Scotland win all-time ODI thriller to leave Ireland’s World Cup hopes in tatters

Scotland overcame Ireland in an ODI thriller to rank among the most exciting ever played to leave the latter’s hopes of qualifying for the World Cup hanging by a thread.

Already beaten by Oman, Ireland were left with little room for error in the remainder of their first round clashes. Three teams from each group progress to the Super Sixes stage, and with Sri Lanka expected to dominate Ireland’s group, more than a single slip-up against the other three teams could be fatal.

Ireland looked dead and buried early on, collapsing to 33-4 as opening bowler Brandon McMullen cut a swathe through the top order. All-rounder Curtis Campher led a rebuild, with George Dockrell (69) giving strong support. Campher reached his century in the 48th over and cut loose in the 50th, smashing Chris Sole for 14 runs in three balls as Ireland surged close to 300.
