Netherlands Win Last Ball Thriller

Well, with eight runs required from last three ball, it?s never going to be easy even if the best batsmen was at the crease because of the pressure. A very widespread defensive field was setup to prevent the boundaries as Ryan ten Doeschate took strike for the last three balls.

Fourth Ball - 2 Runs

Two runs of the fourth ball toward mid-wicket

Junaid Siddiqui bowls a slower back of length ball, pitching it outside the off stump and making it turn towards the first slip. Ryan ten Doeschate gets across and gets the wrists into play superbly, turning it wide of midwicket. ten Doeschate calls for the second run and they get it with ease because the return from Khurram Chohan is poor one from the deep.

Fifth Ball - 2 Runs

Ryan ten Doeschate hits past extra cover for another two runsi

Siddiqui fires a googly down leg, Ryan ten Doeschate makes room and drives past extra cover and the Dutch duo settle for a single but Siddiqui didn?t collect the throw cleanly and the ball rolls down the track towards long on. Seelaar scampers straight down the pitch and they get the second run.

Last Ball - 6 runs

ten Doeschate celebrates the Dutch victory after hitting a huge 6 of the last ball

Netherlands needed just 4 runs from the last ball and 3 runs to take the match to a super over. Jimmy Hansra had a long chat with his bowler Junnaid Siddiqui about the field and finally they decided to have a mid-wicket, long off, long on, cover, square leg and fine leg on the boundary.

Siddiqui balls it short on the middle and makes it turn towards the first slip. Ryan ten Doeschate slaps it very hard against the spin, over the mid-wicket fielder and into the stands for a huge six which seals a thrilling victory for the Dutch. The Dutch players are ecstatic and come running out from their dugout onto the middle and celebrate with Ryan ten Doeschate and Pieter Seelaar. While on the other hand the Canadian players look disappointed as they were so close yet so far from victory and a place in the main tournament.
