  Scotland 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal ST Knox c White b Johnston 17 152 110 2 0 15.45
37.2 short of a length, Knox came forward and it hit the shoulder of the bat and looped to gully who took an easy catch to bring Knox's vigil to an end 64/4
View dismissal NJ MacRae lbw b KJ O'Brien 9 58 46 1 0 19.56
15.1 he's gone!, It was a full ball that struck him on the front foot. It looked pretty straight to be honest and he didn't get very far forward 21/1
View dismissal RR Watson* c Cusack b Johnston 9 48 40 2 0 22.50
27.4 and that's a huge wicket for Ireland. It was short ball which he tried to pull, but could only top edge to fine leg who took a very good catch 42/2
View dismissal GM Hamilton lbw b KJ O'Brien 16 36 27 3 0 59.25
36.3 he's gone, it looked like a bad decision from here, he was well forward and it looked like he may have got an inside edge, he's pretty disgusted and it's a slow trudge off 63/3
View dismissal NFI McCallum b Thompson 36 100 94 5 0 38.29
69.2 another one goes and that's a big wicket. He tried to sweep a very full ball and it looked from here that he was bowled around his legs, big turn for the youngster! McCallum looks bemused by it all as he walks off 135/6
View dismissal RD Berrington c †NJ O'Brien b Thompson 18 65 52 1 1 34.61
55.2 and he's gone, it was a lovely bit of bowling, just drawing him forward and spinning away to clip the edge through to O'Brien who takes a smart catch. Big wicket for Ireland and for Thompson 114/5
View dismissal CM Wright b Johnston 36 132 131 1 0 27.48
99.2 that's a big breakthrough for Ireland just before the close. Clean bowled, middle stump as he tried to defend on the front foot 170/7
View dismissal JAR Blain c Thompson b KJ O'Brien 93 272 259 11 2 35.90
148.4 and that's it all over, short ball from O'Brien and Blain couldn't resist the hook shot, a big top edge took the ball out to deep midwicket where Thompson took a simple catch just inside the rope 314/10
View dismissal SJS Smith lbw b Thompson 40 87 61 6 0 65.57
122.2 another big wicket for Ireland just as they were beginning to lose their grip on the game. It was a ball on a good length that hit Smith on the pad ...he was a long way down the pitch and may count himself a little unfortunate 249/8
View dismissal JD Nel lbw b KJ O'Brien 22 72 69 1 1 31.88
146.6 another lbw for Ireland! This one looked pretty plum as Nel tried to flick a straight delivery through midwicket. It hit him right back on the stumps and probably would have hit halfway up middle and leg stump 309/9
RT Lyons not out 0 6 4 0 0 0.00

View dismissal WTS Porterfield lbw b Nel 18 34 30 2 0 60.00

View dismissal AR White c Watson b Nel 11 45 24 1 0 45.83
10.2 another wicket for Scotland, it was a ball just short of a length that White tried to cut but it was too close to him and he could only guide the ball to first slip, who took a smart catch low down. It was like catching practice 40/3

View dismissal KJ O'Brien lbw b Wright 7 27 16 1 0 43.75
15.1 Ireland will wish thay had have went off as they lose their fourth wicket, it was a full ball that O'Brien tried to play into the leg side, he seemed a little early on it and Umpire Baugh had no doubt 59/4
