    4.1 length ball, pulled, missed and it's bowled him! Just clipping the off bail on the way through. Hales struggling in tougher batting conditions, trying to force the pace - the length was not there to pull - and has fallen 19/2
    2.6 touch fuller and Lumb drives in the air and picks out cover a similar dismissal to the South Africa game, not picking the gap on the off side. It was timed well but at shoulder height and presented an easy catch 18/1
    8.1 full and wide of off stump, Moeen drives at it and slaps it to cover! Another one down and England are in trouble here. A slow offcutter from Borren, Moeen has greedily seen some width to work with, gone for a big drive and got it off the toe of the bat straight to the fielder 32/4
    5.5 this is pushed wider of off stump and Morgan drives off a good length and edges to slip! England lose a third here! So disciplined outside off stump so far but Netherlands have probed that line and here got their rewards. The slip was pushed wider to about a third slip and he pouched an easy chance at thigh height! Game on 26/3
    9.6 short ball, Buttler swings into the deep, again mistimes the stroke and picks out deep midwicket another big strike for Netherlands. Slower ball out of the back of the hand, Buttler was aiming big to the leg side and simply got it nowhere near the meat of the bat, pretty mindless batting really 42/5
    15.1 length ball swung over the leg side, deep midwicket is right back on the rope and takes the catch!! Huge wicket and surely England are dead and buried now! The catch taken inches from the rope, Seelaar holds on solidly and the Netherlands are dancing about, that could well be the game 74/7
    11.4 slower ball ends up a full toss, he pulls it out to deep square leg, for some reason they're coming back for second and Bresnan is miles out!! Oh my word what absolute carnage! Bopara was scooting back for the second and would have got home easily but Bresnan was so slow and ended up yards short of his ground 52/6
    15.5 full length outside off stump, Jordan swings it down the ground but gets nowhere near enough bat on it, long-off is running in, dives forward and takes the catch! Another piece of top fielding from the Dutch and this game is all but theirs now! Once again, an England batsman is not able to time the ball properly in this innings 76/8
    17.2 length ball wide of off stump, Broad aims a swing leg side and nicks it through to the keeper! England's last faint hope walks off. He had to try something, aimed a mighty whack to leg, got there too soon and feathered an edge behind 86/9

    17.4 swing over the off side, it loops just over cover and Tredwell survives but oh my word there's a mix up mid-pitch and there's a run out!! And that will finish things off!!! What a calamitous way to end and it sums England's batting performance up, Parry totally stranded in the middle of the wicket 88/10
