Ireland win Intercontinental Cup final


Cricket’s new emerging force Ireland swamped Canada inside two days of the four-day ICC Intercontinental Cup final, here at Grace Road on Wednesday, winning by the emphatic margin of an innings and 115 runs to be declared as the tournament’s new champions.

Having been put in first on Tuesday’s opening day, Canada were bowled out for a pathetic 92 runs in their first innings.

Ireland with 352 gained a lead of 260 but Canada managed a poor 145 all out when they batted a second time.

In Ireland’s only innings, Canada’s left-arm medium bowler Umar Bhatti took a hat-trick of LBWs with the wickets of Andrew White, Gary Wilson and Thinus Fourie.

Scores: Canada 92 (A M Samad 29, U Bhatti 22*; D T Johnston 4-12, M J Fourie 3-31, K J O’Brien 2-4) and 145 (A A Mulla 48; D T Johnsyton 3-47, W K McCallan 5-34).

Ireland 352 (J P Bray 146, W T S Porterfield 54, E J G Morgan 84, K J O’Broen 35; U Bhatti 5-85).
