News: Ireland beat Italy

Italy has been disappointing overall in this tournament….. while many would have expected them to give a performance as good as the Danes, they havent…… Against the Irish today, they were dismissed for 79, and then the Irish managed to win in 12.2 overs. When the Danes played the Irish, at least there was one good batting performance by Carston Pederson, and at least their bowling did the trick. But Italy have absolutely nothing to take out from this defeat.

    From past matchups, do we know how good Greece are relative to Denmark and Italy?…After having topped their group with three convincing wins in the Euro Div II tournament, it may be possible that Italy may not be significantly better than Greece..I think Italy and Greece need more games to make them more competitive because Denmark seem to have gone backwards with not many mainstream players in their age-group teams..Given that Denmark thrashed the Dutch A team recently, it may not be a bad idea to have the Dutch A team tour/host Italy and Greece for some games..

    Well I think it would be upto Greece and Italy to do that on their own….. I dont see how they can be forced into showing their level, apart from what the ECC is already doing in fielding them in the Div II tournament….

    But lets at least hold on and see whether Greece can even make past the semi final stage in Euro Div II…… I think their match up with Jersey will be a tough one, given that Jersey beat Norway, who last year beat Hellas…..

    And I think you are being very optimistic in saying that Denmark ‘do not have many mainstream players in their age group teams’. I think the correct term should be ‘1 mainstream player per age group team’……. I dont think any other top associate that HAS mainstream players in their current team is sufferring from this much of a mainstreaming issue as Denmark……

    Italy is way better than Greece, my own club is better than the cricket national cricket team belive me…
    Italy however have won agaisnt both Denmark and Holland in the previous European Div1 TOurnaments… Ah a couple of years ago Italy won even against an England XI…

    Jersey have now easily defeated Italy in both the games the two national sides have played in Italy…Not sure if these results indicate any decline in Italy’s standards?!…I wonder if Jersey would be of the same standard as Denmark with Italy/Norway/Hellas behind?…maybe Leandro can give us a better account of these countries, Italian cricket in particular…
