England tour of Ireland, 2013 / Wicket commentary

RSA Challenge

Ireland v England

England won by 6 wickets (with 42 balls remaining)

3.5

Rankin to Stirling, OUT, gone! Rankin has his first England ODI wicket. Back of a length at off stump, squares up Stirling with a touch of seam movement, takes a thick edge high on the bat and carries low to second slip where Ballance held a sharp chance

PR Stirling c Ballance b Rankin 10 (6m 14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Ireland 25/1   WTS Porterfield 9* (9b 2x4)   WB Rankin 1.5-0-18-1

7.3

Rankin to Joyce, OUT, punched into the off side, what's happened here? A bail has fallen off. Rankin is pointing at it. Has it blown off? Or has Joyce touched his stumps? Umpires having a quick look at the TV. Looks like he's hit wicket! His heel just rocked the base of leg stump. Umpires still checking. No real signals given, but Joyce is now walking off. What a way to go. All rather subdued. Not sure the crowd have been given any information. Complete silence.

EC Joyce hit wicket b Rankin 1 (21m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 10.00

Ireland 36/2   WTS Porterfield 17* (21b 4x4)   WB Rankin 3.3-0-19-2

20.6

Tredwell to NJ O'Brien, OUT, quicker ball, slides past the attempted defensive stroke off the back foot and takes the off stump and Tredwell has a much-deserved wicket. He's bowled with lovely flight and generated good turn, should have had a catch in the deep but now deceives O'Brien with a quicker delivery that skidded on; arm ball does the trick

NJ O'Brien b Tredwell 26 (49m 39b 3x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Ireland 95/3   WTS Porterfield 48* (64b 8x4)   JC Tredwell 4-0-15-1

26.2

Tredwell to Wilson, OUT, floated up on off stump, turns back and strikes the batsman on the front pad, did he get outside the line, no, he's been given out the turn has convinced the umpire that came back enough, probably going on to hit the stumps but Wilson may feel he got outside the line, it was certainly very close. Well bowled from Tredwell though, nicely floated up again and finds more turn

GC Wilson lbw b Tredwell 2 (15m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Ireland 121/4   WTS Porterfield 68* (92b 10x4)   JC Tredwell 6.2-0-22-2

34.4

Bopara to KJ O'Brien, OUT, top catch! Bonus for England. Another short delivery but this time O'Brien's pull picks out Morgan at midwicket who takes a sharp diving catch to his right. Then drop-kicks the ball in celebration.

KJ O'Brien c Morgan b Bopara 23 (30m 27b 3x4 0x6) SR: 85.18

Ireland 161/5   WTS Porterfield 84* (115b 12x4)   RS Bopara 5.4-0-35-1

45.1

Rankin to Porterfield, OUT, full and follows Porterfield again, who is stepping to leg this time, he's ended up yorked well outside leg stump and the ball cannons into the stumps. Bit unfortunate for Porterfield but well bowled Rankin, realising the batsman had stepped away and followed him to cramp him up, it was a good full, straight delivery and Porterfield was nowhere near it

WTS Porterfield b Rankin 112 (174m 142b 14x4 1x6) SR: 78.87

Ireland 224/6   JF Mooney 25* (37b 2x4)   WB Rankin 8.1-1-40-3

45.5

Rankin to Mooney, OUT, full and straight, Mooney misses and is given out lbw it looked very straight that. Good pace from Rankin, the batsman hurried in trying to play to leg and misses, caught very low on the pad in front of middle. Slight question over whether it might have pitched just outside leg but it was so full it's very hard to tell and looked very straight

JF Mooney lbw b Rankin 27 (52m 40b 2x4 0x6) SR: 67.50

Ireland 229/7   DT Johnston 1* (1b)   WB Rankin 8.5-1-45-4
