Berrington steers Scots to victory

Richie Berrington

A virtuoso display of batting from Richie Berrington fired Scotland to their highest one-day international total as they completed a remarkable comeback to beat Ireland in Edinburgh.

Berrington struck six sixes off 23 balls as his 56 rejuvenated the fightback and Josh Davey sealed the win with a boundary as Scotland reached 323 for five with nine balls to spare.

Ireland looked near-certain winners after Paul Stirling hit his third century in four one-day internationals to send them on their way to a 320 for eight total.

The 20-year-old took just 83 balls to reach his century before being caught out on 113 after unleashing some huge strikes as Ireland belatedly got the summer tri-series under way.
