...
For his four-wicket haul, Paul van Meekeren is the Man of the Match.
...
Despite being a six-over match, the Ireland innings was one of two halves. Until three overs, Ireland were cruising at 28/1. But after that they imploded and lost six more wickets in the remaining three overs as van Meekeren ran riot.
...
And just like that Netherlands will go home a lot happier as they go away from the tournament with a victory. The rain might have played a huge part at the start of the day but it was the Dutch who have the last laugh, even if the rain gods almost cost them a chance to progress further in the tournament.
...
5.6 van Meekeren to Wilson, 1 run, goes for the slog but it goes to cover and Netherlands win by 12 runs.
...
The game is over but that will be the only blemish on van Meekeren's tournament.
...
5.6 van Meekeren to Wilson, NO BALL, batsman swings and misses but the bowler over-steps.
...
5.5 van Meekeren to McBrine, 1 run, finds the fielder at backward point and there is no hat-trick.
...
Can he get a hat-trick this time?
...
16 needed off two balls.
...
Another HAT-TRICK BALL coming up.
...
5.4 van Meekeren to Dockrell, WICKET, better ball and Dockrell swings and misses. The stumps are castled.
...
5.4 van Meekeren to Dockrell, false start as he runs and goes back to his run-up.
...
George Dockrell was the hero with the ball, can he hit three sixes and be the hero with the bat as well?
...
And Netherlands are almost home. Ireland need 16 off the last three. Three sixes needed.
...
5.3 van Meekeren to Sorensen, WICKET, length ball and the batsman goes for the pull and he misses and the bowler hits.
...
16 needed off the last four balls.
...
5.2 van Meekeren to Sorensen, 2 runs, inside edge but that goes to the vacant square leg area and the batsman picks up another two.
...
5.1 van Meekeren to Sorensen, 2 runs, another poor throw gives them a couple down the ground.
...
It will be pace.
...
Who will be the bowler for the final over? Paul van Meekeren or Roelof van der Merwe? Pace or Spin?
...
One over to go and Ireland need 20 to win.
...
4.6 Bukhari to Wilson, no run, brilliant yorker from Bukhari and Wilson can do nothing but pat it back to the bowler.
...
4.5 Bukhari to Sorensen, 1 run, full and straight and the batsman does well to drill it to long-on. There could have been a run-out had the throw been at the non-strikers' end instead of the keeper.
...
Just foour runs off four balls from the penultimate over so far.
...
4.4 Bukhari to Sorensen, 2 runs, that was again drilled down the ground and Bukhari diverts it past mid-off and they take two. But that is tremendous commitment from the bowler.
