Scoreline: Ireland 207 all out – Porterfield 75, Niall O’Brien 46 | Yuvraj Singh 10-31-5
India win in 46 (after some shaky moments) – Yuvraj Singh 50 no, Tendulkar 38, Kohli 34, Dhoni 34, Yusuf 30 no | Dockrell 10-49-2, Johnston 5-1-16-2
The Irish continue to push for more international opportunities and Porterfield finally demonstrates what he can do with a bat on the world stage. Having watched him only in such tournaments, have always wondered about this.
For India, it does seem that the Yuvraj’s rehabilitation process initiated during his batting stint with Tendulkar in the Ind-Eng game is midway through. Look out for him acknowledging Sachin after getting his 50 – Ind Bat 3 – around 7:18 where he grabs his crotch in imitation of Sachin’s early career famed mannerism.
Watch Ireland vs India highlights – the Group B game from the 2011 World Cup played on March 6.
