Donemana’s William McClintock topscored in Ireland U19’s 79 run defeat to India, at the ICC World Cup.

McClintock scored 58 runs and his 113 partnership with Lorcan Tucker, gave Ireland a chance of beating one of the tournament favourites at the Bangla National Cricket Stadium this morning.

William was joined in the Ireland side by twin brother Gary, who took a wicket during India’s innings and fellow North West man Coleraine’s Varun Chopra.

Ireland face Nepal, who caused somewhat of a shock after they defeated New Zealand this morning, in their second Group D game on Saturday moring.
