In brief: Johnston calls for Ireland to keep up the Cup shocks

CRICKET: All-rounder Trent Johnston has warned the rest of Ireland's World Cup rivals that their giantkilling hopes did not end with victory over England.

Tournament favourites and co-hosts India are next tomorrow, and while most pundits do not expect lightning to strike twice for the Irish, former captain Johnston says his side will not be content with the defeat of the English last Wednesday.

"Simmo (coach Phil Simmons, pictured) said 'well done, enjoy your night and take tomorrow off, but remember: this is not the highlight of our trip'," said Johnston.

"We've got a few more teams to knock off out here and the highlight is yet to come. We're playing India, for starters."



Windies bus stoned by livid Bangladeshis

CRICKET: Bangladesh fans, who greeted the World Cup opening with a celebration two weeks ago, stoned the West Indian team bus yesterday after a humiliating defeat in Mirpur.

As the victorious West Indian side sat in the bus after leaving the Shere Bangla Stadium to return to the hotel, fans threw stones, two of which hit a window and broke some glass.

However, nobody was hurt.

Shakib Al Hasan's Bangladesh had earlier been humiliated by a rampant West Indian attack, skittled for their lowest ever one-day international score of 58 before falling to a nine-wicket defeat as the Windies hit 59-1 in just over 12 overs.
