Cricket


#62

Balls… a four.
8 runs needed from 3 balls.


#63

This is so exciting …


#64

7 from 2. Ervine off strike.


#65

All over. The ball is firmly in Ireland’s court now!!!


#66

The unlikely result has happened. Hopefully we can take advantage of our big break tomorrow. Be a tough game though.


#67

Amazing rub of the green. Hope we take advantage tomorrow


#68

Hope it lashes rain tomorrow in Harare. All day, please.


#69

IF its rained off are we through


#70

Yep… hence why I hope it rains.


#71

IF it rains Ireland,Scotland, Afg and Zim end up on 5 points how do we go through then ?


#72

Better nett run rate.


#73

Must be one of the few times Irish people are actually praying for it to rain. :grin:

 *    Starts rain dance  *

#74

Cricket. The heartbeat of our nation.


#75

That was just amazing stuff! Who’dve thunk the nat cricket team would bring so much drama over so many years, and not even a pirate Morgan in sight. If we make it through its poetic justice for all the disadvantages we’ve had against us!


#76

Very slow progress in batting v Afghanistan. Balbirnie should really give up his wicket by having a go - get Kevin O’Brien in. It will be a low scoring game, however. But if it rains at the D/L method is introduced, I think it will hand the initiative to Afghanistan.


#77

it is a really low scoring game … at least from an Irish perspective. Will we even get near 200?


#78

Most games have been low scoring affairs. If Kevin O’Brien lets loose foe the last few overs they should get to 200, possibly 215-220. 200 will be difficult to defend. 220 would put serious pressure on the Afgnans.

Another wicket down. :frowning:

NOOO… NOT OUT! No ball.

Followed by a wide!

So, they went from being 176/6 to 180/5!


#79

Saw that! You’d have to hope at 180 with 24 balls left we might get near 220?


#80

Need O’Brien on strike.
THERE WE GO! SIX!
And then a four.

O’Brien should have gone in earlier, really.


#81

BOLLOX. :frowning: Not what the doctor ordered.
