Commentary

Presentation:

Ed Joyce is the Man of the Match: "Good wicket to bat on. Got another big game in 2 days. Paul is a massive player for us and it's important we get him back. Our bowling is doing a good job."

Porterfield: "Very pleasing to limit them to 120 on that pitch. Paul is fine. We know if we beat Netherlands we are through. Doesn't bother me that I didn't get the Man of the Match (smiles)."

Khurram Khan: "I thought it was a below par score, about 25-30 runs short. There's a lot to learn from here, looking forward to the last game. Want to give Zimbabwe a run for their money."

That's it from us here. Thanks for your company today. More games tomorrow. Cheers!

10.45pm: It's official now. It's called off. Ireland have won this game by 21 runs by D/L method.

Ireland move to the top of Group B. There was a minor stutter but Ireland were always coasting home. Please stay with us for the presentation.

Ahaan: "This is just not good enough to host a world tournament. I wonder how this tournament will progress. Floodlight failure every few matches is not acceptable."

10.35pm: The lights are slowly coming back on but it is still raining.

The D/L target is 82 for 3 after 14.2 overs. Ireland are ahead and will win if there is no play.

Baundule: "It is raining with strong wind. Power shutdown during storm is very common in Bangladesh. This is done in order to avoid accidents. This time they have probably pressed the wrong switch."

10.25pm: And now it's raining! The covers are in.

Just informed that if play's delayed or suspended, play can be extended by a maximum of 30 minutes.

So that's two floodlight failures in the space of 13 minutes. Imagine if they had all gone off when the ball was sailing into a thickly populated stand.

"This after asking fertiliser companies to stop production to divert electricity for the cricket," says Abhishek, at the ground.

Ahmed Raza to Wilson, 1 run, 10.23pm he paddles it to fine leg and the lights have taken a break again! What's going on here, seriously? This must be rather embarassing for the organisers

10.20pm: Just informed that the lights are almost at full intensity now. Yup, and the batsmen are getting ready. Wilson joins Porterfield. And there's a dust storm as well!

Toby Pearl: "Even the floodlights have given up on UAE."

10.10pm: And the flood lights have gone off! Abhishek Purohit, our man at the ground informs that the power just came back to the press box and grandstand. And as I write the floodlight towers are slowly coming back on

Amjad Javed to Poynter, OUT, timber! UAE are hitting back but is it too late? Full credit to Javed here, this was a lovely inswinging yorker that would have made his coach Aqib Javed proud, Poynter was beaten for movement, played all around it and failed to get his bat down, the ball brushes his pad first, the leg stump lands a couple of yards back

Amjad Javed to Poynter, no run, and follows that up with a false shot, this was not shirt enough to cut and he was beaten

Amjad Javed to Poynter, FOUR runs, that was in the slot for him! This was pitched up further and gave him the width he needed to bash that along the ground wide of mid-off and cover

Amjad Javed to Poynter, no run, gets it to shape away again, Poynter pokes his bat out at it
