Well bowled Panchal in his debut match. So, that's the end of this fantastic match played equally well by both sides. Major contributors for Netherlands were, Kervezee, Borren as well as debutants, Bukhari and Panchal. For Canada, Bhatti and Osinde bowled very well, but Bhatti got unlucky to get hurt while batting and couldn't bowl in Netherlands second innings. Trevin, Ali, skipper Bagai and Dhaniram, all played very well and tried hard to see their country through. Overall, it was a fantastic game played between two developing sides in international cricket. Man of the Match is awarded to Peter Borren, who deserves it more than anyone else. Thanks for being with us for the last four days and we hope that you enjoyed the coverage. Until next time - which will be the first ODI between these two sides on Tuesday, July 3rd - it's goodbye from Sandeep Harnal.

Panchal to Bhatti, OUT, around his legs, that's the end for Canada. Well done Netherlands, well fought victory for them.
