Fred Klaassen403418.5091200
18.4 to MD Shanaka, straight down to long-on where Ackermann slightly misjudged it but held his composure to run a couple of steps back to the rope and take the catch sideways, seemingly mindful of the ropes behind.. 151/5
Tim Pringle302207.3380200
Roelof van der Merwe301605.33102000
Paul van Meekeren402526.25113010
6.3 to P Nissanka, cleans him up with a yorker! Short, short, short and full. This is outstanding at 146kph. Nissanka seemed a little ruffled with the previous delivery. Hung back inside the crease instead of coming forward, missed it all together as this delivery veered in late.. 36/1
6.4 to DM de Silva, big appeal and given! Are they going to review? Dhananjay is very hesitant, decides to walk off in the end. van Meekeren bowls full, the ball angles in to beat his attempted flick as he's struck on the pad. Was definitely worth a review with the angle of the delivery going towards leg stump. Ball tracking shows this would've definitely missed leg stump. Oh, dear.. 36/2
Bas de Leede3031210.3352200
14.1 to KIC Asalanka, done in by the slowness of the surface. Asalanka is gone in trying to back away and slash. This is an off cutter from de Leede that he gets a thick bottom edge to and Edwards dives forward to complete the catch behind the stumps. This partnership was just starting to threaten Netherlands.. 96/3
17.2 to PBB Rajapaksa, shovelled straight to long-on! Hit well but down the throat of the fielder. de Leede may have just for a moment wondered if that full toss may be put away but Bhanuka was in trouble the moment he hit it towards long-on because that's the longest part of the boundary.. 130/4
Timm van der Gugten3031110.3332100
19.2 to BKG Mendis, top-edges this slog sweep, the ball goes miles in the air and Logan Van Beek does well the shadows lengthening at deep midwicket to take this steepler. The ball was swirling in the air for a bit but he kept his eye on the ball right till the very end to complete the catch. End of a superb innings.. 157/6

Dhananjaya de Silva10505.0010000
Lahiru Kumara402817.00142110
5.6 to BFW de Leede, Big appeal for a caught behind, and de Leede is gone! Another one back of a length outside off from Kumara, and de Leede is caught fending unconvincingly at this. Just a feather of a touch through to Mendis, but it's enough. Big wicket in the context of this chase!. 40/2
Binura Fernando403318.25114110
14.3 to SA Edwards, One sweep too many and Edwards' cameo comes to an end! This was the knuckle ball from Binura, yorker length. Edwards shows too much of the stumps and Binura strikes.. 100/5
Maheesh Theekshana403228.00121221
3.5 to Vikramjit Singh, This time he's not so lucky! The pressure tells, as Singh looks to hoick this length ball over mid-on but only ends up barreling it straight down his throat.. 23/1
11.3 to TLW Cooper, Carrom ball cleans him up! This skidded through off a length, and Cooper was done going for the slog sweep. Gets nowhere near it and the stumps are disturbed.. 72/4
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva402837.00113000
6.3 to CN Ackermann, And now he strikes! And it so often is, it's the googly that does the trick for Wanindu. This is on a good length, and Ackermann picks the googly looking to work it onside. But nevetheless only manages a gentle leading edge back to the bowler.. 47/3
16.1 to T van der Gugten, Length on off it's the googly and he's right through the gap! Beauty from Hasaranga.. 105/7
16.6 to FJ Klaassen, Down the track and Wanindu has another! This kept low, very low, and Klaasen is in no man's land as he misses the big heave-ho. Ball clatters into the base of middle.. 109/8
