Flatmates turned foes: Porterfirled and Eoin Morgan share a joke at the coin toss ahead of an ODI between Ireland and England last year.

William Porterfield is planning for life after cricket but is in no mood to give it up just yet.

The 35-year-old from Donemana may have lost the Ireland captaincy at the end of last year but still has plenty of advice to offer his successor, Andy Balbirnie, and as long as he is churning out the runs at the top of the order is keen to keep on going - whenever the action resumes.

"I've been doing some property stuff online, mainly because I've an interest in property. I'm not sure how much I'll use it but want to stay involved in cricket and think I can do both, something which is highlighted more with what is going on at the minute," said Porterfield.
