The threadbare Netherlands batting line-up was again on display today in Qatar as Scott Edwards again seemed to be the only Dutch batter capable of chasing down what was another low total.

The wicket-keeper top scored with 86 opening the batting and the only other score of note in the Dutch run chase was Bas de Leede's 34. The latter took far too much time to make those runs, with 34 from 83 being an innings more at home in the longer form of the game than in a limited overs run chase.

After de Leede was the third man out - in the 35th over - Edwards fell with 11 overs remaining and thus put paid to any hopes the Dutch had of chasing the runs. The lower order struggled to put bat on ball, especially against Rashid Khan who was almost too good for them and deserved more than a solitary wicket.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman, who took a wicket in the early stages of the Dutch innings, polished off the tail with three wickets in four balls to start the 48th over to finish with 4-32 and bowl the Dutch out for 189.

Earlier, Rahmanullah Gurbaz top scored for the Afghans with 103, whilst captain Hashmatullah Shahidi made 54 as Afghanistan scored 237-6. It wouldn't have been enough against most teams in the CWC Super League, but against this weakened Dutch line-up was quite easily enough to ensure a 48 run win.

The teams meet again on Tuesday with the series result already decided but there are still CWC Super League points up for grabs.
