  • Player of the Match
    Paul van Meekeren
Right then! Credit to the groundsmen for getting this game in the first place. Netherlands end the tournament on a high while Ireland have plenty to ponder. That is all we have from this game. But stay tuned for the big one coming up - BANGLADESH VS OMAN, which will decide who will go through to the Super 10s.
PETER BORREN says that he is happy with the way the match turned out in the end. Praises Meekeren for picking up 4 wickets which set up the game. Also has a word of praise for Bukhari for playing well with the bat. Feels sorry for Ireland as they could have won the game as well.
WILLIAM PORTERFIELD says that Ireland have not been good enough for the last one week. Admits that with 32 needed from 24, they should have been home.
PAUL VAN MEEKEREN, Man Of the Match, says it was special to bowl well today. Also mentions it had to be a good bowling performance especially in this small game. Confirms he did what he had to do for the side as they were practising for last 20 days or so. At the end bids a big thank you to the groundsmen for having this match.
Paul van Meekeren was the star of the show. he started the rut, dismissing Kevin O'Brien and Stirling in successive balls and then took another two in his final over. van der Merwe, Malik and Bukhari supported him well. Overall, a great bowling performance but Ireland will feel that with 32 needed from 24 balls with 9 wickets in hand, they should have romped home. Just one batsman made it to double figures.
Terrific win for the Dutch! At 28/1 in 2 overs, it seemed like Ireland were all over the men in oranje. But then, we had two overs which yielded 4 wickets and the Irish were hit badly. They then needed 20 runs off the final over but it was too much to be done.

        Paul van Meekeren To Paul Stirling OUT!
        OUT! Two in two! Game on? Perhaps. A short ball outside off, 127 kph, Stirling arches back and looks to guide it over short third man but the connection is not that great. The ball hits the top half of the bat and goes straight up in the air. Simple catch to Roelof van der Merwe at short third man. Meekeren is on a hat-trick now.
        GARY WILSON walks in at number 4, replacing Kevin O'Brien.

        OUT! That is a S-E-N-S-A-T-I-O-N-A-L catch! Pieter Seelaar, take a bow. What a catch. Phew. A short ball outside off, 133 kph, Kevin O'Brien pulls this over mid-wicket. The ball flies and seems destined to reach the boundary but Seelaar runs to his left from the deep, keeps his eyes on the ball and then dives to take a stunner! A duck for Kevin O'Brien.

          SIX! Off the top edge. Stirling makes use of the extra ball of the over. A length ball around off, 120 kph, Stirling gets across and looks to scoop but the ball goes off the top edge due to the bounce and clears the fine leg fence! 18 from the over!

          Timm van der Gugten To William Porterfield OUT!
          OUT! Gugten gets a wicket now. Needless stroke, especially when Ireland have already got 7 off the first two balls. A length ball outside off, 138 kph, Porterfield looks to heave it across the line. He does heave it but the ball gets more height than distance and Ben Cooper gets a dolly at mid on. IRELAND NEED 42 FROM 27 BALLS!

            FOUR BYES! Hard luck for the keeper. He is keeping to a left-hander and when the ball is down the leg side, he is blinded. Outside leg, 122 kph, Porterfield steps back and looks to heave but misses. Poor Barresi behind has no chance. The ball screams to the fine leg fence.
