    4.1 two wickets in two balls and Ireland are jubilant, Hamilton came down the pitch to play oer the infield on the leg-side- he skied the ball in the air, where Botha took the catch at midwicket 29/2
    4 this time he's gone! It was another full ball which was driven to mid-on where Strydon took a smart catch above his head 29/1

    9.4 another wicket and that's a big one. The ball was on a good length and a nagging line outside the off stump, Coetzer tried to defend on the back foot baut got an inside edge bck onto his stumps 52/4
    5.4 gone! He went for a big heave into the leg-side but the ball was too full and it hit middle stump 31/3
    15.2 the partnership is broken as Berrington steps away from his stump to hit over the off-side, he got an edge and the ball went high in the air, where Niall O'Brien took an easy catch 92/5
    15.5 another one goes! Just a bi shorter from Botha, taking a thin edge as McCallum tried to cut. They all go up and he's on his way 92/6
    16.2 this is getting dodgy for the Scots. It was a straight ball that Maiden tried to play through square-leg, it looked absolutely plum 94/7
    18.5 tries to hit over mid-off, a thick outside edge skies the ball into the covers where Porterfield pouches it 108/9
    17 gone! Another lbw as Blain played accross the line, it again looked very straight but height may have been an issue, not for the Umpire though and Blain is sent packing 98/8

    3.1 he goes for the same shot as Wilson but is bowled by a leg-stump yorker, well bowled by Nel but needless shot by Porterfield with Ireland in command 15/1

    6.5 got him! Spinning between bat and pad as Wilson aimed a flick through the leg-side after advacing down the pitch. Game on in Belfast! 33/2

    17.3 gone! That is a big wicket and Scotland may just be back in this. Botha came down the wicket but Maiden saw him coming but bowled a flatter ball which hit off stump. Big celebrations from Scotland 100/5
    15.5 lovely bowling from Rodgers, he really threw that ball up, inviting O'Brien down the pitch and spinning past the edge to give Colin Smith an easy stumping 89/4
    18.3 OUT, gone! That is a big wicket and Scotland may just be back in this. Botha came down the wicket but Maiden saw him coming but bowled a flatter ball which hit off stump. Big celebrations from Scotland 104/6
