PREVIEW WI vs NED: Heading into the final round of the league-stage matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018, Windies find themselves in a position that will be the subject of envy for most of the other sides in the tournament, none more so than their opponents on Monday – the Netherlands. Windies sit happy and healthy at the top of Group A, having won their three matches so far, and boasting a healthy net run rate of 1.019. They have already sealed their place in the Super Sixes, and there has been an aura about them that adds an extra dimension to an already strong outfit. The Netherlands, meanwhile, came into the tournament as ICC World Cricket League champions, and were expected to go far. However, they find themselves in a desperate situation. They have lost two of their three matches, and are fourth on the table, behind all of Windies, Ireland and the United Arab Emirates. They are two points behind third-placed UAE, and victory is imperative if they are to keep their hopes of going through to the next round alive. In fact, nothing less than a big victory against Windies will suffice, given that net run rate will come into play and the Netherlands’ currently reads -0.445. The Netherlands put together a welcome victory in their last outing against Papua New Guinea, winning by 57 runs after Sikander Zulfiqar’s half-century and Roelof van der Merwe’s 4/46. However, in perhaps tougher outings before that against Ireland and UAE, they lost by 93 runs (DLS method) and six wickets respectively. The problem area for Netherlands seems to be the batting. They managed just 149 against Ireland while chasing 243, and were bundled out for 176 against UAE in their next match. Even against PNG, their batsmen were guilty of not capitalising on starts, and they needed Zulfiqar to score a late half-century and push the total to 216/8. Windies might have already qualified, but they are unlikely to take their foot off the pedal, seeing that they are here to not just win and qualify for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 but also make a statement. The Netherlands batsmen will have their work cut out for them against the likes of Kemar Roach, Jason Holder, Carlos Brathwaite and Kesrick Williams, and how they fare in that battle will go a long way in determining their fate in the tournament.
Squads: The Netherlands: Peter Borren (c), Wesley Barresi (wk), Ben Cooper, Bas de Leede, Scott Edwards, Vivian Kingma, Fred Klaassen, Max O'Dowd, Pieter Seelaar, Shane Snater, Ryan ten Doeschate, Timm van der Gugten, Roelof van der Merwe, Paul van Meekeren, Sikander Zulfiqar.
Windies: Jason Holder (c), Jason Mohammed, Devendra Bishoo, Carlos Brathwaite, Sheldon Cottrell, Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope (wk), Evin Lewis, Nikita Miller, Ashley Nurse, Rovman Powell, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels, Kesrick Williams.

Commentary (Netherlands innings)

That's it from us today! Netherlands have been knocked out of the tournament and so UAE and Ireland go through to Super Six stage from this group. Join us on 15th March for the first match of that between Windies and Zimbabwe at 0930 local time(0730 GMT). Till then ta-ta!

Jason Holder, the Windies captain, first credits the partnership between Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis for the start. Reckons that due to some useful contribution from Marlon Samuels in the middle, they were well placed at the halfway stage in the game. Lauds his team's bowling for keeping them in the game.

Peter Borren, the Netherlands skipper, says that they always wanted to chase as the wicket was pretty flat. Concedes that they didn't hit the deck hard enough. He lauds the fielding of Windies saying that the run outs cost them dearly. He states that each of their games have been on different types of wickets and hence adaptation becomes tough. He is proud of his bowlers' effort to come back well with the ball.

Man of the Match, Evin Lewis says that it was important that he and Chris Gayle got off to a start. The plan was that one of them should bat deep and when his partner got out he took it upon him. He adds that the wicket was good throughout. Ends by opining that it is important that they play well from here as they are into the Super Six.

The breakthrough for the Men in Red came via a direct hit by Marlon Samuels from the deep mid-wicket fence. From there, began the downfall and in no time the Orange side were 167/6. Rain was away during this innings until then but as soon as Pieter Seelaar fell, the rain covered Harare Sports Club. No further play was possible then and that was the last of the game. Given the way Windies batted, there was hardly some doubt of the final outcome. Stay with us for the presentation.

Right then! Not the way the Windies would have liked to finish the game. They bowled well to take six Dutch wickets and would have liked to come out again to complete the formalities. After setting a huge target, they got two early wickets but a counter-attack from Ryan ten Doeschate and Wesley Barresi got Netherlands back on track. The duo made a 113-run stand to give them some hopes.

So! That's it. The rain gets its way. The action from the game is over. Windies have won by 54 runs via the DLS method. How true goes the saying, when it comes to nature, we are all mere mortals and nothing more. With this, the Caribbean side progresses to Super Six with a clean slate.

With the departure of Seelaar, comes the rain. It does not look heavy but there are dark clouds covering the stadium. Let's hope that play resumes soon. Stay tuned for further updates.

28.4 K Williams to P Seelaar, OUT! Netherlands lose another wicket. Change of pace by Williams gets the better of Seelaar. He delivers a slow full ball, Seelaar is early into his flick, the ball goes of the inner half and flies to mid-wicket. Chris Gayle stationed there takes a simple catch. The Dutch need 143 in 116 balls. Looks very difficult now. 167/6

Pieter Seelaar is next to bat.

25.4 A Nurse to van der Merwe, OUT! The dangerous van der Merwe has to depart. Great bowling from Nurse and he beats the batsman. Tosses this one up and gets the perfect amount of spin on it.

Roelof van der Merwe walks in next.

24.3 C Brathwaite to ten Doeschate, OUT! Wicket off the Free Hit! This is a bonus for the Windies. Ryan ten Doeschate looks to blast it away but ends up slicing it towards covers. He immediately calls for two. Nurse gets there from point and returns a throw to Brathwaite who whips off the bails at his end even as Peter Borren dives to get in. Carlos is up and running in celebration as the TV umpire is called. One look is enough to say that Borren is short of the crease. Netherlands lose one more wicket to a run out, not helping themselves. 147/4

There is an appeal for run out which has been referred up. The Windies think they have got their man.

Free hit coming up.

24.3 C Brathwaite to ten Doeschate, This is bowled outside off, Ryan fails to get bat to that. However, one arm of the umpire is out, signaling a no ball. The reason is, there are less than required fielders in the ring. 146/3

Peter Borren is the new man in.

23.4 A Nurse to ten Doeschate, OUT! Oh Boy! Wesley Barresi is well short of his crease. And the Windies have broken this crucial partnership. Ryan works this through mid-wicket and wants two. Barresi responds. Samuels the fielder in the deep, has one stump to aim at from the boundary and a flat and direct throw gets the better of Barresi at the bowler's end. The umpire doesn't bother going up and raises his finger straightaway. 142/3
