Ireland Under 19s lose to England
England bounced back from its loss to Australia on the opening day of the tournament to beat Ireland by seven wickets.
The Irish batting line-up failed to fire with the English bowlers making light work of its top order, dismissing the side in the 42nd over.
Tyrone Kane (28) and George Dockrell (26) were the best of the Irish batsmen, contributing over half of the modest total of 109 set for England to chase.
Left-arm quick Reece Topley was dynamic with the ball, finishing the day with the impressive figures of three for 14 from nine overs to later collect the player of the match award.
England lost its openers early. But the Irish bowling attack could not stop England from patiently chipping away to surpass the total in the 36th over.
