      Ireland needs to overtest England’s target champfer with ins and over-wicket runs if the green holders hope to wokka any outballs today

        Oh right……

        Is this like the offside rule in football, in that I know what it is but have a fundamental inability to understand what exactly it is.

    Bit of rain.
    Cloudy overhead.
    Good bowling conditions but still a decent wicket for batting.
    Ireland face a tricky chase.
    But plenty of time.
    All to play for.
    The odds favour Ireland if they keep their nerve.
    Leave it to Charger and not some BS underling to give you the spin-free truth …

      Is there a location on the field called Backstop by any chance? I’m stumped why cricket isn’t the new golf yet.

    Leave it to me to school you oafs in the gentleman’s game just as I school you in most other things.

    For instance,
    It’s a little known fact that Lord’s is the only international cricket ground in the world where spectators are allowed to bring in their own alcohol.
    The limits are one bottle of wine or Champagne or two cans/bottles of beer/cider or two cans of premixed aperitifs.
    Fancy dress,flags and musical instruments are not permitted.
    And yes, for the boggers on here, you can also bring in your cheese and ham sangers.
    As I say,a gentleman’s game.

    Good opportunity for the irish lads to put themselves in the shop window for England selection.

    I’m reminded of a song, “You’ll Never Beat The Irish” – unfortunately, for the most part – well, that’s not true.

        Didn’t actually make lunch.
        Bowled out for 38 in the lowest scored and shortest test innings ever played at Lord’s.
        But nothing for Ireland to be ashamed of.
        They were up against perfect bowling conditions and two top-class bowlers in great form.
        Hard luck to Ireland who gave England a mighty scare.
        Welcome to test cricket.
        It’s a brutal game.

    Final score: nil out along the crease, bat wickets all in for a smut and back to Folkestone in time for nanny! Hooray for the whipsnades!
