Ireland ended their ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup campaign with a second successive win, this time against Uganda in the Plate Championship play-off final on Saturday.

Eoin Morgan's side restricted the Africans to 165-8 after Uganda won the toss and then knocked off the required runs for the loss of four wickets.

Morgan was the man who steered his side home with an unbeaten 60 as Ireland secured the victory with 14.1 overs in hand.

The win meant Ireland finished as the 13th ranked of the 16 teams in action, ahead not only Uganda but also the other side they defeated, Namibia, and Scotland.

Ireland's victory was founded upon some excellent, disciplined spin bowling that strangled the life out of the Uganda innings.

Gary Kidd took 2-26, leg-spinner Greg Thompson picked up 1-21 and James Hall took 0-37 with all three of them bowling their full ten-over allocations and in the face of the restrictions that trio imposed Uganda were never able to break free.

Six of their top eight batsmen reached double figures but no one went on to make a score that would have lifted them beyond 200, something they managed just once in the tournament.

Top score was Jimmy Okello who made 45 from 84 balls with three fours but in the face of impressive Ireland bowling only one other player - Davis Arinaitwe with 21 - reached 20.

The other successful bowlers were seamer Neil Gill, who captured 2-29, also in ten overs, and Andrew Poynter, with 1-17 in five overs.

Niall McDarby went wicketless in five expensive overs that cost 32 runs as he struggled with a suspected muscle strain but he still had the satisfaction of finishing the tournament with 13 wickets, an impressive haul in tough conditions for pace bowlers.

Uganda started off well when they bowled, removing both Ireland's openers for 31 but then Morgan took change with an 83-ball innings that included three fours and a six.

He added 67 with Gary Wilson (25) and 51 with Poynter (21) and those two stands killed off any hopes Uganda had of a second successive win after their victory over Scotland on Friday.

For Uganda, Ochan completed a fine all-round match with 2-26, Arinaitwe picked up 1-29 and the other wicket-taker was Emmanuel Isaanez (1-43).

Morgan said afterwards: 'We have come a long way since being bowled out for less than 100 in our opening match against Zimbabwe and to get two wins is very pleasing.

"We were able to compete well with two Test nations (England and New Zealand) and the only disappointment there was to lose both games as we set ourselves a target of a win against a Test side.

"As against Namibia, our spinners were right on top of their game and it is shame they are only peaking now.

"If we had been here a week or two earlier then maybe they would have peaked sooner but that was not possible."

Uganda coach Sam Walusimbi said: "Their spinners really pinned us down and slowed the scoring rate and I thought we were about 40 or 50 runs short of a good score.

"We were always going to struggle with the pitch getting easier and then Morgan's innings decided it."

Uganda head home with just one win from their campaign, against Scotland and Walusimbi hoped his players had learnt from the experience.

"We score runs at home but here you have to graft for runs, wait for the ball, play against spin and play straight. Those will be lessons I hope we have taken on board.

"We came here with fast bowlers and they have found out they need to bowl a much beter line and length than they are used to.

"At times they have been clobbered and you hope they have learnt from that."
