Test status vital for Irish cricket

IT was disappointing that the ODI defeat to England at Malahide was as much because of two Irishmen in the 'visiting' team who were the two best England players on the pitch (Sport, September 4). However, their decision to play for England is understandable, as they want to play Test cricket.

Surely this match just goes to show how vital it is that Ireland gains Test status as soon as possible.
