4.1 to GM Hamilton, two wickets in two balls and Ireland are jubilant, Hamilton came down the pitch to play oer the infield on the leg-side- he skied the ball in the air, where Botha took the catch at midwicket. 29/2
3.6 to RR Watson, this time he's gone! It was another full ball which was driven to mid-on where Strydon took a smart catch above his head. 29/1
5.4 to CJO Smith, gone! He went for a big heave into the leg-side but the ball was too full and it hit middle stump. 31/3
16.2 to GI Maiden, this is getting dodgy for the Scots. It was a straight ball that Maiden tried to play through square-leg, it looked absolutely plum. 94/7
16.6 to JAR Blain, gone! Another lbw as Blain played accross the line, it again looked very straight but height may have been an issue, not for the Umpire though and Blain is sent packing. 98/8
18.5 to GD Drummond, tries to hit over mid-off, a thick outside edge skies the ball into the covers where Porterfield pouches it. 108/9
9.4 to KJ Coetzer, another wicket and that's a big one. The ball was on a good length and a nagging line outside the off stump, Coetzer tried to defend on the back foot baut got an inside edge bck onto his stumps. 52/4
15.2 to RD Berrington, the partnership is broken as Berrington steps away from his stump to hit over the off-side, he got an edge and the ball went high in the air, where Niall O'Brien took an easy catch. 92/5
15.5 to NFI McCallum, another one goes! Just a bi shorter from Botha, taking a thin edge as McCallum tried to cut. They all go up and he's on his way. 92/6
19.6 to JD Nel, a wicket from the final delivery! It was full and Nel tried to hit over mid-on, he could only find McCallan who took a safe catch. 117/10

Fall of wickets: 1-15 (William Porterfield, 3.1 ov), 2-33 (Gary Wilson, 6.5 ov), 3-84 (Niall O'Brien, 14.5 ov), 4-89 (Kevin O'Brien, 15.5 ov), 5-100 (Andre Botha, 17.3 ov), 6-104 (Trent Johnston, 18.3 ov)
14.5 to NJ O'Brien, Scotland get a breakthrough! O'Brien came down the pitch and got a thin edge through to Smith, who took an easy catch. 84/3
3.1 to WTS Porterfield, he goes for the same shot as Wilson but is bowled by a leg-stump yorker, well bowled by Nel but needless shot by Porterfield with Ireland in command. 15/1
18.3 to DT Johnston, OUT, gone! That is a big wicket and Scotland may just be back in this. Botha came down the wicket but Maiden saw him coming but bowled a flatter ball which hit off stump. Big celebrations from Scotland. 104/6
6.5 to GC Wilson, got him! Spinning between bat and pad as Wilson aimed a flick through the leg-side after advacing down the pitch. Game on in Belfast!. 33/2
15.5 to KJ O'Brien, lovely bowling from Rodgers, he really threw that ball up, inviting O'Brien down the pitch and spinning past the edge to give Colin Smith an easy stumping. 89/4
17.3 to AC Botha, gone! That is a big wicket and Scotland may just be back in this. Botha came down the wicket but Maiden saw him coming but bowled a flatter ball which hit off stump. Big celebrations from Scotland. 100/5
