ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 15th match, Group B

England v Ireland

Ireland won by 3 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)

43.3

Rankin to Collingwood, 1 run, off the mark straightaway with a push into the covers

43.5

Rankin to Collingwood, 1 run, down the track, a shovel to mid-on, and Colly has to scamper to make his ground. That would have been out if it had hit

England 287/3   PD Collingwood 2* (2b)

44.5

Mooney to Collingwood, 1 run, an ugly smear across the line from Collingwood, not dissimilar to the shot that bowled him against India. But Zaheer is a touch more rapid ...

England 290/4   PD Collingwood 3* (3b)

45.1

Johnston to Collingwood, 1 leg bye, one more to the cause, off target from Johnston

45.3

Johnston to Collingwood, 1 run, another reverse sweep, and it's the best executed of the four batsmen to attempt it, though that isn't saying much

45.5

Johnston to Collingwood, 1 run, clipped hard to deep midwicket

England 299/4   PD Collingwood 5* (6b)

46.1

Mooney to Collingwood, 2 runs, chopped through third man, literally, as the fielder fumbles. And that's the seventh 300 of the tournament

46.2

Mooney to Collingwood, 2 runs, two more to the total as Mooney roars with frustration

46.3

Mooney to Collingwood, SIX, that's better from Collingwood! Too full from Mooney, in the slot, and pummelled over the leg-side, onto the roof of the stand

46.4

Mooney to Collingwood, 1 run, low full-toss, and Collingwood might have expected to launch that over midwicket for six. Instead he's rolled it along the ground to the sweeper

46.6

Mooney to Collingwood, 1 wide, way outside off, no reaching that

46.6

Mooney to Collingwood, OUT, an inconclusive performance from Collingwood. Another swipe down the ground, but it was badly sliced, and mid-on made no mistake

PD Collingwood c KJ O'Brien b Mooney 16 (21m 11b 0x4 1x6) SR: 145.45

England 312/6   PD Collingwood 16 (11b 1x6)
