Worrying signs regarding the depth of Irish cricket today as a strong Ireland A side lost for the second time in 3 days to a Scotland A side.

Their batting looked particularly poor with only Lorcan Tucker's 61 being the only score to crow about.

Curtis Campher has kept up his good form since his international bow v England earlier in the year.

Got 4/46 for Leinster v North West Warriors today.

Leinster really are the dominant force in Irish domestic cricket. Lorcan Tucker's 82 set them up to have yet another undefeated season.

Really suprised Simi SIngh wasn't picked up by any of the 'Division 2' T20 Blast teams. He has released merry hell in their domestic league. Finished his campaign with 3-27 for Leinster against the North Western Warriors. Ends the tournament with 10 wickets at an average of 13.70 also got 137 runs across four fixtures with the bat.

Ireland A were 10-5 within the first 5 overs of a ODI against Netherlands A. They rallied to 94 but were soundly beaten. Vivian Kingma got figures of 5-3-5-3.

Quite an about face from their victory in the first match on Tuesday.

After being spanked yesterday, Ireland did the spanking in the decider today. Graeme McCarter's 6-32 got Netherlands all out for 105.

The Irish made a bit of a meal of it but got there for the loss of five wickets.
