One of the surprise packages from the 2007 Cricket World Cup was the success of the Ireland in reaching the “super eight” stage of the tournament. This is a remarkable achievement for a nation where cricket is a marginal sport, at best.

Dave Langford-Smith was a club cricketer for University of NSW before moving to Ireland to play cricket. He was one of the better performers in the team during the cup, taking seven wickets at an economy rate of 41.57 – great going given the quality of the opposition. He was best known, though, for the Irish jig he danced each time he snared a wicket, as this video shows.
