14:57 - QUOTES
Dutch skipper Peter Borren: "We obviously let this one go. We played across the line to Tahir. It's a real shame. They got off to a flying start and we did well to pull them back. Malik is a fantastic bowler and credit to him. I have to take the responsibility too with my dismissal tonight. I'm miffed with the fact that we didn't get over the line. After our last game I'm glad we stepped up better tonight."
SA captain Faf du Pleesis: "I think we are making it hard for ourselves. It's a great sign when your side is not playing 100% and still gets over the line. Credit to Netherlands for some very good bowling. Tahir and Steyn were outstanding. Credit to young Hendricks for bowling well under pressure. Credit to Netherlands as they played very good cricket for 70% of the game."

14:46 - SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 6 RUNS!
The Proteas get out of jail. Great bowling from Dale Steyn (2 for 19) and Imran Tahir (4 for 21) AGAIN saved the day, but the Dutch were also silly with the way they went about things. They had ample balls in hand, so just needed to defend against Steyn and Tahir, but clearly a lack of experience at this level cost them.
No doubt the Proteas have much to ponder though, with the bowling of Morkel (This time Albie!) and Tsotsobe hugely concerning...
They next face England on Saturday (15:30 start).
14:44 - WICKET! Van der Gugten is out for 8, caught behind after edging short a Hendricks delivery.

They have safely negotiated Steyn's final over. He finished with 2/19 in four overs.
14 runs to win off 18 balls.
14:30 - SA going for it all now as Steyn comes on to bowl his final over... He must strike as the rest to come after him haven't looked like taking wickets.
14:29 - OVERS 16: Netherlands 128/8.
18 runs needed off 24 balls.
14:26 - WICKET! Van Beek runs himself out after trying to take a suicidal two...

14:24 - OVERS 15: Netherlands 120/7.

14:07 - OVERS 12: Netherlands 114/4.
13 off that last Morkel over...

13:45 - Duminy the new bowler on.
13:44 - OVERS 7: Netherlands 68/1.
Only five off the last Tahir over. SA could have done with spin earlier...

13:41 - Leg-spinner Imran Tahir is now into the attack. He will be key to the outcome of the game...
13:40 - OVERS 6: Netherlands 63/1.

10:42 - STATS AND TRVIA
- South Africa and Netherlands have never played a T20 match against one another but they have met in four ODIs. The Dutch have lost all of them with the smallest margin separating the two sides a gulf of 83 runs.
- There are three South African born players in the Dutch squad: Stephan Myburgh, Wesley Barresi and Eric Szwarczynski. Of those, Myburgh and Barresi played in the South African structures but Szwarcynski did not.
10:41 - QUOTES
"The days of big nations rocking up and thinking there are easy games in T20 cricket are gone. The shorter the game, the more opportunity there is for one or two guys gave to take the game away." - Underestimating the Associates is not something Faf du Plessis is willing to do.
"I believe in this team and I hope we can show that in the next three games. It certainly won't be a case of damage limitation. I want to put a lot of onus and responsibility on the top six and see how many overs we can bat, that's really important." - Although Peter Borren was embarrassed by the Netherlands' defeat to Sri Lanka, he said the team will not skulk into the shells for the rest of their matches.
