Do they really have enough player specialists for all formats?

Not to the extent that the top countries have but it's an improvement on a few years ago.

The Wolves beat Zimbabwe yesterday for their second win over a full international team this summer. The senior team need to get their shit together in this series

That sure would make the seniors behave with a “perform or perish” pressure. It’s always good to have bench strength.

Couldn't kick on in the second half of the innings and finished on 242. About 30 too short I reckon.

Maiden ODI 50s for McCollum and Tucker.

Went down to the last over (usually does when we play Zimbabwe) but Ireland won by 5 runs to clinch the series. Murtagh was the match winner with 5/21

England v Ireland: Mark Adair, Lorcan Tucker, Simi Singh and Craig Young in 14-man squad

No pressure on Ireland at Lord's Test says Adair
Ireland have named potential Test debutants Mark Adair, Lorcan Tucker, Simi Singh and Craig Young in a 14-man squad to face England at Lord's.

The four-day Test from 24-27 July will be Ireland's third since being granted full-member status by the ICC.

Ireland lost to Pakistan by five wickets in their first Test in Dublin in May 2018 and went down by seven wickets to Afghanistan in March 2019.


Ireland squad: W Porterfield (c), M Adair, A Balbirnie, A McBrine, J McCollum, T Murtagh, K O'Brien, B Rankin, S Singh, P Stirling, S Thompson, L Tucker, G Wilson, C Young.

Where would Dockrell come in though? Only room for one front line spinner at the most for a game at Lord's and McBrine has earned his place. I guess that Simi Singh got the nod ahead of him because he can bat higher up the order. What we have an abundance of at the moment is bits and pieces players. Adair and Thompson are better options as seam all-rounders.

Although we are a bit short on top order batsmen, this is the first time we have genuine competition for places so for every game there will be some disappointed players (Shane Getkate being another). And that's a good problem to have.

I have a lot of time for Dockrell as a player and I hope he does well in the T20s this week.

Anyway the test match is slightly off-topic for this thread. I hope we end the home games for the summer on a high this week in the T20s. Looking forward to seeing if Gareth Delany gets a debut. He has been doing very well in the domestic competition. Time to see if he can make the step up.

Stirling blitz nullifies Ervine fifty in 13-over affair

Paul Stirling's fireworks made a mockery of a stiff run-chase

Paul Stirling's sensational batting display helped Ireland make mincemeat of Zimbabwe's 132 for 8 in a rain-truncated 13-overs-a-side affair in Northern Ireland. Off the 134 that Ireland got in just 10.5 overs, Stirling smashed an unbeaten 83 off just 36 balls - 67 off which came in boundaries (6 fours and 7 sixes) to take Ireland to a 1-0 lead in the second game of the three-match T20I series.

Zimbabwe's Craig Ervine was just getting started when rain interupted play with the visitors on 40 for 2 in 5 overs. When they eventually resumed, the Zimbabweans had to take the scoring rate a notch higher as there was a reduction in overs.

Ervine obliged, and went after Shane Getkate and Gareth Delany right after the rain break. There was a fiery 50-run stand with Sean Williams as Zimbabwe batsmen went for broke. Ireland struck timely blows but Ervine ensured Zimbabwe kept their scoring rate up at 10-an-over. He fell for an innings-defining 55 off 32 balls in the 12th, before Ryan Burl and Richmond Mutumbami hit a four each in the final over to help Zimbabwe end on 132 for 8 in 13 overs.

Ireland openers Stirling and Kevin O'Brien came out all guns blazing, taking 22 off the first two overs. The knob was turned further in the third - off Tendai Chatara - and the fourth - off Chris Mpofu - taking the opening stand to 50 runs in just four overs. Hamilton Masakadza trusted Chatara with an immediate second over, and that move paid off as O'Brien holed out to Jarvis at extra cover.

However, that wicket didn't make any difference to Stirling, as he hit two sixes in a 19-run sixth over off Ryan Burl. At this stage, the target was dwarfed - to just 56 off 42 balls.

Despite taking such a big early leap, there was no letting up from the Irish batters, as Jarvis returned to get pounded for 13 off his second over. When both Stirling and Andy Balbirnie hit Sean Williams for a four each in the 8th, Ireland had already breached the 100-run mark and were on course for a comprehensive victory.

It didn't help Zimbabwe one bit that Sikandar Raza would come on and straight away dole out a freebie on a platter for Stirling - a hit-me long hop - that was smashed over deep square leg. Raza overcompensated straight away by going too full and got the same treatment - this time over the long on fence. By the end of this over, Ireland's asking rate had dipped to as low as four-and-a-half an over.

Such was the level of devastation, that the 10th over - from Mpofu - was just the second of the innings which did not yield runs in the double-digits for Ireland. Just five balls later though, Stirling sealed the chase.

Brief Scores: Zimbabwe 132/8 in 13 overs (Craig Ervine 55, Sean Williams 34; Mark Adair 4-40) lost to Ireland 134/1 in 10.5 overs (Paul Stirling 83*, Andrew Balbirnie 28*) by 9 wickets
