South Africa survive a mighty scare here.

Imran Tahir is the Man of the Match: "Really pleased, good team effort. We believed that we could have won this game but it wasn't an easy one. I just tried to bowl wicket to wicket."

Borren: "We obviously let this one go. We played across the line to Tahir. It's a real shame. They got off to a flying start and we did well to pull them back. Malik is a fantastic bowler and credit to him. I have to take the responsibility too with my dismissal tonight. I'm miffed with the fact that we didn't get over the line. After our last game I'm glad we stepped up better tonight."

Faf: "I think we are making it hard for ourselves. It's a great sign when your side is not playing 100% and still gets over the line. Credit to Netherlands for some very good bowling. Tahir and Steyn were outstanding. Credit to young Hendricks for bowling well under pressure. Credit to Netherlands as they played very good cricket for 70% of the game."

It took a lot for Borren to come out there and speak barely minutes after the game ended. He wasn't joking when he said he was "miffed." In the final analysis you would say that Netherlands lost this game, rather than SA winning it.

That's it from us as far as this match goes. The toss for England v Sri Lanka is underway in a few minutes. Thanks for your company. Cheers!

Hendricks to van der Gugten, OUT, South Africa get over the line with the skin of their teeth! Hendricks comes round the wicket and fires in a short ball, van der Gugten arches backwards and risky playing at it, looks to carve this down to third man but gets a thin edge, de Kock knows it and Steve Davis' finger was up quickly

T van der Gugten c †de Kock b Hendricks 8 (13m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Tsotsobe to van der Gugten, 2 runs, and Steyn's dropped it! It's not over yet, he needlessly looked to chip this one over the infield, this was in the air for a while, Steyn covered plenty of ground running forward from deep midwicket but spilled it on the dive

Tsotsobe to Mudassar Bukhari, OUT, was that really necessary! The batsman needn't have looked to go over the top with the fielder pushed back, this was short and he was down the track and looked to slap this one over long-on, miscued and Miller took it easily

Mudassar Bukhari c Miller b Tsotsobe 11 (23m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 91.66

Tsotsobe to Mudassar Bukhari, 1 run, OUT, the pressure getting to the Netherlands again! Bukhari pulled this one to wide long-on, van Beek wanted the second but bukhari wasn't interested, van Beek was more than half way down the track but it was too late

LV van Beek run out (Miller/†de Kock) 1 (12m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00
