England vs Ireland 1st ODI Match Review:
Ireland did not give a stunning or ideal start as the opening partnership restricted to the 40 runs only and Stirling lost his wicket on 40 runs, he just scored 20 runs off 18 balls. On the counter side, another opener Joyce went back to the pavilion scoring just 23 runs in 20 balls.
After losing the openers wicket, the Irish batting lineu collapsed dramatically and they could not resist the English bowlers. Skipper Porterfield scored 13 runs facing 45 balls and he gave up infront of the English bowling lineup. Although captain faced more balls than any of the Irish batsmen.
O’Brien scored 4 runs, Thompson added 4 runs in the team’ total target, while Murtagh scored 11 runs playing 16 balls. So the entire team of Ireland scored 126 runs losing all the wickets in 33 overs.
England started to chase down the target, it was not a good start for the English side as they lost their 1st wicket on 1 run, but AD Hales and Joe Root played splendid innings and contributed a 78-Run partnership to the team.
Joe Root scored 49 runs, captain Eoin Morgan scored 10 runs whle JM Bairstow scored 10 runs in 15 balls. After losing the 1st wicket, it looked that English team is also going to the dangerous zone, but Root and Hales proved that wrong and stood firmly. After losing the 3 wickets, England chased down the target in 20 overs with ease and won the match by 7 wickets.
