It was a good finish to the game. Windies nearly snatched it with 27 off the 18th over but Ireland's bowlers held their nerve.

A good win for the Irish. I tend to think that fluke results in limited overs cricket are low scoring affairs, where the minnow stays within reach, rather than sustained high scorers. Stirling is the type of player who has that big innings in him, even if he his pretty erratic at international level.

The Windies scored 196/4 v SL in the first T20I today, winning by 25 runs. Doesn't tell the whole story as after the first power play SL were 56/5, Thomas taking 5/28 off his 3 overs. Thomas didn't bowl again as SL's 6th wicket partnership took them within needing 54 off 28, before the Windies wrapped up the match.

Watched some of the WI v SL T20 yesterday evening. Went to bed when SL were 100/4 in what seemed to be a dull game.

How wrong could I be? When WIs batted, Dananjaya takes a hat trick and then next over Pollard hits him for six sixes in an over.

And that was all in the powerplay too with the W Indies finishing it on a ridiculous 98-4!!

For some bizarre reason I was actually watching that match. Don't think I'll ever see a hat-trick and six sixes in the same game again.

I wonder if they had a look at every cricket scorecard ever produced around the world whether the same bowler has ever done that?

I know that in international cricket, six sixes in the over has only ever been achieved three times (now), with Yuvraj smashing Broad and the other one Herschelle Gibbs smashing a bowler from the Netherlands, I believe.

Broad has taken hat-tricks but not in the same match as the six sixes.

I don't know if it's happened in domestic one-day or T20 before but even that would surprise me... although you would expect as the general quality of cricket goes down, this kind of thing might be more likely...

Quite the turn around in the second match, as is often the case.

Fidel Edwards still going

Currently watching NZ v Bangladesh in a rain shortened match to 10 overs on a flat pitch in a rugby ground. NZ openers are causing carnage. The fielding is also woeful, first 5 overs gone for 69.

Turns out NZ could have declared 2 balls into the 6th over. I'm thinking 65 runs is quite a large winning margin in 10 over cricket!!

Some slog from Finn Allen.

The names of the New Zealand side further evolve into the line up of a folk/country music festival.

He was dropped 4 (Four) times and benefitted from a number of misfields too!! The Bangas were awful and whilst Cricinfo tries to make out these were tough chances, they really weren't.

horiful Islam to Allen, 2 runs
Difficult chance put down by Rubel running back from mid-off. Allen sliced this slower delivery over mid-off, no power behind it whatsoever. He was looking to absolutely muscle that away.

Shoriful Islam to Allen, 1 run
This is very, very, high. Dropped again as mid-off and mid-on converge. Soumya the fielder. Not easy with the lowlights but this was a steepler. No one looked like catching that.

Rubel to Allen, 1 run
Soumya puts down another, coming in from long-off. Tough chance though, did all the hard work in haring in and putting in a full-stretch dive but couldn't hold on. Allen was looking to muscle it away but didn't get power as he was cramped for room

Shoriful Islam to Allen, 2 runs
Short ball angling away, Allen backs away and swings. Goes a mile high, Shoriful runs to his right to try and take a return catch but bails out in the end. That's a fourth catch missed

Horiful sounds about right

At least Bangladesh knew what score they had to beat this time.
