Here we go again…

Believe it or not it’s ICC Intercontinental Cup time again! Ireland’s cricketers must prove themselves against the best of the rest starting with Kenya at Eglinton this morning. No Rankin, Porterfield or Niall O’Brien (on county duty or injured) available so Gary Wilson keeps wicket plus a new cap for paceman Andrew Britton of Fox Lodge. Hero of Trent Bridge Keith O’Brien is available (cheers Notts) along with returnees Bray, Johnston, White et al. Ireland are the the three time reigning champions of the most taxing form of the game below Test level. Belfast PE Teacher and record Ireland cap holder Kyle McCallen captains the side as the boys in green endeavour to keep their title and reputation as the only side capable of challenging the big boys in the purest form of the game.
