Netherlands coach Ryan Campbell was clearly happy as his side brushed off the winter cobwebs with a seven-wicket win over Scotland in the opening match of the Quadrangular tournament in Muscat.
The win wasn't plain sailing though, with the Dutch attack fighting back after Scotland got off to a flier, and their chase stuttered a little as the finishing line approached, taking until the penultimate ball of the game.
"To start the series with a win is fantastic, I think both teams would admit to being a bit rusty," Campbell told CricketEurope.
"I was extremely pleased with the way we went about it, especially after the first two overs when George Munsey was threatening to take the game away from us.
"We didnít panic and our bowling group rebounded brilliantly. In saying that we still needed to bat well and Tobias Visee and Stef Myburgh gave us the perfect start. Stef has missed a lot of cricket through injury and bounced back really well." T
Campbell also paid tribute to Visee, a previously unheralded batsmen in the Dutch ranks.
"Tobias is a unique talent and we have extremely high hopes for him as an opener leading into the T20 World Cup Qualifiers.
"The game may have ended in the 20th over but I felt we always had the chase in hand."
The Netherlands face the hosts on Friday, before ending the tournament on Sunday with a clash against Ireland, and Campbell admitted he will ring the changes to give all the squad game time.
"We now look to play against Oman and we will continue to make changes and look to give players opportunities in our quest to find our best combination ahead of the qualifiers later this year."
