there's stuff i wanna watch on my sky+ before I go to bed and this doesn't help
Shame for both teams
120 was all Ireland could've hoped for and "maybe" Eng didnt deserve to be in sudden death after knocking up 191 yesterday
Regardless of how you view nationality, it's tough to believe that only 2/6 of the best batsmen in the country weren't actually born here is a coincidence.
They may not have learnt their cricket overseas (though some have), but I believe they learnt their attitude towards competition and the game. That's more what I think is wrong with England producing their own batsmen.

Lumb sounds a yarp, tbf.
Ironically, given his name and being an ex SAU19 player, Kieswetter probably has the least saffie inflection to his accent of our converts.
I personally think we're obliged to pick our best players, regardless of birthplace or upbringing. System needs overhauling from the bottom up until we produce more quality natives.

Do we have a lot more Saffas coming through at the moment? I kind of assume that these things come and go and so numbers in the side will change soon enough.
Well, the better young batsmen coming through are probably Taylor, Vince, Denly, Northeast and in OD cricket arguably Hales (possibly forgetting someone obvious; Hamilton-Brown appears to have something about him too). Don't think any of those lads are South African. Think it's just a phase that will pass tbh.

Vaughan's saying shorter matches favour Ireland. Don't know if that's entirely true in the case of this particular team. Their players aren't generally capable of humming along at 10 an over for the last five the way we're accustomed to seeing test sides go.
