ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 37th match, Group B

Ireland v Netherlands

Ireland won by 6 wickets (with 14 balls remaining)

1.3

Johnston to Szwarczynski, OUT, gone, big nick, bowls from slightly wide of the crease, angles it in, lands full outside off and Eric tries to drive it through the line, there might have been a bit of movement away from the bat, gets an edge and Niall O'Brien makes no mistake

ES Szwarczynski c †NJ O'Brien b Johnston 1 (8m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Netherlands 7/1   W Barresi 2* (5b)   DT Johnston 0.3-0-0-1

2.3

Rankin to Cooper, OUT, Netherlands in early trouble here, short of a good length and it's there to cut but Cooper fails to keep it down, strikes it straight into the hands of point, easy catch, Ireland are in control

TLW Cooper c Porterfield b Rankin 5 (7m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Netherlands 12/2   RN ten Doeschate 0* (1b)   WB Rankin 1.3-0-7-1

10.1

Mooney to Kervezee, OUT, Kervezee gives it away! This really was such a soft dismissal, back-of-a-length on off stump and he just popped it straight into short extra cover's hands. He's better than that, Kervezee, and will be bitterly disappointed. Certainly not the greatest way to sign off at the World Cup, and Netherlands lose another

AN Kervezee c KJ O'Brien b Mooney 12 (34m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Netherlands 53/3   RN ten Doeschate 28* (31b 6x4)   JF Mooney 1.1-0-8-1

21.5

Stirling to Barresi, OUT, Review: Appeal for lbw, it's bowled on a good length, he walks across to turn it square, turns in, he misses, and is caught in front. Doctrove's the umpire, he raises his finger immediately. Barresi wants a review, but he's gonna have to go. That was out. Landed in line, struck him in line and was hitting middle and off.

W Barresi lbw b Stirling 44 (61m 49b 4x4 2x6) SR: 89.79

Netherlands 113/4   RN ten Doeschate 45* (57b 7x4)   PR Stirling 2.5-0-15-1

39.5

Stirling to ten Doeschate, OUT, Stirling bowled it flat this time, ten Doeschate had made his mind up, came down the track and tried to clear long-off but it was mistimed, the ball was quicker and he couldn't quite connect well, found a perfectly placed long-off, Mooney taking a simple catch

RN ten Doeschate c Mooney b Stirling 106 (166m 108b 13x4 1x6) SR: 98.14

Netherlands 234/5   PW Borren 53* (58b 6x4)   PR Stirling 8.5-0-45-2

46.5

Mooney to Borren, OUT, slower one and Borren has to go, just drove at it gently, was looking to clear extra cover but didn't have the power behind it, found Porterfield at the edge of the circle at extra cover

PW Borren c Porterfield b Mooney 84 (108m 82b 10x4 0x6) SR: 102.43

Netherlands 287/6   AF Buurman 22* (18b 4x4)   JF Mooney 9.5-0-59-2

49.4

KJ O'Brien to Buurman, 1 wide, OUT, another wide, too wide, called one, Buuman wants to steal a bye, Niall O'Brien collects, and opts to run down towards the stumps and take them out instead of flicking a throw, the ploy works and Buurman, who was sent back by Bukhari, was caught short. He has to walk back

AF Buurman run out 26 (49m 30b 4x4 0x6) SR: 86.66

Netherlands 305/7   Mudassar Bukhari 10* (6b 1x6)   KJ O'Brien 4.3-0-32-0

49.4

KJ O'Brien to Seelaar, OUT, run-out, Netherlands slipping up in the final over, dropped into the leg side, Mooney runs in from midwicket, collects and throws down the stumps at the non-striker's end to find Seelaar short

PM Seelaar run out 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Netherlands 305/8   Mudassar Bukhari 10* (6b 1x6)   KJ O'Brien 4.4-0-32-0

49.5

KJ O'Brien to Mudassar Bukhari, OUT, three run-outs, a team-hatrick, short ball outside off, slapped to mid-off, Joyce fields and returns a throw to O'Brien who takes off the bails, Bukhari had called for a single but was sent back, another one goes

Adeel Raja run out 0 (1m 0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

Netherlands 305/9   Mudassar Bukhari 10* (7b 1x6)   KJ O'Brien 4.5-0-32-0

49.6

KJ O'Brien to Mudassar Bukhari, 1 run, OUT, four in four, swung away towards deep midwicket, attempts an impossible second run, it's an accurate throw to the keeper who takes off the bails to beat Bukhari's dive

Mudassar Bukhari run out 11 (22m 8b 0x4 1x6) SR: 137.50

Netherlands 306/10   BP Loots 0* (0b)   KJ O'Brien 5-0-33-0
