Ireland's Ken Doherty and Fergal O'Brien were 5-0 winners against the United Arab Emirates at the Snooker World Cup in China today.

The pair were reunited with their cues for the game after being forced to play with borrowed equipment in yesterday's 4-1 loss to China B due to problems with the transportation of baggage.

Thailand will be Ireland's next opponents at the tournament being hosted in Wuxi.
