Congratulations to Andrew White. A wise choice I think it will prove to be.

Appears that the release made a small error in welcoming the appointment however. Made mention of the three interpro coaches. Does Munster again not count? Why exclude the Munster coach from the selection panel?

If I had money to support this site, I would happily do so as well. Ian does a brilliant job with his commentaries, and I've also had the pleasure to meet him, and sit with him at Stormont in the past (still hoping I can do it this summer, though sadly not the Pakistan game, too close to a US trip), and he's a wonderful gentleman in person too.
I've also done the same with Barry too.

Have to say this site is a big blessing in so many ways, for this England based fan

Well done Ireland. I have read all the positive comments. Not too long ago there were many doom and gloom merchants. The truth is there will be ups and downs as that is the nature of sport. There will be tough challenges when we play test nations on a more regular basis. I for one will support them through thick and thin.
Have a great Christmas everybody!
Cheers Carl

Definitely would be interesting to see Tyrone Kane into the mix. He must be doing a lot right if he's opening the bowling in Melbourne A grade cricket.

I've got a feeling Harry Tector could provide a quality spin option in the coming years as well. He looks a really good prospect and hopefully gets some exposure with the Wolves next season. That would increase competition with Mulder, Dockrell, Mcbrine.

@Ryano, seconded. I think that all of us on-line supporters are extremely grateful that this site exists and amazed at the quality of coverage that emerges from it on a shoestring.

Outstanding work from CricketEurope with Ian providing commentary.

I'll go as far as to say a PayPal Donate Button is well past due.

Re: DLR County

Seemingly it is a merger between Dundrum CC and Cabintely CC
Known now as Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County CC

Brilliant win, really enjoyed that. Afghanistan are a fine side so beating them in effectively their home conditions is outstanding. Great feel good factor before Christmas.

Its funny how things swing in roundabouts - we now have a very decent seam attack. I thought we'd seen the last of Boyd but delighted that he's back firing. Lets hope the new coaching ticket can keep developing the seamers and improve things in the spin department, which is still a concern.

I'd start developing Kane to compete with Murtagh, Rankin, McCarthy & Chase. Great youth prospects in Delany and Little too!

Interesting news story in the Irish Indo that PE will be a Leaving Cert points subject and cricket is one of the sports singled out.

Well Done to Ireland. Brilliant win against Afghanistan.

Is there a new team in the LCU this year. The Senior II Cup Draw for next year

Brilliant result, great fight back, feared the worst after the first game.

Hopefully McCarthy gets an extended run in the team now. Stirling is top class on his day, could be our own little Sehwag when the test matches kick off!

Good to see Ireland end the year on a high. I’m not aware but is there any likelihood that Ireland will play any more international cricket prior to the qualifiers or if they are trying to arrange anything? Match practice prior to the tournament wouldn’t be the worst thing.

Ed's Note: Tournament in UAE next month, and games in South Africa as well as training camps.

Got to recognise the impact of the Wolves programme on this win. Dockrell, Chase and McCarthy all look like they've taken their game up a level. Appears there's some fire left in Boyd's belly as well.

Well down to the Irish squad on coming back from one nil down to beat Afghanistan. Too many supporters, myself included, had begun to lose faith.
Happy you proved us wrong.

Like the pre Bracewell days, nothing short of OUTSTANDING.
Tight in the field, and the stump mikes picked up the team's determination, well done lads.
