Why oh why? The million dollar question. Why only us? If we win just some ODIs, we can shut the critics up for sure, people won't complaint much about not winning a test for a while.
Unlike the Irish, we don't have cricket in our blood........come to think of it, I don't think we have anything but corruption in our blood, otherwise how can we not even be the champion in our national sport "Kabadi or Hadudu", I don't get it.

SS seems to me the most pessimistic guy in this universe…. I would suggest you to learn cricket first, then make such provocative comment. Please stop wasting our time.

Default if Irish being one of ICC can score 295 runs...u tell me

u blaming me KB...I know i don know good cricket like test players...but can't u see the scoreboard....look at them how they played...
our BD players after drawing got that ego and just let that go...we betta bring them infront of the match preview of this ireland and WI game. They are all lazy irresponsible players who play just for them but not for country...u telling Irish got the cricket blood i don think so...i guess our youngerster like Rajin, Rana, and 3/4 of the team started playing cricket before teen years....what you will explain abut that.

BD players play in domestic cricket among themselves when they are not playing international cricket. Playing among themselves clearly does not offer them enough preparation to face the best. Hence they should go and play abroad in off season. For example, they can play league cricket in England. Even players from other test countries play there. This exposure will be of much greater help to them than playing among themselves. I am sure the players of Ireland had the experience of playing in the english league.

I am not suggesting playing in India against a Ranji Trophy team because a lot of participants seem to have ego problems in that. But that is what Sri Lanka used to do in the past. They used to play against TamilNadu Ranji trophy team for the annual M.G.Gopalan trophy.Of course that was till they got their test status.

Where they play is immaterial. But they must play against better opposition than the one they face in domestic cricket.

if it is not full strength, its quite so. what difference would sarwan made? from 293 to 313? adding another 20 runs? well, they had few overs to expire and 6 wicket on hand. we've to accept it, they did really good.

For your information. Sarwan scored 260 against BD test.

Beside Bowler missing

Tino Best
Collins
Edwards
Sarwan
Banks

Only Gyle played. There is no way on earth this WI team is full strength. Plz read before you post. You can compare the player yourself in crickinfo.

BTW this is not name calling

This may sound very strange! but it is soooo true..! We are better at playing tests than ODIs..!!!...I'm sure we can beat the life outta Ireland in tests..(They are not even good enough to play against us!)..But not so sure about ODIs though.

Default Few thoughts about Irish Cricket & the match against the WIndians

1. For the WIndians few key bowlers were missing. But do consider Ian Bradshaw as one of the key bowers in ODI's. He played all the 3 matches against BD and gonna play the whole Natwest series and the Champions Trophy. He's considered as a specialist ODI srtike bowler. In some quarters Ravi Rampaul is also rated as high as Tino Best! ( I'm talking about ODI's only)

From Irish perspective they were also missing their brightest sons. Middlesex's Ed Joyce is the most famous, also paceman Adrian McCoubrey is now with Essex.

2. As for BD playing away in Ireland at this time of the year ( or most of the year except August?) goes, I will not be too sure about the outcome of the match. The conditions will be dark and dismal with a cold wind like a stepmother's breath sending shivers through to the downcast fielders. In those very overcast conditions to fend and stroke a white orb flashing up to BD batsmen at around 90 miles per hour would not inspire me at all.
