Ireland defeated Scotland in their second game of Group B after a brilliant fifth-century wicket stand between Curtis Campher and George Dockrell.
Scotland, who batted first, went 176/5 in 20 overs as Michael Jones led the innings with a crucial 86-run innings. The sum seemed justifiable at halftime.
Scotland’s prospects brightened as Ireland were reduced to 61/4 in the 10th over of the chase. That’s when Campher and Dockrell joined hands in the middle, trying to steady the chase.
Campher hit a fascinating 72 runs from 32 deliveries to lead his team home, while Dockrell played an able second fiddle and hit 39 from 27 deliveries. The two produced a partnership of 119 runs – the highest for Ireland in T20 World Championships.
Group B lives and opened up further with Ireland’s win over Scotland. Victory would also give the West Indies some breathing room as they face Zimbabwe in an important competition.
The tweetati praised the batters for their efforts in securing an Ireland win over Scotland.
I think it’s great that Curtis Campher wins every world championship alone once.

West Indies can lose and qualify today because if Zimbabwe beat Scotland and West Indies beat Ireland three teams will be tied for two points and the second qualifier will be determined by NRR. So if WI is losing today, margin minimization could keep them alive. #T20WorldCup

WHAT A DAY FOR IRELAND in Hobart. Her highest ever successful chase (180), highest single score ever (Curtis Campher 72 not out) and highest partnership ever (119 b/w Campher and Dockrell) in T20 World Cup history. #T20WorldCup
