    Perhaps they have to decide between whom to back for the rest of the World Cup. Anderson or Shazhad. Somehow considering the type of bowling conditions on offer, I reckon Shazhad might be a better bet.

    Scorecard

    Ireland had a decent chance, certainly, but "cruising to a win" is a massive overstatement.
    Well 3.3 overs , still I think we would have got the runs that match had the rain not interfered but we will never know, people will expect England to win but if they don't turn up or if they give Ireland a chance, I expect us to take it...

    Cricinfo's preview pointed out the surprising number of names left from the last world cup match these sides played.

    Bell, KP, Colly, Bopara, Anderson, Porterfield, both O'Briens, White, Johnston, Botha and Rankin.

    More entertainingly, Morgan was playing for Ireland and Joyce was playing for England.

    Cant underestimate the Irish but I guess England will have this easy.
    I would like to watch bowlers dominate batsmen like a dog would a tail-wagging contest against a rabbit. Which means I spend most of my days fuming and cursing the game. The Newlands Test between South Africa and Australia has vindicated my belief that batsmen are a bunch of weak-minded, inept fools only good for waving about sponsor logos.

    An unimpressive win for us is my guess. We'll stumble to 260-270 and Ireland will fall just short.

    Dockrell is so dismissing KP tho.

    As has been said already, some decent players in this Irish line-up, but naturally I'd be very disappointed if we don't register our second win of the tournament tomorrow.

    Ed Joyce will obviously feel as though he has a point to prove, and players such as Rankin, Porterfield and Dockrell may wish to give the English selectors a nudge in terms of doing a Morgan in the future.

    With respect to Porterfield, I seriously doubt he has much chance of playing for England.

    Dockrell, on the other hand, certainly does. He'd likely to be ahead of Danny Briggs for selection purposes, and Briggs has toured with the Lions and performance squads for some time now.

    Of course, this is all besides the point if neither of them want to play for England.

    Yes I agree it's unlikely he'll get to play for England, but I'm sure he'll have ambitions to, or at least put himself in the frame. I don't intend to make out no-one wants to play for Ireland, just that playing for England obviously opens up the opportunity of Test cricket.

    If Ireland can get anything out of Rankin, I'll give them a good chance. Even if he doesn't perform, It'll still be a tough match for England.

    Surely this has to be the Last Chance for Colly and Anderson right?

    Closed poll is closed. Would've gone for Ireland, obviously.

    I think that should be open again now.
