21 yards in Netherlands?

Young Mark Jonkman started off the proceedings in the warm-up game between India and Netherlands by bowling a fairly longish no-balls-filled first over. He was so way off the mark on a couple of occasions that Steve Bucknor called him up and showed him where the crease was and where the youngster's front foot was landing. It does make you wonder if the pitches in the Dutch-land are a yard shorter in length.. (reminds me of the street games, where the pitch lengths were altered to suit the bowler's run-up)
