Fred Klaassen401714.25170120
17.5 to R Ngarava, Myburgh backtracks and takes a reverse-cup grab while taking a tumble. Full and wide outside off, forcing the tail-end batter to reach out. Loses his shape while trying to loft it, and the sliced shot goes high up for point to get under it.. 111/9
Paul van Meekeren402937.25133020
1.3 to W Madhevere, Stumps splattered! Excellent stuff from van Meekeren and Netherlands. He bowled inswingers to Ervine and then had two slips for Madhevere, the right-hander, readying him for the possible outswinger. But he spears a full and straight ball on middle. Madhevere is caught on the back foot and looks to flick but misses and the ball sneaks through. Terrific start for the Dutch.. 9/1
11.5 to SC Williams, that's gone high and it's gone straight to O'Dowd at deep square leg. Once again a good length ball around leg stump but a bit of extra bounce from the tall seam bowler. Williams tries to pull, but gets a top edge, and Netherlands had two outfielders on the leg side boundary. 68/4
15.6 to RP Burl, bat-pad-stumps! Van Meekeren ends his spell with a wicket. Full ball, cross-seamer on off stump. Burl tries to drive, but it takes the inside edge, hits the back leg, and then rolls onto the stumps. 98/7
Brandon Glover412927.25152220
3.6 to CR Ervine, That's gone straight up... it swirls in the air and Edwards takes a well-judged catch. Netherlands' pressure-building tactics bearing fruit. Sees another length ball angling in on the stumps and Ervine looks to tonk it over the on side. All he manages is a top edge that. Edwards moves to his right, settles under it but has to dive to complete the catch. A wicket-maiden to start for Glover.. 14/2
5.6 to RW Chakabva, Plumb in front! Yes it is. Chakabva was not expecting this. After a barrage of deliveries outside off, he waits for another one. But Glover spears it full and on the stumps. He misses the flick and is struck adjacent to off and middle. Zimbabwe slide further in a crucial game.. 20/3
Logan van Beek2.201727.2881110
12.4 to M Shumba, if there ever was a soft dismissal it is this. Fullish ball on middle, and Shumba presses forward to fend with hard hands. Hits the top half of the bat and pops up for Myburgh at short midwicket to take a simple one. 77/5
19.2 to B Muzarabani, Netherlands need 118 to win as this attempted cut to a length ball takes a thick edge. Ball goes high up and short third gets under it.. 117/10
Bas de Leede401423.50110000
14.2 to Sikandar Raza, ball is high in the air for eternity but long on, Klaassen, keeps his eyes on the ball and then takes the catch tumbling forward. Good length ball outside off, Raza tried to back his timing and power to clear long on, but this time he cannot. Out for another very useful contribution with the bat - 40 this time.. 92/6
16.3 to LM Jongwe, good length ball getting big on Jongwe. But he has committed to the pull a tad too early. Hit decently, but straight to the fielder at cow corner. Slower ball, replays confirm.. 100/8

Tendai Chatara402205.50144000
Richard Ngarava401824.50151100
13.4 to CN Ackermann, holes out to mid on as Ngarava gets Ackermann to play an aggressive shot, however, this length ball on off is mistimed by the batter. Can't clear the inielder, and Jongwe backtracks to take a smart catch. 91/3
16.3 to SA Edwards, Netherlands stuttering with victory in sight as another wicket falls, this time the captain. Short of a good length on middle. Edwards tries to swipe across the line but the ball gets big on Edwards before taking an outside edge to the keeper. 116/5
Blessing Muzarabani402325.75142110
3.2 to SJ Myburgh, Gone, Muzarabani proves to be the Blessing for Zimbabwe! Pounds it on a hard length around off and middle, Myburgh is drawn into a false stroke. Looks to drive it on the up over covers and ends up slicing it to backward point where Burl times his jump perfectly.. 17/1
15.1 to MP O'Dowd, short and wide. O'Dowd backs away and cuts uppishly, but straight to Shumba at deep point! O'Dowd can't take Netherlands home, someone else will have the pleasure of doing that. Shumba makes up for that previous error and also makes a case for why he is one of Zimbabwe's better fielders.. 109/4

12.5 to TLW Cooper, good length on middle, and pulled straight to deep midwicket. Was in the slot to be pulled but hits the top of the bat, and therefore it is caught out. However, Madhevere while taking the catch has twisted his left ankle. So he is off the field after the catch. 90/2
