Irish on verge


IRELAND are just one wicket away from clinching a convincing win against the UAE after the third day of their ICC InterContinental Cup clash at Malahide.

Despite claiming an extra half-hour in an attempt to wrap up the game inside three days, the Irish fell agonisingly short as the UAE finished proceedings on 251 for 9 in their second innings - still needing another 28 runs to make Ireland bat again.
