Yeah, so?

BTW, our first WC was even before we received test status, in which we won 2 matches (one against a big team).

I agree 2003 was a bad one, but every team has it now and then.

In 2007, we beat two big teams.

2011 is yet to be complete.

The thing is Ireland hardly gets to play international cricket against the top teams, so they become ultra-motivated in the WCs. But I know that's not an excuse for us to be poor.

But one thing is just coz Ireland's recent WC results are better than ours, doesn't mean they deserve to be here and we don't.

At least we beat Ireland - forget improvement speed - something even England can't do.
