No crowd in Ireland

I've burbled about the pointlessness of random ODIs being played around the world before on Cricket Burble, but it's still sad to see the Cricinfo report on yesterday's Ireland v india game, which India one easily, which dispairs at the lack of supporters. I can't see any young aspiring Irish cricketers being persuaded to focus on cricket over football, rugby or any other sport, on the basis of a small spattering of a crowd. Perhaps it would have been better not to play the game?
