Ireland crush sorry Netherlands
Ireland demolished the Netherlands by an innings and 84 runs well inside three days at Dublin in the ICC Intercontinental Cup.
Andrew White and John Mooney’s second-day centuries proved decisive as the visitors to Observatory Lane were outclassed.
Dismissed for 188 in their first innings due principally to left-arm spinner George Dockrell’s four economical wickets, the Netherlands could only muster 136 second time round as seamer Allan Eastwood picked up four victims.
White and Mooney put on 221 for Ireland’s sixth wicket yesterday en route to 144 and 107 respectively in a total of 408 all out.
