Video - Proud Borren On 'Fantastic' Victory

Netherlands captain Peter Borren says he is proud of his team after they pulled off what he calls a 'fantastic' 45-run win over England to end their ICC World Twenty20 on a massive high.

After posting a score of 133 for five, the Netherlands bowled 2010 champions England out for a dismal 88 to register their first win in Group One.

The victory came despite Borren feeling that they had let themselves down a little with the bat.

"Just so proud of the guys, really, for coming out there in the second half and we just left it all out there," he said.

"I think we, I sort of discussed it, we weren't happy with 130, we didn't bat as well as we can.

"In saying that, England also summed up the conditions pretty well and bowled well, but for us to go out there and for our bowlers to execute, fantastic.

"And it's left a nice memory for us, definitely, it's left a fantastic memory."

Borren is one of two players (Pieter Seelaar being the other) who were also playing when the Dutch turned over England at Lord's in the opening game of the 2009 tournament but says this was a completely different experience.

"Ah, it's completely different, I think although... this one in a way is sort of more satisfying because it's sort of more of a build up of a lot of work," he said.

"We just sort of came under the radar in 2009, we sort of went in there and...they didn't know what to expect, they didn't know anything about us, we've now progressed playing quite a few good games of cricket in the lead up to this win, which is sort of more of a long term thing if you know what I'm saying.

"We definitely just ambushed them in 2009, it's hard to re-capture that feeling, because we won off the last ball."
