Netherlands will be pleased with their effort in the 3rd ODI. Not only have they found a way to restrict Pakistan to a sub-par score, they’ve also managed to bundle them out on a pitch that is not too inconducive to run-scoring. Pakistan had two promising stands for the second and the third wickets, but in both those cases, the batsmen took their time to settle in, and then departed when they needed to push on. Babar Azam, through a scratchy innings, managed a 91, and apart from that, there wasn’t much from the middle order. Kingma struck early, Dutt kept it nice and tight in the middle-overs, Cooper and Ahamd chipped in, before de Leede came back in and cleaned the tail up.
