Ireland stunned England at the T20 World Cup on Wednesday as rain forced an early finish with the English five runs behind the par score.In the recent match of England vs Ireland , the Irish luck has smiled as the clouds opened up. Rain has seldom been sweeter at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Not that the win was a matter of luck; they fully deserve.”

In the here and now, on a rainy day at MCG, Tucker would unfurl a dreamy lap shot off Chris Woakes. A pretty decent delivery, full and just about seaming away from the off-stump line, but Tucker was ready, shuffling across nimbly, crouching, and he would lap it up and over short fine for an one-bounce four. Ever since that U-19 world cup, Tucker has shown a penchant for such shots and an ambition to play the 360 degree game. The ‘descendant of Jesus’ plays a dreamy lap shot. When Ireland’s Lorcan Tucker made his debut in U-19 world cup against India, a curious thing occurred. The TV commentator would read out from the vandalised wikipedia page that Tucker is a “direct descendant of Jesus Christ”.
