On Thursday 20th, Denmark took on Holland at Railway Union. Unfortunately there was little support for this match as the big clash was taking place at Trinity between Ireland and the World Cup holders England-a dress-rehearsal for the Final. Ireland with two changes from the previous game made 156 for eight after being put into bat although the target was reduced to 153 due to rain and the loss of an over. England, at one stage reduced to 13 for 2, and later 99 for 5 when the rain intervened, replied with 154 for six in the 47th over and won by 4 wickets. There was an excellent attendance at the game and one still wonders if the rain hadn't appeared, would we have had an Irish victory?
