Dutch skipper Borren eyes new shock


AMSTERDAM – The Netherlands skipper Peter Borren, who started his cricket career in his native New Zealand, leads the Dutch into their fourth World Cup campaign.
The 27-year-old all-rounder, who played for New Zealand at under-19 level alongside the likes of Jesse Ryder and Ross Taylor, made his one-day international debut for the Dutch in 2006 against Sri Lanka.
It was an inauspicious start for Borren, pummelled by the Sri Lankan bowlers as he went for 1-94 from his 10 overs against the 1996 World Cup winners. But a good showing in the World Cricket League in Kenya helped him earn a place in the team for the 2007 World Cup in the West Indies.
