Well played Netherlands!! The Dutch have delivered! Knocking off England in Match one of the ICC T20 World Cup 2009.

What a win??

They have now left England in total diarray and shock. England may not even make it past the group stages of this WC now!

Scorecard

If Pakistan beat England,it's more or less the end of the tournament for England.

de Grooth leads Netherlands to famous win

Cricket's rich history of thrilling upsets was given another chapter as Netherlands sensationally beat England by four wickets in the opening match of the ICC World Twenty20 at Lord's. Needing seven off the last over Ryan ten Doeschate and Edgar Schiferli ran for their lives and with two needed off the last delivery, Stuart Broad missed a run-out from his follow through and the resulting overthrow set off wild scenes of celebration.

Jah! Well played Guys! Don't

Jah! Well played Guys! Don't rule out the Irish. They may pull one over a big team as well. This T20 format is getting really exciting, it has narrowed the margin down, anyone can win if they play good cricket.

Lets hope SL can pull of a surprise as well.

Fair play though. The Dutch were fantastic. Tom de Grooth was really good, and Darron Reekers was just brutal with the bat.

All eyes were on Nannes, but the others showed they were not a one man show. IT was good to watch this game and the Windies Australia match. Great start to the tournament.
