Ireland have over the years made a few upsetting performances in ICC events and is the associate team which no team would take lightly. “While we may have lost the surprise factor over the years, we’ve certainly gained a lot of respect for our brand of cricket which has been pretty pleasing. He further added.

The team that has been picked for the world cup has been trained together to get together making it a good unit overall “There’s a great mix as always in the squad, and the younger guys coming through are all hungry which keeps the more experienced players on their toes. Competition for places has been fierce and that’s got to be good for Irish cricket.” said the Ireland skipper.
