10:46 AM Both sides now head to the UAE to complete their preparations for the qualifier, with the climax of this series still to come this afternoon. This is Rod Lyall saying goodbye for now.
10:45 AM Glover finishes with four for 26, but overall it was a great team effort from the Netherlands which gave them a much-needed win to complete their series.
10:43 AM A fine innings by Haroon Arshad and a valuable 72-run partnership with Shahid Wasif, but the outcome was never really in doubt once Brandon Glover had removed the openers, and notably the dangerous Nizakat Khan.

7:17 AM Hong Kong have, of course, been forced to do some radical rebuilding of their side, but for the Netherlands, not far short of full strength, this tournament has been a very disappointing experience so far. No doubt Ryan Campbell will be looking for a much more convincing effort today.
7:15 AM These two sides are both without a win so far, and this is their last chance to head to the UAE and the WT20Q with a win under their belts.
7:12 AM Pieter Seelar has called incorrectly, and Kinchit Shah has elected to field first. The Dutch have made one change to the side which lost so disappointingly against Oman yesterday, Timm van der Gugten making his first appearance of the tournament in a straight swap with Paul van Meekeren.
7:10 AM Once again good morning (etc.) to you all, and welcome to CricketEurope's live coverage of the final match of this T20I series for Hong Kong and the Netherlands.
