23 March 2007 (50-over match)
  Ireland innings (48 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JP Bray c sub (LMP Simmons) b Taylor 41 105 72 7 0 56.94
21.6 a limp end to a real curate's egg of an innings. An even slower ball - 67mph - and a half volley as well, Bray drives and all he does is chip the ball to Lendl Simmons, the substitute, mid-off - a return to the bowler goes harder than that - and he's on his way 82/4
View dismissal WTS Porterfield c Gayle b Powell 0 7 2 0 0 0.00
1.2 again a tad short, this time Porterfield tried to get over it but it was too big for him and an edge flew to Gayle at firstslip ... regulation catch at chest height, and that's Porterfield's second duck in three matches 3/1
View dismissal EJG Morgan c †Ramdin b Powell 18 66 34 0 1 52.94
15.3 comes down the wicket looking to hook that short one and that's a really good catch from the keeper Ramdin. He had to sprint a fair mile to pick that one, two other fielders in pursuit, too, and in the end he took it just inside the boundary with a showboating dive to make Cristiano Ronaldo proud. Nevertheless, that was some really excellent work 61/2
View dismissal NJ O'Brien c †Ramdin b Bradshaw 11 21 19 2 0 57.89
20.2 that's a big wicket. O'Brien undone by a little movement off the seam, he fends and a clearcut edge is meat and drink for Ramdin as he takes a step to his left 76/3
View dismissal AC Botha c †Ramdin b Gayle 28 76 56 1 1 50.00
39.2 goes to pull that one and that's outside-edged high to gully and that's easily held 139/6
View dismissal KJ O'Brien c Sarwan b Gayle 17 51 46 1 0 36.95
35.4 short delivery and that one's sent high to Sarwan running way in off the rope at midwicket and he holds on comfortably 129/5
View dismissal AR White b Bravo 18 33 29 0 0 62.06
45.5 White steps across in an attempt to paddle the ball round the corner - fine leg is up - but he misses and Bravo hits 163/7
WK McCallan* not out 20 29 24 2 0 83.33
View dismissal JF Mooney c †Ramdin b Bravo 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
45.6 an absolute snorter, on a line, rasping through at chest height and Mooney gloves it, Ramdin doing the rest. Two in two for Bravo, and Mooney's World Cup debut ends within seconds 163/8

View dismissal CH Gayle c White b Langford-Smith 18 20 14 3 0 128.57
4.3 got him! There was no need to play that shot, in all fairness, but Gayle gets a head rush, going for glory, and Langford-Smith changes his pace, Bravo on through that one too quickly to mid-off and there's a tidy enough catch 24/1

27.4 Sarwan's torment is over. He again used his feet to get to the ball but his slog-sweep wasn't middled and Kevin O'Brien at deepish midwicket got under it and clung on 143/2
