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

!

Imran Tahir is named the Man of the Match for his superb 4-wicket spell. That's all from this game. The England vs Sri Lanka match is coming up next, so don't go anywhere.

!

Imran Tahir was extremely effective and got four crucial wickets. South Africa have had to battle it out through their skins and Netherlands can be proud of their performance though. But still, it was theirs to be lost and they would be totally gutted today. There was a spectacularly under-rated moment when AB de Villiers had saved five runs at the ropes where probably, majority of the fielders in the world would probably have conceded a six. The victory margin is 6 runs and that's how the margin of error is in this format.

!

What a match! Netherlands were excellent in their chase with Stephan Myburgh providing a rollicking start of 51 off just 28 balls. They were blazing away, in spite of losing wickets. But at 12.5, Steyn got rid of Ben Cooper when the Cooper brothers got together and from there on, it was just downhill for Netherlands.

OUT! SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 6 RUNS! Oh boy, what a South African finish this has been by Netherlands. They were cruising along in the chase but have lost their way after being 80/1 at a stage. A short ball, van der Gugten tries to loft it to third man but gets a faint edge through to Quinton de Kock. South Africa celebrate, and it's been a couple of hard-earned victories for them.

Lonwabo Tsotsobe to Mudassar Bukhari

OUT! This is harakari from Netherlands! There was absolutely no need for it. A short delivery, Bukhari tries to pull it away but only gets a high top edge towards long on. Miller runs in and takes it well. Netherlands nine down!

Lonwabo Tsotsobe to Mudassar Bukhari

Good length and wide, Bukhari smashes it down to mid off. Faf du Plessis was there in a flash with a dive and hurls a throw to Tsotsobe who was very sloppy there. Could have been a run-out, could have been a boundary if not for Faf.

!

Tsotsobe to bowl his final over.
