Match Notes

  • South Africa crush Netherlands

    South Africa crushed Netherlands on the final day of the one-off Test at Rotterdam, to win by 159 runs with Sunette Louber returning match figures of 8 for 59 from 54.3 overs

  • Slow going at Rotterdam

    If the first day of Netherlands' first Test was dreamlike, the third day (after the second was washed out) was, at best, soporific

  • Terblanche keeps South Africa afloat

    The first day of the inaugural Test between Netherlands and South Africa was blighted by poor weather which meant that on 58.2 overs were possible

  • Test history ... but all eyes on the ODIs
