    3.1 pitched up and swinging in, hit in front again - and that's out! Carberry manages just 10 runs in atonement for his two drops (plus 0-12 with the ball) and his ODI debut is ended by a man who has played 66 of them with distinction for Ireland. Johnston got the right line to a left-hander, the ball pitching on middle, holding its line and would have lopped the top of the pole 11/1
    8.2 stays back and attempts to run the ball to third man - but Wright has played on! The slowness of the pitch did for him, cross-batted shots always dangerous in these circumstances and a thick bottom edge sent the ball straight down on to the base of off stump. Wright's head sags in unison, he kicks the turf - Ireland are right on top here 25/2
    14.5 skids on, through the defences and bowled him! Murtagh has a third, England's little man defeated by one that came back at him - though in truth it was a loose shot, left a gap between bat and pad and Murtagh located it 48/4
    8.4 tries to leave, doesn't withdraw the bat quickly enough and there's a feather on it - Ballance is gone, caught behind! Indecision from Ballance, facing only his second ball, he wanted to leave but his muscles took a moment to catch up with his brain and the ball brushed the face on its way through 25/3
