Hamilton & BT continue to stink it up in Ireland

Craig & Sean were looking good until the rain hit

I told you, these pitches are not easy, unless you’re on a first team county pitch par is around 140

You see some big guns warming up in Two’s cricket for these T20’s and more often than not they get 20-40 at 120%. Length balls wicket to wicket if the pitch is doing a bit is bloody difficult.

Jeez apart from those two that was a shit show.
Not sure what to say...
Low full tosses should be hit along the ground, everyone thinks they can go aerial but you’ve got to hit it clean.
More bad news today, just received a call telling me that Ed Byrom’s family is moving to the UK. That’s a big blow I have to tell you. I really was holding out for him to get a big offer to come back here.

we are 20-30 runs short given that explosive outing by the southpaws. i have always had a soft spot for Slug. I believe that he can play the typical Joe Root/Kane Williamson innings when he is on song. I guess Rajput gave him the freedom and confidence to play his game. Good to see him play an attacking game. some great hitting from Willy as well.. Hamilton should surely consider retirement.. this is becoming a lot more embarrassing by the day to be honest. all his mates have all gone into coaching and its high time he looked himself in the mirror and made the call. Taylor mmh i just dont know. his poor scores away continue yet again but he really owes us a big one!

Short boundaries behind and huge ones square, it’s not rocket science.
