Cricket Ireland Inter-Provincial Championship

Postby The Professor » Thu Aug 01, 2019 11:25 pm

Turning into a bit of a charade this year.

Firstly there are just three clubs ....which means there isn't just six fixtures.

The first was in May, the second in July and the third finished today. They are three day matches and all of the, have turned into a draw.

And still despite this....the bastards nearly beat us.

Honourable mention for Simi Singh who got 100* off 124 balls and then a fivefer for Norther Knight today though.

The farce continues.....

Game five.....one day left....still in the first innings...will definitely be another draw.

Waste of everyone's life.

William Porterfield (95* overnight) gave up on Warwickshire for this crock.

Any rewards of implementing a First Class system won't be properly realised after 10 years when the next generation of players come through. Perhaps the short to medium term lies in competitive school age cricket, then scholarships that lead to playing at Academy level and touring with the Ireland U19 team.

It's a bit like Bangladesh when they first started out as a test nation, from being whipping boys to serious opposition.
