Early Wickets Rattle The Irish
An Irish Captain for the English team against his own naive men was an interesting match on its own. Ireland lost early wickets and never really looked settled in. David Willey & Mahmood got a few early breakthroughs including Adil Rashid who got the vital wicket of Kevin O’ Brian caught by David Willey at deep extra cover. Ireland was struggling and looking for a partnership.
Campher & McBrine Bring Some Momentum
Campher (59*) and McBrine(40) got some hope for the Irish unit as they played with confidence and grit. Curtis Campher scored 59* in 118 balls hitting 4 boundaries. While McBrine was a tad bit aggressive in his approach, hitting a six and 3 boundaries for his 40 in 48 balls. Although the partnership couldn’t go on for long as they put on 76 runs together before McBrine got dismissed by Tom Curran.
Willey Stars as He Picks First Fifer
David Willey was seen in full flow as he was successful in picking up the edges of the Irish batsmen, dismissing 5 of the opposition batsmen for the very first time in his ODI career. He got Stirling, Balbirnie, Delany, Tucker, and tale ender Craig Young to wrap up the Irish innings at 172 all out. Willey picked his fifer for the very first time including an assisting performance from his fellow bowlers Mahmood, Rashid, Tom Curran & an economical Moeen Ali.
Ireland gives England Early Hiccups
England began their chase for 172 in an attacking manner with Jason Roy beginning in his trademark fashion. After McBrine dismissed Bairstow early on Vince & Roy continued the onslaught unless they both got scalped by Craig Young. Suddenly England lost 4 wickets under 100 runs and all was left to Sam Billings and Captain Eoin Morgan.
