A week ago in the world cup people would have put their money for england to defeat the Irish brothers but the innings of O'Brien has eluded the victory of the Strauss XI and also has given more impetus for the Irish when they prepare to contest against India. The match between England & their fellow brothers witnessed the change of momentum soon after the arrival of the O'Brien before which things were really going according to the plan for england.The message that it has left for the teams is that never underestimate anyone as the can just pull up their sock to embarass you for what you have not given the due importance. If England 's defeat was a shock to the cricketing fraternity , there were ripples of it which could almost have pressed the panic button for Pakistan in their match against the men from the land of maples. The evident conclusion is the minnows keeping the mighty ones on their heels as victory has to be hard fought and hope more interesting chapters unfolds as the tournament progesses.

Hi twinkle, Sure, these are the sagas of upsets. In the last world cup Bangladesh sent India home. And this time the Irish trend. Though India is fighting against Ireland, India would have to be cautious in both batting and bowling.

That is the charm of sports. There is always an underdog catching a favorite cold on a given day that gives such magic moments. I think it was a great win for the Irish and they caught England on a real bad day in the field. Also it was one of those days for Kevin O Brien when everything was going in from the middle of his bat. Cheers! Ram

Hi dear Twinklee! May be it can be an upset,but since toady Ireland is batting first and has already lost two wickets with 25 runs at 8.4 overs,I think things may be difficult for Ireland to repeat the win! But then it is cricket, we never know what will going to happen in next ten minutes! Lets keep our fingers crossed and watch the match, just to see who will be the bid score this time from Ireland side! Thanks !
