It's a mixed bag as obviously tv coverage is great, but Cricketeurope has been the number one place for everything to do with Irish cricket for years and it really does not sit well with me seeing them getting blocked like this.

Great spell from Kev Ireland to edge it I'd say

I thought we had it after the 8th went down, but 2 big sixes there in the last few balls

Thats dreadful stuff, Did so well to get them 100/8, then they blow it in an over.

Our batting has not been up to par so far this competition. Still a point clear at the top but now we're in a situation where a rained off game leaves us relying on NRR assuming one of the many sides on 3 points wins their last 2 games

Scratch that, PNG have played a game less. Wow this is a disaster.

PNG win their remaining games they top the group no matter what our results are.

And now in group B Oman have thrashed Afghanistan by 40 runs.

Now if they win their last 3 games they top the group.Likely one of Netherlands/Scotland could miss out!

PNG play Nepal,Namibia and USA in their last 3 games. Nepal are, as we saw yesterday, no great shakes. Namibia are useful (only likely team to beat PNG IMO) and the USA are poor.

So we're hoping for rain in one of PNG's games in other words, while avoiding rain in our games

Oman prepared for the tournament by basing themselves in Cork for a fortnight and playing T20 games against various Cork/Munster selections. Fair dues to them - it's looking as though this was an excellent idea.

Awful result on so many levels. We need PNG to lose or have a rained game whilst we win everything else.

There can be no excuses not to finish top of this group.
