    Bravo gone, to one of the luckier catches you will see. Decent wicket though, looked in decent nick there Bravo. I'm more a Pollard fan, I agree with KP, there are few batsmen that hit a ball as clean, hoping he gives us a bit of an exhibition tonight.

    Some decent Irish players in their side, enough possibly to make it quite interesting.

    The idea is that Rankin is so much more threatening than the others. With a bit of luck you could see him nabbing two or three early on and setting up the game for us.

    Completely agree though. The ball's never carrying to slip on this pitch.

    Heard some good things about this Dockrell kid.

    Interested to see how he goes.

    Looked ok in that first over young Dockrell. Not giving a lot of flight, but the odd one keeping low. A difficult assignment up against Sarwan who looks full of innovation in terms of angling the bat, working the gaps, little chips here and there, nothing too unorthodox, but clever all the same.

    Yeah, tough ask for a 17 year old spinner to bowl to Sarwan. He's been our chief tormenter as of late.

    Wicket for Dockrell, Fletcher through his shot too soon, got the elevation but not the distance, good work by the spinner.

    Sarwan now gone in similar fashion but he was trying to go through the offside. Very good bowling from Dockrell, teasing the batsmen into the strokes, and winning.

    TBF to the kid he's just picked up Fletcher & Sarwan.

    Darts 'em in; but that's no bad thing in the format.

    Dockrell's bowled really well. I know the pitch is slow but it's not just that which has made him effective - he's beaten the batsman in flight on numerous occasions. Gets Sarwan now too; game on.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Seems like WI are holding Pollard back, not sure I agree that. There's only 8 overs left, and now would give him the opportunity to have a quick look before unleashing some monstrous shots. Maybe they see him as a last 5 overs man, think he's better than that. No doubt he can do damage at the death, but fancy he could do more getting in earlier.

    It is no bad thing, but his two wickets have come when he's done them a bit in the air, taken a bit of pace off, been pretty impressive.

    Haha strangled. Laughed at that being called a "strike".
