ICC World Twenty20 - 2nd match, Group B

Australia v Ireland

Australia won by 7 wickets (with 29 balls remaining)

1.1

Starc to Joyce, 1 run, starts full on leg stump, neatly flicked away backward of square on the leg side

1.5

Starc to Joyce, no run, very full, giving the ball every chance to move, Joyce is across his crease and works towards mid-on

1.6

Starc to Joyce, no run, outside off stump, Joyce comes onto the front foot and defends square to point

Ireland 6/1   EC Joyce 1* (3b)

2.2

Cummins to Joyce, FOUR, poor line, flicked off leg stump and short fine-leg is inside the circle so deep square has to run around. He can't quite drag it back first of all, then turns and makes a second dive to try and stop it but is just touching the rope at the same time

2.3

Cummins to Joyce, 1 run, full on middle and leg, allows Joyce to go through the leg side again and finds deep midwickjet

2.5

Cummins to Joyce, no run, outside off stump and the rare sight of one being left alone

2.6

Cummins to Joyce, no run, back of a length on off stump, defended from the back foot and it rolls towards the slips

Ireland 13/1   EC Joyce 6* (7b 1x4)

3.2

Starc to Joyce, 1 run, full outside off, Joyce drives but is a little caught on the crease so doesn't get much power behind the shot as it runs to right of mid-off

3.4

Starc to Joyce, 1 run, nicely driven by Joyce but well fielded at cover to keep them to a single

Ireland 16/2   EC Joyce 8* (9b 1x4)

4.1

Cummins to Joyce, no run, full on off stump, tries to get forward and pushes firmly to cover

4.2

Cummins to Joyce, FOUR, strong shot by Joyce, drilled from leg stump and it beats mid-on

4.3

Cummins to Joyce, no run, cracked square of the wicket, superb piece of fielding at backward point from David Warner to prevent the chance of another boundary

4.4

Cummins to Joyce, FOUR, dropped in short, was just outside off stump but Joyce has enough to pull it well in front of square through midwicket

4.5

Cummins to Joyce, no run, gets back on a full length outside off, goes for the drive and the bat turns in his hand which means he loses timing

4.6

Cummins to Joyce, no run, full on middle and off, defended to the off side

Ireland 24/2   EC Joyce 16* (15b 3x4)

5.3

Maxwell to Joyce, no run, this one is a little slower and a touch shorter, just turns a fraction as it's played square on the off side

5.4

Maxwell to Joyce, no run, fired down the leg side, Joyce goes for the sweep and gets a bottom edge which costs him a wide call

5.5

Maxwell to Joyce, OUT, very soft...tossed up on off stump, Joyce tries to go over the top but can only lob his drive straight to mid-off who was inside the circle

EC Joyce c Warner b Maxwell 16 (25m 18b 3x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Ireland 25/3   EC Joyce 16 (18b 3x4)
