Vivian Kingma and Paul van Meekeren's new-ball burst reduced Ireland Wolves to 10 for 5, and unlike Tuesday there was to be no comeback against a ruthless Dutch attack.

James McCollum, Stephen Doheny, William Porterfield, Harry Tector were all back in the hutch with their individual scores of 0,0,0,2,5 the international dialing code for Somalia.

A shell-shocked Ireland never really recovered despite the best efforts of Shane Getkate, who top scored with 32, and Craig Young who thumped a rapid 30 from 21 balls - his highest List-A score. 

94 all out with more than 16 overs unused in a contest reduced to 40 overs after a two-hour rain delay is not a display that they will want to dwell on.

While the bowling was hostile at times, the top order's shot selection certainly contributed to some of their downfalls.

Kingma had the excellent analysis of 5-3-5-3, enough to earn him the Man-of-the-Match accolade, while Van Meekeren (2-28) and Aryaan Dutt (2-11) both claimed a brace.

 

Man-of-the-Match Vivian Kingma took 3 for 5

Logan van Beek (1-17) , Phillipe Boissevain (1-5) and Vikram Singh (1-6) the other successful bowlers.

The Dutch lost two early wickets with Young and Graeme McCarter removing Vikram Singh (0) and Ben Cooper (5), but experienced opener Stephan Myburgh (23) and skipper Scott Edwards stabilised the innings.

Myburgh and Bas de Leede fell in quick succession, but Edwards' unbeaten 36 coupled with a rapid 33 in just 16 balls (4 fours, 2 sixes) from Tobias Visee saw the visitors win by five wickets in the 17th over to level the series.

Chase (2-31) and McCarter (2-36) were the most successful of the Irish attack.

The teams meet again at the same venue on Thursday in the series decider (10:45am). Can the Wolves show the same reaction that came from the Oranje today?
