2.4

Jamil to Porterfield, SIX, nothing wrong about this one! This is a length ball and that has been chipped straight over the bowler's head. The timing in that carries it all the way. Superb effort

3.4

van der Gugten to Porterfield, no run, stays in the crease and defends the length delivery to midwicket

3.5

5.4

Mudassar Bukhari to Porterfield, FOUR, this is such a teaser! The batsman flicks it to the right of short fine leg fielder. Van de Gugten could have stopped it straightaway as it was not very far, but he chooses to run along and looses the race

5.5

Mudassar Bukhari to Porterfield, no run, he is in some form! Gets a fuller delivery and thumps it on the up to cover, but finds the fielder this time

8.5

Seelaar to Porterfield, no run, he was in some trouble here! Porterfield goes for a reverse sweep, misses it as it sneaks under his bat and he had no idea where it went. It was in the keeper's gloves and he took out the leg stump. Luckily for the batsman, he kept his back leg inside the crease

9.1

Jamil to Porterfield, OUT, What have you done Porterfied! Three short of his fifty, the captain decides to go for a cross-batted heave after advancing down the pitch.. But that probably came slower than he anticipated, it slides under his bat and knocks the off stump back

Ireland 69/2   WTS Porterfield 47 (32b 5x4 2x6)
