ICC Cricket World Cup - 15th match, Group B
Ireland won by 3 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)
Played at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore (neutral venue)
2 March 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Rankin to Strauss, SIX, Strauss goes for the pull, a spiralling top-edge, Dockrell at fine leg looked for all money like taking the chance, but the ball had enough legs to plop over the boundary! Lucky for the skipper, not quite as emphatic as his six off Yuvraj!

England 34/0   AJ Strauss 16* (15b 1x4 1x6)   WB Rankin 3-0-25-0

Johnston to Pietersen, SIX, a pie-chart states that ninety percent of KP's tournament runs have come in the arc from cover to backward square, and here's a shot to boost that percentage, a booming drive over long-on for six!

England 66/0   KP Pietersen 37* (31b 5x4 1x6)   DT Johnston 3.2-0-25-0

Mooney to Pietersen, SIX, wow, Pietersen gets all of this. Gone a mile! Just a touch too short, Pietersen was lunging forward but rocked back and dismissed it from his sight, swatting high into the stands over midwicket

England 107/1   KP Pietersen 59* (45b 7x4 2x6)   JF Mooney 1.4-0-19-0

Dockrell to Bell, SIX, the Sledgehammer breaks the ice! Down the track, a beautifully timed lofted drive, over the ropes at long-off!

England 172/2   IR Bell 31* (39b 1x4 1x6)   GH Dockrell 4.3-0-28-1

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

England 309/5   PD Collingwood 15* (9b 1x6)   JF Mooney 7.3-0-51-2
