Ireland win Intercontinental Cup

That’s the Ireland Cricket team, who qualified for the ICC Intercontinental Cup tournament, held in Namibia, for the first time this year. The ICC Intercontinental Cup is contested by the top non-Test status countries and the Ireland team secured victory on Saturday, beating Kenya by 6 wickets in the three-day final. However, as this BBC report indicates, the success, and potential elevation to Test status, presents a dilemma for some of the players involved.
