DLS van Bunge    4* (8b)      S Thuraisingam    1-0-3-0
ES Szwarczynski    1* (3b)      H Osinde    1-0-5-1

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

2.2

Osinde to van Bunge, no run, short ball and well directed, van Bunge tries to cut but the ball flies through to the keeper

2.3

Osinde to van Bunge, 1 run, another short ball and this time he can get bat on ball to pick up a single to third man

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

2.5

Osinde to van Bunge, 1 run, single to third man

2.6

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

End of over 3 (6 runs) Netherlands 14/1
ES Szwarczynski    5* (6b)      H Osinde    2-0-11-1
DLS van Bunge    6* (11b)      S Thuraisingam    1-0-3-0

3.1

Thuraisingam to van Bunge, 1 run, driven to long-off for a single

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

3.4

Thuraisingam to van Bunge, no run, good yorker, just kept out by van Bunge

3.5

Thuraisingam to van Bunge, no run, movement away from the batsman this time, the ball hits the pads and goes to the fielder at short fine-leg

3.6

Thuraisingam to van Bunge, 1 run, driven to mid-on, the single was a little risky but the throw is wide of the stumps, I think he would have made it even if the fielder had hit

End of over 4 (5 runs) Netherlands 19/1
DLS van Bunge    8* (15b)      S Thuraisingam    2-0-8-0
ES Szwarczynski    8* (8b)      H Osinde    2-0-11-1

4.1

Osinde to van Bunge, 1 run, short of a length and tucked off his hip for a single to fine-leg

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

4.3

Osinde to van Bunge, no run, I think that may have been the first full ball we have seen from Osinde, the batsman was certainly waiting on the back foot and the ball goes past the edge

4.4

Osinde to van Bunge, 1 run, back to the short stuff and van Bunge cuts through point for a single- it was in the air but safe enough

4.5

Osinde to Szwarczynski, 1 leg bye

4.6

Osinde to van Bunge, no run, good ball, just short of a length and leaving te batsman, van Bunge had a flirt outside his off stump but it beats the edge

Katchay to bowl from the City End

End of over 5 (4 runs) Netherlands 23/1
DLS van Bunge    10* (19b)      H Osinde    3-0-14-1

5.1

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

5.2

Katchay to van Bunge, 1 run, short ball, very well directed hitting a fending van Bunge on the gloves- they pick up a single as the ball drops into the off 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

End of over 6 (7 runs) Netherlands 30/1
ES Szwarczynski    15* (15b 1x4)      E Katchay    1-0-7-0

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

6.3

Osinde to de Grooth, 1 run, off the mark with a drive wide of mid-off

6.4

Osinde to van Bunge, 1 wide, down the leg-side

6.4

Osinde to van Bunge, no run, fuller this time, van Bunge comes forward to defend into the leg-side

6.5

Osinde to van Bunge, 1 run, short ball and it's a good one, right at the batsmen as heplays on the back foot, the ball hits the shoulder of the bat and they get a single to fine-leg

6.6

Osinde to de Grooth, no run, short and wide but de Grooth has misses out there and the ball flies through to the keeper

End of over 7 (7 runs) Netherlands 37/2
TN de Grooth    1* (2b)      H Osinde    4-0-21-2
DLS van Bunge    12* (22b)      E Katchay    1-0-7-0

7.1

7.1

Katchay to de Grooth, FOUR, again they persist in bowling short and at the batman, this time de Grooth clears the field and gets a boundary at square leg
