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.
