Match tied | Netherlands Vs Ireland Live Score, ICC World Cricket League Championship

So that means Ireland have qualified for the 2015 World Cup.
This is the first time that a game is tied in the ICC World Cricket League Championship. Netherlands should have won it easily after being well set at one stage. They played a little slowly as the innings neared its death. But credit to the Ireland bowlers for making life difficult for the batsmen. It was down to 13 runs required off the last over. John Mooney was given to duties and he started off in grand fashion conceding just 2 runs in the first four balls. But Rippon held his nerve and managed to stun the Irish by his lusty hits in the last two balls.
End of over 50, 12 runs (. W . 2 4 6 )

SIX, would you believe it, Netherlands have managed to tie the game here with a stunning hit.

out Schiferli Run Out!!

Edgar Schiferli, right handed bat, comes to the crease
48.5 Alex Cusack to Mudassar Bukhari W
out Caught by Dockrell!! Full delivery outside off stump, it was there to be hit, Bukhari looks to loft it over the fielder in the deep but mistimes it and in the end offers a simple catch to long off. Bukhari c Dockrell b Cusack 7(8) [4s-1]
48.4 Alex Cusack to Michael Rippon 1
1 run, short of length delivery outside off stump Rippon inside edges the cut onto his pads and it rolls to silly point
