Ireland defeated Scotland by five wickets in The Hague on Thursday to secure victory in the T20 Tri-Nations series, which also included hosts the Netherlands.

Andrew Balbirnie and Lorcan Tucker were the star performers with the bat for the Irish as their half-centuries helped them reach 158-5 off 19.3 overs in reply to Scotland’s 157-8.

Matthew Cross scored 35 and Michael Leask contributed 34 for the Scots, with Mark Adair and Craig Young taking three wickets apiece.

Ireland beat the Netherlands on Sunday, before their first scheduled encounter with the Scots on Monday was abandoned because of steady rain in Voorburg.

They will face the Dutch again on Friday as they continue their preparation for the men’s T20 World Cup next month.

Scotland lost to the Netherlands in their opener on Saturday but beat the same opposition by 71 runs on Wednesday.
