4.4 to BFW de Leede, de Leede won't be putting that on his Instagram stories later tonight.... He shuffles across his stumps in a premeditated attempt to scoop over fine leg, Little sends down a meatball of a full toss at thigh height that clangs into the top of leg stump after de Leede flails on his intended stroke. Yikes. You won't be seeing that in the MCC coaching manual for batter or bowler.. 22/2
16.3 to MP O'Dowd, O'Dowd... Oh dear! Holes out to long-on! Adair's cutter does the trick, the batter unable to generate the power he needed when looking to slog down the ground. Almost went all the way, mind, only for Harry Tector to take a well-judged catch at head height in front of the rope. 88/7
19.4 to PM Seelaar, slower ball, slogged to long-on! Seelaar's valiant attempt to scrap his side a score ends in the final over, completely mistiming a swish down the ground. Balbirnie runs in to take a straightforward catch. 105/8
19.6 to BD Glover, plopped straight up, long-off takes it running in! Campher with the catch, Adair has his third and Ireland end the innings with W-W-W! It's another for the Dutch, who lost 4 for 0 in the tenth over and finish things in similarly chaotic fashion. 106/10
9.2 to CN Ackermann, short tailing down leg, big appeal for caught behind from Campher. Didn't sound like anything live as Ackermann is late on an attempted pull but both Campher and the keeper Neil Rock have convinced captain Andy Balbirnie to call for the review for possible caught behind. But it's a quality sales job by Campher as replays show Ackermann has gloved this with a spike showing up on UltraEdge! Another bad ball wicket for Ireland. After so much poor luck against the Dutch since that match at Sylhet in 2014, everything is going their way this afternoon in Abu Dhabi.. 51/3
9.3 to RN ten Doeschate, pitched up and pinned in front! Tendo goes first ball! Campher has two in two and Netherlands are in trouble. Someone needs to put a finger in the dyke! Full and straight and ten Doeschate, who announced his retirement from county cricket last month and has not been in great form, was stuck in treacle, bat coming across the line - looked to be hitting leg stump. 51/4
9.4 to SA Edwards, goes full again, hit on the front pad... not given this time! Rod Tucker shakes his head, Campher looks imploringly at him. That looked close to me, and Ireland are going to review. No footwork once again, beats the inside edge of the bat... and Hawk-Eye has it smacking leg stump! Curtis Campher has a hat-trick! Netherlands have had the stuffing knocked right out of them. 51/5
9.5 to RE van der Merwe, bowled 'im! FOUR IN FOUR! Campher has done a Malinga, as van der Merwe throws the bat and drags a wide one into off stump. Incredible scenes as the Boys in Green seize control in Abu Dhabi. Campher had none for 12 at the start of his over - now he has 4 for 13!!. 51/6

4.6 to A Balbirnie, the short ball plan finally comes off. Klaassen bangs this in again on fifth stump and Balbirnie tries to repeat the pull through midwicket but mistimes this and it flutters gently to van der Merwe in the ring who takes a catch tumbling to his right.. 36/2
3.5 to KJ O'Brien, short on middle, KOB tries to imitate Stirling's slice over third man but instead he pops this straight up over extra cover in the ring. Easy catch taken halfway in from the 30-yard circle.. 27/1
12.5 to GJ Delany, bowled on the charge! Seelaar yorks Delany as he attempts to come down and finish this quickly... the ball skids into off stump but it's small consolation for the Netherlands captain, with the goose almost cooked. 95/3
