Captain's view

Ireland captain William Porterfield: "We didn't see it home. We didn't play smart cricket."

Netherlands captain Peter Borren: "Six overs is always a bit of a lottery. I was happy with some of the skills we showed with the ball.

"The outstanding catch of Pieter Seelaar swung the game in our favour. Paul van Meekeren bowled two sensational overs and used the pitch in our favour."

Player's view

The Netherlands' Paul van Meekeren, who took 4-11: "It's special.

"It was perfect conditions for me. I did what I had to do. We've been training for this for the last two months, and it just worked out.

"The groundstaff did a fantastic job just getting us a game in."
