Jamaica goes green!
Ireland just beat Pakistan in the cricket world cup!

It looks like they will go onto the next stage and Pakistan will have to go home!

I bet anyone in Dublin just got deafened! :-))


One slight disappointment for Ireland is that the record books will only show that they won by getting a rain-adjusted target. In fact, because of a six from the last ball of their innings, they would still have won without the adjustment.

Current Mood: bouncy bouncy

Oddly enough, I dunno. There wasn't much interest in the pre-tournament matches at home, with G. having to tell my cricket fan mother the results. But tonight - beating Pakistan? That's special. The problem is that cricket is very much a minority sport in Ireland.

It's more likely that there's a bit of sobbing that we didn't win the Six Nations - after all, we already knew that we'd got the Triple Crown. It would have been nice to get the Six Nations as well. Damn the perfidious French (I've never trusted them since 1798.)

Oh, and according to a jubilant source in Dublin, there really isn't any coverage happening in Ireland (well, in the Republic, anyway), as he's been getting his results off a website.

Although thankfully most of the country has access to the BBC so can see the highlights anyway. I know my dad pays for Sky Sports, but he's not a cricket bod, so probably isn't watching it.
