Ireland bounced back from their opening day reversal to record a 77 run win against Denmark at Voorburg.

The Irish total of 245-8 was based around a fifth wicket stand of 89 between the North Down pairing of Peter Eakin and Alistair Shields who both recorded half centuries.

The pair had come together with the game evenly poised at 89-4, following the wickets of Tyrone Kane (27) and Scott Campbell (23), who had repaired the damage following the early wickets of David Barr and James McCollum.

Shields struck five boundaries in his 53 from 74 balls, while Eakin took just 68 deliveries for an excellent 54.

Basit Javed (2-27) was the pick of the Danish attack, while Aqeel Amjad also bowled well to pick up 2 for 51.

In reply Denmark lost both openers cheaply but a third wicket stand of 55 between Malik and skipper Basit Javed (37) brought their side right back into serious contention at 72 for 2.

However the left-arm spin duo of Ben Wylie (4-36) and Scott Campbelll (2-28) put Ireland firmly in control, and they never relinquished their stranglehold on the game thereafter as wickets fell at regular intervals.

Saad Ahmad (34) and Aqeel Amjad (27) both played useful cameos but Mark Adair (2-23) and skipper Tyrone Kane (2-30) closed out the game as Denamrk were dismissed for 168, Ireland completing a thoroughly deserved 77 run victory.
