Shows how deep the pool of players is for Ireland to select from when the lad batting with O'Brien now has played just 1 professional List A game before today, and that was for Ireland A.

Thought Ireland did well to post 172 from that terrible start but was never going to be enough although good to see the England top order trying to make a game of it. Good bowling performance from Willey and good knock from Billings

Awful standard of cricket from start to finish, very few emerged with much credit, Willey with ball (albeit figures flattered him) and Billings played well with the bat

Cant wait to see them play on the same strip which has already died in a few days :(

Campher looks a handy player. Could easily be batting 3 in this line up. Not bad for a lad who’d played just 1 professional List A game before the first ODi.

Campher's basically a one man team :LOL: Not good from Vince or Banton though, perfect time to ease your way to a score with Bairstow smashing it at the other end. Would have expected one of them to cash in.

Loving the story Devon tells about Viv, on the 90 tour, He'd gotten Viv out a couple of times and papers wrote he had the formular to get the master blaster out. Viv walks to the crease, says " showtime " to Devon and takes him for 30 odd in one over i think it was.
show how good viv was, Devon was 90's and he hooked him for a couple of sixes.... no helmet:p

Hard not to think thats the last we should see of Vince in an England shirt, a couple hours of Banton here would be ideal :)
A shame as he is so aesthetically pleasing but he is falling to the same shot and at international level they will be all over that. Competition in the one day team is to tough to continue failing over and over.

constant lack of big scores sadly as you say, must be a long way down the pecking order now, just below Denly and just above Hales lol

Love watching Morgan in this sort of mood, hits the ball so sweetly. Hope Banton goes on and gets a score as well.

Bit gutted Roy didn't get a score in the series, already has people writing him off on Twitter. It's a fickle game.
