    Ireland coach Phil Simmons has never seen his team play better and believes the aggressive mindset, which appeared to take the beleaguered opposition by surprise, will become their trademark

  • Ireland gatecrash the cartel

    The days when all Ireland victories are termed a shock have long gone. Their defeat of West Indies was their most clinical performance against a "major" nation
