He's your classic 80 mph at best seamer, the likes of which tend to do well in English conditions. A potential banana skin for the batsmen, but you'd think that England should have too much firepower with the ball for an Irish batting unit that will need to play fairly far above itself to put up a big score. Ireland will want to make it a low scoring shootout, I imagine.
I think it's probably not the done thing to quote oneself but this was predictable. England's bowlers are going to have to really come to the party.

42/6 currently.
