...and another! Bangladesh on just 153/6 now after 36 overs!

Kevin O'Brien and Dockrell look like they're just getting into their stride too. The latter's stats are simply world class - 8 overs, 2 wickets, an economy rate of just 2.50. This has all the hallmarks of another great Irish victory.

Yeah, seeing him bowl like this on the highest stage makes me feel better about the time he got me out.

7 down! Will Bangladesh feel too much pressure from their home crowd and home expectations whilst in the field? This is Ireland's for the taking!

Dockrell throws in a maiden for good measure to end his 10-over spell, finishing with 2 wickets at an economy rate of 2.30. :clap:

I think Mooney and Botha should both be put back into the attack for a couple of overs each. We need to keep the Bangladeshi total down and, although Rankin poses a wicket-taking threat, he's leaked a lot of runs today.

Can't see them even reaching 200 now. Our lads just need to keep calm in the chase, this match is there for the taking.

Anything over 150 is a defendable total especialy when your bowlers are on home turf, the further away from 200 we keep them the better.

Someon needs to anchor our innings, it's very winnable but concentation and composure will be the key...

Agreed. If any batsman makes a tonne it's Ireland's game.

Three poor overs in succession from Ireland there, giving away 17 runs. Botha will presumably bowl one more over, as should Mooney. Rankin and Johnston are just leaking too many runs at the moment.

Can't understand with Rankin's radar away with the fairies today why Kev o'Brien wasn't being chucked the ball, or young Stirling given another one or two overs? Their economy for the previous overs has been double Big Boyd's...

206 to win. It seems like a slow pitch but it's certainly gettable.
