Billy Stelling831231.50431012
0.2 to NS Poonia, Stelling strikes, the ball was almost identical to the first only a little closer to the batsman, it pitched around off stump and moved away from Poonia, forcing him to fend at it, the ball kissed the outside edge and Smits took an easy catch. 0/1
6.2 to GM Hamilton, Stelling has his second, Hamilton moves across to one that pitches on middle and swings towards leg stump, he misses the flick and is hit just below the knee roll, Asoka de Silva says that was going to hit and Hamilton isn't happy, he's got to go though and replays show the ball hitting leg. 15/3
6.3 to DR Brown, Stelling is on a hat-trick! Stelling pitches that on off and middle and the ball angles into the right-hander, Brown gets half forward and the ball hits him low on the pad in front of middle, easy decision for de Silva to make. 15/4
Darron Reekers602313.83263020
3.2 to RM Haq, and the stump-to-stump line works! Reekers bowls one dead straight and the ball breaches Haq's defences, he tried to play across the line to that one and heard the sound of timber moments after he missed, van Bunge will be a relieved man. 9/2
Tim de Leede402416.00163120
13.4 to RR Watson, de Leede takes a blinder! He bowled that full to Watson who absolutely hammered the straight drive back at de Leede at head height, de Leede gets his hands up in time, parries the ball, and takes it on the second attempt, brilliant reflexes. 39/5
Mark Jonkman512224.40224010
20.4 to CJO Smith, timber! Jonkman pitches one just outside off stump and nips it back into Smith who thrusts his bat out, the ball takes the inside edge and hits the top of leg stump. 77/6
22.3 to NFI McCallum, caught at gully! Jonkman bowls it wide outside off stump again and McCallum cuts hard, he doesn't keep it down and hits it straight to Stelling who takes the catch at stomach height. 83/7
Mohammad Kashif722924.14335100
23.4 to CM Wright, Kashif gets into the act! He bowls one quicker and wider outside off stump, Wright gives him the charge and tries to drive, he isn't anywhere near the pitch of the ball and gets beaten, Smits whips off the bails in a trice. 83/8
31.1 to GA Rogers, edged and gone! The quicker one lands short and spins in, Rogers stands deep in his crease and tickles at it, and Smits snaps up the thin edge!. 117/9
Ryan ten Doeschate301705.66112020
Daan van Bunge1.10413.4230000
34.1 to PJC Hoffmann, It's all over. Scotland have folded up cheaply. A flighted delivery on the middle and off stump line produced a lofted drive but he was beaten in the flight and the dip. Ended up ballooning it towards mid-off and he is a goner.. 136/10

John Blain502925.80216010
3.1 to DJ Reekers, caught at mid-off! Reekers tries to hit down the ground but the ball hit the outside half of the bat and spoons up to Wright at mid-off who takes the easiest of catches, Netherlands lose their first wicket. 18/1
5.4 to ES Szwarczynski, good length ball on middle stump, Szwarczynski takes a step down and tries to pull even though it is not short enough for the stroke, the ball hits the top edge and flies high in the air to the wicketkeeper Smith who takes the steepling catch with ease. 37/2
