Ireland 296 for 4 (Botha 152*, Poynter 36*) v Netherlands
Only 19 overs were possible on the second day in Rotterdam, but there was enough time for Andre Botha to progress from his overnight 103 to 152, and Ireland went to stumps on 296 for 4.
Like yesterday, Botha was quick to punish anything short against an inconsistent Netherlands attack. Partnered by Andrew Poynter, Botha's 150 came from 190 balls and, by the close, the pair's partnership had extended to 112. In doing so, Botha became only the fourth batsman to reach 1000 runs in the Intercontinental Cup.
