Ireland stumped by stolen computers
Belfast: Officials at Cricket Ireland are offering a shirt signed by their World Cup squad as a reward to anyone who can help them recover three stolen laptop computers and two hard drives.
The equipment, which belonged to assistant coach and video analyst Pete Johnston, went missing after Ireland`s match against Namibia at the Stormont ground in Belfast last week.
It contains what Johnston said was "irreplaceable" match footage and tactical information intended to help Ireland, who suffered a shock defeat by Scotland in Edinburgh on Tuesday, prepare for future fixtures.
"I had everything with me as I was preparing for our ongoing tri-series with Sri Lanka and Scotland," Johnston said.
"The footage contained on these hard drives is crucial to our success and preparation for games.
"It`s an accumulation of work over the past four years, and is irreplaceable.”
"I`m appealing to anyone that finds these or is offered them for sale to get in touch with Cricket Ireland immediately."
