ICC Intercontinental cup, Ireland vs Scotland

4 day match starts tomorrow.  I was wondering if there's any BBC
internet feed like there was for the Scotland vs Pakistan ODI.  While
I'm planning on tuning in to TMS for EvP T4, I'd also like to catch
some of the ICC match.  A live TV feed would be good too.

In case anyone else is interested, preview coverage and rosters:
<http://www.cricketeurope4.net/DATABASE/ARTICLES/articles/000029/00299...>

I see that both countries have a couple of English county contracted
players not available (Eoin Morgan, Boyd Rankin, Dougie Brown, Navdeep
Poonia).

At lunch on D1, Scotland 128/5.  Only Watson who was out on the verge
of lunch has been in the runs (74). Johnstone has 2 wickets,
Langford-Smith has 3.

At tea on D1, Scotland 199/7. (Wright 21*, Blain 18*).  McCallan's
taken the other two wickets to fall. Apparently the ball's moving
around a bit, in overcast conditions.

Scotland 265 all out.  Blain led the tail-end resistance with 54.
Langford-Smith finished with a 5fer.  Ireland will get about 10 overs
batting tonight in very "green" seam-friendly conditions.

Ireland faced 14 overs, losing 1 wicket (Bray, caught off Brown who was
released to play by his county). At stumps on D1, Ireland 43/1
(Porterfield 19*).

Scorecard D2:
<http://www.cricketeurope4.net/LIVE/3/live.shtml>

In continuing seamer-friendly conditions Ireland collapsed at tea
losing its 6th wicket. Right after tea White and Brown blew away
the rest of the order as Ireland nose-dived to 174 all out, losing
its last 6 wickets for 9 runs (shades of England vs Sri Lanka in T2
earlier this summer).

Scotland's 2nd innings got off to a horrid start as Langford-Smith
and Johnston removed the top 4 in the order in quick succession,
leaving them teetering at 24/4, leading by 115 with 2 days to play.

Description of the day; 8 wickets in the last session:

Intercontinental?  Which two continents did Ireland and Scotland represent?

A drunken Irishman once told a drunken Australian (me) in 1989 that a
touring Australian team had never beaten Ireland.  Aside from the
possibility that Australia had never played against an Irish team up to that
point, is there any truth to what that bloke told me?

Na, complete bollocks.  It's actually the other way around: the touring
Australians have never lost in Ireland.  They won in 1938 (twice), 1961,
1968 (twice), 1993 and 1997.

For the last 17 years, I've actually blindly believed it without checking
the facts.  I guess it sounded so unbelievable that I just believed it
without a second thought.

Here's one for the twilight zone:

Ireland vs West Indies at Sion Mill, July 2nd 1969. Ireland won by 9
wickets in a laugher.
<http://www.cricinfo.com/link_to_database/ARCHIVE/1960S/1969/WI_IN_ENG...>

Not to take anything away from Irish cricketing history, but I suspect
that the Windies hit the Irish beer/whiskey like mad the night before,
and paid the price on a nice green seamer-friendly pitch.

All out for 25 is one thing.  Taking 25 overs to do it is another thing
entirely.  I suspect the Windies were into the Irish Whiskey immediately
prior to the toss, immediately after the toss, and for the period between
then and stumps.

I've been wondering that too. Rarely can a competition have had a more

ICC page at cricinfo:
<http://usa.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/2006/OTHERS/ICC-CONT/>

Since they have a vested interest in the Associates and Affiliate
nations, there's often better coverage of the ICC non-test cricket
contests by going to: <http://www.cricketeurope4.net>

Here's the teams that qualified for the ICC Intercontinental
tournament:
Bermuda
Canada
Ireland
Kenya
The Netherlands
Namibia
Scotland
United Arab Emirates

Nepal and Namibia played a challenge match for the last spot in the 8
teams in the field.

Tournament schedule:
<http://usa.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/2006/OTHERS/ICC-CONT/ICC-CONT_SCHE...>

This is block of teams that are the next tier below the test playing
nations with Nepal, and Uganda just missing out. Once they've got some
more seasoning in the long-form of the game it will be interesting to
see how they fair against the A teams of the test nations in 4-5 day
games. I understand that's in the cards very soon. I'd be very
interested in seeing how the top few Associates do, because I think
right now they'd be a fair fight for the Bangles and Zimbabwe in
unofficial 4-5 day "tests".

No play today in Scotland because of rain. Doesn't look like there
will be any either. Nor any in the Ireland A vs Scotland A game going
on. It poured down I'm told, so the A teams have each forfeited one
innings each.
