Ireland marched into the final with another resounding win, this time against Hungary.

The Irish continued to rotate their batting line-up and once again it proved successful as Tim Tector and Cameron Melly got them off to the proverbial flyer.

YMCA opener Tector thumped five sixes in a 13-ball 39 as 50 came up in three overs.

Melly then took up the mantle as he and Gavin Hoey (18) put on 62 for the second wicket.

The runs kept flowing as Scott MacBeth joined his Brigade colleague Melly - 56 coming from the last 20 balls.

Melly top-scored with an unbeaten 58 from 28 balls (4 fours, 5 sixes), while Macbeth's 12-ball 45 not out included 6 sixes.

A total of 168 for 2 was certainly an imposing one, and despite a hard-hit 37 from Derbyshire's Leus Du Plooy they never came close to worrying Ireland.

Tim Tector (2-3) removed both Du Plooy brothers, while his YMCA colleague Olly Riley again bowled with real pace.

The only concern for Pete Johnston's side will be an unusually sloppy fielding display with two dropped catches and a number of misfields.

Ireland will play either Hungary again or Finland in the final at 7.30pm on Saturday evening.
