20.2 to SA Engelbrecht, straight down Jansen's throat! Another short delivery, this time on leg stump. Engelbrecht seems to get inside the line early enough and gets a decent chunk of it. The only problem, though, is that he picks out Jansen at fine leg to absolute perfection. A few yards either side, and it might have been a flat six. Netherlands five down now!. 82/5
39.5 to RE van der Merwe, the party is over. Slower bouncer on middle, Roelof had already backed away but in doing so, gave enough for the bowler to follow him, he's cramped for room as he tries to ramp it up. Neither has room nor the pace and ends up lobbing it to short third. Excellent hand from one of cricket's ultimate fighters.. 204/8
7.1 to MP O'Dowd, this is an absolute peach! Has Max nibbling at a full delivery that slants across and misses the edge by a whisker. Or has it? South Africa have opted to review. They think there was a nick. Max O'Dowd seems confident there wasn't. But Temba & de Kock have been proved right. They were confident they heard something and snicko tells us there as a thin spike.. 24/2
26.6 to AT Nidamanuru, huge appeal, and given! Nidamanuru reviews, though! Excellent yorker on leg stump that seems to shape in late. Nidamanuru is slightly late on the stroke and jams his bat into the turf, rather than getting a scratch on the ball. Gets thumped on the back pad, in front of leg stump, and this could be trouble for the Dutch batter. There are lots of spikes on UltraEdge because the ball hit the ground at perhaps the same time as the ball was next to the bat. The third umpire takes multiple looks at it before reckoning that the ball missed the bat completely. Ball Tracking returns with three reds, and Nidamanuru has to go!. 112/6
6.1 to Vikramjit Singh, strikes first ball and it's an outstanding catch to bring South Africa their first. Vikramjit looks to pull but is cramped for room, the ball flies off the top edge and Henrich Klassen takes an excellent catch running back from slip. He anticipated the ball nice and early, just around the time the ball caught the top edge, ran back and put in a dive to get to the ball nice and easy.. 22/1
10.5 to BFW de Leede, appeal for lbw and no sooner that it's turned down, Rabada looks to de Kock and signals height may have been in question. They review nonetheless. And it's an excellent review. de leede is beaten by the nip-backer off a length from outside off and is hit below the knee roll. Ball tracking says this would've crashed into top of middle.. 40/3
15.1 to CN Ackermann, dragged on! Back of a length delivery in that probing corridor outside off. Ackermann feels the pinch of the dot balls and tries to manufacture something. Throws his hands at it but the ball is too close to be playing the cut. Gets a thickish inside edge that cannons into the stumps, and the Dutch are reeling now!. 50/4
33.5 to LV van Beek, lovely bowling, and excellent keeping! Tossed up generously on a length on off. The ball drops on van Beek late and he has to go looking for it, way in front of his pad. Over-balances in that process and can do nothing as the ball rips past the outside edge. de Kock gathers cleanly and whips off the bails in a flash, with van Beek's back foot well outside the crease. South Africa keep chipping away!. 140/7

Fall of wickets: 1-36 (Quinton de Kock, 7.6 ov), 2-39 (Temba Bavuma, 9.1 ov), 3-42 (Aiden Markram, 10.2 ov), 4-44 (Rassie van der Dussen, 11.2 ov), 5-89 (Heinrich Klaasen, 18.5 ov), 6-109 (Marco Jansen, 24.6 ov), 7-145 (David Miller, 30.6 ov), 8-147 (Gerald Coetzee, 33.1 ov), 9-166 (Kagiso Rabada, 35.1 ov), 10-207 (Keshav Maharaj, 42.5 ov) • DRS
18.5 to H Klaasen, this is a big moment in the game, potentially game changing! Logan has his man and it's with an absolute long hop that Klaasen would be livid with. Short ball, angling down leg, Klassen uses the pace to help it on its way, except he's found Vikramjit Singh at fine leg and he barely had to move.. 89/5
30.6 to DA Miller, van Beek gets Miller! Catch him if you can! Is that the game now?! Off-pace, and on a back of a length on off. Miller tries to smash it into the mountains but lose his shape a touch. Swings too early and the ball clips the top of off stump. Absolute delirium among those with an affiliation to Dutch cricket. Despair for South Africa!. 145/7
42.5 to KA Maharaj, what a moment for the Netherlands! Logan van Beek, one of the inspirational men instrumental in Netherlands getting here to the World Cup, seals a famous, famous win. Scott Edwards, captain fantastic, takes the catch. What a moment in their history. Maharaj backs away to scythe this through the off side but the ball gets big on him and flies off the edge as Edwards takes an excellent catch.. 207/10
7.6 to Q de Kock, de Kock falls! Netherlands get the breakthrough they were after! Another full and flat delivery on leg stump. de Kock tries to paddle it fine again but this time, the ball just seems to stick a little. Clips the glove and then the shoulder as he swipes at it, and lobs up for Edwards to complete the catch. Right then.... 36/1
10.2 to AK Markram, what is happening here? Markram has been cleaned up by a skidder! Van Meekeren is pumped and why not? This is short of a length, deadly accurate, the ball nips back in just a wee bit and skids through Markram's defence. His exaggerated movement after being castled gave you the impression that this kept low. Whatever it is, Netherlands believe.. 42/3
24.6 to M Jansen, cleans him up! Stumps everywhere! Back of a length delivery, very similar to the ball that got Markram out. This one is tight to off stump too, and seems to just hold its line. Jansen, like he has done all over, stays leg side but the slight movement means that he wafts at fresh air. The ball whistles past the bat and leaves the stumps in an almighty mess, perhaps symbolic of this South African innings!. 109/6
9.1 to T Bavuma, hot knife through butter! Length delivery angled into middle and off. Bavuma, it seems, plays the trajectory and is caught on the crease. Has a waft at it but the ball keeps coming in with the angle, breezing past the inside edge and smashing into the stumps. The crowd comes to live and van der Merwe, as always, is pumped. South Africa in some trouble!. 39/2
11.2 to HE van der Dussen, can you believe what is happening? I can't, but the Netherlands fans in the crowd are absolutely ecstatic as is Roelof van der Merwe, who reminds me of Dale Steyn with his nerve-popping celebration. South Africa have been consumed by the pressure. Rassie is looking for a release and has reverse swept this tossed up delivery straight to backward point.. 44/4
33.1 to G Coetzee, what a catch under pressure by the skipper! Bas de Leede can't contain his joy. Surely that's the end of that for South Africa. Coetzee looks to fetch this short ball with a pull from outside off but ends up getting a top edge that swirls so high that Edwards circled around it for a while, and then finally hung on to it as it descended.. 147/8
35.1 to K Rabada, that's been hit straight to Engelbrecht at point! Rabada trying to back away to pick the gap behind point but ended up hittng it straight to the fielder. Netherlands one blow away from a famous win! The evening has turned and how for Bas. When he put down a catch to reprieve Miller at the long-on boundary, he was just a tad nervous. How well he's kept his composure to fight back in style.. 166/9
