Yep. TBH given that we've been shafted and now Ireland are about to be, the only fair thing to do is kick West indies out instead
Yeah Ireland v unlucky here, they had a real chance of getting 121 (my money was on England tbf) but going out like this stinks.
Guyana in the ****ing rainy season. It's a ****ing joke.
Unlucky Ireland we didn't deserve it.
This tournament is looking a tad farcical now.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
And no spare days for rain. I mean, whod've thunk it might rain in this part of the world in the wet season?
Rubbish when it rains, but a bit of good luck for us there. No more matches in Guyana now which is good.
Massive bullet successfully avoided
Think we would have defended the score if given the full 20, but it's pretty disappointing not to get a conclusive result. Sad for Ireland, but glad we scraped through.

I've only seen Ant Botha bowl twice: once today and once in that game v Pakistan. I really enjoy watching him bowl: cheeky little nagging inswingers that seem just about impossible to get away. I can imagine him still wheeling those out to good effect in club cricket till he's about 90.

Once you've played for a Full Member, you can't switch countries for 4 years.
What I don't like is that the likes of Morgan and Joyce are ineligible for their country of origin. There's nothing wrong with a player from an associate wanting to play at a higher level, but it's wrong that they then have to requalify for their original side.
