ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 22nd match, Group B

India v Ireland

India won by 5 wickets (with 24 balls remaining)

0.5

Khan to Joyce, no run, Zaheer is hitting the seam with a vengeance here. 126 kph only, but lands outside off and darts away from Joyce who wisely lets it go

0.6

Khan to Joyce, no run, and he ends the over with one that holds its line, Joyce covers the angle and defends.

Ireland 1/1   EC Joyce 0* (2b)

2.1

Khan to Joyce, no run, Zaheer keeps it short of driving length, early 130s, Joyce comes forward and defends watchfully

2.2

Khan to Joyce, FOUR, whoa, the Irish need to settle down here. Joyce jumps out of the crease and to the off stump line even as Zaheer gets into delivery stride, and then goes hard at an away-swinger. Yusuf at second slip dives to his left but can't get there, the ball was traveling. Dhoni and Zaheer consult on whether they should have a third slip ...

2.3

Khan to Joyce, OUT, this is stupendous from Zaheer. He's been moving them away like a charm all along, and then just for fun, he gets one to jag back off the seam. Joyce was obviously expecting another one that moved away, and in an attempt to cover the deviation was groping outside the line. Too bad. Zaheer got it to go the other way and kiss the inside edge on the way to Dhoni

EC Joyce c †Dhoni b Khan 4 (8m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Ireland 9/2   EC Joyce 4 (5b 1x4)
