ICC Intercontinental Cup, 2007-2008/09 / Wicket commentary

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

15.1

KJ O'Brien to MacRae, OUT, 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

NJ MacRae lbw b KJ O'Brien 9 (58m 46b 1x4 0x6) SR: 19.56

Scotland 21/1   ST Knox 10* (45b 1x4)   KJ O'Brien 1.1-1-0-1

27.4

Johnston to Watson, OUT, 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

RR Watson c Cusack b Johnston 9 (48m 40b 2x4 0x6) SR: 22.50

Scotland 42/2   ST Knox 17* (80b 2x4)   DT Johnston 8.4-2-15-1

36.3

KJ O'Brien to Hamilton, OUT, 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

GM Hamilton lbw b KJ O'Brien 16 (36m 27b 3x4 0x6) SR: 59.25

Scotland 63/3   ST Knox 17* (106b 2x4)   KJ O'Brien 6.3-4-11-2

37.2

Johnston to Knox, OUT, 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

ST Knox c White b Johnston 17 (152m 110b 2x4 0x6) SR: 15.45

Scotland 64/4   NFI McCallum 0* (4b)   DT Johnston 13.2-5-20-2

55.2

Thompson to Berrington, OUT, 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

RD Berrington c †NJ O'Brien b Thompson 18 (65m 52b 1x4 1x6) SR: 34.61

Scotland 114/5   NFI McCallum 29* (58b 4x4)   GJ Thompson 1.2-0-4-1

69.2

Thompson to McCallum, OUT, 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

NFI McCallum b Thompson 36 (100m 94b 5x4 0x6) SR: 38.29

Scotland 135/6   CM Wright 14* (48b)   GJ Thompson 8.2-3-23-2

99.2

Johnston to Wright, OUT, that's a big breakthrough for Ireland just before the close. Clean bowled, middle stump as he tried to defend on the front foot

CM Wright b Johnston 36 (132m 131b 1x4 0x6) SR: 27.48

Scotland 170/7   JAR Blain 13* (97b 1x4)   DT Johnston 20.2-9-26-3

122.2

Thompson to Smith, OUT, 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

SJS Smith lbw b Thompson 40 (87m 61b 6x4 0x6) SR: 65.57

Scotland 249/8   JAR Blain 50* (174b 8x4)   GJ Thompson 20.2-7-48-3

146.6

KJ O'Brien to Nel, OUT, 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

JD Nel lbw b KJ O'Brien 22 (72m 69b 1x4 1x6) SR: 31.88

Scotland 309/9   JAR Blain 88* (253b 10x4 2x6)   KJ O'Brien 19-9-34-3

148.4

KJ O'Brien to Blain, OUT, 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

JAR Blain c Thompson b KJ O'Brien 93 (272m 259b 11x4 2x6) SR: 35.90

Scotland 314/10   RT Lyons 0* (4b)   KJ O'Brien 19.4-9-38-4
