**Official Ireland in England 2020**

Huh. Captain, what have you done?!

Bounced out by James Vince.

A sentence I can be reasonably sure has never existed in English until this moment.

Vince's bowling from the school of IJL Trott imo

Would be nice for his batting to follow suit

Typical English seamer, I'd say.

Definitely bowls more good length stuff than the bog standard fill-in medium bowler, whose MO is generally full length to attack the stumps.
He's decent oh yeah. Now he needs to fill in with the bat like that Pakistani all-rounder (Razzaq)

Tector and Tucker is rather discordant as a partnership. Too similar to be characters in the same film, not enough symmetry to form a pleasing double act akin to Bodger & Badger. They need to either be more or less similar, but the current position is untenable.

Niall O'Brien suggesting Tector has a couple of cricketing brothers, so, given the dynastic nature of Irish cricket, we may soon have to decide on a collective noun for them if they join him in green.

I'll throw a vector of Tectors into the ring.

If you google Tector the first result is actually wookiepedia. Tector-Class Star Destroyer.

Which is probably more useful if the Tector brothers opt to form a synth-heavy rock band rather than turning out for the cricket team, but it's there.

It's been a very good partnership under the circumstances.

Edit: Do not trust a word this man says

Nick Knight deploying the old "looks good in one-dayers, so pick him for the test team" fallacy on Rashid.
I have more sympathy for this view than most, but I don't think we learn a lot about Rashid from him taking wickets at home against an experimental Irish team.

Still, 150 ODI wickets up, I would argue England's best ever spinner in the format, and he's pretty much won this game.
