Moments of The Day: Ireland Medium Pacers, Top Order Give Them First Victory in T20 World Cup Over Netherlands
- Curtis Campher’s historic 4 in 4 rules the day for Ireland. Netherlands were nudging along nicely at 51/2 with Max O’Dowd stabilizing the innings. Then came the young all-rounder. Caught behind, LBW, LBW, bowled. Ackerman, Ryan Ten Doeschate, Scott Edwards, Roelof van der Merwe. Netherlands 51/6. Campher joins Rashid Khan & Lasith Malinga. Second T20 World Cup hat-trick after Brett Lee in the inaugural 2007 T20 WC.
- Mark Adair restricts Netherlands – History repeats itself, or does it? The day before Ireland were at a similar position before coming back to score 140. At 88-6 with Max O’Dowd still there, anything could have happened. Not to be though after Adair took his wicket and ended with miserly figures of 4-0-9-3.
- Paul Stirling, Gareth Delany finish it off. Stirling’s uncharacteristic 30* (39) ensured no collapses for Ireland. However it was Delany’s 44* (29) with 5 fours and 2 sixes that made sure Ireland win with a comfortable net run rate.
Broken Cricket Dream of the Day: RTD and RVDM
- Ryan Ten Doeschate and Roelof Van der Merwe, Dutch legends, came back to the international squad for this World Cup after employing their trades in T20 cricket and County cricket for a few years. However, the rustiness was apparent as they were victims of the 4 in 4.
Tweet of the Day
Is it 4 in 4 or a double hat-trick? Have your say? Lots of debate yesterday.
Why is 4 wickets in 4 balls being called a double hat trick? Last I looked a hat trick is 3 in 3. So double that is 6 in 6. You don’t get a double hundred if you score 101— Alex Duffell (@alex_duffell) October 18, 2021
