Ryan’s Century ended in vain as Collingwood Rescued England March 1, 2011

ICC Cricket World Cup 2011

Pool (B) Match 05:

England Vs Netherlands:

Nagpur 22/02/2011:

Netherlands opted to bat on a shining batting paradise , A 36 run opening Stand was provided by their openers was not a bad start against England ,which has  shown a very dominant last 24 months of ODI Cricket, in the first 12 overs Netherlands were 60/2 ,but Ryan Ten Doeschate hold one end & displayed  great temperant & confidence against a very resolute bowling line-up ,he has  carried his innings along while having some appreciable partnerships with Cooper , De Grooth & skipper borren. This strategy not only facilitated him in reaching his 4th Century but also aided his team to reach a giant total of 292 against England ,Netherlands ended up with 292/6 in 50 overs with Ryan Ten Doeschate as the principal scorer with 119 runs with 3 massive sixes and 9 fours ,England knew that they can chase this total because Netherlands wont have an experienced bowling attack & the dew factor will result in their favor , England maintained a steady run-rate right from the first ball ,Strauss looked positive & inspiring while pietersen looked a bit shaky & wobbly. Openers provided England a 105 Opening Stand followed by some fine fifty partnerships between Strauss/Trott & Trott/Bell. At 241 when an excellent delivery from Mudassir knocked the middle & leg stump of Ian bell, it appears as Netherlands would come back & restrict England from accomplishing their target but Collingwood’s brilliance stand against them & some consolidated blows by Ravi Bopara finishes the game with 8 balls to spare for England. Despite of being on the loosing side Ryan Ten Doeschate was awarded the Man of the Match Award for exhibiting a brilliant innings of 119 & getting 2/47 in his 10 overs, if he carries his potentials in the identical manner he could be a prominent All-Rounder of future, If Netherlands could have the services of Dirk Nannes, their former Opening Pace Bowlers things would have been certainly Changed today.
