Australia defeated Ireland by 23 runs under the Duckworth/Lewis method for rain interrupted matches in their lone one-day international, in Belfast, on Friday.

An opening stand of 139 between David Warner (84) and Joe Burns (69) gave the Aussies, fresh from their Ashes defeat, the foundation for a big score.
