    Think Matt Mason @ Worcester has an Irish passport.

    & I'm guessing the Irish ODI cap Andre Botha may not be the full 100% Mick either...

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    I was actually asked over in Sri Lanka by an Irish official whether I could qualify for Ireland...

    He was about 5 generations too late.

    Jack classic .
    Mcnamara is a celtic name tho,could be irish or scottish maybe thats what they thought.
    I know agents looking for talented players with either UK,EU passports or kolpak heritage is big business now for sporting agents.
    I know from the last youth world cup counties have signed gary balance from zimbabwe side under a kolpak agreement at derbyshire,and the south african under 19 sides' wickie has just signed with somerset.
    If you have a brit or Uk passport jack i would milk it seriously,you could end up playing county cricket on a decent wage.And if you make a state side just do what symmo or phil jaques did turn your back on qualifying for england.
    BTW i heard on matt mason he was asked to spend so much time in ireland per year,but thought better of it and decided not to qualify for ireland,altho those rules have now changed.
    I know shaun heaney who now plays for canada doesn't actually spend much time in canada,before this year i don't think he had actually gone to canada.
