Netherlands scored 103 runs for 9 wickets
Earlier, the bowlers led by Otniel Bartman, Marco Jensen and Enrique Norkia restricted South Africa to 103 runs for 9 wickets due to their brilliant performance. Bartman took four wickets for 11 runs in four overs. In which he took three wickets for just one run in the last over. Norkia took two wickets for 19 runs and Jensen took two wickets for 20 runs. The Netherlands team was in a very bad situation after losing six wickets for 48 runs, but Sybrand Engelbrecht (40) and Logan van Beek (23) took the team's score beyond 100 runs by sharing 54 runs in 45 balls for the seventh wicket.

Engelbrecht hit one six in his 45-ball innings
Engelbrecht hit two fours and a six in his 45-ball innings, while Van Beek hit three fours in his 22-ball innings. Vikramjit Singh (12) and captain Scott Edwards (10) were among the four batsmen to score in double figures. South Africa, which lost to the Dutch team by 38 runs in last year's 50-over World Cup, did not want to take any risk this time and kept a tight grip on the Netherlands from the very first over.

Netherlands lost 3 wickets for 20 runs
After being sent to bat first, Johnson dismissed Michael Levitt (0). However, wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock also had a hand in this wicket. The ball touched the bat and went into his gloves but the bowler did not appeal. De Kock asked captain Aiden Markram to take a review and after the replay, the decision of the field umpire was changed. Bartman sent Max O'Dowd to the pavilion in the fourth over while Johnson sent Vikramjit to the pavilion in the fifth over. In the power play, the Netherlands team could score only 20 runs for three wickets.

Edwards ends 64-ball boundary drought with a six

However, he was run out on the next ball on Markram's throw. In the same over, Teja Nidamanuru was also out without making any contribution with the bat. After this, Engelbrecht batted cautiously from one end and took the team's score past 50 runs in the 13th over. He hit a four against Keshav Maharaj in the 15th over which was the team's only third boundary. He and Van Beek accelerated the run rate a bit by hitting a four each in the 17th over. Both of them completed the team's century of runs by scoring 15 runs against Rabada in the 19th over. This included Engelbrecht's six and Van Beek's four. Bartman dismissed both batsmen along with Tim Pringle (0) in the final over to restrict the Netherlands to 103.
