I'd say that's probably because we're sh*t at this level

Superb innings from Sterling and Balbirnie. Pity there wasn't a crowd there tonight

Brilliant, great win after the two comprehensive enough drubbings

Any thought of watching the play off went out the window early on after the solid start to the chase

Brilliant chase! Willey made a balls of it handing the match to Ireland! That was the turning point. Held their nerve really well

This year, we've beaten the World Champions at T20 away from home, and  the World Champions at ODI away from home. We should have won at least one ODI in the West Indies, also, only for Mark Adair to drop the ball in front of the stumps trying to run out the last man in the last over.

The change of captaincy from Porterfield to Balbirnie has worked also. We're still not winning enough matches, but whilst the old reliables are still contributing, there is a fresh wave of players coming through, and will hopefully get even better over time.

The first two ODI's were difficult to watch, but the 10 points won in the last game, could be the difference between getting to the next WC and staying at home again.
