(Netherlands doesnt have a good bowler even at this level)

So Ireland ended the day with 2 victories, Denmark with 2 defeats, and the other two shared 1 victory each. One thing that stnads out is the composition of the Denmark U17 team with only 2 players from the mainstream population while the rest, 9, were from minority populations in those countries. This means that Denmark is losing player base in the mainstream population.
