2.1

Ahsan Malik to Porterfield, 2 runs, good tight delivery on off stump, the batsman steers it through backward point and comes back for a quick second

Ahsan Malik to Porterfield, 2 runs, on the pads, this time he picks up another couple to the other side, whipped to deep backward square leg

2.3

Ahsan Malik to Porterfield, FOUR, this is in the air but in the gap too! He didn't look entirely in control as he played at this a touch early, but it went through wide mid-on and races to the boundary

2.4

Ahsan Malik 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

2.6

Ahsan Malik to Stirling, no run, length delivery outside off, the batsman pushes it straight to point

Ireland 27/0   Ahsan Malik 1-0-15-0
9.1

Ahsan Malik 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

WTS Porterfield b Ahsan Malik 47 (36m 32b 5x4 2x6) SR: 146.87

Ahsan Malik to Joyce, no run, allows the back of length delivery to come to him, defends it to cover

9.4

Ahsan Malik to Joyce, 1 run, slow off the pitch again, the batsman has to wait a bit before he whips it down to long on from outside off

9.5

Ahsan Malik 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

Ahsan Malik 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   Ahsan Malik 2-0-17-1
17.1

Ahsan Malik to Poynter, no run, this one doesn't get up much after pitching on length, slides under the batsman's swing

17.3

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

17.4

Ahsan Malik 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

Ahsan Malik to Poynter, 1 run, fuller on off, the batsman digs it out to cover

17.6

Ahsan Malik 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

19.1

Ahsan Malik to Poynter, no run, he could have been run out twice! First the bowler misses the throw as Poynter gives up after taking a few steps down the pitch.. The keeper then gathers the throw and he too, misses.. Poynter can't believe his luck

Ahsan Malik 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

Ahsan Malik to Poynter, 4 leg byes, another good cutter! This one beats the batsman's waft towards leg side, but hit the thigh pad and is deflected fine to the off side.. a boundary again..

19.5

Ahsan Malik to Poynter, FOUR, another one! This brings up the century of the partnership as well! The batsman gets it off the middle as he whacks it to deep midwicket.. The fielder dives forward, but is not able to get under it.. It slides to the boundary

19.6

Ahsan Malik to Poynter, OUT, he looks for the same area at deep midwicket but holes out this time, taken easily by the fielder
