ICC Cricket World Cup - 37th match, Group B

Ireland v Netherlands

Ireland won by 6 wickets (with 14 balls remaining)

19.5

Cusack to ten Doeschate, no run, short of a length outside off, tries to cut, gets some good bounce as it nips in, misses

19.6

Cusack to ten Doeschate, 1 run, short and wide, goes for the cut again, plenty of width but it's fielded brilliantly at point as the fielder hurls himself to his right and keeps them down to a single

Netherlands 105/3   AR Cusack 0.2-0-1-0

33.1

Cusack to Borren, 1 run, slower one dropped short outside off, slapped towards deep cover for a single

33.2

Cusack to ten Doeschate, 1 run, bowled it short outside off, punched towards deep cover for one more, nicely timed

33.3

Cusack to Borren, no run, the slower legcutter from the back of the hand, fished for it but missed as it kept low and rolled away

33.4

Cusack to Borren, 1 run, quick single, knocked it down in front of midwicket into the leg side, rushed for a single and made it comfortably in the end, Porterfield flicked an underarm throw at the striker's end but he made it easily

33.5

Cusack to ten Doeschate, 1 run, again, drops it into the off side and steals a quick one

33.6

Cusack to Borren, no run, another legcutter from the back of the hand, full outside off, steered towards point

Netherlands 182/4   AR Cusack 1.2-0-5-0

35.1

Cusack to ten Doeschate, no run, slower one bowled short outside off, cracked straight to point

35.2

Cusack to ten Doeschate, 2 runs, a pretty quick outfield this, angled it on middle flicked uppishly through square leg for a couple more

35.3

Cusack to ten Doeschate, 1 run, crunched into the off side towards deep cover for one more

35.4

Cusack to Borren, 2 runs, slower one and he was not particularly in control of that one, landed on a length and Borren chased it, slicing it over point, Johnston at third man is a little fine and he has to run a fair distance to his right to drag it back in, dives and keeps them to two, good commitment in the deep

35.5

Cusack to Borren, FOUR, mid-off is up and that's a length ball that's begging to be dispatched, full and he smacks that over the in-field for a boundary

35.6

Cusack to Borren, 1 run, worked away into the leg side for one more to keep strike

Netherlands 197/4   AR Cusack 2.2-0-15-0
