“Stranger things have happened…”

Another day, another Super 8 game in Ireland’s Cricket World Cup adventure. Today they face an Australian side who have proven ruthlessly efficient in the competition so far.. I wonder if they’re superstitious at all.. The Irish captain gives his thoughts here. Your choices for coverage for the 2.30pm start include, as usual, over by over, scorecard, or live commentary. Adds Australia win the toss and will bowl first. How many overs do you reckon we’ll withstand? Ireland all out for 91 from 30 overs. As I said, ruthlessly efficient. Quality bowling on a wicket that favoured rewarded the Australian pace-men. Rankin might like it, but the other Irish bowlers won’t. Australia win 92-1 from 12.2 overs. Ouch. Ouch. Ouch.
