A Famous Irish Victory At The Clash Of The.............Willow?

15th Match, Group B: England v Ireland at Bangalore, Mar 2, 2011 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

Above is the link for the final scorecard from the historic Cricket World Cup win by the boys in green with willow not ash in their hands.

It's not a sport followed en masse here in Waterford though I am aware of a few hardcore supporters for who this result will stay implanted in their memory forever. There is also a Lismore Cricket Club for any one who may be interested in having a bash.

For following the event if you wish to keep up to date as a newly converted fan then ESPNCRICINFO is really quite hard to beat with hard working staff updating you by text on each and every ball. It's where I will be on Sunday (Ireland v India) and is now my safest bet for any involvement in the game having fractured my skull whilst aspiring to be a player such as Kevin O'Brien many moons ago. A great day for many Irish sports followers with Celtic winning their cup game against Rangers in a really "friendly" atmosphere, a few helmets wouldn't go amiss in future fixtures between these two methinks!!
