Ireland should lose from here, but its been a sterling effort second up to make a match of it.

A Shame ireland could not keep going a bit longer. But they have batted for 129 overs. Well played.

Shows in these conditions that teams touring England could have a great warm up before the series playing Ireland. Got to be better than some country b team

Ireland follow on and win. That's not going to look suspicious is it.

Have to say I'm disappointed watching this seeing Ireland doing so well

Disappointed this didn't happen 5 years ago when all these Irish players were better players than they are now

They could have played loads of tests against the likes of Zimbabwe, Bangladesh sri lanka and the West Indies and given them all good games at home if not beaten them regularly

The whole idea of test status is ridiculous to me anyway

There should be a promotion relegation system, after every cycle of fixtures the bottom side in tier 1 plays the top side in tier 2 for the final place in division 1 of test cricket

This would give the younger nations something to strive towards and surely therefore help to grow the game

Aside from a near run out, seems things are quietening down. No serious spinner in the Ireland side.

Surely not. Could it?

No side has won on test debut since Australia in 1877 (when both Australia and England debuted, so one was probably going to win...)

Different conversation, but it always seems a bit bizarre that test match cricket starts at that point in 1877. It seems teams had played each other for decades, and that game was not at the time considered worthy of being something higher. Seems after the fact, a few years after, they designated it a test.... arguable whether or not it should still be considered thus.

Arthur Crabtree wrote: Timeless Test.


Timeless tests seem to be very poorly documented. Some argue that most tests were timeless (although uncovered pitches lead to not many going into 5th days) up to the second world war, others seem to indicate they do not occur until the Bradman years. There isnt much historical evidence to back up the fact that the early decades were actually timeless, in fact the first tests I believe were literally 3-4 hour days starting in after lunch time and ending in the early evening.

I have seen, and I am hastened to believe this because bat averages in this era are abnormally high, that timeless tests only really occured in the decade before the second world war.

Might go into why Bradman was able to smash so many massive scores.

On the question of a united Ireland isn't the rugby team an all island side? If they can continue can't the cricket side?

That said a post Brexit county season could pose challenges. But at this rate the UK is going to stay in the EU until at least 2021 when you read between the lines of what Theresa may says.
