A fairly comfortable win for England, but they were made to work hard by a determined Irish side. England's bowlers lost their way in the middle of the innings, and had it not been for Paul Collingwood's late onslaught then it would have been a much tighter match - at 40 overs the two teams' scores were almost neck-to-neck, but England, crucially had wickets in hand and heaps more experience. A good contest and Ireland showed doubters that they are worth their place in the Super Eights.

That's it from us this afternoon. Tomorrow it's another of the surprise packages, Bangladesh, against Australia. Will it be Cardiff 2005 all over again? From Martin Williamson and Will Luke, it's goodbye.

Flintoff to McCallan, OUT, another well-directed yorker, through a indecisive swish, and the leg stump is sent spinning
