Ireland reduced to 25/5 at the end of four overs

Andrew Balbirnie and Paul Stirling both plundered a six before the Australian bowlers got into the act. The Irish captain was the first to perish, as Pat Cummins knocked back his off-stump with one that swung in. Stirling then slapped the second ball from Glenn Maxwell straight to mid-off, where Cummins took a fine low catch. Harry Tector hit back with a four down the ground but Maxwell had the last laugh. Mitchell Starc then followed it up with a double-wicket maiden as Ireland found themselves in deep trouble at 25/5 at the end of 4 overs chasing a steep 180.
