  • November 03, 2023 16:42
    NED 167/8 in 40 overs

    Mujeeb traps Dutt in front. Goes up in appeal. Umpire says no and Afghanistan has no reviews left to counter the decision. Looked close on the replays and ball tracking suggests three reds. Mujeeb unlucky there.

  • November 03, 2023 16:33
    NED 162/8 in 38 overs

  • November 03, 2023 16:07
    NED 129/6 in 30 overs

    Two missed chances for Afghanistan in Noor’s over. The first edge went quickly between wicket keeper and slip. The second one was more of a chance though, stinging Nabi’s palms at slip before findings its way to the boundary.

    NED 97/5 in 20.2 overs

  • November 03, 2023 15:30
    NED 97/4 in 20 overs

    Things have gone from bad to worse for the Netherlands in the last five overs. After losing Max O’Dowd with a runout, Netherlands has lost two more batters in a similar fashion without adding many runs on the board. Can Bas de Leede and Sybrand Engelbrecht save the drawing Dutch boat?

  • November 03, 2023 15:26
    Edwards departs in back-to-back runouts

    OUT! Make it the third run-out and second wicket in a row!

    OUT! Max ODowd departs

    NED 73/2 in 11.3 overs

  • November 03, 2023 14:32
    NED 66/1 in 10 overs - ODowd-Ackermann in rebuild

    Some run-scoring intent is shown by Max ODowd. He takes on Fazhalhaq Farooqi and drives a couple of length deliveries on off-side to get two boundaries from his over.

    Mujeeb bowled full and on leg and Ackermann wastes no time to punish him on the leg side to pick a quick boundary. The run rate is lying above 6 at the moment.

    The run continues to come for the Netherlands as ODowd hits Farooqi for two more fours in his fourth over to take his team past 50 in the eighth over.

    Max ODowd is punishing bad lines and lengths with apt shot selections. He scored 40 runs via nine fours. The Netherlands managed 66/1 in the first PowerPlay.

  • November 03, 2023 14:13
    NED 28/1 in 5 overs

    Farooqi with his second. Four!! Strays in line, Ackermann clips it behind fine leg and it races away for four.

    Mujeeb with his third. A quick single to cover and O’Dowd was struggling at the non-strikers. Needed a direct hit. Rashid was the fielder and he’s walking off the field clutching his lower back. Not a good sign for Afghanistan. Four!! A sweep shot through point from Ackermann!! Four!! Mujeeb strays in line again, turned behind fine leg for another four.

  • November 03, 2023 14:05
    NED 13/1 in 3 overs

    Farooqi with the second over. Four!! Full on the stumps, O’Dowd times it down the ground and its has enough to get to the boundary. Six from the over.

    Mujeeb continues. O’Dowd is caught in front as well, but an inside edge saves him. Four from the over.

  • November 03, 2023 14:00
    NED 3/1 in 1 over

    Max O’Dowd and the veteran Wesley Baressi walk in to open the batting for the Netherlands. Mujeeb with the first over.

    Barresi struggled to pick Mujeeb in the first two balls. Eventually drives the third ball to long on for a single to get off the mark. O’Dowd follows suit. Wicket!! Barresi is trapped in front, decides against the review as well. Was angled in to the stumps, Barresi played across the wrong line.

    Barresi lbw b Mujeeb 1(4)

    Ackermann in at 3.

    Pitch report

    “Rather warm conditions,” says Mpumelelo Mbangwa at the pitch report. “Mix of red and black soil with some grass cuttings thrown in,” says Shaun Pollock. The black and red soil pitches in this ground have offered the least assistance to spin they reckon. Win the toss and bat first says Pollock.
