Ireland crash to heavy defeat

Harsh lessons continue for Ireland’s cricketers as Nottinghamshire gave the boys a bit of a pasting at Trent Bridge today. Having conceded 346 (a Notts record; the unfortunate Keith Kevin O’Brien responsible for 52 in just 4 overs) Ireland were never in the hunt and ended up losing by 134 runs. Ireland prop up the group A table but must try and recover quickly as they take on a winless Leicestershire side at Grace Road in the morning (text commentary here).
