2.5 caught at mid-on, Myburgh is gone! He wanted to clear mid-on after the ball pitched on length on the stumps, he didn't get the middle of the bat and it was an easy catch for Stanikzai 17/1
    9.3 oh, that's a horrible mix up! Swart drove the full delivery through the covers towards wide long off and turned back for the second, so did Barresi but he took a couple of steps before saying no. Swart was a long way down by then and an accurate throw makes him go back 70/3
    8.2 easy peasy catch at long off! It was full outside off, Cooper lofted that straight down the ground, no idea why with the field spread out, and long off got under that easily. They check for the no ball and it's fine 66/2
    15.3 that's a bizarre way for a decision! It was a flat delivery down leg, he swept, the keeper appealed confidently for caught behind and the umpire didn't move. Then raised the finger when the appeal died down 108/7
    12.4 good reaction from Ashraf and good stumping too! Borren came outside the crease and Ashraf bowled it flat and wide, Borren swung and missed, Shahzad did the rest 92/4
    13.3 taken in the deep, Netherlands five down with van der Merwe's wicket! He played that slog-sweep against the turn for the length delivery and went down on a knee to find deep midwicket. Easy catch in the end 95/5
    14.5 the keeper takes about four seconds to stump him, and he's gone! Seelaar comes down the track and misses the flat ball that Shahzad collects just over the stumps. Seeler starts walking away from the keeper and he dislodges the ball rather easily 106/6
    19.4 slower ball outside off and it's pulled straight to midwicket for an easy catch 130/10
    16.1 the yorker does it, eight down! Superb and accurate ball in the block hole with the angle from Hassan, the bat comes down late and Bukhari is bowled 109/8
    17.3 poor delivery but what a catch at long-on! Back of the hand slower delivery that was a half-tracker way outside off, van der Gugten pulled it down the ground and Shafiqullah ran in to his left for a great catch diving forward 118/9
