IK Pathan to Porterfield, no run, follows it up with a perfect outswinger, luring the batsman into a near-fatal prod. Dhoni collects.

0.2

0.3

IK Pathan to Porterfield, 1 run, charges down the track, drives to left of mid-off where Yuvraj lunges to make the stop and fire in a throw

0.4

IK Pathan to Bray, no run, full and swinging away sharply, left alone

0.5

IK Pathan to Bray, no run, moves around the crease, Irfan keeps it simple and hurls across yet another outswinger and beats the bat

Ireland 2/0   IK Pathan 1-0-2-0

2.1

IK Pathan to Porterfield, 2 runs, full and on the middle and leg, lunges out to scoop it over mid-on

2.2

2.4

IK Pathan to Wilson, no run, full length delivery, tilting in from outside off, driven on the front foot to cover

2.5

IK Pathan to Wilson, no run, 130.4 kmph length delivery angling away, Wilson tries to cut but the ball rushes past the edge

2.6

IK Pathan to Wilson, 2 runs, doesn't quite lean forward to get close to the line of the delivery and hence takes out the bottom-hand off the handle as he goes for the square drives and gets it past backward point

Ireland 9/1   IK Pathan 2-0-7-0

15.1

IK Pathan to White, SIX, pulled away for a six. It was the short one and he backed away to go for the pull, got a thick top edge but the ball kept sailing into the night

15.2

IK Pathan to White, 1 run, from round the stumps, fullish, around off stump, pushed to extra cover

15.3

IK Pathan to Cusack, 1 run, length delivery, skidding in from outside off, under-edges the cut and the ball rolls towards Dhoni but despite his direct hit at the striker's end they get home

15.4

IK Pathan to White, 2 runs, moves outside off to paddle, Irfan serves a full toss on the off stump, lapped around the corner for a single

15.5

IK Pathan to White, 1 run, almost a yorker , squeezed out to cover point

15.6

IK Pathan to Cusack, FOUR, back of length, homing in on the off stump, Cusack should have been cramped up in theory but he arched back at the last minute, made room somehow and unfurled a very skillful cut past backward point. Ishant ran around from wide third man, dived but only pushed it outside the boundary.

Ireland 88/7   IK Pathan 3-0-22-0
