World T20 - 3rd match, First Round Group B

Ireland v Zimbabwe

Ireland won by 3 wickets (with 0 balls remaining)

8.2

Williams to Porterfield, OUT, some relief for Zimbabwe! Tossed up on middle and leg, Porterfield goes for the slog, miscues it and Maruma takes the catch running forward from deep midwicket

WTS Porterfield c Maruma b Williams 31 (33m 23b 3x4 1x6) SR: 134.78

Ireland 80/1   PR Stirling 46* (27b 8x4)   SC Williams 1.2-0-7-1

10.3

Chatara to Stirling, OUT, Raza takes the skier and it was well judged! Stirling falls to a poor shot, he was looking to slam that straight down the ground, didn't get to the pitch of it and it was miles up in the air, Raza gets under it near the region of mid-on and hangs on to it on the fall

PR Stirling c Sikandar Raza b Chatara 60 (42m 34b 9x4 1x6) SR: 176.47

Ireland 100/2   EC Joyce 6* (6b)   TL Chatara 2.3-0-15-1

14.4

Panyangara to Poynter, OUT, There's an appeal for a catch at midwicket but it could be a bump ball. This was full and swinging in, Poynter looked to flick it away and it went low to Chigumbura who took the catch cleanly falling forward, no doubts there, the question was if the ball bounced once after it made contact with the bat, replays confirmed that the ball ballooned off the bottom of the bat so it's fair

AD Poynter c Chigumbura b Panyangara 23 (18m 15b 3x4 0x6) SR: 153.33

Ireland 129/3   EC Joyce 11* (16b)   T Panyangara 1.4-0-18-1

14.6

Panyangara to Wilson, OUT, are we in for a twist here? Clever captaincy here getting in a slip, this was a length ball outside off and Wilson chased it, thick outside edge and Masakadza showed good reflexes to take it to his left, that went quickly off the bat

GC Wilson c Masakadza b Panyangara 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Ireland 129/4   EC Joyce 11* (16b)   T Panyangara 2-1-18-2

17.6

Panyangara to O'Brien, OUT, after the assault the bowler gets his wicket! Funny old over, this was pitched up and he stayed at the crease and lofted it down to long-off, the fielder was pushed back

KJ O'Brien c Williams b Panyangara 17 (12m 10b 2x4 1x6) SR: 170.00

Ireland 157/5   EC Joyce 19* (24b)   T Panyangara 3-1-34-3

19.3

Panyangara to Joyce, OUT, and a magnificent inswinging yorker from Panyangara makes things interesting again! Joyce made a bit of room and exposed his stumps, he failed to get his bat down to dig it out, the ball just kissed the leg stump and knocked down the leg bail

EC Joyce b Panyangara 22 (50m 28b 0x4 0x6) SR: 78.57

Ireland 162/6   SR Thompson 2* (5b)   T Panyangara 3.3-1-36-4

19.4

Panyangara to Sorensen, OUT, and we have a run out in the middle of all this would you believe this! Sorensen digs out a yorker to mid-off and risks the single, the throw from Williams was accurate and Sorensen was miles short, he collided with the bowler but Panyanagara wasn't complaining

MC Sorensen run out 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Ireland 162/7   SR Thompson 2* (5b)   T Panyangara 3.4-1-36-4
