Yes, a treat for some, no mention of transgender matters here lol!
Though I was actually born in England (though those that see Yorkshire as an independent state might say otherwise), I’ve always been proud of my Irish ancestry, and among many things, my sporting favourites do tend to wear green quite often. And given cricket is my favourite sport…
As cricket followers will know, we beat Engand at this years World Cup, much to Irish celebrations. But shortly after that tournament was over, the ICC in their ‘infinite wisdom’ announced that the 2015 version would just be the 10 test playing nations, despite the fact that we’re ranked above Zimbabwe, and as to when they last played a test….
Campaigns at Facebook and elsewhere started, even amongst the big 10, especially their players. So the ICC started to backtrack, and lo and behold, today they have announced it will be 14 teams taking place, not 10. We might still have to qualify, but at least we’ve a chance, and thats all we wanted.
