Ireland v Netherlands

Netherlands won by 6 wickets (with 37 balls remaining)

9.2

Jamil to Poynter, 1 run, length delivery on off, he takes a single down to long off

9.5

Jamil to Poynter, no run, this one is actually a slower delivery, the batsman plays his flick too early and gets hit high on the pad

9.6

Jamil to Poynter, no run, this could have been close! The batsman looks to push the slower offcutter to the off side, but gets an inside edge that lobs off his pads to the leg side.. Borren ran in, but couldn't quite make it in time

Ireland 71/2   AD Poynter 1* (3b)

10.3

Seelaar to Poynter, no run, tossed up delivery outside off, the batsman comes forward and pushes it to cover

10.4

Seelaar to Poynter, 1 run, tossed up and full, the batsman drives it straight down the pitch. The bowler doesn't stop it cleanly which allows a single. Possibly a chance too. That was in the air and had the bowler got down in time, it could have been curtains for Poynter

Ireland 79/2   AD Poynter 2* (5b)

11.2

Swart to Poynter, no run, this one is definitely a drop! the batsman punched this full delivery straight back at the bowler, that was hit hard and high and Swart is not able to hold on. The umpire was falling to his right to avoid that too

11.3

Swart to Poynter, 1 run

11.5

Swart to Poynter, 1 run, full and flighted, the batsman flicks it to deep midwicket

Ireland 84/2   AD Poynter 4* (8b)

12.3

Mudassar Bukhari to Poynter, OUT, that was too cheeky and a bit unnecessary! Joyce maybe gone here. The bowler tried to create room, the bowler followed him and hit his pads, the ball dropped close to the stumps. Can't see a run in that. But Joyce calls the striker anyway. The keeper does well to comes in and hit the stumps at close range

EC Joyce run out 28 (35m 25b 1x4 1x6) SR: 112.00

12.5

Mudassar Bukhari to Poynter, 1 wide, another single close to the stumps as the batsman chops the ball.. This time though the batsmen are quicker and make it through. The keeper fires a throw at the non-striker's end, but the batsmen were alert and take a single of the ricochet

12.5

Mudassar Bukhari to Poynter, 2 runs, on the pads, this one is flicked easily to fine leg for a single

12.6

Mudassar Bukhari to Poynter, 1 run

Ireland 93/3   AD Poynter 7* (11b)

13.2

Borren to Poynter, 1 run, this one is on the pads too, pushed to deep square leg

15.4

Swart to Poynter, SIX, make that two in two! Same ball, same shot! Poynter has enough muscle to smack these over and over again

15.5

Swart to Poynter, SIX, that's a hat-trick of sixes here! But this is the best of the lot. It's full outside off and Poynter plays an inside out drive that keeps defying gravity till it crosses the ropes

15.6

Swart to Poynter, 1 run, full on the pads, the batsman whips it to deep midwicket for a single

Ireland 140/3   AD Poynter 41* (24b 1x4 4x6)

16.1

van der Gugten to Poynter, FOUR, full toss on the pads, Poynted is rocketing towards his fifty..He whips it neatly into the gap at deep square leg. The fielder put in the dive, but the batsman could have frankly played it anywhere

16.2

van der Gugten to Poynter, FOUR, Poynter, Poynter! He gets another juicy full toss and picks his spot beautifully.. A boundary in the same area again..

16.3

van der Gugten to Poynter, 1 run, he gets to his half-century with a soft push to cover.. He has taken just 27 balls to get there, first one for him. What an effort this has been! Silent. Effective

Jamil to Poynter, 1 run, comes down the pitch and punches the length delivery to long off

17.4

Jamil to Poynter, no run, dropped by the bowler! Well, this was a difficult chance high to his right! He beat the batsman with the slower delivery, and the batsman's slow shot beat the bowler's timing of the jump.. He got a hand but couldn't hold on

17.5

Ireland 160/3   AD Poynter 52* (31b 3x4 4x6)

19.2

Jamil to Poynter, 1 leg bye, a good offcutter from round the stumps, the batsman gets hit on the thigh pad but takes a single
