  • Netherlands scratch away seven-year itch

    Netherlands had gone through 16 matches without winning in four-day cricket. That changed when they beat Scotland by 44 runs to go to the top of the Intercontinental Cup table

  • Borren's career-best stuns Scotland

    An inspired bowling spell of 4 for 1 from captain Peter Borren propelled Netherlands to a dramatic 44-run win over Scotland on the final day of the Intercontinental Cup match at Voorburg Cricket Club

  • Scotland need 149 runs to win on final day

    A pair of fighting lower-order partnerships in the first innings and a tight bowling performance left Scotland with a target of 201 for a win in the Intercontinental Cup match at the Voorburg Cricket Club

  • Van der Merwe finding his feet with Netherlands

    Rather than looking like a slap-bang T20 dasher, van der Merwe's polished technique vindicated Netherlands management's decision to send him in at No. 4.

  • Scotland capitulate after Netherlands' 210

    Netherlands finished day two of the Intercontinental Cup match 175 runs ahead after reducing Scotland to 35 for 6 in the evening session
