commentary

That's all we have from this encounter. The ODI debutants - Nepal - dominated for the bulk of the match, but capitulated against spin. They have a chance to rectify their mistakes in their next match on Friday. Can they level the series. Don't forget to join us. Until then, it's goodbye.

18:00 Local Time, 16:00 GMT, 21:30 IST: Nepal lost their last nine wickets for just 49 runs. Chasing a target of 190, the visitors got off to a positive start - courtesy their openers Anil Sah and Gyanendra Malla - who were involved in a fifty partnership. Even after the former's downfall, Malla continued to play his shots and he became Nepal's first half-centurion in ODIs. Just when the skipper and Malla were threatening to take the match away from the hosts, the spin twins - Michael Rippon and Pieter Seelaar - changed the complexion of the match. The chase got derailed there and Nepal never recovered from there. Klaassen, Rippon and Seelaar all picked three wickets apiece. From 85/1, they got bundled out for 134.

Fred Klaassen to Anil Sah, out Caught by Barresi!! There's the breakthrough Netherlands were looking for. A full ball angled across the right-hander. Was a wide one and Sah went after it with a drive. The feet were movement and he gets a thick outside edge that carries to first slip. Barresi hops and cups it over his head. Is the openeing the hosts were looking for? Anil Sah c Barresi b Fred Klaassen 21(32) [4s-3]
