ICC World Twenty20 - 12th match, Group A

India v Ireland

India won by 8 wickets (with 15 balls remaining)

3.4

Khan to Botha, FOUR, Top shot. It wasn't all that short in length but Botha, already standing well inside the crease, rocked back to cut it hard past backward point

Ireland 15/2   AC Botha 6* (3b 1x4)   Z Khan 1.4-0-8-2

4.1

I Sharma to Wilson, FOUR, nice. Very nice. It was full, very full, outside off and he placed his front foot out and square drove it through cover point

Ireland 21/3   GC Wilson 6* (5b 1x4)   I Sharma 0.1-0-4-0

8.1

Ojha to Mooney, FOUR, A boundary after 23 balls. Via a reverse sweep. It was flighted full on the middle and off and he got it past backward point

Ireland 38/4   JF Mooney 7* (6b 1x4)   PP Ojha 1.1-0-6-1

10.2

I Sharma to White, FOUR, lunges across, stabs the length delivery off the outside edge to third man. Yusuf rushes across and dives to his left but is unable to prevent the boundary

Ireland 53/5   AR White 4* (3b 1x4)   I Sharma 1.2-0-12-0

11.2

Harbhajan Singh to White, FOUR, Undaunted by the previous failure, he goes for another reverse sweep and connects superbly this time. This ball was fuller than the previous one.

Ireland 58/5   AR White 9* (9b 2x4)   Harbhajan Singh 2.2-0-11-1

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   AR Cusack 5* (3b 1x4)   IK Pathan 3-0-22-0

16.1

Khan to White, FOUR, shuffles outside off stump, Zak hurls a full toss and White chipped it superbly to deep backward square-leg boundary.
