Joyce thrilled to book World Cup spot

Ed Joyce says Ireland are overjoyed to have booked World Cup qualification after Tuesday's dramatic tie against the Netherlands.

After Sunday's comfortable win over the Dutch, Tuesday's tie secured Ireland qualification for a third successive World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in 2015.

"If we had been offered three points before we came here we would definitely have taken them," added Joyce.

"Australia is a great place to play cricket. I'm really looking forward to getting out there for quite a long period in 2015."
