Johnston a doubt for Friday's clash

Mohali, India – Ireland could be without inspirational player Trent Johnston for Friday’s ICC Cricket World Cup Group B match against West Indies.

The right-arm new ball bowler and former captain picked up a knee injury against India on Sunday in Bangalore and could bowl only five overs during which he picked up two wickets for just 16 runs. If he is unavailable it would be a major blow to the Irish.

The 36-year-old Johnston has been his side’s most successful bowler for Ireland with six wickets from three matches.
