    26.5 inside edge and another soft dismissal! Joseph will be pleased with that after his last over. This was a good ball but nowhere near the stumps, pretty short and well outside off, it rises and naps back in sharply, Stirling wants to help it to third man but only manages to edge it to off stump. Instant cry of anguish from him because he has to go back 129/4
    4.3 bounces him out! The ball climbs up towards his armpit. Delany has nowhere to go. He can't evade it. He's cramped. He goes for the pull and he just gloves it to short fine leg 25/1
    8.1 what a ball! He gets it to nip in off the pitch and middle stump takes a beating. Joseph runs in and unlike the other fast bowlers pitches it up and immediately gets movement. Balbirnie looks to play a drive on the up and his inside edge is beaten 51/2
    22.6 straight to mid-off. That's just poor shot selection from Porterfield. He was looking good there, Ireland needed that partnership, but he simply handed a straightforward catch off a length delivery to Joseph 110/3
    30.6 Joseph does get his wicket in the over, thanks to a needless heave from O'Brien, and the top edge is taken at fine leg. Absolutely no need for that shot, back of length and coming in, he swings the last ball of the over after surviving earlier in the over, doesn't middle it and it goes high enough for Cottrell to run in from fine leg and get under it in time 154/6
    28.1 there's a gully in place and he gets a dolly! Ireland falling apart again. Short ball rising on Tucker, excellent use of height from Joseph. Tucker was taken by surprise and stuck his bat in front of his face, and the leasing edge lobbed up to Lewis' right 135/5
    44.1 edged and taken. The left-armer's angle works the moment he pitches the ball up and makes the batsman drive. 210/8
    40.1 direct hit and he's gone this time. Adair goes for the big hit, when the ball keeps climbing on him. He's cramped. He mis-hits it to mid-off. He's lucky he's not caught. And yet he still goes for the run. He's miles out as Pooran nails the target 192/7
    47.3 plants his front leg in front of his stumps and swings right across the line. Misses. Cottrell hits the pad and the finger goes up straight away. McBrine reviews but it looks like he'll lose it. Yep three reds. 224/9

    18.2 Appeal for lbw and umpire Wilson's given it! Shai Hope reviews it though. He is a good deal across his stumps on the front foot and ends up missing an offbreak that beats his inside edge. Pins him on the front pad in front of middle stump. HawkEye shows umpire's call on hitting the wickets and that was - all together now - O-U-T. 76/4
    6.2 the pressure has worked, Lewis sweeps against the turn and lobs a catch to short fine leg! The runs had dried up, he went for a scoring shot but it resulted in a top edge and Rankin did very well to dive forward and get both his hands under the ball 17/1
    7.5 short ball, top edge and taken by the keeper! Hetmyer went for the swat-pull but the marginal extra bounce gets the top half of the bat and Tucker runs a fair distance to his right with fine leg also running in, but the keeper takes it safely in the end. Big wicket for Ireland 24/2
    8.5 loud appeal after a sound for caught behind, finger goes up, he's not reviewing. The delivery nipped in after pitching outside off and looks like it touched the inside edge before landing in the gloves. The Ireland players are very confident, King goes up to Hope and with only a few seconds left to review, he decides not to and Hope cannot believe it. Looks like Hope wanted him to review, but if King knew about the edge why did he consult Hope? UltraEdge confirms a faint edge 24/3
    26.1 bowled im! Lovely work from Singh, coming from around the wicket, angling the ball so sharply into the left-hander. It pitches on leg stump. Pooran plays for a bit of turn, but there's way more than he bargains for. His outside edge is beaten and his stumps take a hit 140/5
    27.5 caught and bowled! That might be the game! McCarthy goes short. It sticks in the pitch. The ball hasn't done that all night. But it does now. Pollard is early into his flick. It lobs off the splice of his bat. McCarthy rushes forward, dives to his right, gets it in both hands and is instantly mobbed by his team-mates 142/6
    28.4 taken at midwicket! The slip fielder had just moved to midwicket, and Simi Singh darts in a flat and quick delivery. It wasn't a great ball, was very short, but the pace hardly gave Shepherd any time to go back and pull properly. Doesn't middle it and Stirling dives to his right for a good, low catch 148/7
    38.5 edged to slip! The fifty partnership is broken, Ireland are back in the game. McBrine gets a bit of turn with a length delivery, Pierre stays back and wants to push it to off but only gets an outside edge to slip where it goes straight into Stirling's safe hands 200/8

    47.4 and he's chipped a catch to midwicket because of the pace variation! Slower delivery, short too, so it takes time to reach Joseph who has opened his stance already and then slaps the ball gently to midwicket. Like a friendly slap 232/9
