    8.3 there's the breakthrough and how Ireland needed it. The ball seemed a bit quicker, taking the off stump bail as Hamilton tried to play through square leg 60/1
    17.2 beaten in the flight and that's the wicket that Ireland wanted. Very nicely flighted by the Irish vice-capain drawing Watson down the pitch, he was well short of his ground as O'Brien whipped off the bails 91/3

    11.1 another wicket and it was a really ugly shot. It looked a little slower and flighted by Botha, hitting off stump as Sheikh aimed a rather agricultural slog over midwicket 66/2
    19.1 another stumping, again nicely flighted to draw Smith out of his ground and spinning past the edge. Niall O'Brien completed the formalities with little fuss 99/4
    24.5 good thinking from Connell as he bowls a slower ball which traps Watts bang infront as he tries to turn the ball into the legside. Good spell for the Irish 115/6
    20.1 another Scottish batsman ggoes, this time thanks to a fantastic catch by O'Brien diving to his left. It was on a good length and nipping back to catch a fine inside edge and O'Brien did the rest! 100/5
    31.4 slower ball again which Berrington tried to swing over midwicket, he didn't quite get hold of it and picked out Wilson on the midwicket boundary 133/8
    27.1 another wicket for McCallan, flatter delivery which trapped Haq on the back foot. Billy Bowden had little doubt to send Haq on his way 120/7
    34.4 he's gone after a smart catch by O'Brien on the long-off boundary. Good length delivery driven down the ground by Blain but he couldn't quite clear the field 150/9
