Commentary

South Africa won by 6 runs | Netherlands Vs South Africa Live Score, 21st T20 Match, Group 1

That's it from the first game. Netherlands showed that they are not here to fill up a spot. Now onto the second game, it is England taking on Sri Lanka. Jump tabs and join us for the toss and team updates from that match.
Faf: 'It's a good sign, when your side is not playing at 100% and still you manage to get over the line. We were just at 50-60% today. We started off well with the bat. Then we lost our way in the middle. Credit to some good bowling. Ahsan was brilliant with his cutters on a pitch that suited him. Steyn and Tahir bowled well. Beuran Hendricks gave good support. Netherlands played fantastic cricket. They were in control for 70% of the game and should have won. For a side that is trying to win the World Cup, this is not good enough.'
Borren: 'We had wickets in hand, I was disappointed. But I am proud of the the way we came back. We played across the line to Tahir. We had to play straighter. He got two lbws and two bowled. They got off to a flying start and the way we pulled it back was outstanding. Ahsan is a wonderful performer. Hats off to him. It was a shame that the batsmen did not pull it off. I have to take responsibility. As much as I am miffed, I am proud of the way we stepped up.'
Tahir: 'Thanks, I am really pleased. It was a good team effort. I do not know what to say really. We knew we had to win this. It was a tough game to be honest. I tried to bowl wicket to wicket. There was not much spin today.'
Imran Tahir is the Man of the Match for his match winning figures of 4/21.
South African bowlers were led by Steyn and Tahir. Both of them shared 6 wickets between them and were the ones who pulled things back when the game was running away. They were well supported in the field as they took some good catches and the ground fielding was at its best. Stay tuned for the presentation....
Netherlands have thrown away a great opportunity to cause an upset. They started off very well. Myburgh got things rolling as he took a liking to the bowlers and brought up his 2nd fifty of the Cup. They were looking well on course at one stage, before they lost a heap of wickets in the middle. The lower-order were not able to keep their cool as they played some poor shots and gave their wickets away.
18.4 Beuran Hendricks to Timm van der Gugten W
out Caught by de Kock!! South Africa hold their nerve and win by 6 runs. This was a short delivery on the stumps, van der Gugten backs away slightly and tries to cut it, he just gets a feather on the way to de Kock who takes the catch and throws the ball up in jubilation. van der Gugten c de Kock b Beuran Hendricks 8(12)
10 wickets down for NED. Out batsman is Timm van der Gugten. It is all over for NED.
18.3 Beuran Hendricks to Timm van der Gugten 0
no run, back of the hand slower one, van der Gugten nudges it to square leg, the single was on but Malik can't go through and he denies it
18.2 Beuran Hendricks to Ahsan Malik 1
1 run, back of a length outside off, Malik guides it to third man with an horizontal bat, he is not running freely, he might have pulled his hamstring while bowling
18.1 Beuran Hendricks to Timm van der Gugten 1
1 run, low full toss outside off, van der Gugten creams the drive to sweeper cover
Beuran Hendricks [3.0-0-14-0] is back into the attack
End of over 18, 5 runs (. 1 1 W 2 1 )
NED: 137/9

1 run, fuller and outside off, van der Gugten drives it past cover and keeps strike
17.5 Lonwabo Tsotsobe to Timm van der Gugten 2
2 runs, Dropped! Has Steyn dropped the match? This was the slower one once again from Tsotsobe, van der Gugten heaves it to deep mid wicket, he had not middled that. Steyn runs in and spills a low catch, he did all the hard work by running in but just couldn't hold on to that
Ahsan Malik, right handed bat, comes to the crease
