12.4

Ireland 89/3   KJ O'Brien 1* (1b)
13.3

Borren to O'Brien, FOUR, short ball on the middle and leg, poor again from Borren. He doesn't have the pace to scare anyone. The batsman just smacks it to deep backward square leg boundary

13.4

Borren to O'Brien, 1 run, on the pads, this is easily worked away to deep square leg for a single

Ireland 105/3   KJ O'Brien 6* (3b 1x4)
14.4

Mudassar Bukhari to O'Brien, SIX, that's in the arc and it's out of the park! Walloped over long on with utter ease..

14.5

Mudassar Bukhari to O'Brien, 1 run, a low full toss on off, the batsman digs it out towards cover for a single

Ireland 118/3   KJ O'Brien 13* (5b 1x4 1x6)
15.2

Swart to O'Brien, 1 run, fuller and flatter, darted in towards the leg stump, the batsman punches it down to long on

Ireland 121/3   KJ O'Brien 14* (6b 1x4 1x6)
16.4

van der Gugten to O'Brien, no run, he tries to launch this over cover but misses the length delivery completely

16.5

van der Gugten to O'Brien, 2 runs, a low full toss outside off, the batsman hits it to wide long-off from the toe of his bat, the lack of timing allowing them to come back for a second

16.6

van der Gugten to O'Brien, SIX, whoaaa! Now KOB joins in. vd Gugten commits the mistake of serving up a length delivery outside off and the batsman flexes his muscles, launching this up, up and away .. over extra cover for a huge hit

Ireland 157/3   KJ O'Brien 22* (9b 1x4 2x6)
17.3

Jamil to O'Brien, 1 run, full toss on the pads, KOB flicks it straight to fine leg..

17.6

Jamil to O'Brien, 1 run, comes down the pitch, but gets beaten as this cuts in to the batsman, hits him on the body.. Poynter calls for a quick single anyway

Ireland 161/3   KJ O'Brien 24* (11b 1x4 2x6)
18.1

van Beek to O'Brien, SIX, wow! how? This if a low full toss outside off and the batsman slices it over point.. all the way for a six.. how easy it can be

18.2

van Beek to O'Brien, SIX, this is not a driving range! But it doesn't matter for KOB, who murders a full toss way way over the long on boundary..

18.3

van Beek to O'Brien, 1 run, slower bouncer from the bowler, the batsman can only drag it as far as short fine leg

18.6

van Beek to O'Brien, FOUR, wonderful shot this one! KOB was making room by moving to the leg side, but the bowler delivery this full and wide outside off and he had to stretch to reach it. He not only manages to get some bat on it, gets enough to power it over point

Ireland 179/3   KJ O'Brien 41* (15b 2x4 4x6)
19.3

Jamil to O'Brien, 1 run, he was standing way outside the leg stump! Takes the delivery on the full and punches it to deep midwicket

Ireland 181/3   KJ O'Brien 42* (16b 2x4 4x6)
