1.1

van der Gugten to Stirling, no run, short of length delivery on the stumps, the batsman defends it off the back foot

1.2

van der Gugten to Stirling, 2 runs, wonderfully timed through cover! The batsman goes down on his knees and crunches the fuller delivery to the off side, but there is protection in the deep

1.3

van der Gugten to Stirling, no run, comes forward and punches the length delivery straight to cover

1.4

van der Gugten to Stirling, no run, no movement of the feet, he tries to heave this length delivery over the on side and is lucky that it goes over the stumps after he had missed it

1.5

van der Gugten to Stirling, FOUR, that is some punchy stroke! Only a hint of width and the batsman wallops it through backward point, all along the ground

PR Stirling c Borren b van der Gugten 7 (14m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 77.77

Ireland 28/1   PR Stirling 7 (9b 1x4)
