NED vs IRE Live Cricket Score, ICC World Twenty20, 2014 Commentry

!

That's all we have from this game. We have already witnessed one of the best T20Is ever and we have another match, India vs Pakistan coming up, so do not leave your seats!

!

This is probably a new benchmark set in chasing. But did it beat the historic 438 chase by South Africa? Or did it beat India's 320 run-chase in 40 overs? You never know. But none of those teams were minnows. And that's why this one is the real winner!

!

Stephan Myburgh was named the Man of the Match. He says that they wanted to go for the target right from the word go and were positive about it.

!

The heroics of Andrew Pontyr and Kevin O'Brien has gone in vain but they too, were superb in the first innings. The rate of scoring was absorbing and no one would give Netherlands even an ounce of chance to chase such a huge target in a small quota of overs.

!

Stephan Myburgh had provided the best start you could ever imagine and he went on to score the joint-second fastest fifty in T20I cricket and along with Peter Borren, set up the much-required platform for such a chase. But then Tom Cooper and Barresi got together and orchestrated one of the best finishes ever in the history of T20I cricket.

!

The scenes are amazing here. Feel for Ireland though. Never in their wildest dreams would you expect a side to chase down 190 in 14.2 overs and to do it in such breath-taking fashion, takes a lot of effort and skill.

Tim Murtagh to Wesley Barresi

SIX! The stadium is painted Oranje! NETHERLANDS HAVE CHASED DOWN 189 IN 13.5 OVERS AND GO THROUGH TO THE SUPER10 STAGE! These are incredible, incredible scenes! One of the best ever chases in the history of cricket and that coming from a small minnow, beating a big minnow! Short of a length delivery, Barresi smashes it over the mid-wicket fence and the dug out has come on to the field in wild celebrations! Ireland and Zimbabwe get knocked out and they would still be feeling numb about this.

A low full toss, heaved through mid-wicket for one.

Netherlands need 26 off 12 balls. The action's been nothing but outrageously good so far. Ireland are mostly, almost knocked out. The question is whether Netherlands can hold their nerves or now?
