This would be great for irish cricket,I have stayed in Ireland for 5 years,and i am happy to see ireland beating and competing with world class performers. They are hardworking and professionals who can do wonders in coming years. Its time now ireland come out of hurling and show the world what they can acheive...

Will it be a bit like the commitments... a musical drinking spree through the Windies!!! I'd watch that, but I'm sick of cricket for the next few years..

This film can inspire young Irishmen to play cricket and so I think it's great.

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
