Ireland continue to press home advantage

Ireland 524 for 8 dec (Porterfield 166, Botha 122) v Bermuda 180 for 8 (Outerbridge 53)
Scorecard

Ireland continued to pummel a sorry Bermuda at Clontarf. On the second day of four, they reached 524 for 8 declared and then reduced the visitors to 180 for 8. Kevin O'Brien went on to make his 50, but fell as soon as he hit the landmark, then William Porterfield went soon after, adding 13 to his overnight score.

Trent Johnston was his usual reliable self, reaching 61 and he finally called a halt to proceedings to give his bowlers a dart at Bermuda. They soon broke through, Dave Langford-Smith removing Jekon Edness for 8. There followed some starts of promise for most of the top order - and the opener Steven Outerbridge even went on to make 53 - but they couldn't progress once into their twenties.

Bermuda had hoped their Under-19s would boost them, but so far they haven't made much impact. Stefan Kelly, Rodney Trott and Malachi Jones collected one wicket and 19 runs among the three of them, although they couldn't really have been expected to entirely reverse Bermuda's slump in form, particularly not against Ireland who are so proficient in this form of the game.
