Young's debut five-for sets up victory

Craig Young, the fast bowler released by Sussex twelve months ago, chose a good moment to become just the ninth player to take a five-wicket haul on ODI debut as he stole a march in the race to make the plane for Australia and New Zealand

So a comfortable win for Ireland with the skipper O'Brien bringing them home.

The win was set up though by a brilliant bowling performance from Craig Young who took 5 wickets.
