8:20 PM But for now, this is Rod Lyall saying we hope you've enjoyed our coverage of this series, and goodbye from Hazelaarweg in Rotterdam.
8:19 PM The A team now has the Continental Cup tournament ahead of it, but for the main squad the next action is the Intercontinental Cup match against Ireland in August. Then on to Nairobi and the WCL Championship matches against Kenya.
8:17 PM But coach Ryan Campbell has blooded a number of locally-based (and -produced) players, and will no doubt feel he knows a good deal more about his squad than he did a month ago.
8:16 PM It's been a keenly contested series, but the UAE were well worth their 2-1 series win. Their batting was more solid, although they, too, struggled today. And with the exception of Paul van Meekeren, and Logan van Beek today, the Dutch bowlers had less penetration than the UAE's seamers.
8:13 PM And, believe it or not, it's started raining again even as groundsman René van Ieschot is working to put the pitch to bed.
8:12 PM Well, that turned out to be pretty tense, arguably a lot tenser than it should have been. With only Myburgh and O'Dowd reaching double figures, the Dutch scorecard looks quite meagre, although to be fair the Emirati bowlers stuck to their task well and the fielding was largely keen. Two silly run-outs didn't help the Dutch cause.
27.5 Mustafa to O'Dowd, FOUR But crucially, they'd crossed, and O'Dowd hammers the next ball through extra cover to win the match!

4:26 PM That's been a very convincing performance with the ball by the Dutch attack, Van Beek especially. His 6-18 are the best bowling figures ever by a Dutch bowler in a List A match, surpassing Mudassar Bukhari's 6-24 against the same opponents in Abu Dhabi last year.

2:29 PM Van Beek to start from the Airport End, bowling to Rohan Mustafa, in sunshine!
2:27 PM The Dutch go into the now-obligatory huddle as the umpires make their way out.
2:21 PM The UAE make two changes, bringing in Zahoor Khan and Imran Haider for Ahmed Raza and Mohammad Naveed.
2:18 PM The team news from the Dutch camp is that Shane Snater and Sikander Zulfiqar are again omitted, and that Umar Baker makes way for his VOC teammate Max O'Dowd.
2:06 PM Er wordt getosst! The toss has taken place! And Peter Borren, having again won it, and has elected to field.
2:00 PM The toss will be at five past two, and we're still looking at a 14:30 start for a 37-over match.
1:54 PM The covers are coming off again. [Smiley face.]
1:52 PM If a seven-second conversation can be called a conclave.
1:48 PM And as the umpires were having their next look, a sharp shower came from pretty much nowhere. Covers back on, but the teams continue warming up. Umpires and captains go into conclave.
1:26 PM They've had another look, and have agreed to give it another quarter of an hour. So they'll check again at 13:45, and aim to toss at 14:00, starting a 37-over match at 14:30. We live in hope.
1:12 PM The shower came to nothing, happily, and they've taken the covers off again so the drying process can continue. Lunch is currently being taken.
12:45 PM And I'm afraid the 12:25 shower has arrived, a quarter of an hour late, it's true, but no less wet for that. It's pretty light at the moment, though, and the covers are on. Fingers crossed!
12:16 PM Meanwhile, as a precaution, the covers are going back on.
12:15 PM We have a plan. Lunch will be taken early, and there will then be an inspection to ensure that the pitch is playable. If all is well, the toss will take place at 13:30, with a view to starting a 40-over match at 14:00.
11:36 AM But the good news is that the black clouds which had been building up in the west have blown past, and the sun is now shining.
11:35 AM There will be another inspection at 12:00, we have been informed. That wet patch at the far end is clearly proving resistant to treatment.
11:06 AM The umpires have carried out their 11:00 inspection, and return with the news that they'll have another look at 11:30.
11:00 AM There is, of course, nothing except pride riding on this game, the UAE having gone two-up in the series. In the matches against Zimbabwe the Dutch saved their best performance for the final game, achieving a consolation victory, and Borren and Campbell will be hoping for something similar here.
10:46 AM We have some news! The ground is still in the hands of the groundsman, and there is a damp patch towards the City End, which is currently being worked on with a blower. The umpires will have a look at 11:00, and at half-hourly intervals thereafter (which doesn't sound too optimistic for the immediate future).
10:31 AM We evidently have a delayed toss, since Peter Borren hasn't changed yet and is deep in conversation with coach Ryan Campbell at the City End.
10:21 AM It's dry at the moment, but it looks as if we'll be lucky to get away without some interruptions in the course of the day.
10:18 AM The action at the moment is mostly the consequence of the heavy shower which passed through half an hour or so ago: they've removed the covers, and at the moment the ground staff are dragging a net around the outfield to help the surface water drain away. They've just rolled the pitch, and there's a lot of careful inspection going on.
10:15 AM Good morning (or afternoon, or evening), everyone, and welcome to our unique live coverage of the third and final match in the one-day series between the Netherlands and the UAE. We're at Hazelaarweg in Rotterdam today, and it's Rod Lyall who'll be bringing you all the action.
