South Africa 232 and 86 for 1 dec (Benade 51) beat Netherlands108 (Loubser 5 for 37) and 50 (Loubser 3 for 22) by 159 runs
South Africa crushed Netherlands on the final day of the one-off Test at Rotterdam, to win by 159 runs with Sunette Loubser returning match figures of 8 for 59 from 54.3 overs. Netherlands crumbled twice on Tuesday - they lost their final six wickets for 19 runs in the first innings, and then were all out for 50 in the second, after South Africa set them 211 to win.
The visitors rushed to 86 for 1 from 22.3 overs before declaring to leave Netherlands an ask which was way beyond them. Susan Benade led South Africa's run-glut, with 51. South Africa weren't always on top in the match, though, after a first day wobble to 159 for 5. However, this score was soon put into context when they showed their true class on the last two days (with the third day washed out).
The result is bound to put into question the value of Netherlands playing another Test. This form of the game is already played infrequently, and while the side's first outing in this game was promising to begin with, it quickly unravelled.
