Action from Scotland versus Ireland U17s (CricketEurope)
Scotland clinched the Celtic Cup 3-1 after a dominant display in the second T20 of the day at Forthill. The hosts never looked back after a second wicket stand of 111 between top scorer Max Lindsay and Ethan Ramsay (52). Lindsay's powerful unbeaten 76 included 4 sixes and came from just 52 balls. A total of 189 for 2 was always going to be challenging and Ireland came up well short, with Aaron Doyle's 32 the best of their 106. It's been a tough week for the Irish, whose playing resources have been stretched with many of their first-choice squad required for the U19 series in England, While on the face of it a heavy series loss to Scotland is a cause for concern, the reality isn't as bad as it may seem at first glance.
