ICC Under-19 World Cup Qualifier

Ireland Under-19s v United States of America Under-19s

Ireland Under-19s won by 1 wicket (with 1 ball remaining)

Good morning and welcome to the start of the u-19 world cup qualifiers here in Dublin. My name is Justin Smyth and im going to be bringing you coverage of todays game between the hosts Ireland and USA. Over the next 2 weeks 10 teams from across the world will be battling for the 6 places up for grab at the u-19 world cup. As normal with games here in Ireland we are always dependent on the weather. There was heavy rain last night and so the outfield is still wet and we are going to have a slight delay this morning. The toss is going to be at 11.15 and hopefully the game will be getting underway at 11.45. We should still be able to play a full game despite the delayed start. The umpires have gone out into the middle with the captains for the toss. 11.15 Ireland have won the toss and will field. Ireland have won the toss and will field. There is still lots of grey clouds above the ground so it could be an important toss to win. First ball to be bowled.

Match State: Innings Break USA have managed to get the score up to 179. Sandhu top scored with 36 although he was closely follwed by extra's on 35. Shows that Ireland's bowling was a bit wayward, especially with 25 wides. The pick of the bowlers was McCarthy who ended up with 3 wickets. Because of the delayed start today Ireland's reply will be starting in about 25 minutes at 3.30pm. So please join me then when Irelands target will be 180 to win
