short ball and hoicked away! It was a real half tracker from Aryan, picks up the length early and clobbers it way over deep midwicket fence
West Indies won by 5 wickets (with 27 balls remaining)
West Indies take unassailable lead of 2-0 in the series. Netherlands were knocked out under 50 overs and managed to score just 214. Max O'Dowd and Vikramjit took the West Indies bowlers apart and piled a century stand before Vikramjit lobbed one back to Walsh, O'Dowd followed him adding just 14 more to the total. None of the other batters looked comfortable against the spin except for Scot Edwards who used his feet well and maneuvered all over the park. Except for the top three none of the other batters managed to even reach the two figure mark. Akeal Hosein the chief destroyer once again bagged match winning 4 scalps. But not to forget West Indies fielding early on was in bit of shambles and dropped a few sitters which helped the Netherlands openers to pocket some easy runs.
Chasing the modest 215, West Indies didn't get to the start they had last game. Logan van Beek kept asking questions and eventually got better of Brooks who chipped one straight to Seelaar at midwicket. Centurion of the last game Shai Hope, Nkrumah Bonner, who is yet to find some form, and the skipper Nic Pooran didn't last long either. The Dutch sniffed something special but was just a momentary bliss as Brandon King and Keacy Carty stitched a match defining century run partnership and saw their team home. Bas de Leede who failed with the willow in his last two outings was better with the ball. Bowled with some gas and bagged two important wickets at the crucial juncture of the game.
Brandon King has been adjudged Player of the match for his match winning knock. That is it from here, this is Thilak Ram signing off on behalf of Binoy George and Ranjith P. Take care and Tot ziens...!
good line there, not offering any width. Pushed to on side
length ball on off stump, played back to the bowler
full on off, shimmies to leg and drives to cover
back of a length, miscued the slog back to the bowler
that sums up for Netherlands. On the pads, flicked nonchalantly towards deep midwicket. Shariz out there over runs, doesn't the spin on the ball into consideration and makes a mess
persisting on short of a good length, swivels and pulls to on side for a single
back of a length on off, hops and stabs to point
MSkiran: "I think Keacy Carty getting a 50 would bring in more confidence to the team than a 100 for Brendan King. No offence just thinking realistic. It will be a very much trying for neither of them getting to a new landmark. "
tad wide on off, drives through cover for a single
arm ball, goes on with the angle and played back to the bowler
Andrew: "Is dutt bowling spin or seam?" - Spinner masquerading as a quickie
flatter and quicker, tucks to on side
nudged to on side, no run there
length ball on off stump, cuts to deep
length on off and smoked to midwicket, van Beek again in action and can't hold on
long hop on stumps, King opens up a bit and
lofts shovels it straight. Vikramjit at long-on failed to flick it back
Praveen: "Brandon King has to score the next 15 runs and hit a six to reach his century.
Back of a length, swivels and pulls to vacant on side
full on off and thumped back, van Beek on his follow through shells a tough one. Hard to call a chance, van Beek was ducking for life there
banged in short and sails over. Called wide and 100 run partnership
once again, nips back in from off, runs down to third man for a run
back of a length, angled in. Hanged back and stabbed towards third man region
