Hidde dismissed with a total of 9 runs. Donna comes in at number 3. Carlijn and Donna try to make a good partnership but Carlijn gets out caught by Friso Raalte. Nirav is next in. With a 4 on his first ball he is off to a good start. He builds a good partnership with the other batsmen, Donna. A partnership of 85 until Donna got run out with a total of 19 off 34 balls. Danial comes in and helps Nirav with building a partnership. Nirav keeps making runs and hitting boundary after boundary. His innings comes to an end in the 20th over from a catch on mid-on by Jip Oost. He made a stunning 98 off 48 with a strike rate off 204 and made a partnership off 52 with Danial.
