Funny how injuries hurt more when you get one ball.

Surely Shannon cant just decide himself to still play for the NCU Knights. Cant have your cake and eat it.

What is the point NCU spending money from their budget to give Dublin based players like Tector, Rock and now Shannon first class cricket?

Good luck to James Shannon new chapter for him yes a loss to inst and the ncu by far the best bat but a new opportunity calls and I wish him all the best.AS far as the ncu I think its gone stale not enough big players to get excited about too much money on average players take the pro out of many and they would be really struggling.

Is Shane Getkate joining Shannon at Phoenix too? I'd have thought he would be better going to one of his old clubs such as Malahide or North County? Maybe even YMCA or Merrion?

Strange move from Shannon to go to Phoenix when rumoured plenty of clubs were after him, money must be good in the park this year

I recently attended the 155th AGM of my club(Civil Service CC), at which 30 of the 66 registered adult members attended. When I mentioned this to Dick Forrest, his response was to suggest that this could be inserted in the Guinness Book of Records! This was not the only high note at this very business-like AGM. The Treasurer reported a few bob in the bank,and a small but significant operating surplus for2018. In these difficult times for sports clubs, particularly because of loss of revenue from traditional sources, such as the bar(Drink -Driving limits etc. etc.) it was heartening to see this profit, achieved by increasing Social Cricket, Friendly & Charity events & of course Business House competition. I hope those of you who see me at other clubs will now understand why I always flaunt the club colours on jacket, Shirt and of course my well-worn baggy cap. I am doubly proud to be a Life Member of this well run & above all friendly club. To all the hard-working people at CScc a heartfelt thank you(you know who you are!! to name individuals would be invidious, & risk missing somebody) A Very Proud Hon. Life Member Brian(Batty) Brennan

Eagerly waiting for team selection for Oman/Afghanistan series. Youngsters have done extremely well and hope some players will get chance too. Anyone any idea when team will be announced for the series.?

Surprised to see IP50 going midweek.. Aside from giving up on getting a crowd, there's a number of talented players who may be unavailable midweek because of work or other commitments (reports about Dennison springs to mind but I'm sure there's a few others).

Also, the T20 festival in Pembroke ending on a Monday seems odd, surely Friday-Sunday made more sense?

Finally, hardly any IPC games before the Lord's test.. Hopefully some red ball cricket will be arranged for those in the full squad (maybe a North South game, or Probables vs Possibles the week before?)

Ed's Note: It's still a draft schedule and subject to changes. There's a meeting next week and also to be ratified by CI board at their February meeting.

Excellent effort in the ODI today, great to see Shannon make a score & how well has Lorcan Tucker done?

Must be in contention to be selected and even involved against Afghanistan now.
