10.3OUTA Mendis to Ahsan Malik, out Lbw!! Mendis finishes things off. Netherlands are rolled over for the lowest T20I score. This was the googly on off and middle, Malik does not pick it as he thrusts his pad forward to defend, but the ball hits him low and umpire Reiffel raises his finger quickly. Ahsan Malik lbw b A Mendis 0(2)39/10
10.1OUTA Mendis to Seelaar, out Caught by Mathews!! They are folding like a pack of cards. This was tossed up around off, it goes the other way, Seelaar comes forward to defend, the extra bounce takes the shoulder of the bat and goes to Mathews at slip, he takes a sharp catch diving forward. Seelaar c Mathews b A Mendis 3(3)39/9
10OUTMalinga to Bukhari, out Bowled!! Second in the over for Malinga. Dutch batsmen have no answer to the Sri Lankan bowlers. Another slower full toss on middle and leg, Bukhari stays in the crease and tries to nudge it, the ball deflects off the pads and hits the off-stump. Netherlands are in danger of being bowled out for the lowest T20I total, which is 56. Bukhari b Malinga 4(8)39/8
9.3OUTMalinga to van Beek, out Bowled!! Malinga gets a piece of the action. This was the slower yorker on target as well, van Beek is foxed by the slowness on that, he is early into the shot and the ball sneaks through the bat to hit the base of middle stump. This is just too good for the Dutch batsmen. van Beek b Malinga 1(4)36/7
8.2OUTA Mendis to T Cooper, out Lbw!! It seems to be a procession at Chittagong. This was the skidder from Mendis, Cooper shuffles across to nudge it to the on-side, he misses and is struck on the pads, that looked plumb and umpire Reiffel confirms that. The Hawk-Eye shows that the ball was hitting leg-stump. T Cooper lbw b A Mendis 16(18) [4s-2]33/6
8.1FOURA Mendis to T Cooper, leg byes, FOUR, carrom ball that skids on close to off, Cooper hangs back and misses, the ball goes under his bat and off the pads to the third man fence33/5

5FOURvan der Gugten to M Jayawardene, no ball, FOUR, shortish and outside off, M Jayawardene pulls it hard, the ball goes very fine off the top-edge after evading the leap from the keeper39/1
4.5DROPPEDvan der Gugten to M Jayawardene, no run, Bad drop by Bukhari at mid-on. This was fullish and pushed on middle, M Jayawardene clears his front leg, does not get enough bat onto the lofted drive, he chips it to Bukhari, who tries to clasp his hands around it but shells it34/1
4.4FOURvan der Gugten to M Jayawardene, FOUR, real loosener heading down leg, M Jayawardene glances it deftly and gets it wide of the fieldsman at short fine leg34/1
2.5FOURvan der Gugten to Dilshan, FOUR, Dilshan nails the gap this time. This was fullish and outside off, Dilshan's eyes lit up as he drives it emphatically between extra cover and long off, he timed this one to perfection25/1
2OUTAhsan Malik to K Perera, out Caught by Swart!! Fullish and tailing in on middle, this grips a bit in the pitch as well, K Perera is forced to check his shot as he only chips it tamely, the ball loops to Swart, who pouches it safely at mid-on after diving forward. K Perera c Swart b Ahsan Malik 14(10) [4s-1 6s-1]
1.3SIXAhsan Malik to K Perera, SIX, whacked! This was another filthy one, on the pads, K Perera picks it up from there and short arm jab-pulls it, just about clearing the deep backward square leg fence18/0
