Will start in about 45 minutes.
That's a bit sad to read. Don't you like to see people progressing and succeeding in their careers? I do.
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.
Oh? I don't pay attention to any of those things like IPL, BPL and what have you.
"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."
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.
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.
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
Wanted Ireland to win, hate England as they steal players
