    It's not like Morgan came into the setup as the complete article. I really don't see the problem with an associate player wanting to develop and further his career as much as possible. I actually really hope he won't be the last. I know it's a loss for Irish cricket, but it's probably also a gain in terms of youngsters, it gives the very best young Irish players a definite career path that may well keep them in the game.

    The guy on the radio, can't remember whether it was Garraway or the Irish guy, during the interval, was mentioning they have central contracts now in Ireland (Stirling is on one), so that can only be good in terms of retaining their players.

    Annual ICC sanctioned 4 day games against England & the touring sides would be nice imo.

    Yeah, I think these matches should've been scheduled for Antigua, and Antigua's ODIs and 20/20s agaisnt the Saffers could've been shifted to Guyana instead....

    To paraphrase Colly, nine times out of ten 120 would lose you a game.

    FC entity in Dub or Belfast, IMHO. Cheerio Northants.

    Nah, get rid of Durham. Last in, first out and all that, and nobody would be too upset.

    There are plans to set up an inter-European first-class league I believe.

    What I want to know is why there was a police car parked at cover.

    Nice try... it all depends on the conditions and the opposition and with the greatest of respect to Ireland, I think England were favourites to defend 120 on that pitch. I'd love Ireland to have had the chance to chase them, though.

    Agree with that, they can become an international side if they want, will stop Scaly moaning about them not getting picked for England.

    Perhaps the Durham players should just lower their sights and seek selection for their home country, Scotland

    What's the point when England steal all our gun players, like Craig Kieswetter?
