Irish players on a sticky wicket

Published 09/09/2013

SO let me get this straight. England beat Ireland at cricket with an Irishman scoring a century for England.

Another Irishman, making his debut for England, took the wicket of the Irishman who used to play for England, but is now playing for Ireland again.

It sounds like the start of a corny joke. I just feel sorry for the Ulsterman who got a century for Ireland, but lost to England.
