Very disappointed

Stupid wickets given away at crucial times

Top order boys very poor - only 45 runs from 1st 3

Andrew White looks more of a tail-ender than some of the others below him and I would prefer to see Trent Johnson a bit further up as he can knock a few when he doesn't have to protect his wicket and/or partner to the same extent as he had to today.

No chance of Quarters now - have to beat Windies & England (& Holland obviously) for any chance

Joyce, sterling and porterfield scored a dismal 45 runs between them. Rankin contributed absolutely nothing.

George Dockrell - wants to play Test cricket.

DOCKRELL FOCUS ON IRELAND FOR NOW

Ireland spinner George Dockrell admits the lure of Test cricket could one day tempt him to join the England ranks - but for now his sights are set on beating Andrew Strauss' side in Bangalore.

The 18-year-old slow left-armer is considered one of the brightest prospects among the associate nations and did little to dampen those expectations with figures of two for 23 from 10 overs on his World Cup debut against Bangladesh.

While that effort was ultimately in a losing cause, it is unlikely to have escaped the attention of the England selectors - who have previously claimed Ed Joyce and Eoin Morgan from the Ireland camp.

Joyce is now back in a green shirt having failed to earn a Test call-up, but Morgan looks likely to be given an extended chance to replace Paul Collingwood in the five-day game.

It is a route that naturally appeals to Dockrell in principle, but for now he is fully focused on backing up a promising opening match with victory over England on Wednesday.

"Obviously everyone wants to play Test cricket, that's obviously an aspiration of most cricketers," he said.

"That would be one of the things that may come if you want to play for England. But at the moment I'm working hard on doing well in this World Cup, for Ireland, and qualifying for the quarter-finals.

"We'd definitely like to get our World Cup going with a win on Wednesday.

"We were disappointed with the game against Bangladesh. Now we're looking forward to this England match, to get our first win."

Dockrell's excellence with the ball - combined with that of Andre Botha and battling knocks from Niall and Kevin O'Brien - almost saw Ireland to a famous win over the Tigers in Dhaka.

While that result would have been a boost for all underdogs in the competition it would have represented a massive blow for Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan.

He too is a left-arm spinner and one Dockrell has sought advice from as he seeks to expand his game.

The pair first crossed paths in back-to-back ODIs in Ireland last summer, where Shakib offered some tips that almost came back to bite him last week.

"Shakib is a very talented cricketer and someone I look up to a lot as a spinner," said Dockrell.

"When we played in Belfast last year I had a bit of a chat with him about spin bowling and international cricket.

"He's a bowler I always look at and I watched him during that game.

"He was very helpful and getting his view on how I bowled at him that day was very useful. Picking his brain on how I could progress was brilliant."


Fooking west Brit.

Report Cupwinkcook February 28, 2011 7:29 PM GMT
I played against Dockrell when he was 12. We hammered them but he bowled 10 overs of steady medium and got about 30 not out.

You just knew he'd be good but if you told me he'd be playing in a world cup in 6 years time, I'd have called the men in the white coats(not talking about the umpires)
