This over is hurting.
This over is hurting.
That one didn't work. 16 off four balls.
We're not arrogant, we're just better.
Yuvraj will be going home with the motm award in his bag.
That was a pretty creble performance. Another 35 runs on the board and if O'Brien had made that catch with 5 Indian wickets down it'd have been more interesting.
Another run out was costly. Porterfield and NO'B were going great guns. Only decent partnership unfortuantely.
Morning all. As others say, a credible effort against the Indians although we needed 250 to really test them.
Is Johnston injured, I see he bowled only five overs?
Trying to End Hypocrisy?
Porterfield and N O'Brien looked to be the best equipped partnership to add to the run total and both their dismissals were hard to take. It was a brilliant piece of fielding that led to O'Brien getting run out.
Hard to say what was the effect of Trent going off injured, but in the time he was in there bowling, India were hurt the most.
News reports say he is off to hospital for a scan on a knee injury.
Does the cliche apply, Ireland will take more out of that game than India?
Maybe we will see the answer in the next matches.
Afair, we were hammered by both the WI and SA at the last WC. Both upcoming matches should give some idea of overall progress in the 4 years since and lessons learned during this tournament.
Should give the WIndies a close game, though all should be wise to our game plan and no-one will let us bat second now, given the choice. The Saffas, despite their struggles yesterday, are a class act and unless they've already qualified, wouldn't expect much there.
Got to hope the other teams, carry on taking points off each other. Starting with maybe Banglas beating Eng.& Wales.

"U've figured how to work the Google on the internet machine"
NZ have gone to town in the last 20 mins against Pakistan. They were doing next to nothing and then got 95 in 5 overs. mad suff. Unfortunately, it's hard to help thinking that Pakistan might be throwing it.
2 6s off the first two balls of the last over too. Caught on the boundary next ball.
Stuff this 20/20 mullarkey. One day cricket is great. Super WC so far.
"One day" cricket specifically refers to the 50-over game, which I assume was where Stutts was coming from.
Google's a bit contradictory on it actually, so you may well be right. I think - if incorrectly - the 50-over game is generally referred to "one-day", with the 20/20 called 20/20.
Anyways, I think that's what Stutts meant. We're allowed be a bit lax about our cricket terminaology here I think.
Are they not just both "Limited Overs"? 50 over games have gone over two days in the past due to weather delays, probably still could potentially depending on the competition. Having said that, One Day Internationals (ODI) is the standard terminology for the 50 over game at international level at least.
If you attack me with stupidity, I'll be forced to defend myself with sarcasm.
Meanwhile, back on the pitch, NZ are absolutely hammering Pakistan, who are now 70/6.
