Cricket England vs Ireland

Different version of the game but looks like England test team have come crashed back down to earth. Bowled out for 85 in 23 overs :O Ireland currently 83 for 2. Not good with The Ashes a few days away

I wouldn't read anything into how badly England are doing as it's only a practice match, Scotland beat England in a one day game just over a year ago and England became world champions (just! :roll: ) 13 months later.

Practice match? Test matches aren’t practice matches and I’m sure the players on both teams will be taking it very seriously....

Sorry Mike, I don't have too much interest in the cricket, - but I just wanted to say "Cracking Avatar..." :lol:

And the 2nd innings collapse well under way.

One interesting stat.
Leach's 92 in second innings may be the first time a tail ender has outscored the entire side in the first!
