    Intercontinental Cup 2011-2013

    A bit of a late start but hopefully the Moderators will smile kindly to some of the older threads on this weekend's matches (Ireland v. Kenya, Scotland v. U.A.E) being merged into this one.

    Pretty important couple of matches coming up. In both matches both sides are more than capable of beating their opponents. Even at this early stage, I feel if Scotland and Kenya lose both of them will be out of contention for the title, especially Scotland who failed to beat Namibia who I think along with Canada will struggle to win many matches.

    Ireland all out for 75! I hope Kenya's batting show up.

    Haven't shown up yet. England-esque capitulations again spin.

    I can't believe Kenya didn't just open the bowling with two spinners in the second innings. We've just seen 19/111 fall to spin on the first day and they want to have a go with Odhiambo. If they don't at least open with spin from the other hand it will be a huge WTF moment.

    Varaiya bowling from the other end. Sanity prevails. Wonder how many free runs they'll take before bringing Ngoche on from Odhiambo's end.

    Odhiambo 3-0-23-0. Now, perhaps?

    Stating the obvious but a lot rests on what these two can do. Ireland don't have any other left-handed batsmen of note and Kenya's two spinners are left-armers, so these two should find it a lot easier than the rest.

    Well Porterfield's gone for a duck, so there goes that.

    FTR though, Mooney is a left hand bat. May be down to come in at 8 and may have got out for a duck in the first innings but he's every inch as good a batsman as Cusack and I think he's probably better than White who bats 5.

    Too much conservatism perhaps. Anyway, its amazing Varaiya didnt feature in Kenya's World cup squad last year.

    I thought they'd go with James rather than Shem Ngoche for that same reason.

    I feel this game proves that Ireland are not as close to being ready for Test match cricket as a lot of people seem to think.
