ICC World Cup - 9th match, Group D

Ireland v Pakistan

Ireland won by 3 wickets (with 32 balls remaining) (D/L method)

0.2

Langford-Smith to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 wide, plenty of shape away - but you can have too much of a good swing, and that's gone wide

0.2

Langford-Smith to Mohammad Hafeez, (no ball) FOUR, overstepping and that's driven nicely through mid-off for the first boundary

0.2

Langford-Smith to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, driven to mid-on and there's some confusion between the Pakistan batsman as Johnston slides over to pick that up

0.3

Langford-Smith to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, a hint of swing away has the batsman squaring up and then hiding his bat behind his pad on the front foot

0.4

Langford-Smith to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, another good delivery, false shot, a little bit of a dab at that one, feet trapped in the crease

0.5

Langford-Smith to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, nice arc of away swing there, full, and the batsman attempts to drive it to mid-off

0.6

Langford-Smith to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, gone! Ireland strike and there's cheers all round the ground. Jubilation for Langford-Smith with a classic paceman's delivery, banana swing away and that clips the outside edge, Niall O'Brien takes an easy catch. Great start for the Irish and there's a conga going on already (in the stands that is)

Mohammad Hafeez c †NJ O'Brien b Langford-Smith 4 (5m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Pakistan 7/1   Mohammad Hafeez 4 (6b 1x4)
