Porterfield and Botha hurt Bermuda

Ireland 362 for 3 (Porterfield 153*, Botha 122) v Bermuda
Scorecard

William Porterfield hit his highest first-class score and Andre Botha made his second century in two Intercontinental Cup matches as Ireland took control on the opening day against Bermuda at Clontarf. The pair added 221 for the second wicket to ensure Bermuda spent the day chasing leather.

The partnership began early after Andrew White was bowled by George O'Brien for 5. It was all one-way traffic from then on as Porterfield began his day-long stay, while Botha showed the same form that brought him 186 against Scotland.

Botha's innings lasted 146 balls, including 20 boundaries, before he was removed by Stefan Kelly, but the problems didn't stop for Bermuda. Porterfield couldn't be shifted and Niall O'Brien made a speedy 39, adding 72 for the third wicket. With 300 on the board Ireland finally lost their third wicket as Dwayne Leverock struck with his left-arm spin.

Ireland, though, made confident progress through the closing stages of the day as Porterfield carried his score well past his previous best of 112 and beyond 150. Kevin O'Brien was set at the other with the promise of more runs to come.
