India Won Over Ireland by 5 Wickets

Yuvraj Singh saved the blushes for India, allowing them to hide the ordinary effort from other spinners, by picking his maiden five-for to restrict Ireland to 207 before he hit an unbeaten fifty to settle India's nerves in a hard-fought win in Bangalore. Ireland enhanced their reputation by defending the target with disciplined bowling and excellent fielding and made India huff and puff to the victory line.

Ian Hale: "No matter the result, another solid performance from Ireland, especially when you consider they haven't been able to bowl out Johnston today. It'll be a crime if the ICC don't support their development further from here. "

India are now top of the table with five points, level with England on points but ahead on net run rate.

Virat Kohli: "It was a slow wicket, and they were bowling it on the stumps so me and Sachin tried to build a partnership." He says he told Sachin that the ball was going on to hit when Sachin asked whether they should go for the review.
