And Ireland win the ICC World Cup Qualifiers by 9 wickets. A deserved win for Ireland who have looked like winners the whole tournament

Well done to Canada as well, they had a slight hiccup in the middle of their innings where Johnston produced the best bowling ever for Ireland and at one stage had 5/5 which would have been the second best economy in all ODI cricket

All that remains is the man of the match, which just has to be Trent Johnston, and the man of the series who could be one of many Players receiving their medals now, while all here are waiting for the MoS

Man of the Match is Trent Johnston, Both captains come forward to collect their official invitation to the next World Cup, The Man of the Series is from the Netherlands, the medium pacer Edgar Schiferli

Thanks for staying with us and enjoy some happy cricket moments with Cricinfo
