    3.1 brainless from Netherlands, when they needed to rebuild. Swart bunts it and takes off tenatatively for a run, but Chatara is on to it like a flash. Sprints down the pitch collects the ball and underarms it to the stumps before Swart can turn around and head back 19/3
    0.3 big shout and gone! Only Utseya seemed to be appealing, and Myburgh seems a little surprised. The batsman definitely hit the ball, but it might have brushed pad first. Utseya comes around the stumps and gets one to straighten on about middle stump. Goes up in appeal despite a distinct woody sound, and the umpire gives him. 1/1
    1.5 and he uproots Barresi's leg stump in response. A little shuffle from the batsman, but this one comes in at him on the angle, and he lets it go between bat and pad to strike the top of the leg stump 14/2
    4.3 what drama this is! Borren throws it away now. Thats bowled flat on middle stump, and Borren tries to lift it straight but mishits it. Gets it down the throat of mid off 35/4

    13.5 Ben Cooper goes trying to force the pace. That was pushed through and straightening on the stumps as well. Cooper lifts it straight but doesn't connect well. Man at long on fence takes an easy catch 87/5

    13.3 gone! Can Netherlands take the initiative now? Masakadza charges again, but is completely done in by the lack of pace. He aims a big swing over long on, bit collects nothing but air. The ball slips under the bat and hits middle stump. 87/2
    4.3 but it doesn't prove a costly miss. Malik fires one in on the pads again, and Raza hits at it too early, sending it high into the legside. The man at deep midwicket takes a few strides in and pouches it safely. 25/1
    18.1 he's got the big wicket! van der Gugten has been terrific in this match and he's delivered the wicket of the Zimababwe captain, with some help from Borren at cover. Taylor backed away and tried to lift it over the covers, but Borren leaps and pulls it down one-handed to breathe new life into his team's hopes. 126/4
    13.5 double strike! This was full outside off stump, and perhaps asking to be hit, but Chigumbura slaps it straight to cover, who takes it above his head. Taylor becomse the key man now. It's still very much in either team's grasp. 87/3
    19.5 unnecessary from Williams, and this match is down to the last ball. It was a very,very good yorker on middle stump from Malik. Williams digs it out, but it goes straight to the bowler. The batsmen, however, have already determined that they would run, and Malik has the simplest of run outs to complete and the non-striker's end. 140/5

Match Notes

  • Sibanda shreds Zimbabwe nerves

    Zimbabwe thought they'd sealed the deal. The scores were tied and there were three deliveries remaining. Surely it could not go wrong from there? Vusi Sibanda ensured it didn't. Eventually.

  • Borren bemoans batting shortcomings

    Peter Borren, the Netherlands captain, was proud of his bowlers and fielders but said they had slipped behind when they posted what he felt was a below-par 140 after choosing to bat.

  • The anthem gaffe, and Taylor's blasts

    Plays of the Day from Zimbabwe's victory against Netherlands in Sylhet

  • Zimbabwe prevail in last-ball finish

    Zimbabwe kept themselves in contention for the World T20 main draw with a five-wicket win over Netherlands.

  • 'It's all about mental fine-tuning now' - Taylor

    With only a day available between games, Zimbabwe captain Brendon Taylor said his team would have to mentally work through where they had fallen short against Ireland, and avoid the same mistakes against Netherlands
