For the first time India's new ball bowlers were taken apart by the opposition & Ireland looked like they would score 300 +. And what does Dhoni do? - unleash the spin brigade. The Irish failed to read Ashwin & Raina (did he look like Shane Warne to the Irish?) & could post only 259 in 49 overs. Porterfield 67 (93) & Niall O'Brien top scored for Ireland while Shami came back after a costly first spell to pick 3 wickets at the death. Rohit was tentative at the chase but showed glimpses of what he was capable of on his way to a scratchy 64 (66). Deano even got carried off with what he saw of Rohit Sharma & likened him to Mark Waugh at one stage!!! What've you been drinking Deano? Dhawan 100 (85) clobbered the Irish attack & Kohli 44 (42) & Rahane 33 (28) brought the ship safe home.
