ICC Cricket World Cup - 27th match, Group B

Ireland v West Indies

West Indies won by 44 runs

24.2

KJ O'Brien to Chanderpaul, OUT, O'Brien has struck, a soft dismissal in the end, pitched up on the off and Chanderpaul drives it uppishly to find Porterfield at extra cover who takes a good, low catch

S Chanderpaul c Porterfield b KJ O'Brien 35 (102m 62b 3x4 0x6) SR: 56.45

West Indies 89/1   DS Smith 53* (84b 5x4 1x6)   KJ O'Brien 3.2-0-15-1

24.5

KJ O'Brien to Bravo, OUT, Gone! Timber! Full on middle and Bravo senses a chance, meaty delivery and he tries to blaze it down the ground, misses and the middle stump is out of the ground

DM Bravo b KJ O'Brien 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 89/2   DS Smith 53* (84b 5x4 1x6)   KJ O'Brien 3.5-0-15-2

31.6

Dockrell to Sarwan, OUT, Sarwan holes out, Dockrell strikes, tossed up and he was tempted, wasn't much intent in that shot however, was aiming at that gap between long-off and deep extra cover but didn't go where he intended, landed straight into the hands of Mooney at long-off

RR Sarwan c Mooney b Dockrell 10 (29m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.63

West Indies 130/3   DS Smith 78* (108b 8x4 1x6)   GH Dockrell 2-0-9-1

42.3

KJ O'Brien to Smith, OUT, shuffles way too much in an attempt to flick it fine, it's fired full on the stumps and he misses, timber! The end of an innings Devon will remember for the rest of his life.

DS Smith b KJ O'Brien 107 (194m 133b 11x4 1x6) SR: 80.45

West Indies 218/4   KA Pollard 54* (38b 5x4 2x6)   KJ O'Brien 7.3-0-47-3

42.6

KJ O'Brien to Sammy, OUT, a wicket Ireland needed badly, though it's not Pollard. Sammy can step it up but he finds fine leg, short on middle and leg and he swivels to play the pull, gets a top edge and Dockrell makes no mistake in the deep

DJG Sammy c Dockrell b KJ O'Brien 4 (1m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

West Indies 222/5   KA Pollard 54* (38b 5x4 2x6)   KJ O'Brien 8-0-51-4

44.6

Rankin to Thomas, OUT, gone, slightly back of a length and it rose up well, Thomas tried to dab it to third man, gets a thin edge straight to the keeper, Ireland have fought back in these last few overs

DC Thomas c †NJ O'Brien b Rankin 2 (8m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

West Indies 228/6   KA Pollard 58* (42b 5x4 2x6)   WB Rankin 9-1-29-1

48.1

Mooney to Pollard, OUT, Misses the century as he holes out to long-off, length ball and just the right delivery he needed to get to that landmark, but he didn't connect as well as he would have liked, lofted it straight to long-off

KA Pollard c Rankin b Mooney 94 (83m 55b 8x4 5x6) SR: 170.90

West Indies 267/7   AD Russell 3* (6b)   JF Mooney 8.1-0-54-1

48.2

Mooney to Russell, OUT, bowled'im, full on middle and leg, Russell has a wild swing and not for the first time, misses. The leg stump is uprooted and the umpire just wants to check again if it was a no-ball. Replaus show it wasn't, an Russell, pretty unhappy with himself, has to go

AD Russell b Mooney 3 (15m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

West Indies 267/8   NO Miller 0* (0b)   JF Mooney 8.2-0-54-2

49.2

Botha to Miller, 1 run, OUT, dropped, slower one bowled full on middle, smashed back to the bowler who spills it after not reacting in time, but as they attempt the second, Mooney returns a neat throw to the bowler who takes off the bails to find Benn short

SJ Benn run out 2 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

West Indies 272/9   NO Miller 3* (4b)   AC Botha 9.2-0-53-0

49.6

Botha to Roach, OUT, swings hard but miscues it to point, was targeting long-off there but went far from it, West Indies have been bowled out

KAJ Roach c Stirling b Botha 1 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

West Indies 275/10   NO Miller 5* (6b)   AC Botha 10-0-56-1
