World Cup 2015: India put dent in Irish luck

Mar 10, 2015 | Cricket | 0 comments

Ireland are feeling a little less lucky now, as India continued their winning ways with an 8-wicket triumph in Hamilton, New Zealand. The Irish started off well enough with an opening partnership of 89 between captain William Porterfield 67 and Paul Stirling 42, leading to a score of 259 all out. That total includes 75 from Niall O’Brien. As for India’s bowling, Mohammed Shami took 3/41 from 9; Ravi Ashwin took 2/38 from 10. But man of the match Shikhar Dhawan made a solid 100 and Rohit Sharma 64 in the defending champions’ response of 260/2 from 36.5 overs. Bowling for Ireland, Stuart Thompson picked up 2/45 from 6 overs. Ireland still have a chance to reach the quarterfinals: that is, if they beat Pakistan on Sunday.
