England loses out at T20

CHITTAGONG - The Netherlands have upset 2010 champions England by 45 runs at the World Twenty20 in Chittagong, with paceman Mudassar Bukhari and Logan van Beek taking three wickets apiece.

Bukhari took 3-12 while van Beek finished with 3-9 to bowl England out for a paltry 88 in 17.4 overs, after they were set a modest target of 134 to chase in their last group one Super-10 match at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury stadium.

England, who chased 190 to beat Sri Lanka in their only win in the tournament, never looked comfortable, despite the inexperienced Dutch bowling.

Ravi Bopara (18), Chris Jordan (14) and Alex Hales (12) were the only batsmen who reached double figures in an otherwise disappointing batting display.

Bukhari jolted England with two early wickets — Michael Lumb (six) and Hales by the fifth over — before dismissing Stuart Broad (four) to help his team repeat their upset win over England in the opening round of the 2009 World Twenty20, held in England.

Van Beek then came into his own, dismissing Jos Buttler (six), Bopara and Jordan in his short two-over spell.
