Thuraisingam to Szwarczynski, 1 run

Netherlands 6/1   ES Szwarczynski 1* (3b)

2.1

Osinde to Szwarczynski, 1 run, goes for a drive outside the off stump, he gets an inside edge to pick up a single to fine-leg

2.4

Osinde to Szwarczynski, 1 run, awful drop at mid-on, it was dollied to him by a tame drive. He seemed have had it in his hands but somehow let the ball slip out- that could be costly

2.6

Osinde to Szwarczynski, 2 runs, short again and Szwarczynski cuts to third man for two runs

Netherlands 14/1   ES Szwarczynski 5* (6b)

3.2

Thuraisingam to Szwarczynski, 2 runs, full delivery but he has strayed onti the pads there and is clipped through midwicket for two runs

3.3

Thuraisingam to Szwarczynski, 1 run, attempted pull shot which he doesn't time, the ball falls into the leg-side and they get a single

Netherlands 18/1   ES Szwarczynski 8* (8b)

4.2

Osinde to Szwarczynski, 1 run, slower ball which van Bunge didn't pick, the ball went in the air but short of the fielder at cover

4.5

Osinde to Szwarczynski, 1 leg bye

Netherlands 23/1   ES Szwarczynski 9* (10b)

5.1

Katchay to Szwarczynski, 1 run, pulled behind square for a single on the leg-side

5.3

Katchay to Szwarczynski, FOUR, short again but this one is too wide and cut over point and to the boundary for four

5.4

Katchay to Szwarczynski, no run, big appeal for a catch behind but Umpire Hair is unmoved after Szwarczyski tried to pull another short ball, it looked like it hit something on it's was through to the keeper, possibly his shirt

5.5

Katchay to Szwarczynski, no run

5.6

Katchay to Szwarczynski, 1 run, short and wide but he doesn't get hold of this one, edging to third man, and again the chance is spilled as the fielder dives forward, poor cricket from Canada

Netherlands 30/1   ES Szwarczynski 15* (15b 1x4)

6.1

Osinde to Szwarczynski, FOUR, full delivery but too straight and tickled round the corner for a four to the fine-leg boundary

6.2

Osinde to Szwarczynski, OUT, gone this time and a very good catch! It was another short ball which was cut to third man- he took an excellent catch diving forward

ES Szwarczynski c Baidwan b Osinde 19 (27m 17b 2x4 0x6) SR: 111.76

Netherlands 34/2   ES Szwarczynski 19 (17b 2x4)
