For the last few hours I’ve been riveted to the cricket. 2 shock results in the world cup – firstly Bangladesh, the clear underdogs beat the might of India, but that pails into relative insignificance with the Ireland result, who beat Pakistan. The world ranking 4th , ex world cup trophy holders have been knocked out of the ICC world cup by ‘minnows’ Ireland who are on their first ever world cup tour.
And it all happened on St Patrick’s day as well! Way to go Ireland!
Shame about the England defeat to New Zealand yesterday, spent the good part of it in a Harrogate pub with a bunch of friends watching it. Still – we’re not knocked out through, we’ve got to beat Canada tomorrow to stand a chance. Normally I’d say – should be a doddle but what with the 2 underdog victories today it just goes to show anything can happen. It’s a funny old game is cricket.
