    Not just Pietersen.

    Over four test matches, they batted seven times, and only scored two centuries and eleven half centuries.

    Strauss got only one half century, and was out for single figure scores three times in the series. Trott also scored over 50 only once.

    Proir scored over 50 twice but was out for less than ten on three or four occasions, if I remember correctly. Bell was out for single scores three innings out of seven, despite some verygood scores in other tests.

    Their batting is weak in general.

    Looks like we will struggle to get 20 points against the Afghans. Both sides made over 400 on what appears a very placid pitch.

    Ireland 39/0 at stumps on day three.
    Tifo poles, sausage rolls and a few goals.

    Not a bad way to get over that defeat;

    Ireland 202/4 (20/20 ov);
    United States of America 124/6 (20/20 ov)

    Virtually through to Super 4s, unless USA beat the Afghans.

    Ireland through to the Super 4's with game almost wrapped up against Scotland. Even if the Scots manage an unbelievable win Ireland will go through as a result of better run rate.

    Morgan the only person to score one day tons for two separate countries. Saw his innings on Sky. Great knock.

    Here we go then!

    Form has been more than scratchy in the warm up, be happy to be competitive against the big sides. On Sky Sports now

    Aye,

    We're in with a shout here. Two costly overs from Big Bad Boyd and the T-Bird at the end there might have pushed it beyond us. C'mon Ireland!
