Tom de Grooth was named Man-of-the-Match, and that just about wraps up our coverage. If you've missed anything, check the full scorecard and the bulletin. I'm Will Luke and I desperately need a lie down. Join us tomorrow for more live coverage of the World Twenty20. Until then, let's bask in wonder at the great game of cricket - goodnight.

Jeroen Smits: "No. It's unbelievable. This is something special. I think I can sleep well tonight. After the first ten overs we fought back quite well. We thought we were in control [of the chase] from the start, so we felt we were in control. We did well. I'm sure [we'll party tonight]."

Paul Collingwood: "Give Holland a lot of credit. They knocked off a total that we thought was enough. They played exceptionally well; we expected to win but they put a major performance in. I still think we could have defended a total like that, but unfortunately they were better on the day."

What an incredible win and match. England are devastated. "A roar of delight in the usually passive press box!" Martin notes. Netherlands' bowling was the first indication that they were up for this match, restricting England to just 73 in their last ten overs. It was simply not enough for England, and Netherlands' batsmen went hell for leather with the bat. To a man the Dutch head off to the Mound Stand to acknowledge their fans - what a moment this is for Netherlands, indeed for Associate cricket as a whole. Minnows they may be, but for now they can bask in their status as giant killers. As my colleague Travis Basevi says, "England are facing elimination from the tournament within 2 days of it beginning. Makes the 99 World Cup look like an unmitigated success." Ryan ten Doeschate played with great calmness and tenacity, but Tom de Grooth really impressed, playing with such audacity that England were left looking a little clueless. And England simply crumbled under pressure; their fielding, in particular, was not up to scratch and they missed at least four run-out chances. Netherlands deserve this win - maybe the tournament does, too. What a start we've had!

Broad to Schiferli, 2 runs, goes for a club, Broad again fields - they run, and Broad has all three stumps as he collects it in his follow through. But he misses, and they run an overthrow. They're through and Netherlands have scored a brilliantly, outstanding upset here for the first match at Lord's!

Broad around the wicket. Remember: 2 needed from 1

Just two runs needed ... off one ball! Hundreds of emails flying in - no time to read them I'm afraid, but thanks anyway. Foster's going to stand up to the stumps and Anderson's giving Broad advice. Foster's actually going back now.

19.5
1
Broad to ten Doeschate, 1 run, another smash, but he picks out mid-on! Only a single. Good grief, this is so tense

Schiferli injured himself during that run-out attempt with Broad. Damaged shoulder, by the looks of it. This is as mad as a box of frogs

19.4
0
Broad to Schiferli, 1 bye, he plays and misses, the ball flies through to keeper who is standing back - and they run a bye!

This is unbelievably, sickeningly tense. 4 from 3

19.3
1
Broad to ten Doeschate, 1 run, Broad's dropped a wellied smash to a full toss! High above his head and it took a while to reach him

Boos around the ground, but I'm afraid that's the right decision. Anyway - move on. Here we go, chaps. 5 runs from 4 balls

19.2
1
Broad to Schiferli, 1 run, tries to smack it out to cover but can't time it. Broad fields and does a Jonty Rhodes, diving onto the stumps. But as his right hand (holding the ball) hits the turf, he releases the ball - it's his hand which smashes the bails! Not out

They're going to run whatever happens

6 from 5

19.1
1
Broad to ten Doeschate, 1 run, cracked out to the off side, Broad fields and should run him out - but misses! That's the fourth run-out opportunity they've missed tonight alone

England cannot just protect runs - they must aim for wickets.

Well, what an opening match we've had, ladies and gents. It's all coming down to the last over. Seven to win for Netherlands! Who'd have predicted this? Not I, sir. Collingwood's chatting to Broad and Anderson, and it'll be Broad going around the wicket
