its the end. Richardson comes down the wicket and hits the ball high in the air. Its an easy catch by the cover sweeper.
Its been a very good performance from Sri Lanka A today to win by 107 runs. So they take a 2-0 lead and win the series.
Ireland innings never really got going when they lost Stuart Poynter first ball for a duck.
Stuart Thompson top scored for Ireland with 51 but they just lost too many top order wickets too quickly. They were never going to be able to challenge Sri Lanka's score.
Prasanna was the pick of the bowlers with his five wickets.
The next game of the series is on Sunday and it also starts at 10.45am. This game is going to be played at Coleraine. So please join me then, this is Justin Smyth saying goodbye from a sunny Stormont.
