END OF OVER:

It was nearly a memorable win for Ireland - had they kept their cool in the middle order they would have got there with plenty of overs to spare. Man of the Match goes to James Hopes for his 5/14 off 9 overs - well deserved. Stay tuned for plenty of live coverage on Cricinfo over the coming days with the 2nd Test between West Indies and South Africa, plus the Asia Cup matches and the England Australia series which starts next week. Nighty, night from Clontarf CC in beautiful Dublin

Watson to Mooney, OUT, aims a slog over mid wicket, gets a top edge and the Aussie skipper runs in and takes the catch near the pitch. It's all over - major relief for Australia to get out of this as they win by 39 runs

Field comes in for the last ball......
