Dutch courage as ten Doeschate hits ton


The Netherlands’ Ryan ten Doeschate scored a dazzling century against ragged England Tuesday to set the three-times finalists a severe test of their World Cup credentials in their first game.

In a match the competition badly needs after a series of mismatches, the Dutch, inspired by ten Doeschate’s knock of 119 off just 110 balls, racked up a total score of 292 for six.

The Ashes heroes were shocking in the field as ten Doeschate went on the rampage, hitting three sixes and nine fours in a devastating show of power.
