Ireland v Netherlands

Netherlands won by 6 wickets (with 37 balls remaining)

0.6

Swart to Porterfield, FOUR, here comes the first boundary! Not exactly where he wanted it from though. He looks to cut and gets thick outside edge

Ireland 6/0   WTS Porterfield 5* (5b 1x4)   MR Swart 1-0-6-0

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

Ireland 12/0   PR Stirling 7* (6b 1x4)   T van der Gugten 0.5-0-6-0

2.3

Jamil 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

Ireland 20/0   WTS Porterfield 13* (8b 2x4)   MAA Jamil 0.3-0-8-0

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

Ireland 32/1   WTS Porterfield 25* (12b 3x4 1x6)   T van der Gugten 1.3-0-11-1

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

Ireland 36/1   WTS Porterfield 29* (14b 4x4 1x6)   T van der Gugten 1.5-0-15-1

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

Ireland 48/1   WTS Porterfield 39* (19b 5x4 2x6)   Mudassar Bukhari 0.4-0-5-0

6.6

TLW Cooper to Joyce, FOUR, this is smartly chipped over extra cover! Again, what timing from the batsman.. Looked like a mere push, but it lands just a couple of meters inside the rope

Ireland 56/1   EC Joyce 8* (9b 1x4)   TLW Cooper 1-0-8-0

13.3

Borren to O'Brien, FOUR, short ball on the middle and leg, poor again from Borren. He doesn't have the pace to scare anyone. The batsman just smacks it to deep backward square leg boundary

Ireland 104/3   KJ O'Brien 5* (2b 1x4)   PW Borren 1.3-0-17-0

14.2

Mudassar Bukhari to Poynter, FOUR, this was actually a very good delivery, a yorker outside off. The batsman though just squeezes it out towards off and beats the fielder at short third man

Ireland 110/3   AD Poynter 19* (17b 1x4 1x6)   Mudassar Bukhari 2.2-0-17-0

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

Ireland 144/3   AD Poynter 45* (25b 2x4 4x6)   T van der Gugten 2.1-0-19-1

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..

Ireland 148/3   AD Poynter 49* (26b 3x4 4x6)   T van der Gugten 2.2-0-23-1

18.6

van Beek to O'Brien, FOUR, wonderful shot this one! KOB was making room by moving to the leg side, but the bowler delivery this full and wide outside off and he had to stretch to reach it. He not only manages to get some bat on it, gets enough to power it over point

Ireland 179/3   KJ O'Brien 41* (15b 2x4 4x6)   LV van Beek 1-0-18-0

19.5

Jamil 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

Ireland 189/3   AD Poynter 57* (37b 4x4 4x6)   MAA Jamil 3.5-0-26-1
