Ireland hopes rest on sunny weather..

Our roving, occasional, cricket correspondent, esmereldavillalobos, has been keeping an eye on Ireland’s performance in the Triangular Series in Nairobi [So that you don’t have to? – Ed].

“Both Ireland’s games [this week] in the tri-series were abandoned without a ball being bowled due to nasty weather and a sodden outfield in Nairobi. Bottom line is now this: if there is no result in the match between Kenya and Zimbabwe tomorrow (abandoned/tie), Ireland are out due to an inferior net-run rate (don’t ask!); if there is a result, Ireland make the final against the winners of that match. With the weather forecast for tomorrow mixed it looks like the team will be dropping a few ranking points.
