IK Pathan to Porterfield, 1 wide, starts off with a big wide down the leg side. Did the ball slip? It was very wide


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


IK Pathan to Porterfield, no run, Poretfield makes sure he gets that front foot well out and across, close to the line of the outswinger and drives to cover


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


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


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


IK Pathan to Bray, no run, full and straight this time, lunges across to push it out to mid-on

Ireland 2/0   IK Pathan 1-0-2-0

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


IK Pathan to Porterfield, 1 run, backs away to punch on the up but it falls just short of mid-off


IK Pathan to Wilson, no run, pushes it across Wilson who allows it to pass through to Dhoni


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


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


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

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


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


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


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


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


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
