Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Paul Stirling, 2.3 ov), 2-103 (Lorcan Tucker, 11.6 ov), 3-103 (Harry Tector, 12.2 ov), 4-132 (Andy Balbirnie, 15.3 ov), 5-132 (George Dockrell, 15.4 ov), 6-138 (Curtis Campher, 16.3 ov), 7-149 (Mark Adair, 17.5 ov), 8-152 (Barry McCarthy, 18.2 ov), 9-156 (Fionn Hand, 18.6 ov), 10-157 (Josh Little, 19.2 ov)
19.2 to JB Little, Guided into the gloves of Buttler. Such a soft dismissal. On a length and nipping away a bit outside off, Little opens the face and tickles it straight to Buttler. 157/10
2.3 to PR Stirling, Caught by Curran at deep third this time. Wood runs in hard, hits the pitch harder. 150ks rocket chases Stirling who was backing away in a bid to open up the off side. Stirling, however, gets into a tangle and splices a catch to deep third. Pace like fire from Wood. 21/1
12.2 to HT Tector, edged and taken by Buttler. Wood cranks it up to 153ks and gets it to leave Tector outside off. Tector has a short stride and is late onto the drive. Grazes the outside edge and Buttler does the rest. What a double-strike for England. 103/3
16.3 to C Campher, caught behind down the leg side! Wood goes bouncer. It comes up to chest high, Campher has already moved across to the off stump, he wants to pull the ball over fine leg, its a decent plan but he's got himself too far away from the ball and as a result only makes faint enough contact to be caught behind. 138/6
18.2 to BJ McCarthy, McCarthy uses his feet and gets yorked by Curran. On-pace yorker, thuds into the base of middle stump. McCarthy steps out, gives himself some room, but can't touch this ball from Curran. 152/8
18.6 to F Hand, Curran knocks over Hand. He goes wide of the crease, on-pace length ball on middle. Hand backs away, aims to smear it over extra-cover, but misses the line. Castled. 156/9
15.3 to A Balbirnie, #MCGsobig and Balbirnie holes out. He can't clear Hales, about 20 metres inside the rope at deep square. Pushed through and sliding in at off stump, Balbirnie drops down to one knee, slog-sweeps fairly well, but can't get it over the outfielder. 132/4
15.4 to GH Dockrell, yorks him! Dockrell did not expect that. He was batting on leg stump, taking guard to open up the off side. Livingstone perhaps saw that and speared in an offbreak yorker and the batter just wasn't ready for that. Superb stuff!. 132/5
17.5 to MR Adair, Caught by Curran at deep midwicket. Pushed through and sliding into the leg stump, attempted legbreak, the batter splices a slog-sweep and holes out to Curran. Good day out with the ball for Livingstone. 149/7

TOTAL14.3 Ov (RR: 7.24)105/5
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Jos Buttler, 0.2 ov), 2-14 (Alex Hales, 2.4 ov), 3-29 (Ben Stokes, 5.1 ov), 4-67 (Harry Brook, 10.5 ov), 5-86 (Dawid Malan, 13.1 ov)
0.2 to JC Buttler, Edged and taken, Buttler gone for a duck! Little and his team-mates celebrate There was width but also angle taking the ball away. It was full, closer to length than the half-volley area, Buttler reached out and looked to force a drive through cover. Got a feather of an edge off the bottom. Tucker, the keeper, took it low. 0/1
2.4 to AD Hales, This time it's taken! Little bowled short, it was around waist-height, Hales' upper body swivelled as he looked to pull that aerially. Skied it and short fine took it easily. Ireland up and running now!. 14/2
13.1 to DJ Malan, Top edge off the pull... it's taken at deep third! Sigh that relief, McCarthy is ecstatic! Landed it on a back of length outside off, Malan slashed hard as he looks to drag it towards midwicket. Hand ran in a bit but it was well in his reach. Took it low down. Five down now!. 86/5
5.1 to BA Stokes, Hand knocks Stokes over! Absolutely tunnels it between bat and pad! Landed on a length and jagged back in sharply, Stokes had his feet planted and looked to push it straight. Left a gap and the dreamlike ball zapped through. Hand is jubilant in celebration. Was a bonafide jaffa, tell your grandkids kinda ball!. 29/3
10.5 to HC Brook, Third time is the charm as Delany makes amends! It was a short ball that was pulled with Delany straight at deep midwicket. Dockrell is thrilled as he pumps his fists. 67/4
