Full commentary

So a comfortable win for Ireland with the skipper O'Brien bringing them home.

The win was set up though by a brilliant bowling performance from Craig Young who took 5 wickets.

So Ireland take a 1-0 lead in the three match series with the next game here on Wednesday.

Do have a read of Ryan Bailey's report which will be up soon but from Conor Hayes in Malahide it's goodbye.
