Quality ending to the Sri Lanka-India match earlier. India needed 4 off the last ball, the Sri Lanka fielders saved the 4 near the rope but India ran 3 to tie the game.

handy 10 wicket win over kenya today

Kenya, after opting to bat first in the Twenty20 International, was bowled out for a mere 71 in 19 overs. In its reply, Ireland chased down the target in just 7.2 overs to end at 72 for no loss.

Kenya: 71, 19 overs (Tanmay Mishra 28; Boyd Rankin 3-20, Alex Cusack 2-5, John Mooney 2-11, George Dockrell 2-14)

Ireland 72-0, 7.2 overs (William Porterfield 56 n.o.)

Yeah heard the radio report this morning and saying Kenyan's were an absolute joke
 
Big win for Nambia over scotland today Thumbs Down was looking for a scots win there then an Irish victory over them would sort of neutralise the Nambia defeat as think only the top team in the mini league goes through to the final and get one of the two qualification spot's available (think thats right)
 
Think its Italy tomorrow so another 10 wicket win will do the run rate a world of good

Just looking there and didnt realise there was still a chance to make the final if we dont top the group though it'll be pretty tough
 
Cant see Nambia gettin beat though the rest of the group stage. So should be aiming for 2nd place and hopefully a game again Canada then play winners of Dutch v Scots and get revenge on Nambia
 
WTF is the craic with Di Venuto playing for Italy?? Think maybe we should be checking if Hayden, McGrath and Warne are eligible for us if thats how they're playing it LOL Hamish Marshall just isnt the calibre off import we need now LOL

Boyd is bowling some of the best stuff I have seen him deliver.

The top five, Joyce excluded are out of form and Wilson has been required in every game to "do a job"

Stirling is doing great work with the ball though.

Big tests ahead though if we are to get a spot.

two group winners (a1 and b1) play each other, winner gets a place

meanwhile a2 plays b3 and a3 plays b2, winners play each other, winners of that play the losers of the above match (a1,b1) for a place in the tournament


Posted By: PhilliyK
Date Posted: 19 Mar 2012 at 1:59pm
Kerzy the top team in each group go into a play off for one off the spots in the overall final. Then 2nd in Group A plays 3rd in group B and 3rd in Group A play 2nd in Group B(Ireland). The winners off both games then play off for the right to play the loser off the game between the 2 group winners for the 1 spot left in the overall final. Then I think the winner off the overall final gets the 1 spot on offer(not sure if there is 1 or 2 spots available for the world 2020 tournament)

Canadians traditionally have about 3 spinners in the team and was that not our downfall again Namibia Kev? Would still expect something around a 30 run/5 wicket win again them

They are traditional unfit though and we are playing them in the 20,000 seater SCS.  Big outfield, bat first and put them about the pitch.

There didn't look like there was much for the spinners in it against Scotland.

Our downfall v Namibia was a number of things.  The 24 run over from Mooney, us slowing the rate and not taking chances, Wilson gifting his wicket having got back into it.  Uganga took them to 4 runs, and they were sh*te.

How's their batting going Kev? Havent been following them at all but reckon our batsmen should get a decent 150 total again their bowlers(Borren aside there's no real stand out bowler imo) but if Ten Doeshate gets goin we'd be goosed

In summary Kerrzy.

Afghans were in a few sections behind the wicket, and basically fenced in.  Whereas we were spread about around the midwicket section.

Neturals and all were in our section and some lad produced a pakistan flag.  Cue mayhem.

The Afghans started roaring and shouting, then a load of them scaled the fence and charged our section.  They started beating the sh*t out of the fella that they thought had produced the flag, with their shoes, and the others started throwing shoes at us.

The lads with the flag ran into our section, cue the Afghans trying to row with us. 

It all got a bit mental for 5/10 minutes.  Security was a complete joke.  Then we got "evacuated" into the VIP boxes for the end, as the head of security claimed he couldn't guarantee our safety. 

Fun times.

£40 is some amount of money for a friendly game...

After I posted that I checked my email and was £37.50 for the england game 2 or 3 years ago and it was pretty much a wash out/piss up off a game. Have an Eire q/f ticket booked and still no confirmation from work about getting the extra time off for it so this is looking very likely though if I have to go on me own i'll have to be supporting the aussies in the hope some fit aussie burds are present Big smile

A draw against Australia Cool


Can believe they didnt refund tickets. I know for England games they refund a certain percentage depending on how long is played

How long got played LD as fell asleep for a while there(thought I was back in Poland coming in at 7am last night), but think it's a minimum of 15 or 20 overs for them not to refund the fans

They played just over 10 overs and thats what they needed to avoid a refund. It probably is the minimum but a lot more associations are more friendly in terms of refunds. I know Cricket Ireland are hardly the BCCI or ECB but there should be an element of friendliness regarding it. I cant see many people buying tickets the next time a big team comes to Ireland unless its on the day.

Ah when I went to the England game a few years back it ended up 15 overs a side and that was only because the players wanted to get back out and didn't mind the injury risk, but ur hadn't been for the weather forecast I would have went and will try to get to the next one, weather permitting
