Played at Providence Stadium, Guyana (neutral venue)
4 May 2010 (20-over match)

KJ O'Brien to Lumb, OUT, gone! O'Brien strikes on his first ball! Nothing delivery, shortish and on leg stump, Lumb whipped it firmly but the giant Boyd Rankin intercepted with a good low catch at short fine leg

MJ Lumb c Rankin b KJ O'Brien 14 (19m 11b 3x4 0x6) SR: 127.27

England 24/1   C Kieswetter 8* (14b)   KJ O'Brien 0.1-0-0-1

Johnston to Kieswetter, OUT, well, this is close! Kieswetter whips a fullish ball to short midwicket and sets off for a suicidal single, but a throw zips in in a flash, leaving him sprawling and diving back in, very very close, the toe end of the bat could be in by a frame, but the bat looks to have bounced up.... it's probably out... and given!

C Kieswetter run out 13 (29m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 76.47

England 32/2   KP Pietersen 3* (5b)   DT Johnston 2.3-0-12-0

Johnston to Collingwood, OUT, gone! Johnston strikes! Ireland are all over England here! Another ball into the off-stump channel, Collingwood pushed at it, and it flew to Botha at slip, who this time makes no mistake. Well, well, well

PD Collingwood c Botha b Johnston 0 (1m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 32/3   KP Pietersen 3* (5b)   DT Johnston 3-0-12-1

KJ O'Brien to Pietersen, OUT, Pietersen departs! Massive moment for Ireland! Can you believe it? Short ball and Pietersen nailed his pull shot straight to the man at deep square. Just like yesterday

KP Pietersen c Mooney b KJ O'Brien 9 (25m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 49/4   EJG Morgan 10* (9b 1x4)   KJ O'Brien 1.4-0-9-2

Rankin to Wright, OUT, Rankin does the trick! It was a full toss, Wright skipped down the track and leg side of the ball, normally he would back himself to get all of it, but in the end it came off the toe end to mid off where Porterfield held a decent catch over his head

LJ Wright c Porterfield b Rankin 20 (22m 24b 0x4 1x6) SR: 83.33

England 90/5   EJG Morgan 29* (26b 3x4)   WB Rankin 2.2-0-14-1

Rankin to Bresnan, OUT, well you sensed that was coming, Bresnan goes for another big heave, can't connect cleanly and it goes straight to long off, importantly it's another dotball

TT Bresnan c Mooney b Rankin 5 (8m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

England 109/6   EJG Morgan 42* (34b 5x4)   WB Rankin 3.4-0-22-2

Botha to Morgan, OUT, can't get it away this time, ends a crucial and excellent innings from Morgan, another slower ball, Morgan tries to smash it over long on but can't generate the power and it caught on the long on boundary

EJG Morgan c Wilson b Botha 45 (53m 37b 5x4 0x6) SR: 121.62

England 115/7   GP Swann 2* (2b)   AC Botha 3.3-0-24-1

Botha to Swann, 1 run, OUT, Swann wanders down the wicket, and clips it down to long on, Yardy tries to come back for the second but a brilliant direct-hit beats him, he had to go for it, but it was brilliant fielding

MH Yardy run out 0 (1m 0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

England 118/8   GP Swann 5* (4b)   AC Botha 3.5-0-27-1
