ICC World Twenty20 - 11th match, Group B

Ireland v West Indies

No result


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

Ireland 0/1   PR Stirling 0* (0b)   FH Edwards 0.1-0-0-1


Narine to Joyce, OUT, bowled him round the legs, Narine strikes! Joyce had twice played and missed, this was further down the leg side and the batsman went to sweep, expecting turn again, the ball went straight on and clattered into leg stump

EC Joyce b Narine 17 (20m 19b 3x4 0x6) SR: 89.47

Ireland 33/2   PR Stirling 16* (13b 3x4)   SP Narine 0.3-0-0-1


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   NJ O'Brien 1* (2b)   DJG Sammy 1.2-0-12-1


Gayle to Wilson, OUT, pushed through, arm ball and there's a little nick to the keeper! Wilson was trying to drive and the ball just skidded through and scraped the outside edge. Gayle pops his collar and busts a groove in celebration

GC Wilson c †Ramdin b Gayle 21 (18m 22b 3x4 0x6) SR: 95.45

Ireland 70/4   NJ O'Brien 13* (12b)   CH Gayle 0.4-0-5-1


Gayle to NJ O'Brien, OUT, bowled him, sneaked one through! Gayle is doing the funky chicken again! He went round the wicket, fired in what was effectively a flat yorker, O'Brien didn't get his bat down in time and the off pole was rattled

NJ O'Brien b Gayle 25 (38m 21b 0x4 1x6) SR: 119.04

Ireland 96/5   KJ O'Brien 11* (12b 1x6)   CH Gayle 2.1-0-10-2


Rampaul to KJ O'Brien, OUT, shuffles across, looking to go big on the leg side ... and Rampaul knocks over his off stump! The batsman telegraphed his intention but Rampaul was good enough not to be flustered, just went full and straight and knocked over Ireland's King Louis, the big-swinging O'Brien

KJ O'Brien b Rampaul 13 (19m 15b 0x4 1x6) SR: 86.66

Ireland 107/6   DT Johnston 8* (3b 1x6)   R Rampaul 2.1-0-8-1
