I voted for 'All out attack'; but it should be calculated counter attack. You can see Irish calculations in taking the powerplay at the right time, blind hitting does not work.
That is very rare. Kevin's innings doesn't happen right and left in the face of collapse. That is why he is the fastest centurion in the WC. Even Sanath, Hayden, Gilchrist, VIv, YK, Fridi didn't do that.

In any case, we are down 4/5 with 10 or 12 overs with Mushi, Riayd to come. Surviving till 25 overs would be blessing let alone counter attacking. This not rare because it happened multiple times. May happen again when Australia come knocking at the door.
