On the day that the ECB decided to abolish the domestic 50-over competition, England are surely on the fast track to suffer humiliation at the hands of Ireland, a team who will surely get test status in 5 years!
England have only mustered 203/9 in their 50 overs, the Aussie Trent Johnston having picked up 3/25 in 10. Yep, that wasn’t a typo, he’s an Aussie. Played first-class cricket with the likes of Brett Lee and Mark Taylor.
I’m giving Ireland a 70% chance of beating England!
BTW, is the red jersey that England is wearing a badly timed prank? They look to be playing like the only other red team, Canada! :O
