Ireland one win away...

Another fine ICC World Cricket League victory against UAE means Niall O'Brien's Ireland are one win away from World Cup qualification.

Trent Johnston took 4-25, Alex Cusack and John Mooney picked up two wickets apiece, and George Dockrell had excellent figures of 1-28 off ten overs as UAE were bowled out for 196.

Will Porterfield's 77 was the backbone of the chase and an unbroken fifth-wicket stand worth 61 between Gary Wilson (39*) and Kevin O'Brien (25*) helped Ireland to a six-wicket win.

Porterfield shared an opening stand worth 29 with Paul Stirling and then added 48 for the second wicket with Ed Joyce (22).

Leicestershire batsman and wicket-keeper O'Brien scored 20 and put on 47 with Porterfield for the third wicket before the left-hander fell with the score on 138 in the 37th over. Wilson and Niall's brother Kevin then combined and judged the chase to perfection.

Ireland remain top and an excellent net run rate means they need to win just one more game to secure their place in Australia in 2015. Their final four games come in the form of double-headers against Netherlands and Scotland.

* Ireland also won a T20 match against UAE in Sharjah by the same margin. Opening bowlers Tim Murtagh and Stirling took 3-11 and 2-16 respectively as UAE were restricted to 122-9. Porterfield (55) and Wilson (35*) again made valuable contributions as Ireland won with seven balls to spare.
