 Michael van Lingen got the first boundary in the first over which was also the score after 1 over. Maintaining a low pace, Lingen changed the game when he crunched another two fours in the 5th over and lost his wicket to Ackermann, at a score of 30-2. 

 

 The duo Baard and Frylinck managed to cross half-century after 9 overs, getting a score of 51-3.

 To chase the run chase of 122, Netherlands’ Max O'Dowd and Vikramjit Singh came to the crease with Scholtz on the bowling attack. 

 

 With Vikramjit Singh streaking two fours in the second over only, NED made a great start, scoring 15-0 after 2 overs.
