(Video) Akeal Hosein tightens the screws on Netherlands

Akeal Hosein snapped up two wickets to peg Netherlands back after the hosts got off to a promising start thanks to Vikramjit Singh’s breezy 47. The left-arm spinner trapped both Singh and Musa Ahmed plumb in front of the wickets before rain interrupted play.

The downpour has gotten heavier and the umpires have decided to stop play. The hover cover is coming on but first the hessian is being used to cover the pitch. It is really belting down as the groundsmen cover the square at the VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen where West Indies are taking on Netherlands in the ODI series opener.
