2

Johnston to ten Doeschate, FOUR, lifted to wide midwicket! Johnston aimed at middle and off and ten Doeschate walked across his stumps, getting inside the line and flicking with plenty of bottom hand to find the boundary

5.3

Johnston to ten Doeschate, no run, Johnston re-adjusts his line, ten Doeschate taps down to gully

5.4

Johnston to ten Doeschate, no run, again ten Doeschate walks across to off, trying to upset the bowler's line, but Johnston follows him and the shot is stopped at cover point

5.5

Johnston to ten Doeschate, FOUR, too full, ten Doeschate steps forward and drives hard into the ground, the ball bounces up and over a diving cover fielder

5.6

Johnston to ten Doeschate, 1 run, aggressive batting! ten Doeschate walks across to off and tries to muscle a length delivery through the leg side ... not much timing in the shot, however, so just the one

Netherlands 29/2   DT Johnston 3-1-10-1
7.1

Johnston to Kervezee, FOUR, four runs, but that is streaky batting! Kervezee is turned inside-out by the away movement, he was looking to flick to leg but the ball takes a thick edge and loops down to third man

7.2

Johnston to Kervezee, no run, he's less expansive in the shot this time, stepping forward to defend cautiously to leg

7.3

Johnston to Kervezee, no run, classic line and length stuff from Johnston, Kervezee defends

7.4

Johnston to Kervezee, no run, fuller, this time the ball wobbles a touch in the air as Kervezee leans into a drive, a thick inside edge ricochets into the pad

7.5

Johnston to Kervezee, no run, again Johnston attacks the stumps, straighter this time and Kervezee drives to mid-on

7.6

Johnston to Kervezee, no run, driven on the other side of the wicket this time, but straight to mid-off

Netherlands 40/2   DT Johnston 4-1-14-1
9.1

Johnston to Kervezee, 1 run, good-looking drive to a half-volley, but he can't quite beat the field ... so just the one

9.2

Johnston to ten Doeschate, no run, a touch of seam movement in to the batsman, who defends with bat and pad right together. Half an appeal, but that was bat first

9.3

Johnston to ten Doeschate, FOUR, Ryan's on fire! Too full from Johnston and very wide too, the batsman leans into a cracking square drive, slicing it past a leaping point fielder. He hit that really hard

9.4

Johnston to ten Doeschate, no run, good batting, this wasn't there to be hit, nibbling away outside off and ten Doeschate leaves alone

9.5

Johnston to ten Doeschate, no run, another good ball, and patient stuff from ten Doeschate who leaves once again

9.6

Johnston to ten Doeschate, no run, well, he's tried to whip the bat inside the line so he can call this one a 'leave' but ten Doeschate was beaten by the away movement before he had moved his bat. This is an enthralling battle, ten Doeschate v Ireland

Netherlands 53/2   DT Johnston 5-1-19-1

Netherlands 178/4   DT Johnston 6-1-24-1

34.2

Johnston to ten Doeschate, 1 run, meaty delivery on middle and leg, clipped off the pads towards deep square leg for a single

34.3

Netherlands 187/4   DT Johnston 7-1-28-1
43.1

Johnston to Borren, 2 runs, a couple wide of long-on, fullish, gets forward and chips it betweeb long-on and deep midwicket

43.2

Johnston to Borren, no run, big appeal for lbw, but they belatedly refer it when the umpire turns it down, the offcutter and he swung at it across the line, struck on the pads but it seemed as if he was struck outside the line, the replays confirm that. It's an on-field call. Doctrove got it right

43.3

Johnston to Borren, no run, comes down the track and converts it into a low full toss, driven straight to extra cover

43.4

Johnston to Borren, FOUR, slower one and it's a safe shot in the end even though he didn't connect well, pitched up and he cleared the mid-off fielder, not the best of timing but had enough legs to take it to the ropes

43.5

Johnston to Borren, 1 run, comfortable single to the extra-cover fielder who's at the edge of the circle

43.6

Johnston to Buurman, no run, slower one bowled full on the off, pushed towards extra cover

Johnston to Buurman, no run, on the pads and he misses out, tries to flick it fine but doesn;t connect

45.6

Johnston to Buurman, no run, slower one, didn't pick it, had a wild swing, missed, Nial O'Brien collected and took off the bails but Buurman was still in. The batsman appeared to slip and O'Brien took off the stumps but Buurman held his balance
