Ireland beaten in dead rubber

Just a quickie. Ireland lost to India in their final group game in the World Twenty20 this evening. On a damp evening at Trent Bridge with Niall O’Brien and Trent Johnston missing the gulf between the sides was apparent as Zaheer Khan took 4 wickets and Ireland struggled to 112-8 from their 18 overs. India cruised home by 8 wickets with over 2 overs to spare. The big super eight games start tomorrow with New Zealand Ireland’s opponents, again in Nottingham with the Irish likely to be at full strength.
