Ireland left it late to win their World Twenty20 warm-up game against Nepal, but eventually triumphed in style.

Having lost the toss and been put in, Nepal made 137 for seven in their 20 overs. Gyanendra Malla top-scored with 47 and put on 55 with captain Paras Khadka (31), while Andy McBrine, Kevin O'Brien and George Dockrell each took two wickets.

Captain William Porterfield (38) and Andrew Poynter (28) had Ireland going well at 78 for two, but they slumped to 102 for five before Gary Wilson and Stuart Thompson saw them to 141 for five and a five-wicket victory.

Thompson hit 19 not out from nine balls including the winning four from the first ball of the last over, which followed back-to-back sixes from Wilson (31no) at the end of the 19th.
