3.05pm: It's been short and sweet, from an English perspective; a sour lolly to suck on for Ireland. But take heart, because there's Lord's on Sunday and the chance for redemption in one of the cathedrals of sport... Join us again for the second ODI, and enjoy your Friday afternoon. International cricket is back - we'll be here all summer. Cheerio!
2.55pm: Here we go with the presentations... Ireland captain William Porterfield: "The first five or six overs with the bat we looked like we could put a score on the board but we were in trouble once we lost Stirlo and Joyce. We knew there would be a bit of nibble [batting first] but we thought we could build a platform for the lads at the end. When it comes to this stage, games come thick and fast, it's more of a mental thing, to put yourself back on track. We've had a lot of support here today and they'll be there at Lord's, so we've got to out in a performance for them."
England captain Eoin Morgan: "Very pleased, pretty convincing, we bowled one or two bad balls in the first ten overs but it was a good wicket, probably the best Bristol wicket we've played on, so losing the toss wasn't a bad thing. Adil today, it shows the threat legspin poses, turning it both ways, he's very threatening. [Mark Wood?] First game back it's important to get overs under your belt, manage the expectation, important he builds up momentum to the CT. [Rashid?] He's had a tough winter playing against high-calibre opposition, so to come back and show calmness and composure was great. I think we have a stiffer test with the SA series coming up, it's part and parcel of our preparation. Take nothing away from Ireland, they have the ability to beat any side, so we need to start again at Lord's. I think on any given day we probably do [know best XI], given one or two changes for conditions, that's important going into a competition."
Adil Rashid is Man of the Match for his career-best ODI figures: "I feel quite confident at the moment, feel pretty good. It's come from hard work in the nets and practice, knowing my fields, knowing how you feel on a good day and when you don't feel so good. [Favourite ball?] Sometimes it's the googly, sometimes the leggie, I just try and bowl my variations and feel comfortable with that."
2.45pm: That's what you call doing a professional number on the oppo. England wouldn't get much credit for anything other than a thumping - and that's what they have served up, Ireland dismissed for a paltry score in 33 overs and the chase mopped up before lunch. The whole match lasted just a wee bit beyond 50 overs, and Ireland have some work to do if they are going to save face in the second match of the series at Lord's on Sunday. We knew the Old Boys in Green were facing a transition period but they would have hoped to provide a stiffer challenge in their first match on English soil than this.
One to go...
Two required from 11 balls
"Lunch with 6 to win someone said...I'm going with scores level after YJB gets out trying to end it in the grand manner," declares Andy
Stuart Thompson back on. England have three overs to score 21 runs and avoid putting everyone into 45 minutes of limbo... Or Ireland could take seven wickets, I suppose
"TV saying they're extending by four overs in case of a result. Presumably it's also to make sure they get the minimum of 20 overs in, in case somehow the weather forecasters get it horribly wrong." I don't think it's anywhere near that joined up, Joel... But we'll give them the benefit of the doubt
