On that form Ireland's bowling won't frighten any Test opponents, but their batting is pretty decent. Balbirnie got a double hundred, first one ever for Ireland.
How's the English dude who opens for you these days shaping up?

Its enjoyable watching Broad and Jimmy but the windies really are bad. Why? Surely they have more talented players?

Going to the ODI at OT

Usually arguments over money, players from small islands being overlooked for inferior players from larger islands, test cricket being less money making than the shorter forms of the game/IPL meaning the concentration and skills are being tailored for that..
