Captain Jack Crowley scored 51 runs. Dunkett remained unbeaten after scoring 107 runs off 78 balls.
Ireland captain Paul Stirling said: “We’re very disappointed with the way we went today, we’ve had a few weeks to reflect on our performance and improve. When you’re bowling to world-class players there you are under pressure, after the start we can’t control the game. I love playing cricket and it will continue for a long time and hopefully there will be more runs left.
