Khan to Mooney, 2 runs, another yorker attempted, this one ends up a full toss on leg stump, squeezed away to square leg for a single

Ireland 175/6   JF Mooney 4* (15b)

41.3

Yuvraj Singh to Mooney, 1 run, flatter and on off stump, Mooney tries to force it from the back foot and gets it past Yuvraj

41.5

Yuvraj Singh to Mooney, OUT, Mooney reviews an lbw appeal upheld by umpire Tucker. Yuvraj continues to impress - this is not part-time stuff. Looped up just outside off, and turning in sharply as Mooney presses half forward to defend. He did not get his pad out of the line, and was struck in front of off. Only height could have saved him, but the tracker predicts this to be clipping the top of middle. On your way, Mooney.

JF Mooney lbw b Yuvraj Singh 5 (19m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 29.41

Ireland 178/7   JF Mooney 5 (17b)
