O'Brien delight in Irish World League double
- From the section Cricket
Niall O'Brien hits an unbeaten 65 from 70 balls as Ireland completed an ICC World Cricket League double over Scotland at Stormont on Sunday.
O'Brien was surprised that Scotland elected to bat first in the overcast conditions, while Ireland coach Phil Simmons said his team had played "proper cricket" after a poor performance in their one-wicket win over the same opponents on Friday.
Irish skipper William Porterfield praised his bowlers for having Scotland all out for just 165 as the home side coasted to a seven-wicket victory.
