Australia A won by 93 runs
Player Of The Match

After four days play here at Stormont Australia A have won the game by 93 runs.

Even though we lost alot of overs to the rain it was still a very exciting game. Lots of cleaning hitting was on show from both sides.

We had centuries from both Steve Smith and Paul Stirling. We also had a a five wicket hall from Max Sorensen. For his great hitting in the second innings Nic Maddinson has just been named man of the match

So that just leaves me to thank you for following my commentary over the past four days. This is Justin Smyth saying goodbye from a Sunny Stormont.

Siddle to Poynter, OUT

thats it. Its all over. Its another short ball and Poynter flashes at the ball outside offstump. It takes the outside edge and Haddin takes a smart catch.
