Ireland clinched Group D of the European Championships with their third win over Hungary and will proceed to Finals week later in the month.

This was their toughest test yet as Hungary posted 137 for 2 with a half century from Ximus du Plooy.

Ireland's batters though have dominated all week and did once again in the decider.

Seamus Lynch set the tone with an explosive 36 from just 11 balls (2 fours, 4 sixes) as he dominated an opening stand of 54 in only three overs.

Fellow opener Tim Tector and Scott Macbeth continued to clear the ropes with ease, with the pair hitting a combined 11 sixes as they put on 62 in just 26 deliveries.

Tector also hit two fours in his top-score of 48 (21 balls), while Macbeth's unbeaten 17-ball 44 ensured the eight wicket win in the penultimate over.

Pete Johnston' side have been the stand-out side by a considerable margin, but they will face a sterner test in nine days where holders The Netherlands, Italy, Jersey, and hosts Spain have already qualified, likely to be joined by an England XI and Scotland.
