MATCH SUMMARY

Toss: Netherlands opted to field

Tom Latham was the architect of the victory. New Zealand were in dire straits against the sprightly opponents, reduced to 89/6 within 23 overs. However, Latham played the ultimate captain’s knock, his 123-ball 140* reviving the hosts and eventually taking them to a mammoth 264/9.

His knock – it was his career-best score in ODI cricket – was laced with 10 fours and five sixes. It was his birthday, and he couldn’t have rung in his thirties any better.

Netherlands faltered in their chase. They were 4/2 within the first two overs – Doug Bracewell and Kyle Jamieson saw off the openers – and thereafter, it was an uphill battle. There was a fighting second-wicket partnership between Vikramjit Singh and Bas de Leede, the duo putting on 77, but they were dismissed for 31 and 37 respectively, and Netherlands had no way back.

They were bundled out for 146 in 34.1 overs, with Michael Bracewell returning figures of 3/21.

Player of the Match: Tom Latham 140* (123)
