    Siggins is a big mate of Trent Johnston - they co-wrote a book about the 07 WC - he was a **** then and has clearly not improved

    Makes you wonder why Cricinfo published it. I don't think I've ever read a more vitriolic piece on any cricket site.. I've not heard of the writer, but I would say that cricket is just the excuse here to vent a lot of anti-English feelings.

    meh cricinfo is becoming more tabloidy by the day. Anything to increase talk/discussion regardless of the quality.


    There are probably some fair complaints to be made from Irish cricket but as you say shoggz this guy comes off as an English hater; not that we're short of those.

    I've tended to stop reading most of the articles, it's just very sad they've gone this way.

    Anyway on this issue, simple let's not play there at all, won't do us any harm, and then they won't be sullied by our presence

    The ideal solution IMO is to play a quadrangular ODI tournament featuring England, the two touring sides and Ireland/Scotland/Netherlands on a yearly rotation. Each team plays each other twice, so that's 6 games each, England play one home and one away vs the associate so each country gets to host 5 home games plus 1 neutral game.

    Would be far more interesting that 2 5-match bilateral series and frees up the calendar.

    Should be a good match this, with Ireland 'A' being the favourites here over Ireland..

    We should walk this. Even with our reserves playing.

    Only debate I see is who opens with Carberry, will more than likely be James Taylor which means the only query I would have is Luke Wright or Stokes at 6?

    Carberry, Taylor/Wright, Bopara, Morgan, Ballance, Wright/Stokes, Buttler, Tredwell, Overton, Rankin, Finn

    We should have walked every game we've played against Ireland but it doesn't really work like that does it.

    I would imagine it's probably more likely Jordan plays instead of Overton. Not sure both Ballance and Taylor will play but again who knows.

    Not looking forward to our bowling during this and the australia series.

    Overton and Jordan both like a no-ball. Stokes can also mix up some rubbish


    Just as long as Porterfield doesn't score runs today I'll be reasonably happy. Decent enough fellow but average batsman.

    Sounds like Ballance, Carberry and Rankin debut so no Jordan or Overton

    Guess good batting depth. Lack of genuine bowling options. Gotta get 20 overs out of Stokes, Bopara, Wright and Carberry.

    Did Morgan say who was opening the batting? Missed the interview and listening to TMS talking about Irish Cricket now.

    Some places are saying Taylor opening and Bopara at 3?
