Match Ended   
179/5 (20.0/20)
137 (18.1/20)
Australia beat Ireland by 42 runs
That concludes this game. Aussies go second on the table for now. On 1st November, two games are lined up but first, it will be Afghanistan taking on Sri Lanka at 9.30 am IST (4 am GMT). Do join us for the coverage. Cheers!
Andy Balbirnie, the skipper of Ireland says it was a tough game, Finch's innings took it away, they bowled well for the most parts but a few overs did not go their way. Credits Tucker for the way he played and he hopes he can continue to do well.
Aaron Finch, the skipper of Australia is also the Player of the Match. He says it was not the easiest of wicket as it played slow and 180 was a good score on the wicket. Adds he is feeling no pressure, there has been a lot of support for him, he has trained really well and that is all you can control. Mentions there will be good days and there will be bad days. States wide balls were not easy to face but when they were bowling straight, it was easier. Informs he will get a scan and he hopes the injury is not bad enough. Ends by saying they are very hopeful of going through. Finch says it was a good performance, he felt 180 was a good score. Adds they needed to lay the foundation early but they found it difficult to get going straight on. Informs David had a niggle but nothing to worry. States England and New Zealand is a big game, it would have been great to dismiss Ireland for a lot lower but Tucker played a brilliant knock.
...Presentation coming up...
Earlier in the day, Australia, after being inserted, struggled for the first 10 overs with the bat. However, they managed to score around 100 in the last 10 courtesy of Finch and Stoinis and that took their total to which we felt was above par. Ireland, despite the efforts of Lorcan Tucker, have fallen well short of the Aussie total.
Australia will be slightly disappointed they only managed to win by 42 runs. They just leaked a lot of runs once the Powerplay ended, especially Starc, Cummins and Hazlewood. They were poor once the ball got old. They were either too full or too short. However, pretty sure Australia's number one priority heading into this game was the two points and they have got that.
Had it not been for Lorcan Tucker, this could have well been embarrassing for Ireland. The Aussie players ran through the top order in no time and they were 5 down in the Powerplay itself. Maxwell and Starc did the damage earlier on. After that though, it was the Tucker show. He really took on the Aussie bowlers. There were wickets falling at the other end but he batted brilliantly. Found the boundaries at ease. Was dropped and he made full use of the life he got. Ireland have to thank for coming so close or at one stage, it seemed the margin of defeat could be well over 100.
How costly is that drop from Cummins going to be? Yes, despite that it is still a good win for them but they would have wanted the margin to be a lot higher. Maybe had Cummins taken the catch, Australia might have bettered England's NRR at the end of this game but that is not the case now. Still though, the Aussies have kept their campaign alive with two wins in a row.

Glenn Maxwell To Paul Stirling OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! That move has turned out to be a master-stroke from Aaron Finch! We here were wondering an offie against two right-handers but Maxwell has provided the wicket and it is the big one. Both the openers fall now. This is short and on middle, Paul Stirling makes room. This was there to be hit but Paul slaps it straight towards mid off where it is taken by Cummins. You can't keep Pat Cummins out of the game.

Pat Cummins To Andy Balbirnie OUT!
OUT! TIMBER! Cummins strikes! He is delighted and he finishes the over just the way Australia would gave wanted. They need wickets and they have got one early here. This is a lovely inswinger. Starts from well outside off and it is fuller. Ends up on the off pole. Andy Balbirnie shuffles across and looks to flick it fine on the leg side but misses and the off pole is hit. The flying start is cut short then.

Josh Hazlewood To Andy Balbirnie
What was that sound? We thought there was an edge there but no appeal. Maybe it hit the stumps. IT DID! That has samshed into the off pole. Not sure how the bails did not fall there. This starts on middle and then shapes away. Andy Balbirnie makes room and looks to go over covers but misses. It hits the off pole and goes to the keeper.
