49.3 and that's the game for Ireland, it was on off stump and Drummond played away from his body and got a fine edge through to O'Brien. Umpire Hair raised the finger with no hesitation 199/10
View dismissal PJC Hoffmann b Cusack 1 3 4 0 0 25.00
47.3 another one goes and this is turning into a procession, it was a yorker that he tried to drive, but again with no foot movement he misses 187/8
View dismissal RM Haq run out (Johnston) 5 5 5 0 0 100.00
48.4 from Botha, another one goes, a fantastic piece of fielding by Johnston at mid-on left Haq stranded mid-pitch, he only had one stump to aim at, super work 194/9
