What a game. Few who were there will forget what they saw today in Harare as Netherlands pulled of a heist against the West Indies. It took the fourth highest ODI total batting second and a Super Over to do it, but the Dutch did it.

Put into bat the West Indies had scored 374-6 with Nicholas Pooran scoring an unbeaten 104. Only once in ODIs has a team scored higher than that to win an ODI, so it seemed a long shot for the Netherlands.

But despite fielding a near second string side due to several players remaining with their counties, the Dutch battled hard. First, Vikramjit Singh and Max O'Dowd put on 76 for the first wicket in 10.4 overs before O'Dowd was out for 36 from 36 balls. Singh followed soon afterwards for 37 from 32 balls.

When Bas de Leede was the fourth man out from the first ball of the 30th over, the Netherlands were on 170 and still needed 205 to win. It looked a long shot. But Teja Nidamanuru and Scott Edwards put on 143 for the fifth wicket before Edwards was out from the first ball of the 45th over to give the Dutch a sniff.

But when Nidamanuru was out from the last ball of the 46th over having scored a career best 111, it was looking unlikely with 47 needed from the last four overs. With 17 from the next two overs, thirty were needed from the last two. Logan van Beek though, who went for 77 from his ten overs in the West Indies innings earlier, had other ideas.

After a wide started the penultimate over, he went 4, 6, 4 before a single brought Aryan Dutt on strike. After a dot came another wide and Dott then hit the last ball of the over for four to leave nine needed from the last over.

Van Beek started the over well with another four, followed by a single to bring Dutt back on strike. But Dutt holed out to long-off, leaving four required from three balls. Clayton Floyd scampered through for a bye to get van Beek back on strike and van Beek ran two to bring the scores level.

But the game had another twist - van Beek tried to hit the ball over mid-on but was superbly caught by Jason Holder diving to his right and taking the catch at full stretch. The third umpire checked the front foot and adjudged the delivery a legitimate one, and the game was tied.

But that wasn't it, as the playing conditions warranted a Super Over.

And what a Super Over it was. Netherlands started with van Beek and Scott Edwards but Edwards wasn't required. Van Beek went 4, 6, 4, 6, 6, 4. Thirty runs, a record for a Super Over in international cricket. Van Beek, was then chosen to bowl for the West Indies over - and went for a six from the first ball.

But he pulled it back with singles from the next two balls followed by two wickets in two to secure a remarkable win. The second wicket van Beek took in the Super Over was Romario Shepherd who had earlier got a golden duck in the West Indies innings - surely the first player to get a king pair in an ODI?

Logan van Beek was the obvious choice for man of the match after his Super Over heroics in which he secured a famous win over the team his grandfather Sammy Guillen first played international cricket for. Guillen later played for New Zealand and with van Beek having already played for New Zealand A, he could also be making a switch in the not too distant future.

The Dutch will be delighted to have him for now though as they go into the Super Six with two points carried forward. West Indies meanwhile face an uphill battle as they head into the Super Six with no points.
