Scorecard

A sound bowling effort by Matthew Parker and Majid Haq helped Scotland restrict Netherlands to a modest 210 on the opening day at Deventer. Parker, the right-arm fast bowler, accounted for the top order while Haq, the offspinner, took three lower order wickets. Wilfred Diepeveen showed some resistance with an unbeaten 72 but he was the only Netherlands player to pass fifty.

Parker began by removing the openers with the score on 32. Steven de Bruin and Wesley Barresi added 41 for the third wicket, but that was the best stand the top order could manage. Haq dismissed de Bruin, before Parker got rid of the captain Peter Borren. Haq chipped away at the lower order and Netherlands were struggling, having lost nine for 146. However, a last-wicket stand of 64 added some respectability to the score. Berend Westdijk joined Diepeveen, and the latter took charge with a half-century. He remained unbeaten on 72, hitting five fours. Parker finished with 4 for 63 while Haq took 3 for 45. Scotland lost the early wicket of Douglas Lockhart for 5 before stumps.
