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)

46.5

Mooney to Bresnan, 1 run, good yorker, and a good run too, as Collingwood sprints for a single as the ball bobbles into the crease. I say good, but it would have been out if Mooney's boot had been on target

England 311/5   TT Bresnan 1* (1b)

47.2

Rankin to Bresnan, no run, that was in Bresnan's slot, but his slap down the ground finds only thin air

47.3

Rankin to Bresnan, 1 run, smeared into the covers, no-one's nearby to claim the catch

England 314/6   TT Bresnan 2* (3b)

48.2

Johnston to Bresnan, 1 run, thrashed cover-drive, hits the field

48.5

Johnston to Bresnan, no run, well bowled again, but England's batsmen have resorted to hopeless thrashes and slogs since the end of the Trott and Bell stand. Outside off, and through to the keeper

48.6

Johnston to Bresnan, no run, slower ball again, and Bresnan shrugs as if to say he didn't pick it. Which would appear to be true

England 318/7   TT Bresnan 3* (6b)

49.2

Mooney to Bresnan, 1 run, slogged to long-on, another good delivery in the circumstances

49.6

Mooney to Bresnan, OUT, swirling, spiralling, steepling slog, into the leg-side, midwicket steadies himself well, sprints in, steps back, and snaffles a tough chance to finish the innings on a high

TT Bresnan c Johnston b Mooney 4 (23m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 327/8   TT Bresnan 4 (8b)
