Ireland beats Scotland by six wickets

11:50 am on 11 July 2010

The Irish cricketers have beaten Scotland by six wickets in the World League Division One final in Amstelveen in the Netherlands.

After being put in to bat, Scotland were all out for 232 in the penultimate over, with Fraser Watts scoring 98 and Preston Mommsen 80.

Ireland never looked in any serious trouble as Kevin O'Brien hit an unbeaten 98 combined with Andrew White 79 to knock off the bulk of the runs in a fourth-wicket partnership of 160.

It was just reward for Ireland, who went unbeaten through the competition having also beaten Scotland earlier in the campaign.
