“I would take those two lads in my side every day of the week. It’s just frustrating when a couple of Irish lads play against us and it just happens that they were their top performers today,” Porterfield told Telegraph’s Belfast edition.
However, Porterfield said he was proud to watch Irish cricket grow.
“It’s great that Ireland can produce cricketers like that but we have lads coming through who are aspiring to be like Eoin and Boyd, and to get 10,000 people through the gate it proves that Irish cricket is still on the rise. We have come a long way since the 2007 World Cup,” he said.
“It was nice to lead from the front and score a century and, as we did in the Pakistan games, the top six are scoring the majority of the runs — and that’s what we’ve asked for. That’s the most pleasing thing, that in our last three ODIs, we have had someone who has scored a hundred in every game,” the Ireland skipper concluded.
