Ireland Wolves finished their South African tour on a winning note as they chased down 277 to beat a Northern Titans Academy XI by four wickets.

Pete Johnston's side have chased well on the trip and Saturday's batting display was again an impressive one with the top seven all contributing to a potentially tricky chase.

Jack Tector - one of three siblings in the starting XI after Tim was drafted in following a spate of illness and injury in the camp - top scored with 60, sharing stands of 64 for the opening wicket with James McCollum (25) and 48 for the second with Stephen Doheny (21).

Skipper Harry Tector (28) and George Dockrell (33) kept the chase on track, but the match defining partnership came between Shane Getkate and Gareth Delany.

Delany clubbed four sixes and four fours in a rapid 43 from just 18 balls, as he and Getkate added 50 in rapid time for the fifth wicket.

Instonians' all-rounder Getkate was no slouch either, clearing the ropes five times in a  hard-hit unbeaten 51 from just 39 deliveries to seal the four wicket win with 7.4 overs in hand.

Earlier, Craig Young (2-28) was the pick of the Wolves attack, while there was a wicket apiece for Harry Tector, Shane Getkate, George Dockrell, Gareth Delany and Tyrone Kane.

The Wolves only remaining confirmed fixture is at Comber against Bangladesh on May 11th, but there are sure to be many more games arranged before the end of the season.

The next international action involves the senior men's side who face Afghanistan in India on March 6, 8 and 10 in a three-game T20I series.
