Pressure map: England vs Ireland

Srinivas Bhogle | March 31, 2007 16:52 IST

Ireland looked unlikely to go past 180 against England while chasing 267. So the Irish innings started with a pressure index (PI) of 170.

At 11/2, the PI rose to 174.

Porterfield and N J O'Brien tried their best, but it wasn't easy especially against a determined Flintoff who had a couple of things to prove.

Ireland didn't want to lose too badly, and England didn't want to win big (have they forgotten the NRR tie-breaker?), so the match simply meandered along. Only Panesar's occasional burst of exuberance reminded you that this was supposed to be a contest.

This World Cup has been really disappointing... imagine we could have been watching England playing Pakistan instead!
