Ger Siggins (Irish Daily Star)
Ireland coach Jeremy Bray said of the match winning innings by Adam Coughlan: “It was a great knock”, said Ireland coach Jeremy Bray, “but overall we were pretty poor. The shot selection was pretty baffling. It was very immature, which I suppose you have to expect at this level”.
“But we’ll stick with the same team as the guys deserve another chance.”
On Pembroke all rounder Barry McCarthy, who bowled superbly.
“He was exceptional, he bowled us back into the game. We bowled the wrong lines early on but luckily it didn’t cost us.”
On Shane Getkate who missed out in the game - “Shane was a bit sore in the groin after the two warm up games, so we rested him. But it showed that we desperately need him back and and he’ll be in as soon as he’s fully fit.”
