Holland had little trouble dispensing of Bermuda at Rotterdam today as they easily secured the two match ODI series with an eight wicket win.
After thrashing Bermuda by 172 runs on the weekend, the Dutch were in no mood to ease the pain on their associate counterparts, opting to put Bermuda in to bat after winning the toss.
Holland proceeded to illustrate and widen the gap between the two sides as they systematically ripped through the entire Bermudan batting line up, leaving Lionel Cann with the highest score of the innings, just 21 runs.
Most of the Dutch side pitched in to take wickets with Maurits Jonkman making a stellar debut for Holland, taking 3-23 in under six overs. Ryan ten Doeschate continued to show why he is the premier associate all-rounder, taking 2-16, including the middle order wickets of Steven Outerbridge and James Celestine.
The Dutch reply didn't take very long, less that 20 overs in fact as their batsmen made light work in reaching the total, only losing two wickets on the way; Tom de Grooth for 31 and Bas Zuiderent for 17 with youngster Alexei Kervezee and ten Doeschate not out at the end of the match on 49 and 10 respectively.

Maurits Jonkman 3-23, Ryan ten Doeschate 2-16
Alexei Kervezee 49*, Tom de Grooth 31
Dwayne Leverock 1-19, Ryan Steede 1-32
