When Ireland qualified for the last eight of the cricket world cup in the West Indies, they opened up many people's eyes to the mere existence of the sport here. The very English game of cricket has been played in Ireland for more than two centuries but it was only when a special group of players came together that international success was enjoyed.

Captain Trent Johnston and journalist Gerard Siggins trace the long and difficult journey Irish cricket had to make to reach the World Cup, as well as the story of Ireland's amazing victories over two of the world's best teams: Pakistan and Bangladesh.

This is the real story, as it happened, from the Irish captain - contains spectacular and intimate photographs of the amazing games that saw the team reach the Super Eights. Also includes interviews with the team, other players, fans and Bob Woolmer.

With a preface by Brian Lara, this is a must for everyone who was intrigued and delighted by the success of the Irish Cricket team.
