    Rain stopped play??? Nooooo! (WI vs Ireland)

    At 217/3, chasing 292, Ireland had a REAL chance of winning this one, with 16 overs left to make 75.

    Unfortunately, while it would be sad to see the West Indians sink to even lower depths, it would have been very exciting to see Ireland pull of such a victory.

    Don't know what will happen now - the cricinfo scoreboard only updates every 20 minutes or so, and doesn't have any commentary...

    We had Ponting the other day critising non-competitive nations competing in the ICC trophy. Well Mr. Ponting, are Ireland a non-competitive nation? If so, does that mean so are the West Indies? Should the West Indies be banned from this competition too?

    Ponting should keep his trap shut....this same WI team scored a WR against them last year. I'd love to see where australia will be in 2-3 years when most of their guard is retired.....England and SA have much more staying power than australia right now.

    Well, it looks as though the NatWest ought to be between England, Ireland and Derbyshire.

    Don't be ridiculous. Upsets have occured many times before and it's hardly an upset in a warmup games. The result is generally meaningless and the point is really to get the players 'warmed up'.

    Meaningless games, especially when the win is against an under-strength West Indies bowling attack. That said, I fear the bowling will be similar for the Natwest series - ie 3 specialists.

    Jermaine Lawson is less than a shadow of what he was last year.
    Ravi Rampaul.... well no explanation for that. Horrible bowling is all I could see from his figures.

    Great to see Bravo get some runs though. That young man is something special.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Oh, and in response to Liam's post, it's happened before and it'll happen again. Already mentioned the Aussies against Derbyshire a few years ago.

    Ireland, Holland and the like are banana skins waiting to happen, but it's bums on seats and time in the middle - definitely not to be taken that seriously.

    Ponting never commented on the West Indies. He never even commented on Ireland, therefore I don't see the basis of hostility. He was commenting on 'minnow' teams in general.

    MUST restrain myself.... Oh god, I'm going to hell.

    And YES, Ireland won! Will Lara survive this? Either way, I think he might get Ponting'd.
