4.1 to KJ O'Brien, ugly shot from O'Brin trying to hit a ball which hit the off-stump over the leg-side. 22/3
4.5 to AC Botha, another wicket and it's the in-form Botha gone this time, getting an inside edge onto his stumps as he looked to guide the ball to third man. 23/4
1.3 to NJ O'Brien, stunning catch by Pitcher at mid-off, O'Brien drove down the ground and the ball looked to be clearing Pitcher, he dove to his left to take a fantastic one-handed catch. 7/1
3.1 to WTS Porterfield, gone leg-before! It looked very straight as Porterfield tried to turn a full ball into the leg-side, poor shot from the Irish skipper. 16/2
8.1 to AR Cusack, and he's gone straight after the break, it was short but Cusack top-edged the pull shot and the ball balooned to third man. 41/5
8.2 to GC Wilson, another one gone - this is terrible for Ireland! Down the wicket but the ball spins past the edge and Edness whips off the bails. 41/6

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Chris Foggo, 0.1 ov), 2-0 (David Hemp, 0.3 ov), 3-14 (Steven Outerbridge, 2.3 ov), 4-21 (James Celestine, 3.4 ov), 5-25 (Irving Romaine, 5.4 ov), 6-26 (Oliver Pitcher, 6.2 ov), 7-31 (Jekon Edness, 7.1 ov), 8-37 (George O'Brien, 7.5 ov)
0.1 to CR Foggo, caught! What a start for Ireland, Foggo tied to swing the ball through the leg-side, he got a top edge and Fourie took the catch at short third-man. 0/1
0.3 to DL Hemp, gone again! The small ground are jubilant! On a good length outside off stump, Hemp got a thin edge through to O'Brien. 0/2
2.3 to SD Outerbridge, another one for Connell, straight and full to trap Outerbridge straight in front- as plum as plum can be!. 14/3
3.4 to JJ Celestine, big drama in Belfast, Celestine down the wicket and the ballnips between bat and pad- O'Brien removing the bails in double-quick time. 21/4
5.4 to IH Romaine, bowled! Tries to cut a ball which was much too full and he looses his off-stump. The tension around Stormont is surreal. 25/5
7.5 to GH O'Brien, he tried to repeat the shot but this time the ball went high rather than long, Connell took a juggling catch at the third attempt on the square-leg boundary. 37/8
