Kieron Pollard said : “Ireland came out and came hard and they took the initiative in the first 10 overs or so but I thought the bowlers really came back well when we decided to bowl one side of the wicket and tried to execute our skills,” “I thought Hayden Walsh in all the carnage that was taking place – he bowled four overs on the trot – was consistent with his line and length as well.
