ICC World Twenty20 - 9th match, Group B

Netherlands v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 82 runs

Hi there. Welcome to Netherlands v Pakistan game.

Toss: Pakistan have chosen to bat. They need to win by 25 runs to go through.

Younis: "It looks a hard pitch. If we can score 180-190, it will be hard for them."

Smits: "We will take the confidence out of our previous game. We saw Pakistan play on Sunday. We are confident."

Jeremy Coney says the pitch is well grassed, slightly damp. He reckons there should be good pace and bounce.

Bishop and Co. get confused, Ponting and Co. get packing. Off the Record goes behind the scenes.

George Binoy decides against spitting on London public-transport staffers, and watches Dhoni check out some new bats.

Australia were dull and workmanlike instead of being flashily brilliant. Andrew Hughes reflects on their exit.

Pakistan : 1 Salman Butt, 2 Kamran Akmal, 3 Shoaib Malik, 4 Younis Khan (capt), 5 Misbah-ul-Haq, 6 Shahid Afridi, 7 Fawad Alam, 8 Sohail Tanvir, 9 Umar Gul, 10 Mohammad Aamer, 11 Saeed Ajmal

Netherlands: 1 Jeroen Smits, 2 Alexi Kervezee, 3 Darron Reekers, 4 Bas Zudierent, 5 Tom de Groot, 6 Ryan ten Doeschate, 7 Peter Borren, 8 Dann van Bunge, 9 Pieter Seelar, 10 Dirk Nannes, 11 Edgar Schiferli

Dann sends in the first feedback of the day: "Fair enough Pakistan prefer batting first. They didn't chase well last time. However. Given they need to win by 25+runs, or they need to successfully chase within 17ovs, I am surprised they chose to bat. They need to bowl well, and knowing your target for 17ovs must be "easier" than not knowing what target you need to set. If they lose early wickets trying prematurely to up the pace, and therefore end up losing, I will chalk this down as an own goal."

Andrew McGlashan, our man at the ground, says: "Ground is probably about half full, but I'm sure supporters from both sides will make plenty of noise when the action starts."

As the Anthems play out, Carl is on something it seems: "Hi there, slight tangent already but my friend tells me that there is an international ground in Holland with a tree on the pitch. Does anyone know if this is true please?If so what happens if you hit the tree? Is it an unfair advantage to Pakistan that there is no tree on the pitch?" Too much Durban Poison Carl?!

Sheri: "very surprised to see salman but again in the team they should beter with ahmed shezad. Butt is not good in field and also sloopy in field. It's better if they chose to field first."

Zee: "I completely agree with dann. Younus should have chose to bowl first in this way they have a target and they can adjust their batting line up according to that. Other thing is that they again chose salman butt as a operner holland can easily use the same tactics which england did against him.... bad choice."

Hassan: "Dann, I think Pakistan panics chasing and it is a good choice to bat first and put up a good total. Chasing in a T20 game has tremendous pressure and every dot ball adds more to it.
