Bio

William Porterfield has represented Ireland at every level from under-13 up. A natural leader, the batsman also regularly captained teams as he rose through the ranks.

He earned his first international cap against Namibia in 2006 while his first official one-day international appearance was against Scotland mere months later.

Porterfield succeeded Trent Johnston as captain of the Irish team and has since led his team on more than 100 occasions, to be the most successful Irish captain in the team’s history. 

With six ODI hundreds to his name, Porterfield is also a talented fielder and Ireland will rely on him to perform well when they head to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.

It will be his third appearance at the tournament. In 2007, he scored 85 in Ireland’s upset win over Bangladesh while in 2011, he captained his team to a three-wicket win over old rivals England.

When he isn’t playing for Ireland, Porterfield lines up for Warwickshire in County cricket.
