Steven Welsh2358923.8610012100
49.4 to AD Poynter, gone! Poynter's innings comes to an end with a fine edge through to Bhatti as he pressed forward. He stuck in there well but maybe time for the big hitting middle order as Ireland try to bat towards a declaration. 142/4
83.2 to KJ O'Brien, gone this time! Trying to clear the man at long-off but he doesn't quite get hold of it and Qaiser Ali takes the catch well inside the rope- fantastic innings from O'Brien. 296/5
Eion Katchay1204513.75494010
84.2 to DT Johnston, another one goes- Johnston out in the persuit of quick runs. It was a short ball but top-edged a pull shot and Katchay took a tricky catch off his own bowling. 301/6
Sanjayan Thuraisingam1352912.23644000
19.5 to R Strydom, gone this time! Cutting back into Strydom as he played on the back foot, it looked very straight but height may have been an issue, not for the Umpire though who had no hesitation in raising the finger. 64/1
Sunil Dhaniram1734812.82795100
30.3 to PR Stirling, gone! Disappointment for Sterling, he had done all the hard work and gave it away sweeping at a straight one. He was some distance down the wicket but Umpire Prasad was happy it would have it- big breakthrough for Canada. 88/2

18.3 to Qaiser Ali, gone! Qaiser Ali doesn't like it but he has to go, prodding forward again he get what sounded like a thin edge through to McAllister, the batsman obviously though the sound was bat onto pad, unfortunately for him Umpire Prasad doesn't agree. 46/4
22.5 to AL Kandappah, very good catch by White at third slip sends Kandappa packing! It was a full ball which he tried to drive, alittle movement away fins the edge and it flies into the slips where White dives to his left to hang on one-handed. 52/5
Kevin O'Brien64500.83341000
Kyle McCallan2065322.65987100
13.4 to Mohammad Iqbal, gone! Good catch at bad-pad by Poynter as Iqbal comes forward, he got a thick edge onto his pad and the ball lobbed up to Poynter who held on at the second attempt. 27/2
