Scorecard
In a seesaw contest, Netherlands' Peter Borren and Pieter Seelar held their nerve during a crucial 42-run partnership for the eighth wicket to edge out UAE in Deventer and win the two-match series 2-0. Chasing 222, Netherlands were comfortably placed at 162 for 3 in the 36th over, but four wickets went down for 18 runs and UAE held the advantage. However, Borren and Seelar stayed ahead of the required rate without hitting any boundaries until Seelar smashed Khurram Khan for a six to take Netherlands past UAE's score. The chase was set up by Michael Swart's 48, which included three sixes, at the top of the order and Tom Cooper's 46.
After being put into bat, UAE lost their first wicket without a run on the board to bring back memories of the first game, when they were shot out for 96. However, their captain Khurram scored 71 off 85 balls and Haroon Iftikhar made 41 off 77, adding 119 runs for the second wicket. However, Seelar (3-44) and Swart (2-36) kept taking frequent wickets to restrict UAE to 221.
