Sarfaraz (74) and Washington (62) shared 110 runs in 17.2 overs to pull India from 55 for 4 and post a competitive 268 for nine in their stipulated 50 overs after Ireland won the toss and decided to field.
India then returned to dismiss Ireland for 189 in 49.1 overs, despite fifties by Lorcan Tucker (57) and William McClintock (58) in the Group D match played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium here.
Chasing 269 to win, Ireland had a disastrous start as both their openers Jack Tector (1) and Stephen Doheny (4) were sent back to the pavillion within four overs after being run-out by Armaan Jaffer and skipper Ishan Kishan respectively.
