IRE vs ZIM, 2nd T20I, Ireland v Zimbabwe Twenty20 Series 2019, 12 July 2019
Ireland won by 9 wickets (DLS Method)
BALL BY BALL
That is a convincing chase from Ireland. They get to the total with 13 balls remaining. Paul Stirling was brutal, and sent the bowlers to all parts. Kevin O'Brien and Andrew Balbirnie chipped in with handy scores too. But 83 off 36 balls was the standout performance of the day. What a knock. Zimbabwe did well with the bat, but lost too many wickets in the final few overs, and it meant they couldn't get to a big enough score. The hosts go 1-0 up in the series with just one game to play.
10.5 - K Jarvis to P Stirling
Full toss, off stump moves in front pushing, to mid on for 1 run, shy attempt by Butt.
10.4 - K Jarvis to P Stirling
Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Mpofu.
Stirling gets in position, and wallops this onto the grass banks. Picked up the length, and hit it as clean as a whistle. Ireland almost there.
10.3 - K Jarvis to P Stirling
Slower ball short, outside off stump moves in front pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.
That sums up Zimbabwe's time in the field. Looped straight down to Mpofu, and it is a very simple chance. Put down. Terrible effort.
10.2 - K Jarvis to A Balbirnie
Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to fine leg for 1 run, dropped catch by Mpofu.
10.1 - K Jarvis to A Balbirnie
Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, to deep backward square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Mpofu.

9.6 - C Mpofu to P Stirling
Length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Masakadza.
Not where he intended at all. Looked to hammer it over the legside, but edged down to third man for a one bounce four.
9.5 - C Mpofu to P Stirling
Length ball, off stump moves in front flick, top edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs.
