ICC World Cup - 19th match, Group A

Netherlands v Scotland

Netherlands won by 8 wickets (with 157 balls remaining)

0.2

Stelling to Poonia, OUT, Stelling strikes, the ball was almost identical to the first only a little closer to the batsman, it pitched around off stump and moved away from Poonia, forcing him to fend at it, the ball kissed the outside edge and Smits took an easy catch

NS Poonia c †Smits b Stelling 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Scotland 0/1   RM Haq 0* (0b)   WF Stelling 0.2-0-0-1

3.2

Reekers to Haq, OUT, and the stump-to-stump line works! Reekers bowls one dead straight and the ball breaches Haq's defences, he tried to play across the line to that one and heard the sound of timber moments after he missed, van Bunge will be a relieved man

RM Haq b Reekers 6 (10m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Scotland 9/2   RR Watson 1* (4b)   DJ Reekers 1.2-0-5-1

6.2

Stelling to Hamilton, OUT, Stelling has his second, Hamilton moves across to one that pitches on middle and swings towards leg stump, he misses the flick and is hit just below the knee roll, Asoka de Silva says that was going to hit and Hamilton isn't happy, he's got to go though and replays show the ball hitting leg

GM Hamilton lbw b Stelling 4 (10m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.76

Scotland 15/3   RR Watson 1* (9b)   WF Stelling 3.2-0-4-2

6.3

Stelling to Brown, OUT, Stelling is on a hat-trick! Stelling pitches that on off and middle and the ball angles into the right-hander, Brown gets half forward and the ball hits him low on the pad in front of middle, easy decision for de Silva to make

DR Brown lbw b Stelling 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Scotland 15/4   RR Watson 1* (9b)   WF Stelling 3.3-0-4-3

13.4

de Leede to Watson, OUT, de Leede takes a blinder! He bowled that full to Watson who absolutely hammered the straight drive back at de Leede at head height, de Leede gets his hands up in time, parries the ball, and takes it on the second attempt, brilliant reflexes

RR Watson c & b de Leede 16 (52m 37b 3x4 0x6) SR: 43.24

Scotland 39/5   NFI McCallum 5* (16b)   TBM de Leede 0.4-0-1-1

20.4

Jonkman to Smith, OUT, timber! Jonkman pitches one just outside off stump and nips it back into Smith who thrusts his bat out, the ball takes the inside edge and hits the top of leg stump

CJO Smith b Jonkman 19 (30m 23b 4x4 0x6) SR: 82.60

Scotland 77/6   NFI McCallum 20* (35b 2x4 1x6)   MBS Jonkman 2.4-0-13-1

22.3

Jonkman to McCallum, OUT, caught at gully! Jonkman bowls it wide outside off stump again and McCallum cuts hard, he doesn't keep it down and hits it straight to Stelling who takes the catch at stomach height

NFI McCallum c Stelling b Jonkman 24 (68m 43b 3x4 1x6) SR: 55.81

Scotland 83/7   CM Wright 1* (3b)   MBS Jonkman 3.3-1-15-2

23.4

Mohammad Kashif to Wright, OUT, Kashif gets into the act! He bowls one quicker and wider outside off stump, Wright gives him the charge and tries to drive, he isn't anywhere near the pitch of the ball and gets beaten, Smits whips off the bails in a trice

CM Wright st †Smits b Mohammad Kashif 1 (12m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Scotland 83/8   JAR Blain 0* (3b)   Mohammad Kashif 1.4-0-4-1

31.1

Mohammad Kashif to Rogers, OUT, edged and gone! The quicker one lands short and spins in, Rogers stands deep in his crease and tickles at it, and Smits snaps up the thin edge!

GA Rogers c †Smits b Mohammad Kashif 26 (27m 30b 5x4 0x6) SR: 86.66

Scotland 117/9   JAR Blain 6* (18b)   Mohammad Kashif 5.1-2-14-2

34.1

van Bunge to Hoffmann, OUT, It's all over. Scotland have folded up cheaply. A flighted delivery on the middle and off stump line produced a lofted drive but he was beaten in the flight and the dip. Ended up ballooning it towards mid-off and he is a goner.

PJC Hoffmann c ten Doeschate b van Bunge 7 (13m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Scotland 136/10   JAR Blain 18* (28b 1x4 1x6)   DLS van Bunge 1.1-0-4-1
