ICC World Twenty20 - 11th match, Group B

Ireland v West Indies

No result

1.1

Rampaul to Stirling, 1 run, length ball on the stumps, dropped short towards mid-on, they take one, though there's a brief moment of hesitation from the pair

1.5

Rampaul to Stirling, no run, full and swinging away a touch, there's a sound as the ball went past the bat, possibly the toe hitting the ground, as Stirling pushed loosely forward

1.6

Rampaul to Stirling, no run, full length outside off, punched on the front foot to cover

Ireland 10/1   PR Stirling 1* (3b)

2.2

Edwards to Stirling, FOUR, dug in, fiery bumper and Stirling takes it on, top-edging over the keeper for a misdirected four

2.3

Edwards to Stirling, no run, short again, possibly a slight change of pace as Stirling swipes across the line and misses this time

2.4

Edwards to Stirling, 2 runs, check drive and this booms off the bat and high over extra-cover, a lot of elevation but not quite the distance to get to the rope

2.5

Edwards to Stirling, no run, pitched up outside off and chopped towards point

2.6

Edwards to Stirling, no run, tries to get inside the line and hoick to leg, beaten for pace by a length ball and hit on the thigh pad

Ireland 17/1   PR Stirling 7* (8b 1x4)

4.1

Sammy to Stirling, no run, keeper up to the stumps, length ball, dabbed into the leg side from the crease

4.2

Sammy to Stirling, FOUR, shot! Stirling gives himself room and cracks a slightly wide delivery through point for four

4.3

Sammy to Stirling, FOUR, and again, flayed over backward point this time! It wasn't a bad ball, on the stumps and a good length, but Stirling backed away and lashed it for another boundary

4.4

Sammy to Stirling, 1 run, angled in towards the stumps, not a clean connection but the ball dribbles towards point

4.6

Sammy to Stirling, no run, wide on the crease from Sammy, Stirling pre-meditates a lap shot but can't get it away towards fine leg as intended

Ireland 33/1   PR Stirling 16* (13b 3x4)

5.6

Narine to Stirling, 1 run, off break on off stump, Stirling loops the ball up wide of the bowler on the leg side, could have been a caught-and-bowled chance but Narine couldn't get past O'Brien, who stood his ground at the non-striker's end

Ireland 35/2   PR Stirling 17* (14b 3x4)

6.1

Sammy to Stirling, 2 runs, touch short and wide, against Stirling carves through the off side but there's a man on the fence to prevent four

6.2

Sammy to Stirling, OUT, miscued pull and Ireland are three down! Stirling tried to cart the ball through the leg side, it bounced on him a little more than his expected and looped tamely to midwicket

PR Stirling c Gayle b Sammy 19 (26m 16b 3x4 0x6) SR: 118.75

Ireland 37/3   PR Stirling 19 (16b 3x4)
