When total pie chuckers like Botha don't get murdered the pitch simply isn't fit for cricket.

Feck. Eoin goes. 115/7 with three to come. Take 120 if offered, tbh.

Well, on the bright side if you look at the T20 batting averages of Ireland there doesn't appear to be much strength there. Let's just hope we bowl well and make them earn it.
Morgan goes, but it was a fine knock given the conditions and the tripe served up by the rest of the line-up. Just hope it stays dry, as that's our best chance of getting a win here.

There should be ICC imposed cool off period wherein no player should be allowed to represent another country within 3 years of last representing his own nation.
Well I'm not watching but if the pitch is as dire as it sounds 6 an over will be a stiffish task for Ireland. I know we batted atrocioulsy but quite frankly our bowlers are better than theirs.
Well they wouldn't be, because what they've already scored in the original chase counts.
And if you still don't believe, I don't care. Go and fiddle around with the online calculator and you'll see that the score counts.
