Ireland where at their peak between 09-15. They have regressed in the last few years. That's a big issue because we may find out that they keep losing like us and not show any potential what so ever.

Do they have quality players in the ranks?

Not very noteworthy . Afghanistan senior team is currently better than Ireland and also on junior level it's much better than Ireland at talent pool.

Quote:
For all the success Ireland have had at the senior level since that seminal World Cup win over Pakistan in 2007, the lack of youth talent coming through in the decade since has been lamentable. A brief spurt was evident in the initial five years of that period. The 2009 junior team, captained by Balbirnie, that won the ICC Under-19 World Cup Qualifier in Toronto and lost the Plate Final to Bangladesh at the 2010 U-19 World Cup in New Zealand, also featured Stirling, Dockrell, Young, Thompson and Stuart Poynter. Chase, McCarthy and McBrine came through the 2012 U-19 World Cup team, captained by Dockrell. But upstarts like James Shannon, Tyrone Kane and Graeme McCarter have been briefly tried and discarded.

In the last five years, Ireland's juniors have been soundly outperformed in Europe by Scotland. They failed to qualify for the 2014 U-19 World Cup and only appeared in the 2016 edition because Australia refused to send a team to Bangladesh. In that small group of junior players who have progressed to the senior team, Stirling is the only genuine match-winner, while Dockrell's one-time mesmerising spin powers have waned so precipitously that he was cut loose by his county, Somerset, in 2015.

In contrast, Afghanistan's development system is thriving. Their junior sides have qualified for every U-19 World Cup since 2010. After finishing in last place in New Zealand that year, they made it to the Plate Final in 2012, finished in the top half of their group to reach the knockout stage in 2014, and won the Plate Championship in 2016.

Just goes to show if you don't have any interest in junior level then you will struggle at the highest level.

Can't blame them much because in Ireland there are so many other sports already established rugby football hockey and cricket doesn't cut it

Ireland's future will be in poaching Saffers, Kiwis, Aussies and Zimbabweans who cant make it in those countries. (Zims may leave for better opps).

Congrats to Ireland and Afghanistan for getting their test statuses. So happy for them and our very own Donal from bc. Wish them all the best on their new journey as a test playing nation.

It would be hard for them to get it played in their country...but Zimbabwe it will be.

But that neutral venue in India, they would stand a good chance of winning, because of the familiarity of that ground.
