    Is it possible to get mod powers over just this thread? I thought I'd be able to carry on updating the OP but apparently not.

    Summer set to commence at Dublin

    Ireland Invitational XI vs England XI
    Castle Avenue, Dublin
    12th-16th June


    England's Ashes preparation gets off to a tricky start of the Irish Sea tomorrow, as the squad faces off an Ireland team with no mind to be written off. Joining the hosts are a crop of young guest players, batsmen Teja and Jansen, allrounders Mork, Phlegm and Dong, and wicketkeeper-batsman Dharan.

    While each step at this stage is no doubt done with one eye on the urn, England will have considered enough time has been had going over plans in the training camp - it's time to get some wins on the board.

    The formidable England pace attack will be chomping at the bit to get at what looks like a short batting order for the hosts, especially on a fresh Dublin wicket. But talented allrounders Sticky Phlegm and Daemon Dong will fancy their chances of springing an upset on the English.

    Misinfo Predicts: England by 8 wickets

    Expected XIs:

    England: Fertang, Pickup, Moody, Wood, Robertson, Ardley, Deen, Smithington-Smythe, Myheart, Furball, Force
    Ireland Invitational XI: Porterfield, Mork, Teja, Jansen, Joyce, Dharan, Phlegm, Dong, Johnston, Murtagh, Dockrell

    Day One

    Ireland Invitational XI: Porterfield, Mork, Phlegm, Teja, Jansen, Joyce, Dharan, Dong, Johnston, Murtagh, Dockrell
    England XI: Fertang, Pickup, Moody, Wood, Robertson, Ardley, Deen, Smythington-Smythe, Myheart, Furball, Force


    Under overcast skies, the hosts won the toss and chose to put England in to bat. Fertang and Pickup began in typically cautious fashion, adding 30 runs in the first hour, before Dong got the breakthrough by having Pickup caught at slip for 8. Fertang progressed to 32 against the pacemen, before he was out against Dockrell in the offspinner's first over. Lunch came with England on an uncomfortable 67/2.


    Wood and Moody took a more aggressive approach after the break, adding 55 more to the total in an hour, but Dong and Dockrell would keep the visitors in check again. The former had Moody caught behind for 36, before Dockrell fetched Wood out for 32 without the fourth wicket stand adding a single run. Robertson struggled to adapt to what was remaining an intense bowling performance, and having made 19 skied a short Murtagh delivery to fine leg. England were in some trouble at 169/5.


    Marcuss Deen came out with a determination to seize the initiative, and after tea struck Sticky Phlegm for three boundaries in one over. Ardley had only managed 27 by the time he became Murtagh's second victim after tea, but by then Deen had already raised the visitor's 200, on a personal 28 from 17 balls. With support from Smythington-Smythe at the other end, Deen raised the first fifty of the day at a run a ball.


    Hakon Mork was given an oppertunity to display his medium pace before the new ball, and the move paid off as Smythington-Smythe fell for 20, leaving the tail exposed to the new ball on 261/7. However, England's and particularly Deen's approach late in the day saw them begin to take the match away. First the visitors gained some fortune from Myheart's two edges through third man for four, and while he was out for a brief 15, Deen kept up the attack to raise England's 300. Furball carried on with him, playing a shot a ball and running hard for his unbeaten 23, while the allrounder reached stumps on a defining 87* from 95 balls, with the score reading 321/8.
