Ryan ten Doeschate played elegant shots, England v Netherlands, Group B, World Cup, Nagpur, February 22, 2011
Netherlands player Ryan ten Doeschate showed his Excellency in both departments as England outfit were feeble at one stage during the batting of Netherlands. Ryan ten Doeschate produced a sparkling 119 from 110 balls, and followed up with the brilliant bowling figures of 2 for 47 in ten over, to give England one of the biggest frights of their international tours. However, his most excellent efforts were not quite enough to push the Netherlands to an implausible victory in their World Cup opener at Nagpur.
Andrew Strauss strikes one square of the wicket, England v Netherlands, Group B, World Cup, Nagpur, February 22, 2011Faced with a gigantic target of 293, and mortification on an even greater scale than they suffered at Lord's two years ago, England retorted with a determined batting performance under the floodlights, and thanks to collected half-centuries from Andrew Strauss and Jonathan Trott, they finally reached safety with six wickets and eight balls to unused. However, the final fringe of triumph did no justice to the journey they were forced to undertake. England could be staggered; it would surely have gone down as the greatest upset in World Cup history.
The final over were laden with possibility, as England battled with a run-rate that barely dipped below seven an over, against a pumped-up team of performers who could route their adrenalin straight from that opening fixture of the World Twenty20. England required 69 from the final ten overs, Trott was delicately stumped off a leg-side wide by Wesley Barresi, who had earlier launched the Dutch innings with a spark cameo of 29 from 25 balls, and when the in-form Ian Bell was bowled middle stump by the final ball of ten Doeschate's spell, Nagpur really was living up to its standing as the City of Orange.
