Ireland win by 5 wickets in what was a comfortable victory in the end. There was a little panic at the start when the Irish fell to 55/3 and the Canadians felt they had a chance. Desai was the only bowler to impress with 3-35 off his ten overs but after Stirling steadied the ship, O'Brien and Mooney saw the Irish over the line with 43* and 44* respectively.

Elsewhere, Kenya have one wicket to get 50 runs against Scotland and Afghanistan are chasing 202 versus the Netherlands. This results guarantees the Irish a place in the final with four wins out of four and Canada are yet to win a game and will contest the 5th/6th place play-off.

Do join us again on Friday for ball-by-ball action from the final round of matches but for now it's goodbye from Callum Stewart here in Amstelveen.
