Ireland’s recent A Tour of Sri Lanka shows there’s definitely some talent coming through, with Niall O’Brien & Ed Joyce retiring expect to see some fresh faces into the side which should boost them.

Also the Irish will always benefit from English ( And South African) players with Irish heritage who decide its better to take the ancestors route to international cricket to ensure a better chance of getting a cap.

Looking at the the three sides Afghanistan, Ireland & Zimbabwe it’s hard to argue that Zimbabwe has the bleakest outlook 😥
As far as I saw in Cricinfo they didnt win a game in Sri Lanka. I wouldnt get their hopes up just yet. For me Sri Lanka are probably the closest test nation to the bottom 3 recently. The most corrupt too according to the ICC :D

Speaking of A tours werent we supposed to get some this year?

A tours to Zimbabwe I believe as hosts we have to pay for them. And other countries don't seem to be falling over each other to invite us over there, so probably we have struck out again.

Maybe Zims next ODI series... I have heard from a reliable source that Afghanistan players has requested that their board not schedule anymore tours against Zimbabwe .. Very concerning that they have used us to get better and are now done with us 🤷🏼‍♂️😡🥴 #worldcricketisprogressing

It’s not all about the team result, individually they had some young players stand up and do well, as a result there are plenty of new faces in their three squads to tour Oman & India

Looks like the UAE and Afghanistan are touring in April. Four and five ODIs respectively.
