Blimey, it's the 'C' Team!
 
Lols a gift from Rankin to his former team, 5 wides down the legside.
 
Ireland got off to a flier but have slowed down now; hope they can win as it will be so awkward for Rankin and Morgan
 
Ireland should win this. Afterall they have 2 undercover agents :msd

That's a bit sad to read. Don't you like to see people progressing and succeeding in their careers? I do.
 
Ireland have done well, should play more ODIs, they compete well quite often.

They do have the right. However, I think playing for Ireland these days is probably bigger than what it was 4 years back.

Look at KOB for example, he got big contracts in BPL and then a 100K contract in CPL. He was also supposed to be paid 100K in the Inaugural PSL to be held in 2020 or something.
 
It's interesting with Rankin.

He's from Londonderry so I don't see an issue. He's a UK citizen by birth.

Be nice if Ireland got test staturs but I expect the poor boards (NZ, Bang, WI, Sri, Zim) to veto.

Oh? I don't pay attention to any of those things like IPL, BPL and what have you.

i might not care much, neither do you. But average cricket fans do and thats what matters....thats the harsh truth. No wonder trott doesnt have the fame many others do. Say bravo for example

"As an English cricket fan, I want to see my team England losing, so that from next year onwards they take this series with Ireland more seriously," says Menon. "England seems to be more interested in Australia T20s than Ireland ODI."
 
Hard to understand what the Irish commie is saying. He is speaking too fast. Its like Speedy Gonzalez commentating.
 
Ireland looks like the best minnow out there.

Everytime I see them play, they look like a proper international ODI team. They are not your typical jokers. They are in there to win.

They should have test status of some sort.
 
If they are granted Test status it will do us good because we can then play tests regularly with them :)

Agreed, they are better than Zim and the way Windies are playing, they might be a better Test team than Windies.

Would be interesting to see how Ireland fares against Windies.
 
hope ireland invite india for a 5-match odi series next year before the england series

would help irish cricket a lot & also we can try out some youngsters in that series
 
Didn't Bangladesh just reject an Irish offer of an ODI Series?

ODI series? Retarded BCB rejected a 4 day match series against the Irish. BCB elections, A team tour, U-23 team tournament, U-19 tour, BPL fixing scandals, DPL, preparing stadiums for the T20 WC....looks like the board has forgotten that there is something called National Team. Would have been good for our lads, they would have got some good exposure to Pace friendly conditions.

The last time we toured Ireland we beat them 3-0 but in a T20 series. An 4-day match or ODI series against Irishmen would boost our self confidence in alien conditions.

:facepalm:

There would be absolutely no reason not to - even if you just send a semi national team with many of the younger guys.

Australia 'A' played a four day match against Ireland before the Ashes and Smith, Khawaja, Haddin, Siddle, Pattinson, Agar and Lyon all played in that match and in the Ashes.
 
Sounds like a pretty dismal England effort all round. Hopefully they lose.

I dont think it was a matter of sending a B or a C team. BCB were first of all too busy with so many issues that their lazy bums didnt feel like making all the arrangements for the tour. To be fair to BCB, they had a lot of headaches anyways, regarding the MF/SF scandals and probably wanted the international players at home for questionning, keeping in mind the ACSU came over for investigation when the offer was made. Yet, as a fan I feel disgusted because here I can see my team not getting enough cricket turns down a generous offer. Its more like a beggar rejecting money. BCB should somehow managed to send players that were not even in the picture for fixing, i.e. those that were not a part of the Dhaka Gladiators squad.

Also, Cricket Ireland could have arranged a series at another time. I think after the NZ series in october, BD could easily tour Ireland.

They should take your spot really you've done nothing since you were given test status.

I think Ireland could have been a better than Zimbabwe and Bangladesh if Rankin and Morgan joined them. Goes to show the sad state of cricket. Playing for the 11th ranked team is not good enough for these guys.

Although T20 leagues may not be real cricket, it still creates a great options for players who dont play for the best of teams. Someone like KOB could get a good contract in BPL/SLPL/CPL/IPL/FLT20..........Somalian Premier league. Kinda like the way that football players dont mind playing for their National team no matter how ordinary their team is, since they get good income as well as fame from their club

Better that they(Irish) have teams like BD and Zim with whom they can win against :yk
 
I can see them beating us, wi and zims on the odd occasion.

Ireland will be defeated, heavily.

The ball was moving about a bit at the start of both innings. Not anymore.
 
What a great comeback by England!

Irish are still not out of it 1 wicket here they will be right back in it.
 
Yeah I remembered how good bopara and morgan where doing until both got out.

I feel bad for Ireland, they always find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Then again, I dont want to mention the number of times Bangladesh lost a match they should have won. Infact, we should have won that match against Australia back in 2006. We took a 150 run lead in the first innings, to end up losing by 3 wickets and had we had the 2 catches of Punter had not been dropped we would have won and that too against arguably one of the best team the world has evern seen with warne, hayden, Gilly, Punter, McGrath, Warne. One part of being a minnow is that you will lose matches you should have won, and thats because of the lack as experience
 
Pakistanis should watch this match and learn how to WIN even if there was a POOR start.

Hahaha we win again. Their best players want to play for England and not a minnow!
 
Oh, we were losing two hours ago!

Wanted Ireland to win, hate England as they steal players
 
don't understand why pakistan don't pinch tamim iqbal and abid nabi

cos Ireland is part of the uk. You can't just get Bengalis because they're in the same continent. Anyway we don't need Iqbal anyway, he's slightly over rated imo, we need Shakib

Ireland is not part of the United Kingdom. England vs Ireland today was two different countries.

Ireland's bowler Tim Murtagh is English, and Max Sorenson is South African.

Logically, you must now hate Ireland too.

I've often wondered how you steal a human being. I mean, I can understand slavery, but I believe that has been abolished everywhere except a few dreadful little counties no-one cares about.

So how does one steal a cricketer? Do you sneak in to the country in the middle of the night and kidnap their families and force them to play sports for you using the family as ransom?
