hit down the ground along the ground and that's it, O'Brien will finish unbeaten on 98 and Ireland are the World Cricket League champions
And that's it, Ireland are champions, a 162 run partnership between O'Brien and White made it safe after a slight wobble at 53/3. White was only removed from a stunning grab from Berrington and the damage was done, the only dissapointment being O'Brien stranded on 98*. He will be happy however, that he lead his Irish team home to victory and the title of 2010 ICC World Cricket League Divison One.
We will shortly have a Man of the Match award (no prizes for guessing) but the player of the series has been awarded to Tom Cooper of the Netherlands who's been scoring runs by the bucket load.
Scotland started well with an opening stand of 141 before a drastic middle order collapse saw them post a total of 232, Watts almost carried his bat through on 98, Mommsen supported him well with 80 and skipper Drummond on 30 were the only players to get in double figures and everyone else will be disappointed with their batting performance. Ireland started strong, Stirling in full flow as usual before Balbirnie sacrificed himself in a run-out mix up. O'Brien and White sealed victory from the Irish and once they were both past 50 and settled at the crease, the Scots were always behind.
The man of the match is Kevin O'Brien.
Thanks very much for joining us today where Ireland eventually ran out comfortable victors by 6 wickets. From Callum Stewart in Amstelveen, thanks for joining us for all the matches over the past two weeks and Scotland will next be in ODI action against Bangladesh on the 19th July. For now though, good evening and goodbye.
