  Ireland innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal EC Joyce lbw b Willey 23 31 20 3 0 115.00
6.6 much fuller, strikes the pad and up goes the finger! Joyce might felt that was sliding down leg, but if so, he should have got bat on it and sent it on its way. Batsman error, and England have both openers! 46/2
View dismissal PR Stirling b Wood 20 25 18 5 0 111.11
5.4 88.9 mph, through the gate! Through the canyon, if truth be told, as Stirling gave himself acres of space outside the leg stump, but Wood's angle from wide on the crease, and nip off the surface, pinged his delivery with a pleasing 'clunk' into the top of middle stump 40/1
View dismissal WTS Porterfield* c Plunkett b Root 13 64 45 0 0 28.88
21.2 47.3 mph, gives it some air, Porterfield tries to get on with it... and chips to mid-off! A gift of a wicket and Ireland's captain trudges off, having done neither one thing nor the other with that stodgy innings 90/4
View dismissal A Balbirnie c †Billings b Ball 30 41 38 4 0 78.94
17.4 82.1 mph, edged and gone! A flat-foot waft as Ball found some lift outside off, and Billings grabs well, moving to his right. The end of what became a combative knock from Balbirnie 81/3
View dismissal NJ O'Brien lbw b Rashid 16 53 41 0 0 39.02
32.2 54.3 mph, gives it some air, O'Brien heaves to leg, misses the ball - and whaddayaknow, that's out! NOB rolls his eyes as Dar pulls the trigger again, think more in disappointment at the shot than the decision. Simple legbreak, pitching on leg and straightening to hit the back leg 121/9
View dismissal GC Wilson lbw b Rashid 1 7 4 0 0 25.00
22.5 51.3 mph, slides this one on, Wilson plays with an angled bat, the ball thuds into the front pad... and Dar gives it! Wilson quickly reviews, however, seemingly confident he got some bat on it... but no, it passed under the edge, missed the glove and he was pinned right in front! England have another and Ireland are in a spot of bother now. Rashid liked the look of it from the start, scrambled the seam so minimal turn and Hawk-Eye had it hitting the top of middle and leg 93/5
View dismissal KJ O'Brien lbw b Rashid 4 12 8 0 0 50.00
26.3 53.2 mph, tosses up the googly, spins back in to hit the front pad, the ball loops to slip... and up goes Aleem Dar's finger again! Think this has clipped the inside edge and been given as a catch, though Rashid was initially appealing for lbw and KOB didn't bother asking for a second opinion, Hawk-Eye eventually showing it to be smashing leg stump; either way, Ireland are six down and England are all over them like a knock-off kit 104/6
View dismissal SR Thompson b Rashid 4 3 3 1 0 133.33
26.6 50.0 mph, bowled him, another one goes! Two in the over for Rashid and Thompson's three-ball stay is over, completely deceived playing back to a slider, or googly, that thuds resoundingly into off stump 108/7
View dismissal GH Dockrell lbw b Root 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
27.4 raps the pads, Root appeals... and up goes the finger! Ireland are swaying the breeze, looking anything but shipshape and Bristol fashion as Root wins another lbw decision, this time from Rob Bailey. He fired it into the pitch, skidding on without turn and homing in on leg stump 109/8
View dismissal TJ Murtagh c Hales b Rashid 11 18 16 2 0 68.75
32.6 48.9 mph, humpty again, but he picks out long-on - Rashid has his five-for and Ireland have been dumptied for 128! Tossed up the googly and Murtagh obliged by picking out the safe hands of Alex Hales, Ireland dismissed for a calamitously low score, looking green in more than one sense 126/10

View dismissal JJ Roy c Dockrell b Chase 0 6 5 0 0 0.00
0.4 84.5 mph, shuffles forward, whipped off the pads... but taken low at midwicket by Dockrell! Ireland have their breakthrough, an impetuous shot from Roy, not keeping the ball down and sharply taken. In the words of Jeremy Corbyn: The fightback starts here! 1/1
View dismissal AD Hales c Porterfield b Chase 55 47 39 10 0 141.02
11.3 79.5 mph, short ball, swings hard again, there's a big top edge on this, swirling towards backward point - well taken by Porterfield! Hales' luck runs out, but not before he'd taken advantage with a rapid fifty. Another wicket for Chase but Ireland need a few more to make the home fans nervous 78/2

15.3 81.5 mph, short ball, Morgan swings it to leg, high in the air... and Kevin O'Brien makes his ground from fine leg to take an excellent running catch! England are three down, another for Chase... and Jonny Bairstow will get a bat after all! 99/3
