ICC Intercontinental Cup, Ireland v Canada at Dublin (Malahide), Aug 7-10, 2008
  Ireland 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal PR Stirling lbw b Dhaniram 40 109 88 4 0 45.45
30.3 gone! Disappointment for Sterling, he had done all the hard work and gave it away sweeping at a straight one. He was some distance down the wicket but Umpire Prasad was happy it would have it- big breakthrough for Canada 88/2
View dismissal R Strydom lbw b Thuraisingam 33 72 68 4 0 48.52
19.5 gone this time! Cutting back into Strydom as he played on the back foot, it looked very straight but height may have been an issue, not for the Umpire though who had no hesitation in raising the finger 64/1
View dismissal AD Poynter c †Bhatti b Welsh 23 107 92 2 0 25.00
49.4 gone! Poynter's innings comes to an end with a fine edge through to Bhatti as he pressed forward. He stuck in there well but maybe time for the big hitting middle order as Ireland try to bat towards a declaration 142/4
View dismissal AC Botha b Sami Faridi 6 30 19 1 0 31.57
38.3 out to a half-tracker! The ball was a very short and Botha was very early on an attempted pull-shot, it may have stopped on the pitch- in any case the ball hit the middle-stump and Botha walks off shaking his head 104/3
AR White not out 109 219 144 14 0 75.69
View dismissal KJ O'Brien c Qaiser Ali b Welsh 75 117 97 9 4 77.31
83.2 gone this time! Trying to clear the man at long-off but he doesn't quite get hold of it and Qaiser Ali takes the catch well inside the rope- fantastic innings from O'Brien 296/5
View dismissal DT Johnston c & b Katchay 5 4 5 1 0 100.00
84.2 another one goes- Johnston out in the persuit of quick runs. It was a short ball but top-edged a pull shot and Katchay took a tricky catch off his own bowling 301/6

GEF Barnett not out 35 182 153 4 0 22.87
View dismissal R Gunasekera run out (McCallan) 0 15 12 0 0 0.00
4.2 Connell to Barnett, and that's the wicket! Barnett drove back down the pitch, a mis-field by McCallan persuaded Gunasekera to come back for a second but the direct hit by McCallan left him short, great fielding by the stand-in skipper and he wheels off in delight 3/1
View dismissal Mohammad Iqbal c Poynter b McCallan 18 33 36 3 0 50.00
13.4 gone! Good catch at bad-pad by Poynter as Iqbal comes forward, he got a thick edge onto his pad and the ball lobbed up to Poynter who held on at the second attempt 27/2

View dismissal Qaiser Ali c †McAllister b Connell 2 12 14 0 0 14.28
18.3 gone! Qaiser Ali doesn't like it but he has to go, prodding forward again he get what sounded like a thin edge through to McAllister, the batsman obviously though the sound was bat onto pad, unfortunately for him Umpire Prasad doesn't agree 46/4
View dismissal AL Kandappah c White b Connell 5 13 13 1 0 38.46
22.5 very good catch by White at third slip sends Kandappa packing! It was a full ball which he tried to drive, alittle movement away fins the edge and it flies into the slips where White dives to his left to hang on one-handed 52/5

13.5 to , gone aswell! It looked a straight enough delivery but the night watchman just played down the wrong line and it has cost him his off-stump. Ireland are delighted- three big wickets before the close 27/3
