Ireland 524 for 8 dec beat Bermuda 192 (Outerbridge 53) and 186 (Outerbridge 50, Langford-Smith 5-45) by an innings and 146 runs
David Langford-Smith took five wickets as Ireland wrapped up a three-day win against Bermuda at Clontarf by an innings and 146 runs. Ireland enforced the follow-on early on the third day and Bermuda couldn't put up much of a fight.
Their first innings ended swiftly as Trent Johnston took two quick wickets and Langford-Smith struck early in the second to remove Jekon Edness. Steve Outerbridge and Lionel Cann added 57, but when legspinner Greg Thompson trapped Cann lbw the middle order went in familiar style.
Langford-Smith removed captain Irving Romaine and ended Outerbridge's battling 50 - his second half-century of the match - to ensure Ireland would be getting a Sunday off. Andrew White wrapped up the innings with his offspin, ending a 49-run stand for the eighth wicket by Dwayne Leverock and Ryan Steede. The last three wickets fell on the same score, White bagging 3 for 7.
Ireland's 20-point win leaves them second in the table, five points behind Netherlands with a game in hand. Ireland are not in first-class action again until 2008, while the Intercontinental Cup resumes in October.
