    the West Indies in Nelson We felt going into the game we had a very good chance of pulling of a great victory and that s how it transpired Sticking the opposition in to bat seemed a wonderful decision as we reduced them to 90 odd for 5 at one point but in Darren Sammy and Lendl Simmons nephew of ex Fox and current Ireland coach Phil they led a wonderful recovery to score a mammoth 304 The new fielding restrictions really are making life difficult for bowlers not that I m complaining but the days when scores of 300 are more and more common hence the feeling at half time that the score was only par It says a lot for our mental state that we feel that 300 is well within our grasp This team are a very confident bunch and have real belief in our ability So it was wonderful to see Paul Stirling and William Porterfield take the attack to the opposition from ball one and put on a good opening stand Paul s innings of 92 was outstanding and Ed Joyce played as fluently as I have ever seen him play Personally I was delighted to keep the attacking intent going and build on the impressive start made by the top 3 Many many years ago when we beat Pakistan I was out with 20 required after doing all the hard work in make 72 and we lost a cluster of wickets to leave that game way to tense so I was determined to see this through to the end and was great to be with old mate John Mooney at the end Yes we had a few wobbles losing a few wickets within sight of victory including the run out of Kevin which I

    Cup read his thoughts here Sydney is one of my favourite places in the world I played many seasons here as a youngster and learnt a lot from the Australian mentality and the way they approach their cricket so it is with great fondness that we have come here for our two week camp We are based at Coogee beach which is one of the best beach side suburbs in the city and all of the lads are loving life by the beach We have settled in well and play our first game against a Randwick Petersham Invitational XI on the 6th This is my third 50 over World Cup and our preparation has been top notch as we have travelled all over the globe this winter playing and practising against high quality opposition All of us are pumped and really looking forward to the competition which will see us play against the West Indies South Africa India and Pakistan as well as Zimbabwe and the UAE We feel that three wins might be enough to get us through to the quarters but four should definitely do it so it means turning over one two top sides which is something we have done before and believe we can do again The local people have really got behind us since our arrival which may have something to do with the huge Irish population in the area but also the Australian spirit and sport loving nature that they possess It has been a successful winter from a personnel point of view with some good performances with the bat so I m hoping for another good campaign for Ireland as we try once again to upset the hierarchy on the biggest stage of all It was great to sit and meet and speak

    Andrew McDonald and we know that we have a lot to prove next season as a group of players The majority of players have been at Grace Road from November and the boys have got to know each other pretty well this winter We have spent a lot of time in the dressing room and going out together socially so there is not much that we don t know about each other There are a couple of new faces but when Andrew and Clint McKay arrive it will be a good environment for them to come into knowing that everyone knows each other well and looks out for each other Everyone is determined to use that in a positive way this season We want to put things right win some matches and be challenging for honours It was always going to be difficult for Eckersley to better his stunning 2013 season when he won six trophies at Awards Night after being the club s leading first class run scorer by some distance Eckersley described last year as pretty average but is being a little harsh on himself The batsman still scored 818 LV CC runs including two centuries and got himself in on plenty of other occasions That was backed up by some decent NatWest T20 Blast performances and Eckersley also forced his way into the side for the vital Royal London 50 over game at Lancashire So it was far from a bad season for the 25 year old but he has high standards for himself and the team He said You ve always got to look to get better Last year the difference was that I scored a lot of 30s and 40s and the year before I turned into one or two more hundreds which led the runs going over 1 000 I scored nearly 820 runs in what was a pretty average season for me so converting some more of those starts into hundreds or even eighties would have helped the team a lot more It would also have helped me get closer to hitting 1 000 runs again So that is what I am focussing on this season It s not so much about changing my technique or mindset it s just making sure I make it count once I get to 30 40 or 50 like I did in the previous season Eckersley was also adapting to batting up the order in T20 during a revamped domestic structure and he enjoyed taking on the challenge The batter thinks that all players will be better for having a year s experience as they look to get to grips with a similar schedule in 2015 He said Batting up the order in T20 was a bit of a learning curve for me It went well at the start and drifted off and then came back so it was a little inconsistent Sometimes you learn on the job and hopefully I ll get another chance to do

    this morning Despite losing two bowlers who have claimed 106 Championship wickets between them this term and seeing 29 overs wiped out due to rain White 21 4 51 5 and McKay 21 9 35 2 bowled their hearts out Northants struggled to 162 8 by stumps thanks in large to Richard Levi s unbeaten 54 so their lead stands at 115 with Crook not expected to bat tomorrow White said I felt like I owed the side quite a lot after the first dig but I knew I could come back and do a job It was hard work out there but I pride myself on those days coming in and crashing the wicket hard and stuff went to hand I went away from what I m good at in the first innings trying to bowl tight like the other lads but here I just ran in and hit the wicket attacked the crease and made things happen It was the perfect wicket for me and it was a good day in the end It was a little bit up and down but the ones that went away from the bat they nicked and we made things happen that way McKay the third member of Leicestershire s 50 wicket club this season chiselled an opening with two early breakthroughs on the third morning The Australian s second over of the morning probed away around the off stump of Ben Duckett 5 and he found an outside edge with the fifth delivery that Niall O Brien snapped up A second wicket arrived after half an hour with another excellent McKay delivery taking out the off stump of first innings centurion Alex Wakely 2 David Murphy opening the batting in place of Newton and Rob Keogh took Northamptonshire towards lunch with

    Shreck that gave County a handy first innings advantage Leicestershire battled hard on a day that carried the major themes of Northants first innings The hosts were 42 4 yesterday and the visitors found themselves slightly worse off at 34 4 when losing nightwatchman Rob Sayer in the fourth over of the morning The off spinner edged to David Murphy as Rory Kleinveldt replicated his overseas counterpart McKay s feat of taking the first four wickets to fall in the first innings Later in the day Kleinveldt mirrored McKay in taking a five for Rob Keogh 3 61 finished as second leading wicket taker with almost identical figures to those that Shreck returned yesterday Murphy matched O Brien s five dismissals and Leicestershire were 325 9 after Northants posted the same score The most important part of the symmetry as far as Leicestershire were concerned was Cosgrove following Wakely in producing a captain s innings in building substantial middle order partnerships Cosgrove s stand of 71 for the fifth wicket with Ali was identical to that added by Wakely and Josh Cobb on day one The first landmark of a stay that lasted more than five and a quarter hours was an 81 ball fifty with consecutive twos off seamer Ben Sanderson whose first six overs conceded just seven runs Ali who again played a mature innings of 14 off 62 balls was caught behind by Murphy off Sanderson in the penultimate over before lunch with Leicestershire trailing by 216 runs O Brien added impetus by taking eight from the first over after lunch and 112 runs came in 20 overs following the break The keeper played a number of his trademark strokes including two cuts and a flourishing cover drive before a hook brought him an eighth boundary and
