The Netherlands began their Super-10 campaign in Group 1 with a humiliating defeat against Sri Lanka, who wrapped up their innings for a record low total of 39. Peter Borren's side then fell to their second defeat against South Africa by six runs, not before putting up a little fight.

In the opening innings, the Proteas managed to score 145 runs in 20 overs losing nine wickets. Ahasn Malik was the star bowler for the Netherlands taking five wickets conceding just 19 runs in four overs.

Starting the chase strongly, the Dutch lost their first wicket of Michael Swart (8) with 58 on the board, but their tumble began after losing opener Stephan Myburgh when the total was 80. The latter's knock of 51 was the only bright spot as the Dutch lost their remaining eight wickets adding only 59 runs.

New Zealand too suffered defeat against South Africa in their previous T20 fixture as they fell short by just two runs.

Faf du Plessis's side scored 170 losing six wickets courtesy of JP Duminy's unbeaten knock of 86. The Black Caps started brightly with openers Kane Williamson and Martin Guptill (22) posting a 57-run partnership for the first wicket, the latter being the first to be dismissed.

Williamson completed his half-century scoring 51 runs before falling to Albie Morkel. Ross Taylor too hit the ground running and scored 62 but was run out in the last ball of the innings attempting to salvage a tie; before this, five of his compatriots were unable to add more than 27 runs.

They lost eight wickets for 168 leaving them third in the table with just two points.

This is a must win game for New Zealand if they intend to give themselves a chance of progressing into the semi-finals.

The Netherlands showed that they cannot be underestimated and having displayed a little fight in their previous game, they will be hoping to do better to obtain their first win in the tournament.
