Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni shared 67-run stand, India v Ireland, Group B, World Cup 2011, Bangalore, March 6, 2011
All-round performance of Yuvraj Singh sealed the victory over Ireland by 5 wickets, he achieved his maiden five wickets haul to restrict Ireland to 207 before he scored unbeaten fifty to make live crowd in Bangalore. On a dry pitch, where the ball came on slowly, Indian skipper preferred to field after winning the toss. India were 24 for 2 in their sixth over, reached 100 for four at the fall of Virat Kohli who was run out after mix-up with his partner. MS Dhoni exited in the 41st over when Indians were 167 for 5. Yousaf Pathan added some elevated shots in his innings. Yuvraj Singh was the first player who took 5 wickets and 50 in a game of World Cup history. He is also former left arm spinner who got 5 scalps in World Cup tournament.
Ireland could have done far better had they not stumbled against Yuvraj's bowling. They were gazing at a 250-plus target after a 113-run third-wicket stand between William Porterfield and Niall O'Brien but a run out opened a window for Yuvraj to trigger a collapse. The most momentous moment of the innings came in the 27th over, with Ireland sitting pretty on 122 for 2, when a set Niall O'Brien couldn't make it in time to beat the throw from Virat Kohli in the covers. Dhoni did well to collect the slightly unruly throw and flick it onto the stumps. It was the beginning of the end.
