Fri, Jun 5, 2015 10:58 AM
Ireland required just four balls this morning to complete an innings victory against the UAE on the final day of their ICC InterContinentaL Cup clash at Malahide.
After a delayed start of 30 minutes, Craig Young dismissed number 11 Muhammed Naveed - well caught by George Dockrell - with just two runs added to their overnight score.
That took the Bready opening bowler's match haul to 7 for 110 - Dockrell also took seven wickets, at a cost of 141,
Ireland collect the 20 maximum points available to join Namibia at the top of the table. Ireland face Namibia in the next round of the competition later in the year.
Before then, the Irish have a T20 International Series against traditional rivals Scotland at Bready, on June 18, 19, and 21. Tickets and further details on the games are available at www.cricketireland.ie and TicketMaster outlets nationwide.
