Ireland completes five wicket win
Ireland completed its first win in the ICC Intercontinental Cup with an easy five wicket win over Namibia at the Civil Service Cricket Club on Friday.
Set to chase 173 for a win, Ireland began the final day of the four-day contest at its overnight score of 135 for four.
Kevin O'Brien fell early in the chase on the final day, but Andrew White (22 not out) and John Mooney (15 not out) controlled the chase very well.
In the end Ireland overhauled the target in 40.2 overs with the score at 176 for five.
For Namibia, Christi Viljoen (2-40) and Louis van der Westhuizen (2-21) were the chief wicket-takers, but that was not enough as the hosts won quite easily.
