Netherlands shine in the field as Daryl Mitchell walks back

Netherlands have been superb in the field in the opening T20I at Sportpark Westvliet, backing up their bowlers quite well and this was yet another example of their impeccable groundwork. Daryl Mitchell wanted to whip the Shariz Ahmad delivery uppishly on the leg-side, but didn't get the timing right at all and the mishit went low towards the deep mid-wicket region where Max ODowd took a fine tumbling catch. The fact that Mitchell had to yank this from a wider line did him in, so did the two-paced nature of the pitch.
