Ireland bounced back from Friday's loss to Scotland to exact revenge on France, whom they crushed to record a ten-wicket win.

Their first meeting in international cricket was memorable for all the wrong reasons as they were dismissed for just 24, 13 of which were bowling extras.

The scorecard had a distinctly binary look to it with eight players scoring 0 or 1, while 3 was the top score by a batter.

All six Irish batters used took wickets, with Eimear Richardson (2-0) and Leah Paul (2-5) taking two wickets apiece.

The Irish chase took just 16 balls, with Louise Little (12*) and Leah Paul (7*) getting the modest target with the minimum of fuss.

The Irish finish on Monday with a clash against The Netherlands to most likely see who will claim the runners-up slot behind Scotland, who play France in their last game.
