26th Match, Dublin, Jul 5 2012, ICC World Cricket League Championship
(33.1/50 ov, target 164)104
Ireland won by 59 runs

A fantastic bowling and fielding performance by Ireland who managed to comfortably defend 163. Cusack and Johnston bowled superbly first up and the spinners finished the job.

So a crucial win for Ireland who look good for a World Cup place. Join us again on Monday when the two sides will play each other in a four-day game.

So join me, Conor Hayes for that and from an overcast and dull Clontarf it's goodbye.
