Joyce.. Not James.. Ed Joyce..

Ed Joyce, the talented left handed Middlesex middle order batsman is not related in any way to the Irish writer James Joyce, who gave the classic "Ulysses" to the literary world. But he could fashion a classic upset or two and rock the cricketing world, when he leads Ireland in the ICC World Cup 2007. Ireland is placed in the "Jamaica pool" along with Pakistan, West Indies and Zimbabwe and they would definitely be fancying their chances against Taibu's men.

Upset or not, Irish Cricket is bound to get a huge boost with the world cup qualification and their cricketers stand to gain a lot just by rubbing shoulders with the best of the cricketing world.

Carmel Crimmins has a report here. [And yeah, as Carmel says, Samuel Beckett (the only Nobel laureate to play first class cricket) would really be a happy man if he were alive to see this.]
