The top teams can manage 100 off the last 10 overs (Australia recently hit 111 off the last 10 overs against New Zealand).
Surely even a team as limited as Ireland can manage another 53.

There goes my prediction!!! The wickets are tumbling.

Encouraging performance though. Augurs well for the Zimbabwe and West Indies matches.

157-9 (44 overs)

Fall of Wickets:
1-1 (J Bray) 2-34 (E Morgan) 3-69 (+N O' Brien) 4-85 (W Porterfield) 5-139 (A Botha) 6-148 (K Mc Callan) 7-149 (*T Johnston) 8-152 (A White) 9-157 (K O' Brien)

Up to Mooney/Mooney to forge a 36 run partnership from 6 overs!

I won't admit to knowing a whole pile about this Ireland team but having done a bit of research on them in advance of the World Cup I understand that batting is supposed to be the tream's strength and it's the ball they struggle with.
Anyone got any educated opinions? ONeill, you seem well versed.....

Target = 193 in 50 overs; Current rate = 3.55; Required rate = 6.17

Haven't much of a clue about this Irish team. Never seen them play.

Linkbox - that is correct.

They lack depth in their bowling - and their batting is at least respectable.

They'll be hard pushed to get a win in the group stages - but it's a good sign for the future

Let's hope Eoin Morgan doesn't pull an "Ed Joyce" though
