Joyce, bowlers deliver big win for Ireland

A battling unbeaten 67 by Ed Joyce ensured Ireland posted a competitive total in the World Cricket League ODI, and a combined bowling effort in helpful conditions guaranteed Afghanistan came nowhere near it

Match Centre

A fantastic bowling and fielding performance by Ireland who managed to comfortably defend 163. Cusack and Johnston bowled superbly first up and the spinners finished the job. So a crucial win for Ireland who look good for a World Cup place. Join us again on Monday when the two sides will play each other in a four-day game. So join me, Conor Hayes for that and from an overcast and dull Clontarf it's goodbye.
