2nd ODI: King reigns as West Indies secure victory over Netherlands | Cricket News


AMSTELVEEN (Netherlands): A superb unbroken 118 sixth-wicket partnership between Brandon King and Keacy Carty took West Indies from a potential embarrassment in Amstelveen to a five-wicket victory over the Netherlands in the second international of the one day Thursday.
The two met with the West Indies in serious trouble at 99 for five, chasing what seemed like a relatively straightforward goal of 215.
King was the more vigorous of the pair, batting three sixes and nine fours in his unbeaten 90-ball 91, while Carty acted as anchor, racking up 43 from 66 balls.
With four needed to win and 28 balls remaining, he hammered a short ball from Duff high above the midwicket to register his only six and seal the victory that gives the West Indies an unassailable 2-0 win in the three-game series.
The Dutch, who won the coin toss and opted to strike first, had started the match in impressive fashion as Vikramjit Singh (46) and Max O’Dowd (51) added 101 for the first wicket.
Once they both went down – O’Dowd, the first of four victims of left arm spinner Akeal Hosein (4-39) – the rest of the stick struggled.
Scott Edwards, who came in at three, fought hard and was the last out for 68, but even he struggled to get away from the bowling alley, mustering just one limit in his 89 shot balls.
The Dutch bowlers did well in their task of defending such a small total and were encouraged by the early dismissal for 18 of Shai Hope who made it a century in Tuesday’s seven-wicket victory.
Logan van Beek took two wickets and, at 99 for five, it looked like Pieter Seelaar’s side could steal the game and settle the series, but King decided otherwise.
The series ends on Saturday in Amstelveen.
