Today England Played against Netherlands. It was the game that could have created another history in the World Cup Cricket. A history of major upsets.
England played a lesser known team Netherlands. But none the less peremptorily, Netherlands played beautifully to score a massive 292 runs in stipulated 50 over match. Thanks to Ryan Ten Doeschate. He shone for Holland both in batting and bowling department. With Century on one hand and 2 precious English wickets on the other. His patience is worthy of admiration. A truly deserved Man of Match.
One of the top class teams of cricket world, England had to toil hard to make those 292 runs. Andrew Strauss’s effort was commendable but he fell an easy prey to the powers of folly. Finally Collingwood and Ravi Bopara made it to the end. However, Bowlers again failed badly. Bowlers, save Broad and Swann, gave easy run to Netherlands’ batsmen.
Next England is playing India on 27th Feb at Bangalore. Lets hope that the next match is breath-taking. May the best Side Win !
