Commentary

Netherlands won by 45 runs | England Vs Netherlands Live Score, 29th T20 Match, Group 1

Netherlands, who enjoyed an euphoric entry into the main draw, sign off with an equally euphoric win. Well, That's it from this game. Do switch tabs and feast on all the action from the second match of the double header today, pitting Sri Lanka against New Zealand in a virtual quarterfinal.
Borren: 'Fantastic feeling for us. I thought we didn't get enough but we discussed that it was one last chance and let's put in our 100%. I am really proud of the guys for their effort. They are obviously a fantastic cricket team, we've played them before. Coming back from that Sri Lanka game and also the South Africa game which we should have won tells the character of my side. It's a really nice way to end the tournament and I think we've made the people back home very proud. We've shown people that we can play cricket at the highest level. We should have definitely beaten South Africa.'
Broad: 'It sums up our winter as an England cricket side. First the Ashes loss and then everything went downhill. It was a very bad run chase by us. We lacked a bit of hunger by the looks of it, no one was ready to take up responsibility. It's hugely disappointing but we have no excuses, we should have chased this down easily. We never got going. There were some extremely soft dismissals and the players have let their fans down. We chased down 190 odd against Sri lanka, we came close to South Africa. If I wasn't part of the team that played today and looked at that scorecard, I'd say they were complacent. We have a problem chasing down targets. We lost quite a few games recently but we need to find a way forward. We've lost a lot of key players like KP and Swanny but yeah, as a cricket side we need to get better. There are going to be decisions made at the top in the next few weeks but I've thoroughly enjoyed my stint as captain.'
Bukhari: 'Feeling very good. We have given some good games until now but today we've done it. The whole tournament I haven't taken any wickets but the surface helped me a bit today. It was stopping a bit when you hit the deck hard. When we took 3-4 wickets in the powerplay, we had a very good chance and the captain led from the front. Everyone contributed and did their job today.'
Bukhari is the Man of the Match for his splendid figures of 3.4-0-12-3.
Borren's aggressive field placement was another vital ingredient in the thumping win. Bukhari and van Beek snared 3 wickets apiece but the other bowlers chipped in as well. While the Dutch have captivated us with their never-say-die brand of cricket, where will England go from here?
Another incredible chapter added to the legend of the Dutch. Borren's boys may have been 15-20 runs short with the bat but their bowling was right on the money. The fielding was razor-sharp as well as they claim their second upset win over England. The English batsmen blacked out in the face of some clever bowling with only three batsmen managing to score double digit scores.
17.4 Mudassar Bukhari to James Tredwell W
out Parry Run Out!! 1 run completed. Game over for England! What an incredible triumph for Netherlands. So, history repeats itself. This was fullish and outside off, Tredwell lofts it high into the night sky off the toe end of the blade, the ball lands in no-man's land near sweeper cover between the two converging fielders. Swart picks up the ball and fires an accurate throw to the keeper, who whips the bails off, to catch Parry well short of the crease. Poor, poor, mix-up. That triggers off wild celebrations in the Dutch camp. Parry run out (Swart/Barresi) 1(1)
10 wickets down for ENG. Out batsman is Stephen Parry. It is all over for ENG.
Netherlands topple England. What an inspiring display from the Dutch boys. NED vs ENG in T20Is- 2-0! That sort of sums up the nightmarish winter for England. The players exchange pleasantries.
17.3 Mudassar Bukhari to Stephen Parry 1
1 run, full toss on middle and leg, clipped away to deep mid wicket
Stephen Parry, right handed bat, comes to the crease
17.2 Mudassar Bukhari to Stuart Broad W
out Caught by Barresi!! Broad has nicked off. Bukhari lets out a primeval roar. This was a good length slower ball just outside off, Broad lines up for a crude hoick across the line, all he manages is an edge to the keeper. The lack of pace did the English captain in. NED are on the cusp of a famous win. Broad c Barresi b Bukhari 4(5)
3 wickets for Mudassar Bukhari. Mudassar Bukhari is on a roll.
17.1 Mudassar Bukhari to James Tredwell 1
1 run, full toss outside off, Tredwell slaps it over extra cover, only a single results
Mudassar Bukhari [3.0-0-9-2] is back into the attack
Fine leg and third man in the circle.
