Ireland has had a pretty ordinary run in the cricketing world. However, there have been quite a few names that blink through our minds when we speak of Ireland cricket team. One of them is unquestionably William Porterfield. Captaincy has been something that naturally comes to him. 

Ireland fared brilliantly under his captaincy, especially in 2011 World Cup where they made England bite the dust and registered one of the biggest upsets over England. Besides, the 2015 World Cup was no different for Ireland as they nearly managed to make the knockout stage but the Windies subjugated them with a higher run rate. 

Nonetheless, Ireland struggled in the recent 2018 World Cup Qualifiers and failed to fix themselves a 2019 World Cup slot. Hence, Porterfield will be one of the few captains to miss the 2019 World Cup to be held in England and Wales.
