Hosts lose opener to Netherlands

12:24 pm on 6 June 2009

In a huge upset, England have lost the opening match of cricket's Twenty20 World Cup at Lord's.

The hosts made 162 for five and in reply the Netherlands reached the target off an overthrow on the last ball to win by four wickets.

New Zealand play Scotland tonight and Black Caps all rounder Scott Styris says they won't be taking their opposition lightly.

That match begins at 9pm.
