Ireland cricket team through to Super 8s March 26, 2007

Posted by Rambling Man in Sports.

And so the Ireland cricket team’s brilliant performances have earned them a spot in the Super 8 stage of the Cricket World Cup. Fair bowls to them !

So what does this mean to the average cricket ignoramus ? Well, it means that Ireland are now in a round-robin series of games with the best cricketing nations in the world … and they deserve to be there !

Our next 6 games are against England (Fri Mar 30th), South Africa (Tues Apr 3rd), New Zealand (Mon Apr 9th), Australia (Fri Apr 13th), Bangladesh (Sun Apr 15th) and Sri Lanka (Wed Apr 18th). The big boys !

Just how big ? Think Longford Town vs AC Milan … or Kilmore Harriers Junior Bs vs Kilkenny hurlers !

Let’s hope the lads on the Irish squad can learn as much as possible from the experience and maybe even win a game or two ! It’ll be interesting this Friday when Ireland play England and Ed Joyce – who recently left Ireland and declared for England – should open the batting for them … against his old team !
