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.
