An exceptional bowling performance helped Ireland pull off a heist as they defended 128 to beat Nepal by 16 runs in the final match of the Oman T20 Quadrangular Series at the Al Almerat Stadium in Muscat. All five Irish bowlers used returned a wicket, but the stand-out performances came from Barry McCarthy and Andy McBrine. Mark Adair (2-24), Simi Singh (2-32) and Curtis Campher (1-23) chipped in as well, and there was a noticeable improvement in groundwork after yesterday's sub-par display.
