Ireland reaffirmed their status as cricket's premier non-Test nation via an innings-and-44-run Intercontinental Cup victory over Scotland at Dublin.
The hosts profited on winning the toss by producing an excellent all-round bowling performance as Scotland were dismissed for just 138 in their first innings.
Craig Young led the way with 4-53, while Graeme McCarter claimed three wickets, Kevin O’Brien two and Max Sorensen one.
Ireland’s batsmen followed that up impressively, Paul Stirling and John Anderson’s half-centuries being helped by a series of contributions elsewhere.
The home total of 350 earned a 212-run lead, which was more than enough to ensure a second innings was not necessary.
Sorensen followed up his sole first-innings scalp with 5-37 second time around as Scotland were skittled for just 168 despite number nine Safyaan Sharif’s 60.
