Originally posted by FMFI'd be amazed, but then, we've already beaten the Limeys once in the small forms of the game, and drawn them once, too. Both, I believe, in World Cups. The Dutch cricket team will never be a Test team, but you can't fault them for trying their best and providing value for money.
Netherlands 135/6 (20/20 ov);
Canada 93 (16.4/20 ov)
Netherlands won by 42 runs
There was some doubt about Rizwan Cheema's (Canada) LBW decision in his dismissal for 0. He averages 24.37 in ODIs so a typical knock from him might have reduced the margin of Netherlands' victory to 18, although it's just speculation.

Aussie fans must be pretty worried about the state of the ODI squad seeing these games against the Windies.
Looking like they will lose this game, after they could easily have been down 3-0 to a Windies side without Chris Gayle there.
Are alarm bells sounding?
I know Clarke is not playing and where is Bollinger etc.? Watson is only now returning from injury?

Dont fancy your chances at the Oval then?
Originally posted by CrowleySo how many south Africans in the bowling line up that are going to smash S.As top order. The South Africans in either team playing well is always a big IF.

The only people who can stop the South Africans, are the South Africans in the English team. If they perform well, the English may have a chance.
I thought we had to win the series to go to no.1?
