Johnston heroics in vain for Ireland

Joe Denly anchored a fragile performance with a mature debut innings of 67, as Ireland's bowlers thrived in damp and seaming conditions

A great effort then by Ireland, but fine bowling by Shah at the death proved to be the difference between the sides. Thanks for sticking in there for the match and do join Cricinfo for their oncoming coverage of the Twenty20 games and ODIs v Australia

Trent Johnston deservedly received the man of the match award for his excellent bowling and quickfire 21 off 15 at the end.

Well Ireland fell agonisingly short in the end. The presentation for man of match to follow. England winning by 3 runs by Duckworth Lewis method.
