Commentator: Devashish Fuloria

Netherlands join Ireland at the top of the table. We will be back tomorrow with the Group A matches. Till then, ciao ciao

Peter Borren: "We did struggle in manageable chases in warm-ups, and we wanted to get over this one. We slowed down a bit towards the end and but I am happy to get over the line. Myburgh set things up brilliantly and Tom Cooper was superb. I would have settled for chasing 165-170 and I think we dragged them back well."

Khurram Khan: "The way we started and the way we were playing, I thought 175 was on. But three wickets in the 1516th over changed the game and they bowled and fielded well. We dropped so many catches and that probably made the difference in the end."

Tom Cooper is the Man of the Match. He says, "It's a good all-round effort by the boys. We missed out on a couple of opportunities during the practice games, but we came back well. The pitch was really nice, and the runs came quite nicely. (On his bowling) I was just trying to guess what they were looking to do. It's a bit hit an miss as well. Another day I could have gone for more."

Netherlands take this by six wickets. Their batting, which was a concern before the game, proved to be too powerful for UAE, who didn't help themselves by spilling a number of chances. The top order led by Stephen Myburgh made useful contributions and even though Netherlands slowed down towards the end, that initial impetus meant they were never in any trouble. Lots of areas to work on for UAE
