Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Ireland wrapped up victory without too much alarm on the final day against of their Intercontinental Cup game against Namibia at Stormont.

Entering the day with just 38 to get and six wickets in hand it would have taken something remarkable for the visitors to cause an upset. First-innings centurion Andrew White cracked a boundary in the first over and another in the second which meant that by the time Kevin O'Brien nicked to second slip there was no concern at all for Ireland.

The match, which had been tightly fought over the first two days, ended slightly underwhelming with Pikky Ya France slipping four byes down the leg side.

Ireland are next in action on September 13 when they host Canada at Rathmines. There is one change to the Ireland squad with batsman James Shannon replacing Stuart Thompson, who is unavailable due to university commitments.
