ICC WT20 2010 - West Indies Vs Ireland Highlights

West Indies hammer Ireland by 70 runs

The West Indies denied Ireland any chance of another World Cup shock after they bowled the Irish out for just 68 runs to seal a comprehensive 70 run victory in Ghana.

Having been set a total of 139 for victory Kemar Roach and Ravi Rampaul blow away Ireland’s top order leaving the Irish 11-3 before a brief ran shower delayed the game for 30 minutes.

Having suffered two batting collapses during their two warm up games Ireland’s woes continued as they were bowled out for just ** to hand the West Indies a easy victory.

Irish teenager George Dockrell picked up three wickets as Ireland gave themselves every chance of creating another World Cup upset by restricting the West Indies to 138-9.Having won the toss the West Indies got off to a quiet start thanks to the Irish bowlers who took advantage of the slow turning wicket which suited the strengths of the associate country.

With Chris Gayle ruled out because of a sore back Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Andre Fletcher opened the batting for the West Indies and the pair initially struggled to score on a wicket which favoured the Irish bowlers.

The pair got off to a cautious start scoring just 9 runs from the first two overs before Chanderpaul broke through hitting consecutive boundaries off the bowling of Boyd Rankin.After conceding back to back boundaries Boyd remained calm and hit back with a slightly slower delivery which cramped Chanderpaul (14) for space in the crease and he top edged the ball to Gary Wilson at cover point to leave the West Indies 19-1.

With Ireland celebrating the break through Dwayne Bravo joined Fletcher at the crease but the stand in skipper’s innings only lasted 10 balls before his cameo off 18 was ended.

Having already hit two massive sixes Bravo tried another big shot off the bowling of Alex Cusack but the ball held up on the slow wicket and after juggling the ball on his elbow, leg and belly Cusack took the catch to leave the West Indies 43-2.

With two wickets already down Fletcher, and new partner Ramnaresh Sarwan relieved the pressure which was growing with a partnership of 34 before the Irish hit back one again.

17 year Dockrell was brought into the attack and the spinner struck in his second over to remove Fletcher (19) and Sarwan (24) in the space of three balls to reduce the hosts to 77-4.With the runs drying up and the pressure mounting Ireland struck again as Rankin dismissed Denesh Ramdin (1) before Dockrell picked up his third wicket of an unbelievable spell to remove Narsingh Deonarine (10).

With 6 wickets gone and only 93 runs on the board Kieron Pollard finally came to the crease with only four overs remaining. After enjoying a successful IPL tournament with the Mumbai Indians the pressure was now on Pollard to delivery.With all eyes on Pollard, Darren Sammy turned up the heat on the Irish by dispatching Trent Johnston for two big sixes as the pressure was lifted in the 17th over.

The Irish though bounced back once again to show why they are regarded as the best associate country in international cricket. Medium pacer Andre Botha struck back to take the wickets of Pollard (8) and Sammy (30) in the space of three delivers to reduce the West Indies to 127-8.Cusack was given the responsibility of bowling the final 6 balls and he produced a perfect over by conceding just 8 runs as the Irish gave themselves every chance of creating another World Cup upset.

Despite restricting the West Indies to a total of 138 the Irish still had a tricky run chase to undertake and they got off to the worst possible start losing three early wickets as the West Indies fast bowlers tore through Ireland’s top order.

Having hit the first ball of the game for a boundary, skipper William Porterfield was the first player dismissed when he edged Kemar Roach behind from just the second delivery of the innings.

Paul Stirling (0) and Niall O’Brien (4) followed in the next over after Ravi Rampaul struck twice in the space of 3 balls to put the West Indies in complete control.With Roach and Rampaul in such rampant form the Irish were saved from any further carnage by a rain shower which forced the players off the field and the covers on.

The game was delayed for about 30 minutes but it didn’t change Ireland’s fortunes as the fourth wicket of the innings soon fell once play had resumed.Alex Cusack became the fourth Irish player dismissed and the third victim of Rampul who struck 7 balls after the restart to leave Ireland 16-4.

With the outcome of the game already virtually decided Kevin O’Brien and Gary Wilson held the West Indies at bay for almost 5 overs until Darren Sammy struck to remove O’Brien (9) reducing Ireland to 39-5.

The carnage continued as Irelands batting woes depend after Trent Johnston (5) Wilson (17) and Mooney John (1) all departed cheaply to leave the Irish 61-8.
Sammy picked up his second wicket of the night when Boyd Rankin was caught by Ramdin to leave the West Indies on the verge of victory which was completed by Sammy when George Dickrell was caught by Ramdin.

Full Match: IPL 2010 MATCH30 - KKR vs DC, 2010-04-01

Kiwis fight back to beat Sri Lanka in thriller
Daniel Vettori and Nathan McCullum held their nerve to record a thrilling 2 wicket victory over Sri Lanka in the opening game of this years Twenty20 World Cup in the Caribbean.

On a slow turning wicket at the Providence Stadium in Guyana Mahela Jayawardene played a patient innings to score a valuable half century which helped Sri Lanka reach 135-6 against New Zealand.

The Kiwis struggled as well on a bowler friendly wicket but they held their never when it mattered most to win the game with 1 ball to spare.

After the loss of two earlier wickets Jayawardene and Dinesh Chandimal built a third wicket partnership of 59 to help Sri Lanka recover after Tillakeratne Dilshan and Kumar Sangakkara were dismissed cheaply.

Having won the toss Sri Lanka decided to bat first but it was New Zealand who got off to the better start thanks to their slow bowlers who controlled the game on a slow turning wicket.

The Kiwis opened the bowling with Nathan McCullum, the off-spinner utilised the slow bounce and even slower outfield conceding just 2 runs with Dilshan struggerling to score with the pace taken off the ball.

Dilshan continued to struggle against Shane Bond in the next over, the opener had a disappointing IPL and his poor form continued when he was bowled by Jacob Oram in the 5th over having score 3 runs from 19 balls.

Skipper Sangakkara (4) soon followed after he was bowled by Scott Styris to leave Sri Lanka struggerling on 44-2 after 8.2 overs.

Despite losing two wickets Jayawardene was still at the crease, partnered by Chandimal the former Sri Lanka skipper continued his important contribution completing his third Twenty20 international century in the 13th over.

With Sri Lanka forcing their way back into the game New Zealand made an important breakthrough when Chandimal (29) was caught out on the boundary by Ross Taylor to leave Sri Lanka 103-3.

Jayawardene (81) was joined at the crease by Chamara Kapugedera but his brilliant innings was ended at the start of the 18th over by Tim Southee thanks to a well taken catch by Nathan McCullum at deep mid-wicket.

Bond picked up his first wicket of the innings when he dismissed Kapugedera (11) in the final over as Sri Lanka just lost their way a little on the way to a total of 135.

With Muttiah Muralitharan and Sanath Jayasuriya in the line up Sri Lanka would have felt confident of defending such a low total.The Kiwis run chase didn’t get of to the best start after big hitting Brendon McCullum was dismissed in the first over by Angelo Matthews who opened the innings with a maiden.

The early lose of McCullum didn’t effect the Kiwis, Jesse Ryder was joined at the crease Martin Guptill and the pair built a partnership of 62 runs which put New Zealand in complete control with the run rate hovering around 7.0 an over.With a comfortable victory on the cards Sri Lanka hit back taking two wickets in the space of 9 balls to give themselves a chance of claiming the victory.

Muttiah Muralitharan made the first break through to remove Ryder (42) in the 8th over, having smashed Muralitharan for a huge six at the start of his spell Ryder attempted the same shot two balls later but was bowled by a slightly quicker ball.Guptill soon followed when he was bowled by Jayasuriya to leave the Kiwis 66-3.

The Kiwis were starting to struggle as the runs started to dry up thank to some superb bowling by Muralitharan and Jayasuriya. The veteran spinners took all of the pace off the ball as the wicket offered little to the batsman.

The wickets brought Sri Lanka back into the game, and with the run rate and pressure increasing they struck again to remove Taylor (9) and Styris (17) to leave the Kiwis 96-5.

Jacob Oram came to the crease to join skipper Daniel Vettori with New Zealand needing another 40 runs from just 22 balls to claim victory.The big hitting all rounder wasted little time smashing the second ball he faced for a huge six, he repeated the shot from the very next ball to give the Kiwis some much need momentum.

With two overs to go the Kiwis had done superbly to get back into the game but Sri Lanka struck back once again picking up the wickets of Oram (15) and Gareth Hopkins (1) to set up a tight finish with New Zealand needing another 19 runs from just 10 balls.

Despite losing two wickets in the 18th over New Zealand managed to score 10 runs from it to leave then needing 10 runs from the last 6 balls of the game.

Malinga, regarded as one of the world’s best death bowlers was given the responsibility of bowling the last over but he was unable to stop the Kiwis claiming a thrilling victory.
