Scorecard
Netherlands chased down a 97-run target in 21.4 overs to secure a comfortable win after Mudassar Bukhari and Timm van der Gugten had razed the UAE batting order in the first ODI in Rotterdam. UAE made an encouraging start to score 25 runs but Bukhari bowled opener Haroon Iftikhar with the fourth ball of his second over and two balls later, he accounted for Shaiman Anwar. At the other end, van der Gugten took two more wickets in his first three balls push UAE into further trouble. UAE never recovered from the initial shock and kept losing wickets in quick intervals. A fighting 41 off 81 balls by Rohan Mustafa helped UAE to hobble to 96.
The total never challenged Netherlands as Tom Cooper led the chase with a quick 35-ball 37 as Netherlands took a 1-0 lead in the two match series. The next match will be played on July 23 in Deventer.
