Ireland 209 (Porterfield 42) beat Denmark 110 (Langford-Smith 3-27) by 99 runs
David Langford-Smith helped Ireland open their European Championships campaign with a 99-run win over Denmark, in Glasgow, as he scored 22 then took three wickets. The Irish batting didn't really fire, but there were enough useful cameos to nudge the total over 200, which proved well above to capabilities of the Danish.
Ireland were well placed on 100 for 2 but stumbled to 173 for 9 as Denmark's bowlers fought back well in the middle overs. However, Ireland's score was boosted by a final-wicket stand of 36 between Langford-Smith and Paul Mooney. William Porterfield, the 21-year-old left hander, was the top scorer with 42.
Chasing 210, Denmark were never in the hunt and subsided in 32.4 overs. Langford-Smith followed up his runs with 3 for 27 and Andre Botha claimed the tidy figures of 2 for 14.
Ireland's next match is against Scotland on Saturday, followed by Italy on Monday then a full one-day international against Holland on Tuesday.
