Diepeveen spares Netherlands blushes

Batsman Wilfred Diepeveen stood firm as the Netherlands found life tough on day one of their ICC Intercontinental Cup match against Scotland at Deventer

Batsman Wilfred Diepeveen stood firm as the Netherlands found life tough on day one of their ICC Intercontinental Cup match against Scotland at Deventer.

The 24-year-old, making his first-class debut, contributed 72 not out from a total of 210 all out.

Number 11 batsman Berend Westdijk gave Diepeveen crucial support as he made 17 out of a 10th-wicket stand of 64.

The Scotland attack dominated for much of the day with Matthew Parker the pick of the bowlers (4-64). The 20-year-old was backed up well by Gordon Drummond, who recorded the outstanding figures of 2-19 from 13 overs, and spinner Majid Haq (3-45).

Parker wrapped up the innings just before the close, when he bowled Westdijk, leaving Scotland?s openers with a tricky six overs to survive.

Drew Lockhart failed to see the day out as Westdijk removed him for 5 as Scotland ended the day on 16-1 in reply.
