Australia v Ireland
Barbados, 13 April 2007

Trent Johnston
Johnston produced a fine delivery to claim the prize wicket of Gilchrist
Ireland captain Trent Johnston hoped his players might at least learn some valuable lessons from their crushing nine-wicket defeat against Australia.

"You can only learn from that and hopefully a lot of the guys can take that away and build from it," he said.

"We knew we had to play out of our skins and they had to have a pretty poor day for us to be competitive.

"They're not champions for nothing but we still came out and fought and that's what we'll do for our last two games."

The Ireland team gave an intrepid display in the field, despite having only 91 to defend.

"That's something we pride ourselves on and fielding is one area where we can match the big boys," Johnston said.

Ireland now turn their attentions to Bangladesh for their penultimate match in the competition in Barbados on Sunday.

"They've got some form on the board, they beat South Africa, so we're going to train hard and put in a good performance," the captain said.

"I'm sorry for all our supporters who have come over to watch us but hopefully we can put in a better performance in our last two games."
