Pakistan defeated the Netherlands by six wickets in yesterday’s (October 30) ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 Super 12 match in Perth. The Dutch won the toss and opted to bat first in the Group 2 game. However, Shadab Khan (3/22) and Mohammad Wasim Jr (2/15) shone with the ball as the Netherlands were held to 91/9. In response, Pakistan lost four wickets but got over the line in 13.5 overs.

Shaheen Afridi struck the first blow of the match as Stephan Myburgh (six) top-edged a short ball. The Netherlands’ chances of putting up a decent total suffered a massive blow as Bas de Leede (six) had to retire hurt after being hit on the grille of the helmet by a pacy delivery from Haris Rauf. Logan van Beek replaced De Leede as the concussion substitute.

Coming back to Netherlands’ innings, Tom Cooper (one), Max O'Dowd (eight), and Colin Ackermann (27) all fell to Shadab in quick succession. Dutch skipper Scott Edwards (15) then scooped Naseem Shah straight to fine leg.

Rauf and Wasim Jr combined to blow away the lower order. While the former cleaned up Roelof van der Merwe (five), the latter knocked over Tim Pringle (five) and Fred Klaassen (0) off consecutive deliveries.

Chasing 92, Pakistan lost skipper Babar Azam cheaply again. This time, he was run-out for four, looking for a quick single to the right of mid-on. Mohammad Rizwan (49 off 39) and Fakhar Zaman (20 off 16) spent some useful time out in the middle, but neither stayed to take Pakistan past the winning line.

After Shan Masood (12) also threw his wicket away, bowling hero Shadab had to come in to hit the winning runs.

Despite the triumph, Pakistan’s chances of qualification for the semi-finals suffered a major blow as South Africa defeated India by five wickets in the subsequent Group 2 match at the same venue.
