16.1

Cummins to Cusack, no run, back of a length at the batsman, defended off the back foot to the off side

16.2

Cummins to Cusack, FOUR, well played, fuller ball outside off and he drives on the up over the covers with the power to find the boundary

16.4

Ireland 96/6   AR Cusack 8* (7b 1x4)

17.3

Starc to Cusack, 1 run, driven in the air straight down the ground, nearly manges to split long-off and long-on but David Warner is very quick in the outfield

18.2

Cummins to Cusack, no run, beaten outside off by a full delivery, plays over the top as he tries to send it through the off side

Cummins to Cusack, 1 run, a slower, full, delivery, he picks it up quiet cleanly and it goes one bounce down to long-on

Cummins to Cusack, 2 runs, goes over the infield against another full toss, gets some better placement but still not the boundaries Ireland really need

Ireland 111/7   AR Cusack 12* (11b 1x4)

19.2

Watson to Cusack, 1 run, full and wide outside off, Cusack can't time it very well into the off side as it comes off the bottom of the bat

19.5

Watson to Cusack, no run, a bouncer and, quite oddly, Cusack just ducks underneath...was hoping for a wide call

19.6

Watson to Cusack, 2 runs, width outside off, swings hard and it flies off a thick edge towards third man who is able to cut off the boundary

Ireland 123/7   AR Cusack 15* (14b 1x4)
