John Blain922252.44432040
0.1 to DJ Reekers, followed up with a wide full ball, Reekers couldn't resist the drive but could only find backward point who took an easy catch. Terrible start again for The Netherlands as Reekers is goes for a Golden Duck!. 1/1
4.2 to TN de Grooth, gone! just short of a length and seaming back in to catch a fine inside edge through to Smith, de Grooth didn't walk but the Umpire had no doubt. 13/2
4.3 to RN ten Doeschate, disaster at the top of the order again for the Netherlands and it's the prize wicket of ten Doeschate. A short of a length delivery whch he tried to pull over midwicket, he didn't get hold of it and Hamilton took an easy catch at square leg. 13/3
34.5 to Mudassar Bukhari, what a catch to get rid of Bukhari! A short ball was edged behind where Watson dived to his right to take a fantastic one-handed catch, supurb effort!. 105/8
38.1 to ES Szwarczynski, that's the big wicket and another good catch at first slip by Watson, it was on a good length and he just pushed at it. This looks bleak now for The Netherlands. 116/9
Dewald Nel9.203814.07364000
39.2 to PM Seelaar, again he plays back to a full delivery but this time he loses his off stump to bring a close to the innings. 117/10
Gordon Drummond511503.00240110
Richie Berrington911611.77431000
24.6 to DLS van Bunge, very soft dismissal, it was a ball just short of a length which he tried to force past the bowler, it may have just stopped on him a little as he popped an easy return catch to Berrington. Very good partnership for The Netherlands. 84/4
Glenn Rogers712423.42313001
25.6 to PW Borren, another wicket goes- again they have lost wickets in quick succession. Borren attempted a cut shot but it was probably roo full and he gets a edge onto his stumps. 85/5
31.1 to HJC Mol, he persists with the tactic of coming down the wicket and it has cost him. Mol was looking to drive over mid on but he was beaten in the flight and was stranded mid-pitch as Smith flicked off the bails. Pretty unnecessary shot in the situation. 97/6

13.3 to GM Hamilton, gone this time, driving at a ball that was on a good length he gets an edge to Reekers at first slip who takes a good catch low down. 66/1
15.3 to MQ Sheikh, another wicket for ten Doeschate as Sheikh tries to turn a full ball into the leg side, Umpire Bowden raised the dreaded crooked finger with little hesitation. 71/2
Pieter Seelaar5.203125.81224110
16.4 to CJO Smith, another one goes and The Netherlands are back in the hunt. Smith tried to sweep again but a top edge went straight up in the air and Seelaar took the catch off his own bowling. 78/3
16.6 to DF Watts, could we have one of the great comebacks here, another wicket for the Dutch, Watts beaten by a full ball that struck him on the full. He looked disappointed by the decision but it looked pretty straight. 78/4
