    LOL, what an upset. Haven't seen the highlights yet, but I'm very happy for the Dutch.

    I have a Dutch passport, so a few years ago I had the chance to get into the Netherlands side. I decided that cricket probably wasn't going to be a great career move, as I'd have to at least play for a decent club side or one of the provinces here.
    I wouldn't be able to make it into one of the bigger unions, so I'd have relocate and play for a smaller union. Club cricket here doesn't really pay, so I could always go into English county cricket.
    I decided to hang up the pads.

    NOW I'm pissed I did that!
