Ireland scored 195 for four in 40.2 overs before the last stoppage, with captain Andy Balbirnie (65) and opener Will Porterfield (63) providing significant contributions.

The second match in he three-game series will be played at the same venue on Tuesday. The teams will also contest three Twenty20 Internationals.
