  Ireland innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JP Bray b McGrath 1 3 2 0 0 50.00
0.6 and that's a very early strike indeed, inswing clipped the outside of off stump. Bray didn't move his feet, tried to jab down on it. Failed 2/1
View dismissal WTS Porterfield lbw b Tait 1 14 11 0 0 9.09
3.1 right up there, straight, on leg, not much swing, too quick for the batsman and not much time's needed for the decision 2/2
View dismissal EJG Morgan c Hayden b McGrath 0 19 9 0 0 0.00
4.3 very soft, on off stump, and that's outside-edged to first slip. Ireland in complete disarray 12/4
View dismissal NJ O'Brien b Tait 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
3.2 ...and out again: full toss, and there's no footwork as the batsman drags a huge inside edge back onto his stumps and Tait's on a hat-trick 2/3
View dismissal KJ O'Brien c Hodge b Clark 16 51 25 3 0 64.00
13.2 drifting onto his pads and timed beautifully, with an elegant flick of his wrists, but he picks out Hodge at short midwicket who didn't need move an inch, taking the ball at head height 42/6
View dismissal AR White c Hogg b McGrath 6 30 20 0 0 30.00
10.3 great catch! An excellent slower ball which he misread, spooning it over McGrath's head; Hogg sprints to his right and takes a fine, low catch 32/5
View dismissal DT Johnston* b Tait 17 30 25 2 0 68.00
16.3 but he's got him this time. Clever bowling from Tait, sending it just a touch wider and enticing the drive. Johnston goes for an expansive slap through the covers, but instead the ball slaps into his stumps 54/7
View dismissal WK McCallan c Tait b Symonds 5 32 18 0 0 27.77
20.6 gone this time. McCallan was getting fed up with all this poking and prodding; a cemented front foot, a swing of the bat, the ball ballooning to mid-on who took a simple catch to his right 72/8
View dismissal JF Mooney run out (Tait) 23 53 44 2 0 52.27
29.6 from Hogg, driven to mid-off and Tait shies down the stumps on the bounce; that's well out 91/10
View dismissal D Langford-Smith c Ponting b Hogg 2 8 7 0 0 28.57
23.1 Dave's gone! Stepping back, not picking it at all, he tries to defend but it takes the outside edge, ballooning to Ricky Ponting at silly point 80/9
