5.5 to RE van der Merwe, banged into the surface and absolutely reared up. Looked as if it took the top edge before the keeper caught sharply, and Sri Lanka review. The replay shows a faint nick, and that's it for van der Merwe - the Dutch are six down!. 37/6

2.3 to BN Cooper, cleans him up! That might have been the carrom ball; well it certainly was a wicket ball. Cooper raced down the track and watched the ball slip underneath the bat and rattle into middle stump. Sri Lanka surging!. 19/2
2.5 to SJ Myburgh, oh my, the carrom ball does the trick again! It looked like a long hop and Myburgh read it as such, shaping to heave it over midwicket. Instead it races through and clatters into middle again. Netherlands are reeling!. 20/3

9.1 to SA Edwards, struck on the pads again and the umpire raises the finger. If he hasn't got an edge on that, it's plumb And he hasn't, so he's not going to survive this. Yep, ball tracking confirms this, and Netherlands lose another wicket and their last review. 44/8
9.3 to BD Glover, little nick and that's the ninth wicket! Netherlands are one away from being bowled out inside the first 10!. tried to punch it into the offside, but it takes a feather off the outside edge and goes through to the keeper for a straightforward catch. 44/9
9.6 to PA van Meekeren, yorker that tails into him, he thinks it's good and is appealing - it's given and Netherlands don't have a review left - so that means this is the end of the innings, at exactly the 10-over mark. For what it's worth, I think it was sliding down, but it's not likely to make much difference.. 44/10
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva30933.00131000
4.3 to CN Ackermann, plumb - no point reviewing that, really, but he does!. Landed on middle, looked to have hit him on middle and was crashing into middle and leg. Pointless review, and they've lost it. 31/4
4.6 to BFW de Leede, that's gone, too! Spinning back in and clipped the pads, and the umpire raises the finger! Bas de Leede decides against reviewing, and that's half the side gone. 32/5
6.6 to PM Seelaar, that's plumb. Skids right through and there's no doubt about that. Netherlands lose their seventh. 40/7

1.3 to P Nissanka, holes out to mid-off and that's some cheer for the Dutch. Skipped down the track and had a wild slog at this, gets a leading edge that swirls high and settles into the hands of the fielder comfortably.. 7/1
Paul van Meekeren2020110.0054010
5.4 to KIC Asalanka, caught at mid-on. Asalanka hasn't looked fluent in his stay and he perishes with another slog across the line. Length ball on off, not really there for the pull, he goes for it anyway, gets a top edge that balloons up for an easy catch. 31/2
