Australia and England continue to set the pace and are the clear leaders, having won all their four matches so far after the second day of the U13 North West World Cup.

Adam Britton 36*, Roy McGerrigle 35*, and Jacob Cloughton 31* were all in the runs as Australia/Donemana beat Zimbabwe/NW Girls by 51 runs, with Cody Wallace making 17 as they made 72 chasing 123.

India had won their morning match thanks to a fine batting effort from George Dalton 36*, and Bobby Brolly 35* in their total of 111 for 0. That was 17 runs too many for Sri Lanka/Bonds Glen despite 22 apiece for Sam Haslett and Shane Diver, both of whom made 22. The best of the bowlers were Leon Campbell (2-18) and Shane King (2-20).

England/Newbuildings edged out West Indies/Bready by 13 runs in one of the games of the day. Lewis Campbell 33, and Reece Clarke 22 helped England to 87 for 5, with Mansi Bhavsar taking 4-15.

West Indies got close as they responded with 74 for 6, with Ben Campbell hitting 20 and George Rough 14.

Sam McClintock 35*, Charlie Simpson 25, and Jack McIvor 19 all scored heavily in their total of 116, despite fine bowling displays by Dara Higgins 3-3, and Harry Coyle 2-19.

New Zealand were restricted to 66/3, with Ryan Lamrock 38* the best of the batters.

Lamrock (34*) and Rhys Thompson (24*) had been in the runs as New Zealand beat Ireland/St Johnston by 10 wickets earlier the day, with Tyler Averill (4-4) having the best bowling figures of the day as the Irish were bowled out for 64.

The final game of the day saw Sri Lanka/Bonds Glen prove too strong for a badly understrength Zimbabwe/NW Girls side.

Two wickets apiece for Jacob (2-3) and Sam Haslett (2-9) kept Zimbabwe to 50 for 6, and despite two wickets for Cody Wallace (2-7) and Charley Scott (1-12), Sri Lanka won by seven wickets, with Adam Thompson making 15 not out.
