William Porterfield Profile

A compact left-hander, William Porterfield has been a key part of Ireland’s rise to the top of Associate cricket and had long-been earmarked for a major role in the team.

He took part in the ICC Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh in 2004 and then spent time at the ICC Winter Training Camp in 2006, later captaining Ireland A that year. He soon graduated to the full and provided a rock at the top of the order.

He began his one-day career in Hussey-esque style as he notched two early hundreds and he came back from the recent World Cricket League in Kenya as the tournament’s second-highest scorer and averaged 110.66 in his five matches. An excellent 85 in the 2007 World Cup helped Ireland to famously beat Bangladesh and enabled him to earn a professional contract with Gloucestershire in county cricket.

With the drain of top-class batsman away from Ireland in search of higher honours – notably Ed Joyce and Eoin Morgan – Porterfield’s role is increasingly important especially now that he is also the leader of the strongest Associate nation.
