Defending a relatively low total of 133, Netherlands needed a good start. Mudassar Bukhari provided exactly that as he picked up two quick wickets.
After Bukhari sent back the openers, Logan van Beek (3/9) dismantled England's middle-order to put them in trouble.
It was Wesley Barresi's knock of 48 that helped Netherlands to a decent total after Stuart Broad's 3/24 had ruined their good start.
Stephen Myburgh gave his side a good start as he and his opening partner Michael Swart raced away to 34 in less than four overs.
Stuart Broad (3/24) was the pick of the bowlers for his side but his efforts were in vain as England batting imploded during their run chase.
