South Africa vs The Netherlands

March 16, 2007

Netherlands' fast bowler Billy Stelling celebrates after claiming the wicket of AB de Villiers during the World Cup Group A match against South Africa at Warner Park in St Kitts and Nevis, on Friday.

The Dutch tasted success with just the second ball of the match when de Villiers was caught behind by wicketkeeper Jeroen Smits without a run on the board.

Earlier, a wet field, caused by overnight rain, delayed the start of play by two-and-a-half hours, and the match was reduced to 40 overs per innings.

South Africa, who scored a record 353 for 3 in their 50 overs, outplayed the minnows to win the match by a huge margin of 221 runs.
