That brings us to the end of the coverage of this fantastic encounter between the Netherlands and the West Indies. The Netherlands have created history by defeating West Indies in the Super Over.

Do join us for all the upcoming games from all around the globe. For now, it's me Hitesh Peddurwar signing off along with my co-commentator AkshayaKrishna Polya and scorer/analyst Dushyant Madhukar Kumar. Until then stay safe and have a wonderful weekend...
Scott Edwards(Netherlands Skipper): " Yeah, it's still soaking in a little bit, I don't think so I have witnessed a better individual cricket game than that. You know there were lots of ups and downs in the game, I thought they batted really well and there were periods in which we bowled well. They are really powerful team if they are only four wickets down then they are going to get the runs in the death overs.

The belief we have among the group is really good, we knew we need to bat well. The innings by Teja and what Logan did, in the end, were pretty special. Yeah, well deserved.

[On fast running between the wickets]Yeah, I think that's the one thing we pride ourselves on, in the last 18 months we have worked really hard to get super fit and do that sort of thing, you know you just need to hit in the gaps and run hard.

Yeah, Logan was in a bit of a trans, I don't think he was hearing anything I tried to keep him calm. He kept his head down and was smacking the balls for sixes. With the ball, he did well by closing the game. Super proud of him.

This was going to be a massive game for us and we played well and good that we grabbed two points."
Shai Hope (West Indies Captain): "What do you feel? Just disappointments after today's display. I can't see ourselves scoring 374 and losing it. We just let ourselves down. We batted well and scored 374 runs. It was a huge score and you just back yourselves to defend that, isn't it? You also need to do well in both halves of the innings which we didn't. Honestly thought it was enough. But the bowlers didn't do their job. 375 is way too much to chase but they played well and credit to Netherlands.

It is unfortunate that we lost. See, we now know what's the picture. It is right in front of us. We have seen in through repeatedly and now it's high time. We need to learn from mistakes and get back hard moving forward."
Logan van Beek (Player of the Match): "No... I really can't describe what I am feeling. Just watched Scott and Teja batting wonderfully and just involved in the game. It was incredible. I have been playing for Netherlands for years now and it was a great game. Have been playing for 13-14 years now. Amount of matches I have lost in that situation, it's so satisfying to get one over the line. I'll wait 13-14 years to do it again.


With Jason Holder bowling the Super Over, I just thought of hitting well if he misses. And that is what I did. Feels great. I was disappointed with the shot that I played in the last ball of our run chase. But it feels special and it's in the books now. With Roston Chase bowling the 49th over, I just wanted the strike and backed myself to do the bulk of the scoring.

You have a massive chance of playing World Cup in India and we are solidly on the path towards it. It is a massive feeling for us as a group. We will enjoy the moment and celebrate it tonight and later sit and think of the next match in hand. We are feeling pretty good and let's hope we continue the same way."
20:55 IST, 17:25 Local time| Hitesh: Oh my goodness! This game was an absolute masterpiece! The Netherlands team put on an extraordinary show and completely outplayed the Windies, securing a sensational victory in the super-over. It is a historic moment that will be remembered for ages. This win will go down in history as one of the greatest moments for the Netherlands in cricket.

Let's have a quick recap of the game!!!

Earlier in the game, Netherlands won the toss and chose to field, allowing West Indies to bat first. The West Indies openers made a blistering start, scoring boundaries consistently. They formed a solid 101-run partnership for the first wicket, with Johnson Charles making 54 runs. West Indies faced a few setbacks in the middle overs, losing wickets including Brandon King, who scored 76 runs.

However, skipper Shai Hope and Nicholas Pooran steadied the innings, adding 108 runs for the 4th wicket. Hope fell just short of a half-century by 3 runs. Pooran played aggressively and got to his 3rd ODI Hundred and remained unbeaten on 104 runs, while Keemo Paul scored 46* runs, propelling West Indies to a massive total of 374 runs. Netherlands' Bas de Leede and Saqib Zulfiqar took a couple of wickets each in their bowling effort.

The Netherlands' chase of 375 runs was an absolute rollercoaster ride! Their openers, Vikramjit Singh and Max O'Dowd, set the stage on fire by smashing 71 runs in the powerplay. However, they lost their wickets to Roston Chase after the powerplay, with O'Dowd scoring 36 runs and Singh contributing 37 runs.

In the middle overs, the Netherlands struggled to form substantial partnerships as wickets fell at regular intervals. But then came the duo of Scott Edwards and Teja Nidamanuru, who injected new life into the innings. With a positive approach, they blazed their way to half-centuries and stitched together a crucial 143-run partnership.

Scott Edwards played a captain's innings, hammering 67 runs off just 47 balls before getting dismissed. Meanwhile, Teja Nidamanuru showcased exceptional batting skills, displaying nerves of steel to notch up his second ODI century. His magnificent knock of 111 runs off 76 balls kept the Netherlands' hopes alive.

With 42 runs needed off the last 18 balls, the Netherlands batters showcased their agility and smart running between the wickets, consistently putting pressure on the Windies' fielders. Aryan Dutt and Logan van Beek joined forces, keeping the fans on the edge of their seats.

In a breathtaking climax, van Beek unleashed a flurry of boundaries, bringing the equation down to 9 runs off the final 6 balls. The tension soared as the game went down to the wire, with 1 run required off the last delivery. However, van Beek fell on the final ball, resulting in a tie and leading the match into a SUPER OVER.

From a bowling point of view, Roston Chase was the star with the ball for the Windies, taking three wickets. Alzarri Joseph and Akeal Hosein also made notable contributions, grabbing a couple of wickets each. Alzarri Joseph became the fastest Windies bowler to reach 100 ODI wickets. 

Logan van Beek was the star of the Super Over as he tore Jason Holder apart. With his powerful hitting, van Beek smashed 3 sixes and 3 fours, helping the Netherlands reach a total of 30 runs. It was an impressive display that secured the victory for his team.

Logan van Beek shone brightly in the super over chase for the Netherlands. With the ball in hand, he made a significant impact against Johnson Charles and Shai Hope of the West Indies. Van Beek's impressive bowling limited Charles to just 7 runs before he was dismissed, while Romario Shepherd was out without scoring a run.

The West Indies could only manage 8 runs in the super over, thanks to van Beek's outstanding efforts. His valuable contributions with both bat and ball played a key role in the Netherlands' victory.

0.5 Beek to R Shepherd
W WICKETT!!!!! Logan van Beek, the man of the hour for Netherlands! Just remember the name! There is nothing other than winning a match like these. Short and angling in at the left shoulder of the batter. Romario Shepherd looks to pull but is late on the shot getting a little tickle of the top edge through to the keeper, Scott Edwards. They celebrate and now time to lead your team off the field Mr. Logan van Beek. Boy, you are a champion and showed why you can't predict anything in games like cricket. They did rampage down a South African team in the ICC 20-20 World Cup last year and now they do something similar to West Indies! I am running out of the superlatives to describe this game of madness.

0.4 Beek to J Charles
W WICKETTT!!!! Charles bites the dust and Netherlands have really done something sensational! A low full toss around the off-stump. Charles looks to smash this one over mid-wicket and gets it off the toe end of the bat. High, high in the air and Zulfiqar runs a few yards to his left at deep square leg taking a superb catch. Netherlands are just a few moments away from a massive win.
That's it!!!!! 3 fair deliveries and Netherlands get over the line.
0.3 Beek to S Hope
1 Fuller-length delivery at the fifth stump line. Hope bends low and is not underneath it. Gets the lofted drive towards long-off for a single. And that should be it for West Indies!
0.2 Beek to J Charles
1 Fuller-length delivery around the off-stump. Charles swings hard and gets an inside edge to deep square leg for a single.
0.1 Beek to J Charles
6 SIXXX!!!!! Logan van Beek, the man of the moment to bowl the super over for Netherlands. Over the wicket. Length ball angling in at the stumps. Charles clears his front leg and hoicks this away using his strength and murders the white ball out of the park at deep square leg region.
