    Marshall and Joyce selected for India tour

    Ireland: Ed Joyce and Hamish Marshall named in touring party | Ireland Cricket News | Cricinfo.com

    Ireland have got them in the tour party, and are asking for special compensation so they can play in the World Cup.

    They're easily the best of the associates now with those two in the middle order. The fielding will be even better with Marshall in the unit as well. Would you guys like to take his brother?

    Porterfield
    Stirling
    Marshall
    Joyce
    Botha
    KO'Brien
    NO'Brien

    etc etc

    Pretty gun batting order.

    We could easily put Cusack on that list also, he is just back from injury, @Flem, do you think they will be allowed to play in the World Cup?,

    as for his Brother, I heard he's too good for you to let go ,

    and also Marshall holds an Irish Passport, is his Dad/Mom Irish?, just wondering how he got it...

    The way the ICC is going atm I dont think theyll let them play, that could allow for development of cricket outside of the US and China. But also, is Ireland in India's group? This may sway it as the BCCI wouldn't want to increase there risk of losing to a minnow again

    Ireland are progressing faster than Bangladesh over the course of their rise to prominence tbh. Bangladesh are the better side but it's good to see Ireland looking stronger each year.

    Marshall, I don't see why he should get his qualification cut down.

    Yeah, I'm inclined to agree. I hope Marshall gets his qualification cut down anyway just because it'd be interesting, but I don't really think he should.

    Well Joyce should just be let in, the guy was born here and is a huge boost for us, I think he is the first Irish man to reach 10,000 First-class runs,

    and yeah Ireland are in India's group, we play them for our third game...

    If Hamish Marshall ever regains his old form, things could get interesting. Playing for a developing side and being one of the bigger batsmen in it could boost his confidence, which was torn to shreds under Bracewell when he was picked game after game despite being in the form slump of his life.

    He's also been doing some opening in domestic cricket lately, but I think he'll slot in at three. No need to disturb the Porterfield/Stirling partnership atm.

    I think it will be Joyce at three and Marshall at four, then they could leave Joyce at four to help hold the middle order together...

    Fair point. They're probably interchangeable, though Joyce could also open if really needed as well due to injuries or something.

    I liked the cut of his jib back in the 2007 Commonwealth Bank Series.

    Cut of his jib?,

    Ireland v New Zealand at Nagpur on February 12th should be a good game...

    Means he looked reliable.

    Heh, two sides that suck in the subcontinent going at it. The spinners should dominate that game.

    If Hamish Marshall scores a match winning century the reaction down here would be priceless.

    We will win though.

    Didn't someone say that about the Bangladesh series?
