When is the rain due? :frowning:


#183

seriously a sport that stops when it rains, in ireland, it’s never going to work :expressionless:


#184

It might be one case where “You’ll never beat the Irish!” could be true.


#185

102 for 3 now. Game over, ball burst! No sign of rain on the radar either.


#186

I think We had 5 continuous days of no rain the summer of 1982.


#187

More like 5 continuous days of rain.


#188

Not this week coming!


#189

Hopefully, they can pick up one or two more wickets.


#190

Jaysus lads - can ye not take at least another one or two? :roll_eyes:


#191

Pakistan win by 5 wickets

Not a bad performance at all for our first ever Test match. Will learn a lot from it. Doubt well go as long as NZ did before we win our first test match.

I’d move Kev up the batting order


#192

Very good showing for our first ever test. Great day out in Malahide too, Pakistan fans are great craic!


#193

Was out there on Saturday afternoon and There was a good few families playing cricket on the back pitch and having picnics etc.

I’m going to try go to one of the 20/20 games


#194

Thinking of doing the same myself, 27th and 29th June?


#195

If the weather stays fair and any way warm, the T20 games should be brilliant.

Whoever conceived the idea of 20/20 cricket had great foresight.
It should be introduced to the 2020 Olympics.

#297

#298

Despite the cull, this survives… I guess you’re one of their favourites! :slight_smile:


#299

Opening batsman.

Just noticed the name of a South African test cricketer (currently playing for Kent)…
Heino Kuhn. I wonder do many people by him a pint of…

So… the English are getting some kind of revenge on Pakistan in the second test having suffered a bigger loss to them in the first test than Ireland’s loss to Pakistan.
