9.5 another one goes and this is looking ominous for the Dutch. It was a short delivery which Reekers tried to pull, he was a little cramped and could only lob the ball to mid on for the easiest of catches 40/3
    6.5 that's the breakthrough! It wasn't the greatest delivery, in fact it was pretty short and wide. De Grooth can only pick out third man with a tp edged cut shot. Very nicely taken I might add by Cusack 30/1
    7.3 two wickets in quick succession for Ireland! It was a good length delivery which Reekers attempted to cut, again though he only succeded in finding the fielder, this time it was Wilson who took an easy catch 30/2
    11.1 another wicket falls and what a fantastic catch it was. Van Bunge attempted to drive off the back foot, the ball seemed to stop a little on the pitch as he looped the ball into the covers where Porterfield takes a sunning catch diving back 41/4
    29.2 that's the wicket that Ireland wanted! Poor shot selection that again has cost the Dutch as Szwarczynski tried to cut a ball that wasn't short enough as it clipped the off stump 104/7
    12.2 this is a disaster for the Netherlands. Another forward prob but this time he takes the edge and the ball is through to O'Brien who acepts the easy chance. We could be in for an early finish today 46/5
    28.5 that's the breakthrough! It looked as though the ball may have just run off the face as Mol tried another guide to third man. The Umpire had no doubt and that brings Mol's resilant innings to an end 104/6
    38.4 gone this time playing across the line to a ball which struck him on the full- he looked plum in front and the Umpire agrees 127/8
    47.1 So a modest target for Ireland to chase after the interval, join us after the break in around 45 minutes to see how they go. Match State: Innings Break 142/10
    41.1 disaster for the Netherlands as Smits hits straight to McCallan at short fine leg and attempts a run, Schiferli is well short after a good throw by McCallan 133/9
