What a series this has been. The Dutch came out on top to seal the victory on the day as well as the series. They would be really happy to get 20 points in the Super League board. The Irish they would be disappointed with their performance. That is a wrap up from our side though. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. Until next time, take care and goodbye!

Pieter Seelaar says you can be happy, they wanted to play for 30 points but they are very happy with the 20 points. Adds that it was a good toss to lose, the wicket got tougher as the game progressed and it was crucial to get those three wickets first up. Mentions Logan changed the game or Ireland were looking on course for 220. Also says Fred has been brilliant, he was suppose to go back to England but he stayed back and was brilliant. Ends by saying he is very proud of the Myburgh played and he showed fantastic maturity and he set the tone with the bat.

Andy Balbirnie says they won the toss on a wicket which did not misbehave a lot. States they were looking at 200 but lost their way. Adds they were outplayed and deserved to win. Mentions Tector and Dockrell built a good stand but they could not build on it and are very disappointed. Adds the wicket did not change a lot and that is the challenge, they need to adapt. Ends by saying there were no excuses and they were not good enough.

Myburgh says you needed to graft it out on this wicket, they looked to score today and that is probably the right way to play on this wicket. States they have made them to bowl to them as they played very defensive in the last games but today they were a lot more positive. Adds he should have stayed there till the end and he feels bad about that.

Logan Van beek, the player of the series -  says it was a lot of shocker  to come out victorious and adds that a lot of players did a very good job over the series. Adds that he just wanted to make an impact in the series, and after getting Stiling out early really pumped up the boys in the first innings. Says that getting the wicket of Tector was a game changer and it feels really nice. Also says that its hard to get a batsman out when he settled in. Praises the boys for their performance. Adds that he is very delighted to get off to a great start in the Super League and get 20 points of the first series and hopes to build on this performance. 

The Ireland bowling and fielding did not begin that well. They weren't at their best. Everybody bowled well in parts but that won't win you a game when you are defending a small total. Overall, it was an under par performance. 

The openers got them off to the perfect start. They did lose a few wickets in the middle but Bas and Myburgh's partnership took them to the brink of victory. There was a procession towards the end as well but it was too little too late by then.

It was their bowlers who set this up for them by bowling out the Irish for a below par score and then their batters ensured their effort does not go in vain.

A clinical performance from the Dutch to seal the series. Not many would have given them a chance of winning the series at the start but they have done so and brilliantly.
