World T20 - 12th match, First Round Group B

Ireland v Netherlands

Netherlands won by 6 wickets (with 37 balls remaining)

2.4

Jamil 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

Ireland 26/0   WTS Porterfield 19* (9b 2x4 1x6)   MAA Jamil 0.4-0-14-0

4.4

Swart to Porterfield, SIX, whoaa! He just moves to the leg side to give himself some room and slaps it over long off with ridiculous ease! How did that travel so far?

Ireland 43/1   WTS Porterfield 35* (16b 4x4 2x6)   MR Swart 1.4-0-13-0

10.1

Seelaar to Joyce, SIX, he comes down the pitch and gets a juicy high full toss, no problems in hammering that over deep square leg with a heavy swing of the bat

Ireland 77/2   EC Joyce 20* (17b 1x4 1x6)   PM Seelaar 1.1-0-12-0

13.1

Borren to Poynter, SIX, poor first delivery, this is a full toss down the leg side and the batsman just helps it on its way, flicking it all the way to the boundary.. It hits the rope flush on the skirting

Ireland 99/3   AD Poynter 13* (12b 1x6)   PW Borren 1.1-0-12-0

14.4

Mudassar Bukhari to O'Brien, SIX, that's in the arc and it's out of the park! Walloped over long on with utter ease..

Ireland 117/3   KJ O'Brien 12* (4b 1x4 1x6)   Mudassar Bukhari 2.4-0-24-0

15.3

Swart to Poynter, SIX, Poynter gets the length to get under! It's a half-volley and the batsman whacks it over deep midwicket for a big one

Ireland 127/3   AD Poynter 28* (21b 1x4 2x6)   MR Swart 3.3-0-26-0

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

Ireland 133/3   AD Poynter 34* (22b 1x4 3x6)   MR Swart 3.4-0-32-0

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

Ireland 139/3   AD Poynter 40* (23b 1x4 4x6)   MR Swart 3.5-0-38-0

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   KJ O'Brien 22* (9b 1x4 2x6)   T van der Gugten 3-0-32-1

18.1

van Beek to O'Brien, SIX, wow! how? This if a low full toss outside off and the batsman slices it over point.. all the way for a six.. how easy it can be

Ireland 167/3   KJ O'Brien 30* (12b 1x4 3x6)   LV van Beek 0.1-0-6-0

18.2

van Beek to O'Brien, SIX, this is not a driving range! But it doesn't matter for KOB, who murders a full toss way way over the long on boundary..

Ireland 173/3   KJ O'Brien 36* (13b 1x4 4x6)   LV van Beek 0.2-0-12-0
