Young shines on Ireland debut

Craig Young made an impressive debut for Ireland, taking 4 for 53 against Scotland, as they took control of their Intercontinental Cup meeting at Clontarf

Match Centre

So Ireland win this game by an innings and 44 runs. This result ensures Ireland will play Afghanistan in the final of the competition and should it end in a draw Ireland will take the trophy as they have topped the table. That final will take place in December in Dubai a short time after the World T20 qualifiers take place, also in the U.A.E.

So Ireland complete a facile win to end a very successful summer. All that's left for me is to thank you for following my commentary over the four days and from Conor Hayes in a sunny Clontarf it's goodbye.
