Ed Joyce hit an unbeaten century as Ireland edged to a four-wicket victory in their tri-series one-day international against the United Arab Emirates in Dubai.
The UAE, playing a home one-day international against a full member nation for the first time in 24 years, set Ireland a target of 222 from their 50 overs.
Rameez Shahzad top-scored for the hosts with 75 before being dismissed caught and bowled by Boyd Rankin. Rankin was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 2-26, while Barry McCarthy, Peter Chase, and Kevin O'Brien also took two wickets apiece.
The visitors made the worst possible start to their chase, losing their opening two wickets for just five runs as both Paul Stirling and Andrew Balbirnie were dismissed for a duck.
Joyce steadied the ship though, hitting 116 off 149 balls to ensure Ireland reached their target with four balls to spare.
Ireland will play the UAE again on Saturday before they face Scotland next week.
