The Netherlands found it hard to stand still in front of the Proteas pacers. Ottneil Baartman removed another opener ODowd from the crease in the fourth over.

After the second dismissal of the game, the Netherlands kept on losing quick wickets and by the end of the 12th over the Dutch side were at 48/6. Scott Edwards' side found it hard to cross the 50-run mark, but Sybrand Engelbrecht (40 runs from 45 balls, 2 fours and 1 six) and Logan van Beek (23 runs from 22 balls, 3 fours) added a few crucial runs on the scoreboard by making a crucial partnership.

After the end of the 12th over, Engelbrecht and Van Beek made a partnership of 54 runs as South Africa found it hard to bag wickets in the middle overs. However, in the final over of the first inning, Netherlands lost three wickets as Ottneil Baartman removed Engelbrecht, Tim Pringle, and van Beek all in one over.

Baartman led the Proteas bowling attack by picking up four wickets and stopped the Dutch side to 103/9. While Jansen and Nortje bagged two wickets each in their respective spell.

The Proteas need to make 104 runs to win the match.

Brief score: Netherlands 103/9 (Sybrand Engelbrecht 40, Logan van Beek 23, Vikramjit Singh 12; Ottneil Baartman 4/11) vs South Africa.
