Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

A brutal 84 from Evin Lewis powered West Indies to 309 for 6, and that total and inclement weather combined put Netherlands out of contention for the Super Sixes.

There were two breaks for rain during the West Indies innings, which caused the match to be reduced to 48 overs a side. Netherlands were in a reasonable position in their chase of 310, when Wesley Barresi (64) and Ryan ten Doeschate (67*) in the midst of a 113-run stand for the third wicket at a run-rate of 6.78, but a string of run outs put them on the back foot.

First, Barresi was run out in the 24th over - courtesy Lewis' brilliance in the deep - and in the next over captain Peter Borren was caught short while trying to steal a second run off a free-hit. Ten Doeschate, the No. 3 batsman, was at the other end on both occasions. At the start of the 29th over, Netherlands were still in the game , with 150 needed from 20 overs and ten Doeschate at the crease on 61. Four balls into that over, however, with rain imminent, Pieter Seelaar fell to Kesrick Williams.

That was to be the last action of the match, as rain sent the players off the field once more, this time for good, with Netherlands 54 behind the DLS par score. Before Seelaar's dismissal, they had been 34 behind.

Earlier, after being sent in, West Indies started with a bang with Chris Gayle and Lewis adding 85 off 51 balls for the first wicket. Gayle was particularly severe on seamer Vivian Kingma, taking him for 38 runs off 22 balls, including five sixes. Lewis, at the other end, got stuck into Timm van der Gugten, smashing him four successive boundaries in the fourth over. The rollicking stand ended when van der Merwe pulled off a stunning catch to remove Gayle for 46 off 31 balls. Van der Merwe then slowed West Indies down with the ball, dismissing Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope. However, it was Borren who had taken the big wicket of Lewis in the 28th over. By then, he had hit six fours and four sixes.

Marlon Samuels, however, hit form to make an unbeaten 73 off 84 balls. He plundered 99 for the sixth wicket at a run-rate of 8.6 with Rovman Powell, who struck 52 off 38 balls, to haul West Indies past 300.
