Didn't they do well !

The team in the Carribean have performed impeccably both on and off the field..huge credit must go to Adi for Irelands current meteoric rise within the game! What next for Ireland ?

Shame about the Molins comments from Birrell, could have sidestepped the questions about his fitness etc. He was an excellent servant to the team and very much at the forefront of the revival of the international side. Will always remember his languid pulls and hooks onto the roof of the Stormont clubhouse in the fantastic West Indies win

Re Staffy & Team changes.
Hard to changing a winning (morally) side. Guys are performing well. The one man would be Whitey who I would shift up the order..the higher he has batted over the years the better his average (would like to see stats on this)...

I wonder does Adrian Birrell envisage making any changes to his team during this World Cup. I can't help feeling we have missed a trick during squad selection. Adi has picked the best cricketers in Ireland no question but his options are limited. I personally would have liked to have seen a left arm spinner in the team preferably Ralph Coetzee who would not have weakened the batting. The ability to take the ball away from the right handers would have complimented Kyle. I think we should maybe look at the batting order. International bowlers also find it difficult with the white ball bowling at left/right combination. Perhaps we should try Kevin O'Brien or Andrew White at 3 and drop Eoin Morgan down to 5. Just a suggestion. Any thoughts?

Ireland Test Cricket debate.

Nobody seriously believes Ireland are in a position to play test cricket right now, but the point is we would like some sort of way of protecting our ODI status and players and have a roadmap for the future. Test cricket is the pinnacle for any cricketer and noone would begrudge a player that opportunity. However it is slightly galling listening to the English media going on about overseas players in Ireland team when the best batsman in the ICC qualifiers who took us to the World cup is now in the English ranks. For Ireland to continue to develop we must create lots more players capable of reaching county level but even a few reaching Test or ODI level.It is England taking these players which will keep Ireland in the dark ages. The debate about Ireland playing test cricket is not about structures, finance or capabilities but about how we can create and keep our very best players to compete at the highest level.

Agnew has really got on my nerves this last while, but if we can beat England on Friday it will be great to see his reaction. Going to be glued to the screen again, but have a football dinner to attend so might miss the best bit as Trent smacks Monty over long on to win the game!


Judging by the state of his shoulder he will have to do it one handed!
