Ireland are going to win! Go Guinness!

Ireland 221/9, Bray 115* (carried his bat through - woohoo!)
Zimbabwe 134/5, 30.4 overs

I want Ireland to win, then beat Pakistan, and then advance to the super eights. I think they are the only associates capable of making a second round cut. Onno shob gadhar dol!

Taylor and Matsi. These two were the heros against us where the runrate was over 8 with 10 overs to go. So this partnership is crucial. the runrate is not even 5 at this point.

Ireland have been my 2nd favourite team even before the tournament started. I have been following their cricket since their first ODI, which was against England where they scored 263 batting 2nd.

Ireland have also beaten West Indies and Bangladesh few years back. Unfortunatly those were not ODIs and both West Indies and Bangladesh were fielding their full team at that time

israr
March 16, 2007, 05:14 AM
Yeah, yeah, celebrate Ireland, cause after your matches against WI and PAK, you won't be able to show your faces anymore.

Zim, don't worry, beat PAK and qualify to Super 8.

We have played so many games against Zimbabwe that we have an emotional attachment with them. We want them to win and once they have won, we want to beat them and get the credit :)
Having said that, Ireland played brilliantly and I also support them in their world cup endevours. They should be patronised and played against, so that they too have a chance of becoming an ODI team in the future.
