In the game played between Ireland and Sri Lanka at Dublin, home team, Ireland won the toss and elected to field. They made a fine start to the match by taking early wickets. Both left-handed opening batsmen, Kusal Perera and Lahiru Thirimanne were dismissed early in the innings. It was the Middlesex medium pacer, Tim Murtagh, known for his ability to bowl with good control who dismissed Perera. He was followed back to the pavilion by  Thirimanne, who lost his wicket to the Australian born medium pacer, Alex Cusack. Murtagh bowled with an excellent economy rate for Ireland.

Sri Lankan batsmen certainly struggled to counter the tough conditions on view for batting that one can get to see in Ireland during May. Upul Tharnga was the one batsman who was able to play well, and to an extent counter the tough conditions on view. Dinesh Chandimal, known for playing shots curbed his natural instincts to play a fine knock as well.

Tharanga though, lost his wicket to Stuart Thompson and that was a huge blow to Sri Lanka’s chances of getting a good score on the board. The Ireland setup is captained by William Porterfield and Sri Lanka, by the ever present all-rounder, Angelo Mathews.
