Ireland win again

Good scenes at the cricket last night - firstly, the ICC showed some sense and realised that empty stadiums make bad television, so they opened the doors and made entry free (given that they'd sold a lot of tickets in advance to people who thought the fixture was going to be India vs Pakistan, they'd probably made their money already). Secondly, Ireland's win over Bangladesh means that Ireland are now officially a ODI team. This means that teams touring England in future will now probably be arranging a few ODI matches against Ireland - good news for the Irish game (although possibly bad news for some English counties, as the touring teams may reduce their warm-up fixtures)
