bad decision? dravid doesn't want to make the same mistake he did against bd in WC 2007. never underestimate your opponent thinking you're gonna pile up a massive total against a lesser team, only to find yourself in heaps of trouble. i think dravid made the right choice. good captaincy.

that depends on lot of factors, in my view. team you are facing, weather condition, type of wicket and so on. for the superior team, well on paper that is, bowling first means attacking your opponent with your first line defense using all the fire power you have to restrict your opponent to a reasonable total for you to chase it and win the match easily and comfortably.

dravid doesn't want to experience another nightmare. what i see positive about his decision is that he is not taking IRL lightly.

Ireland are playing sensibly, especially Porterfield who has faced very good wicket taking deliveries. Since the ground is moist it will be tough for the first 12 overs but if no other wickets fall they should persist and strike later. India will panic if no other wickets fall.

Ireland does not have Rankin. It will be interesting to see how Irish bowlers trouble the emphatic Indian line-up later part of the day.

Ireland 94 for 5 after 30 overs, not bad at all. Chawla on song with 5-1-19-2 with an economy under 4. This aggressive little lad with his efforless googlies in this wicket simply rocks. Indians have gold here. RP Singh's mild variation on the old hairdo still leaves a lot to be desired. He's bowling well. UV has put on a few pounds, or maybe just looks a bit bloated for the day. He's fielding superbly.

Ireland 111 for 6 after 35.3 overs, and not looking good anymore. Chawla got another with a flighted googlie. Dinesh Karthik's been impressive behind the stumps.

Without Big Boyd on the field, Indians should wrap this up with at least 15 overs to spare. With Boyd, it would have been 10.

What was so unsuitable about it?? If ireland can bat for 50 overs and score 193 there is nothing wrong with pitch. Last yr it produced nearly 600 runs between Eng / Ire. So its a very good batting track.Now since Ind will bat 2nd, D/L will apply and probably they need to chase 160 from 35 overs unless target is again revised . so see who is foolish here.

I did not say always but I said "batting first is a sign of positiveness"..and today was one such day they should have batted first.if ire score a good score and ind have to chase, we know how poor they are chasing in alien conditions. remember bd-saf match where saf faltered so badly to cope with the pressure when bd put up a fighting total.

The Irish captain is doing well. With close-in fielders, he has got the keeper standing up to medium pacers with some good field placement. Making sure that the batsmen dont get to many easy runs and tempting them to take maximum risk.

Johnston laments lack of cricket

Andrew McGlashan
June 24, 2007

Trent Johnston (right) wishes he was on a level playing field with that of his contemporaries © Getty Images

The heady days of the World Cup are suddenly feeling a long time ago for Trent Johnston and the Ireland team. Their first one-day international since they ended the Super Eights adventure finished in a nine-wicket defeat against India at Stormont.

Ireland's cause wasn't helped by a long list of key players missing for various reasons. Of their World Cup stars, Eoin Morgan, Jeremy Bray, Boyd Rankin, David Langford-Smith and Andre Botha weren't available against India along with the Mooney brothers. Rankin, Langford-Smith and Botha are injured but Morgan has opted to secure a first-team place with Middlesex and Bray asked not to be considered for the matches.

Since returning from the Caribbean there has been plenty of positive talk about turning Irish cricket at least semi-professional but, as Craig Wright warned about Scottish cricket, already that dream is looking a long way off. However, Johnston says it's a route the game must take if the World Cup isn't going to be a one-off.

"It's difficult," admitted Johnston. "We don't even have a first-class structure here. We basically come from club cricket to playing the best cricketers in the world.

"We've got to have professional contracts put in place so players can get back to the standard we set in the West Indies. Four months we were away playing cricket and you could see in our performance over there we were a much better team.

"We are amateur cricketers. We get together for two or three hours a week as a squad and train. I think you can see from our performances in the World Cup when we were 24/7 cricket, we were a different side. There's a lot more pressures when you are back here, you've got kids, you've got families."

Except for their Intercontinental Cup victory against a weak Canadian side, Ireland's form since the World Cup has been poor and they didn't manage a single victory in the Friends Provident Trophy.

"We've struggled this year against county teams so when you come and play against a team like India, with the quality they have, we are always going to struggle because we're not together, we're not a professional outfit.

"We are in a rebuilding process. Our two opening bowlers [Whelan and Fourie], have probably played three or four games in total between them for Ireland. To open the bowling against [Sourav] Ganguly and [Sachin] Tendulkar is a huge step up.

"But, at the end of the day, they knew how to bowl at the top of off stump to get here so why can't they do it in the middle? That's the disappointing thing, because I know they can do it. But I don't want to be critical of our bowlers because they are young and inexperienced."

However, Johnston refused to be too disheartened and preferred to look towards the future. "We get together for three hours for a week and it's impossible to compete against these guys. We've just got to learn to be more consistent.

"We've got good young cricketers coming through and we've got to come back tomorrow [Sunday] and put in a good performance against South Africa."
