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.

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).
