Stats highlights: England vs Ireland, World Twenty20

May 05, 2010 12:00 IST

Statistical Highlights from the tenth match of the ICC World Twenty20 between England and Ireland in Providence, Guyana, on Tuesday.

# England's total of 120-8 is their second lowest in Twenty20 internationals, after 111 all out against South Africa at Nottingham on June 11, 2009.

# Paul Collingwood - by getting dismissed for duck - achieved the dubious distinction of becoming the only captain to score ducks on two occasions in the World Cup. He also suffered a similar fate against South Africa at Cape Town on September 16, 2007.

# Michael Yardy became the fifth batsman in T20 history to be dismissed through a run-out without facing a ball. He is the third batsman to be dismissed in this fashion in the World Cup after New Zealand's Daniel Vettori (vs Pakistan at Cape Town on September 22, 2007) and Pakistan's Mohammad Aamer (vs Sri Lanka at Lord's on June 12, 2009).

Also, West Indian Kieron Pollard was stumped off a wide against England at Providence on May 3, 2010.

# This was the fourth match in Twenty20 internationals - second in the World Cup - that produced no-result.
