It will be one of the great shocks in all sports should Ireland win tomorrow. A team playing in their 3rd test match beating a team that's been playing for 150 odd years.

This.

I'm open to correction on the facts but I recall hearing that New Zealand were playing something like 28 years as a Test side before they achieved their first win.

Thompson gets the last wicket with the first ball. Huge swing on the delivery. Conditions great for bowling.....we'll be hoping for it to clear up and dry out ASAP. A huge and difficult hour coming where we just need to survive.

Yeah, Broad is too much for them. Hard to see them pulling it off now unless O'Brien pulls a monster out of nowhere.

Undoing all the hard work the other day. Bowling conditions may be perfect but that's pretty poor stuff.

I thought we might struggle to get the 180 but getting less than 50 is ridiculous!

From the clips I've seen the ball does seem to be moving around a lot though.

They stop playing now?
That was a bit of a downer.

So it's a 2 innings match and you have 4 days to play it?
