    Ireland V England Cricket

    I really cant put my finger on why England have become such a good cricket team all of a sudden ?anyway England play Ireland in Dublin today ,England will be captained by Dubliner Eoin Morgan ,Eoin played for Ireland in the 2007 world cup and after a good performances he was given the opportunity and he chose to join England ,he has subsequently played for England in the 2009 &2010 ICC world and the 2011 World cup.
    Ed Joyce another Dubliner captains Ireland today Joyce was a member of Englands Ashes winning team and 2007 World cup squad ,original choosing Ireland Joyce eventually transferred to play for England,but after he fell down the pecking order after the 2007 world cup ,he received a special compensation to return to play for Ireland and was a member of the Irish side that competed and defeated England in the 2011 ICC world cup.
    England will leave most of the regular starters at home and send a shadow side to Dublin players which will left behind include all their South African born players Kevin Pietersen,Craig Kieswetter,Matt Prior,Jade Dernbach,Jonathan Trott,Michael Lumb and Andrew Strauss

    Well isn't it bad enough Morgan pisses off to play for England and to be fair i do accept the merits of that being his only 'test career' chance. But for accepting the captaincy in an ODI against his own country he can go finger fuck a goose the prick.
