So we have reached the end of this exciting game, Ireland win by 5 wickets. At the end of the day Namibia didnt set Ireland a big enough total. Both teams had young sides out but the experience on the Irish side showed through. There was stages in the match the Namibia had Ireland in trouble but Andrew White's classy century made the difference between the teams. George Dockrell took 8 wickets in the match to add to his first class fifty. Viljoen was the pick of the Namibian plays as he took seven wickets, he also hit a very good 87.

So Ireland receive the full 20 points for the match. 6 for having a first innings lead and 14 for the overall win. Namibia even though they played really well in the match leave with nothing. Ireland will be playing their next match against Canada in Dublin next week, so please dont forget to join us for that match. That just leaves me to thank you for following my commentary over the past four days. This is Justin Smyth saying goodbye from Belfast.
