    Really enjoyed the England innings yesterday, amazing batting and score

    That D/L system simply does not work for 20/20. Surely if a team only has to get a third/quarter of the score the other team got then they should only have a third/quarter of the batsmen.

    Windies should have had to get 60 with only 3 or 4 batsmen tops.

    191 and still lost, gutter !!

    Ireland will be good game today, especially as we have Irelands best player

    That DL shit was a joke last night.
    It totally benefits the side batting second. Because we built our innings to the end we were shit on.
    It should be, that IF it's a shortened game (ie 8 overs) they shouldhave to beat our BEST 8 overs losing no more wickets.
    Basically they were chasing a score equivalent to our first 8 overs when our best 8 were at the end. How is that fair.
    Furthermore when they fix the score at 63 how come it didn't rise as they lost wickets? Basically they knew they could throw wood at it every single shot as they had 10 wickets in hand.
    I'd back the Netherlands to get that total or Canada.
    It's bullshit and it costs us too often.

    Absolutely right. The D/L needs a lot of tweaking for 20/20.

    [/quote]I thought that was a fair comment made earlier that if a team picks up an option on a player like a Joyce (eg) and then they dont want to use that player, they should be able to play immediately for thier home team.

    Here comes the fucking rain.
    This is ruining the tournament.

    Yea. while it is great to see the likes of Ed Joyce and Eoin Morgan doing so well and playing for England it would be nice to balnace there success with some benefit for their home country.
    Cricket is such a minority sport here in Ireland and it needs as much help as it can get to progress.
    That said, there is probably more positive exposure for cricket in Ireland when Morgan plays well for England that there would be if he was still plodding along with Ireland.

    The over all rules about representation do seem a bit funny.
    Ed Joyce helped Ireland qualify for the last one day world Cup and then played against them for England. I think there is a four year rule that now prevents him representing Ireland again. All very odd.

    As a dry run for the World Cup, if you'll pardon the expression.

    Wales & England got very lucky yesterday.

    Still i think we have a decent chance of doing well in this tournament.

    Hopefully the irish can continue to improve the likes of Rankin and that 17 year old spinner for us.

    it seems to be only batsmen. We can find young English bowlers but not the best batsmen

    Bring Strauss & Trott back and they may as well play the home games in Jo'burg.

    Some Pakistani guy got a 5 wicket maiden against Australia the other day. That must be a first in International Cricket.
