Alam century guides Munster to victory over Leinster U15
Kaasim Alam at the Mardyke following his 102 v Leinster

Limerick's Kaasim Alam continued his fine form with a century (102) against Leinster U15 to guide Munster to an unassailable 2-0 lead in their Tri-Series at the Mardyke.

The Munster boys were coming off the back of a hard fought 11 run victory in the T20 opener the previous evening and looked to take the series with a second win in their 45 over encounter at the Mardyke.

A century from opener Kaasim Alam (102) and a half century from Isaac Whitaker (52*) saw the Munster side to an extremely competitive target of 254-8.

In replay the Leinster innings never gained any real momentum besides their impressive middle order batsman De Klerk with 51*. With the ball Diarmuid Carey (2-30) and Kieran O'Reilly (2-42) were the standout bowlers restricting the visitors to just 186.

Tri-Series [Game 2]

Munster Youth XI 254-8 (Alam 102, Whitaker 52*) beat LeinsterU15 186 all out (De Klerk 51*, Carey 2-30, O'Reilly 2-42) by 68 runs at the Mardyke.  scorecard
