For the Netherlands, Logan van Beek took three wickets while Roelof van der Merwe and Paul van Meekeren took two wickets each as South Africa were all out on 207.

Batting first, Netherlands put 245 on the board against South Africa in the rain-affected game.

Dutch skipper Scott Edwards remained unbeaten on 78 off 69 balls as the team set a target of 246 on the loss of eight wickets.
