Ireland v Netherlands

Netherlands won by 6 wickets (with 37 balls remaining)

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

1.6

van der Gugten to Stirling, no run, comes forward and punches the length delivery firmly to mid-off

Ireland 12/0   T van der Gugten 1-0-6-0

3.1

van der Gugten to Porterfield, 1 run, back of length delivery on off, the batsman nudges it to backward point off the back foot for a single

3.2

van der Gugten to Stirling, OUT, that's the first strike for Netherlands! Poor shot by Stirling as the team was progressing rather well. He tries to throw his bat at a short of length delivery but gets a thick top edge that settles into the hands of the point fielder

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

3.3

van der Gugten to Porterfield, FOUR, this is a sumptuous drive from the captain! Just leans into this length delivery and pushes it through extra cover, the timing takes it through to the boundary. Seemed like just a push

3.4

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

3.5

van der Gugten to Porterfield, FOUR, another one through covers! Porterfield is looking in good nick. Nothing wrong with the delivery again, it's just a length delivery and the batsman caresses it through the gap

3.6

van der Gugten to Porterfield, no run, back of length now, the batsman defends it to point

Ireland 36/1   T van der Gugten 2-0-15-1

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

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   T van der Gugten 3-0-32-1
