ICC World Twenty20, 11th Match, Group B: Ireland v West Indies at Colombo (RPS), Sep 24, 2012
ICC World Twenty20 - 11th match, Group B
No result
Played at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo (neutral venue)
24 September 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Edwards to Porterfield, OUT, bowled him, Porterfield has gone first ball again! Just as against Australia, Ireland have lost their captain to the opening delivery of the match. Edwards pitched the ball up, it swung back through the gate, via the toe of the boot, and neatly splayed the stumps. When asked at the toss if he was going to hook the first ball, Porterfield said he was going to leave it ... which is pretty much what happened

WTS Porterfield b Edwards 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

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