Murtagh earns Ireland thrilling win

first_img Murtagh’s efforts carried Ireland home by just one wicket, with a solitary ball to spare, in the ICC World Cricket League clash at Stormont after the Scots had looked set to snatch a vital victory. Ireland’s last pair needed nine from the last three balls when Murtagh suddenly changed the game by hitting Rob Taylor for a maximum down the ground and following up with another boundary. Ireland captain William Porterfield, who scored a century against England, carried on where he left off in Malahide by rattling up 62 from 64 balls with 10 fours. But he fell soon after the dismissal of his opening partner Paul Stirling (30) and Ireland struggled to recover the momentum. Former captain Trent Johnston did weigh in with 24 from 34 balls but it was not until Sorensen got to work, putting on 29 for the ninth wicket with Murtagh, that hopes were truly revived. It seemed over when Sorensen swung and missed after coming down the pitch to Machan, but Murtagh held his nerve. Scotland had sensed victory when the dangerous Max Sorensen had been stumped off the bowling of Matt Machan in the penultimate over after a match-changing 31. Prior to that Ireland had slumped from 95 without loss to 180 for eight in pursuit of 224, Majid Haq taking three for 26. The defeat means Scotland, who play Ireland again in their final game on Saturday, can no longer climb into the eight-team competition’s second qualification spot. They will have one last chance in a qualification tournament next year. Ireland, the leaders of the WCL, have already booked their place at the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. Scotland posted 223 for nine from their 50 overs thanks largely to an unbeaten 91 from their South African-born captain Preston Mommsen. Although wickets fell at regular intervals, Mommsen shared in important partnerships of 60 for the fourth wicket with Calum MacLeod (21) and 44 for the ninth with Safyaan Sharif (26). Mommsen hit 10 fours in his 122-ball knock, holding the innings together after Machan’s promising start was ended on 27 by Sorensen. Somerset spinner George Dockrell, who struggled in the one-day clash with England earlier this week, was the pick of the Irish bowling with four for 24 from his 10 overs while Sorensen took two for 37. Press Association Tim Murtagh smashed a six and a four in the final over as Ireland ended Scotland’s hopes of automatic World Cup qualification with a dramatic win in Belfast.last_img read more

Dikko Hails Enyimba’s Never-Say-Die Attitude

first_imgThe League Management Company (LMC) has lauded Enyimba’s qualification for the CAF Champions’ League group stage after beating Etoile du Sahel to the ticket on Wednesday at the Olympic Stadium in Sousse.Chairman of the LMC, Shehu Dikko in a social media post congratulated Enyimba for their show of bravery throughout the encounter while urging Nigerians to take a cue from the People’s Elephant who showed the Nigerian spirits even when many had written them off after the 90 minutes.“Enyimba have shown the Nigerian spirit today after they qualified at the expense of Etoile du Sahel. Even though they were three goals down but they never collapsed or gave up,” writes Dikko. “They could have scored the away goal at the 86th minute to win the match but they couldn’t convert the chance that came their way. Even though they were two goals down from the first two penalties in the penalty shootout still they never gave up and they clawed their way back.“They were presented with the opportunity to close up the tie with a penalty conversion in their sixth penalty to win and they lost it but they never surrendered and they got the result by the seventh penalty to win the match.“There is no better way to demonstrate the Nigerian spirit and this is how we use to know Nigerian teams. Enyimba have been able to revive our zeal and commitment to our fatherland. I want to congratulate Enyimba and to all lovers of Nigerian football. May this be the beginning of the turnaround to our international football performances.Enyimba have thus become the first Nigerian club after Sunshine Stars in 2012 to qualify for the CAF Champions’ League group stage and they are joined in the last eight by Entete Setif (Algeria), AS Vita Club (D R Congo), Al Ahly (Egypt), Zamalek (Egypt), ASEC Mimosas (Cote d’ Ivoire), Zesco United (Zambia) and Wydad Club (Morocco).Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
