Seelaar and Kervezee shut out Scotland

Netherlands were clinical with ball and, to a lesser degree, with bat, executing a seven-wicket victory in their warm-up game against Scotland at the Oval

Save for that minor hiccup in the last over, Netherlands were never in trouble. Kervezee and Zuiderent made use of the modest target to find form. Good all-round show.
