A commanding win over Pakistan in the final T20 international in Lahore saw Ireland clinch a historic first T20I series victory over Pakistan, with a brilliant half-century from Gaby Lewis setting up the triumph.

Her opening partner Amy Hunter contributed 40 in a 110-run stand, falling just three runs short of an Irish record T20I partnership.

Ireland bowled Pakistan out for 133 after setting them 168, finishing their innings just four wickets down.

The historic series win is the first time Ireland women have won a series against Pakistan, their first series win overseas against a Test-playing nation, and the first for any Ireland side in Pakistan.

It is a mammoth achievement and comes on the heels of the Men’s team beating both the west Indies and England in Australia in recent weeks.

In the fourth episode of our Sport for Business Leadership series we speak to Warren Deutrom, CEO of Cricket Ireland.

We talk about the highs and lows of performance; about bringing a sport from an employee base of one to 40 and turnover of €250,000 to more than €12 million; and about the ambition to make cricket mainstream in Ireland, matching its position elsewhere around the world.
