Ireland skipper disappointed with ICC for low fixtures

Ireland skipper Andy Balbirnie was disappointed and demanded the International Cricket Council (ICC) to give his country more cricket fixtures.

Ireland recently played two T20Is against India and three ODIs against New Zealand, however, he believes it wasn’t quite enough for the team.

“It was an amazing game (third ODI against New Zealand), we did well to go toe-to-toe with them. Bitter pill to swallow but it was great. The two hundreds (from Stirling and Tector) were among the best I’ve seen. Tector has been threatening to do this, getting two in a week is special. Hope he will get more,” said Balbirine.

“We want to be playing these teams regularly, two (T20Is) against India and three (ODIs) here. it’s a pity we don’t play any ODIs for the rest of the year,” he added.

Ireland showcased outstanding performance in the third and final ODI against New Zealand at Malahide on Friday.

Paul Stirling (120) and Harry Tector (108) slammed centuries but missed the target of 360 set by the tourists by just one run to lose the series 0-3.
