Action from Phoenix Park (Colm Byrne)
Phoenix are through to the final of the All-Ireland U15 boys cup after a convincing six-wicket win against a spirited Cork County side at Phoenix Park. The home side's bowling unit all did well to restrict the Munster side to 81 all out with Abas Faizi top-scoring with 20 (3 fours). The bowling honours went to Karl Tully (3-4) and Daniel Sugrue (3-14) both claiming three scalps. The Phoenix chase faltered slightly at the start as they lost three wickets - two of them to Sahil Momand (2-23). However a powerful unbeaten 36 from just 19 balls, which included 6 fours from Chris Scully sealed the win just before the halfway point. Phoenix will now face the winners of the CSNI versus Newbuildings semi-final.
