Denmark fall to impressive Ireland

Andrew McGlashan

Ireland made it two wins out of two with a five-wicket success against Denmark at Rathmines. Captain William Porterfield hit a calm half-century, combining in a opening stand of 77 with Gary Wilson (32). There was a mini-wobble as three wickets went for 16, but Andrew White and Reinhardt Strydom ensured there was no major panic. Freddie Klokker had played a lone hand with 85 off 126 balls, and only one other Danish batsman reached double figures. Kevin O'Brien and Kyle McCallan did most of the damage as Ireland continue to look a tidy outfit.

I was thinking, seeing as we know ten of the countries that have qualified for the 2009 WCL Div 1 tournament, and that all matches in that competition carry a minimum of List A status, then wouldn't it be appropriate if other ICC sanctioned one day matches between those ten teams carry List A status also? This would apply to Denmark v Ireland, Scotland v Denmark and Netherlands v Denmark in the current European Div 1 championship. It makes sense.

Assistant Editor Andrew arrived at ESPNcricinfo via Manchester and Cape Town, after finding the assistant editor at a weak moment as he watched England's batting collapse in the Newlands Test. Andrew began his cricket writing as a freelance covering Lancashire during 2004 when they were relegated in the County Championship. In fact, they were top of the table when he began reporting on them but things went dramatically downhill. He likes to let people know that he is a supporter of county cricket, a fact his colleagues will testify to and bemoan in equal quantities.
