Ireland swept their three-match ODI series with Kenya, beating the visitors by four runs via the Duckworth-Lewis system at Dublin on Sunday.


Batting first, Ireland piled up 256/7 in 50 overs, with Paul Stirling contributing a fine 84, contributions coming also from John Mooney (42), Kyle McCallan (26 not out) and Regan West (29 not out).


In reply, Kenya reached 240/6 off 46 overs, and fell short by four runs by the D/L method. Collins Obuya hammered 78 runs off 69 balls after skipper Maurice Ouma (61) and Alex Obanda (41) had chipped in usefully up the order.
