CWC 2015 LIVE - Ashwin's Miserly Spell Checks Ireland to 259

#Ireland vs #India, #Hamilton

#RaviAshwin's miserly spell  in the middle overs ensured India pulled things back to restrict Ireland to 259 all out in their Pool B game at #SeddonPark, Hamilton.

At 89 for 0 in 15 overs, the Irish were off to a brilliant start and looking for a mighty score to scare India. #MSDhoni, the India skipper, turned to Ashwin to stem runs and pick wickets. He did both.

He picked up #PaulStirling, getting him to loft a beautifully tossed delivery to long on safely into #AjinkyaRahane's hands.

#SureshRaina and #RavindraJadeja were then introduced from the other end.
They put on the brakes too. Raina castled #EdJoyce for 2 and the brakes were really on.

Then #WilliamPorterfield and #NiallObrien steadied the innings.
#PaulBalbirnie joined OBrien and started pushing the score again.

At 206 for 3, they were poised for a final onslaught.
Dhoni once again brought Ashwin into the attack and he delivered once again
He induced a top edge off Balbirnie to fineleg.

From then on, it was downhill for Ireland as they collapsed to 259 all out.
Superb spell of spin bowling.
10 - 1 - 38 - 2
