ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Wicket commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 34th match, Group B

Ireland v South Africa

South Africa won by 131 runs

1.6

Morkel to Porterfield, OUT, that will do, Morne gets the breakthrough early on, lures Porterfield in to the drive, but driving morne is fraught with danger at the best of times because of that short of a good length he bowls, this one moved away after angling in around off stump, and the outside edge went safely to first slip, the South African slip cordon is as safe as a bank

WTS Porterfield c Smith b Morkel 6 (8m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Ireland 8/1   PR Stirling 1* (4b)   M Morkel 1-0-2-1

3.3

Morkel to Stirling, OUT, Stirling does what du Plessis did earlier, guides one straight to slip, second slip this time, this one came in from short of a length, he was caught in the crease and had a weak dab at it, and it looped slowly in the air to settle in to Jacques Kallis' hands

PR Stirling c Kallis b Morkel 10 (15m 11b 2x4 0x6) SR: 90.90

Ireland 19/2   EC Joyce 2* (2b)   M Morkel 1.3-0-7-2

8.5

Kallis to NJ O'Brien, OUT, Kallis gets one now, Niall went charging down the track, got beside the line of one going across him, looking to go over extra cover, but got a faint tickle on its way through to the keeper

NJ O'Brien c †van Wyk b Kallis 10 (23m 16b 0x4 1x6) SR: 62.50

Ireland 35/3   EC Joyce 7* (18b 1x4)   JH Kallis 0.5-0-2-1

11.5

Botha to Joyce, OUT, Joyce goes for the sweep to a delivery that angles in, misses and is hit on the pads, umpire Dharmasena sends him back, but Ireland go for the review, and that would have hit middle and leg, Ireland are reeling here

EC Joyce lbw b Botha 12 (46m 24b 2x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Ireland 51/4   GC Wilson 11* (12b 2x4)   J Botha 0.5-0-6-1

21.3

Peterson to KJ O'Brien, OUT, gone this time! O'Brien was aiming for long-on but sliced across the ball, skying it up for Hashim Amla to take an easy catch at long-off. No O'Brien show tonight ...

KJ O'Brien c Amla b Peterson 19 (39m 24b 2x4 0x6) SR: 79.16

Ireland 92/5   GC Wilson 31* (46b 4x4 1x6)   RJ Peterson 4.3-0-18-1

21.5

Peterson to Wilson, OUT, arm ball from Peterson, Wilson is wrapped on the pads to spark a huge appeal ... and he's given! After a quick chat, they review it, but to no avail. Ireland lose both of their set batsmen in the space of three balls, and they're sliding now

GC Wilson lbw b Peterson 31 (60m 48b 4x4 1x6) SR: 64.58

Ireland 92/6   AR Cusack 0* (0b)   RJ Peterson 4.5-0-18-2

25.5

Peterson to Cusack, OUT, Peterson's got another one! Well with the required rate rising they had to try and target the boundary, no point just knocking it around. Cusack took a couple of steps down and tried to mow it down the ground, but the ball spun away from him, taking a thick edge and swirling up for a catch in the covers

AR Cusack c Smith b Peterson 7 (23m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

Ireland 107/7   JF Mooney 8* (13b 1x4)   RJ Peterson 6.5-0-25-3

29.5

Duminy to Johnston, OUT, caught behind! Johnston presses forward and again the ball doesn't spin an inch, taking a clear outside edge and nestling in van Wyk's right glove

DT Johnston c †van Wyk b Duminy 12 (14m 16b 0x4 1x6) SR: 75.00

Ireland 123/8   JF Mooney 12* (21b 1x4)   JP Duminy 0.5-0-4-1

32.4

Kallis to Mooney, OUT, just one more to go now, Kallis comes round the wicket, Mooney drives and the edge goes straight through to van Wyk. He beat him a couple of times in the last over, now he gets one to touch the bat as Mooney drives rooted to the crease

JF Mooney c †van Wyk b Kallis 14 (49m 28b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Ireland 137/9   GH Dockrell 12* (10b 2x4)   JH Kallis 5.4-1-20-2

33.2

Morkel to Dockrell, OUT, superb catch from van Wyk! Morkel slammed one down much shorter, it leapt up at young Dockrell and took the edge of the shoulder of the bat, the keeper tumbled to his right to complete the dismissal and that's the end of Ireland

GH Dockrell c †van Wyk b Morkel 16 (19m 12b 3x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Ireland 141/10   WB Rankin 0* (2b)   M Morkel 5.2-0-33-3
