Brian O'Driscoll pays tribute to Ireland cricket heroes

Irish rugby star Brian O'Driscoll yesterday paid tribute to his cricketing counterparts.

He swapped the oval ball for a cricket bat yesterday to record a video from the camp where the team is preparing for their March 19 England clash .

O'Driscoll admitted he wasn't the biggest cricket buff but said any victory was a matter of national pride.

"Huge congratulations to you all from everyone in the Irish set up here," he said.

"When you see the Irish team doing well like you guys did yesterday it doesn't matter what the sport is. It was compelling viewing yesterday against the English.

"I was stuck to my seat as most of the squad were. To beat the team that made the game makes it all the more sweet."
