0.4 to PR Stirling, chipped straight to midwicket! It's full and swinging in, Stirling errs by not going through with the shot and hit it in the air for the dolly to be taken. Was it a trap? It perhaps was. The top hand came off the handle from Stirling as he went through, so it lobbed off a thickish inside edge too.. 2/1
2.1 to A Balbirnie, nicked and gone! Slanted this across on a length, Balbirnie is sucked into a drive that wasn't on. This one held its line and didn't come back in. Regulation catch for Bairstow. Ireland in early trouble. 7/2
6.2 to GJ Delany, drilled straight to backward point! The freefall continues. Bowled it full and wide, there for the drive and Delany just skewed it low to the right of Banton.. 28/4
6.3 to LJ Tucker, fourth for Willey and it has come about through a sensible review. Pitched on middle and leg, came back in a wee bit to hit him in front as he tried to work it across the line. Height was in question, I thought, but no. Replays confirm this would've smashed leg stump.. 28/5
44.4 to CA Young, there's the fifth and it's a good catch by Roy running in from mid-off. Willey's first five-for in ODIs. Length ball angling away, Young makes room to slap this over mid-off but doesn't get the timing right as the bottom hand comes off, skews it in the air and Roy hesitates for a second before running in to pouch it nice and low.. 172/10
5.4 to HT Tector, chopped on! Looking to force this into the off side with hard hands, was cramped for room and went cross-bat. Ended up being caught neither here nor there. Was it the desperation to get off the mark that got him? We'll find out this evening.. 28/3
41.2 to BJ McCarthy, picks out square leg, soft dismissal. This was angling in, all he did was use the pace and help it along and in the process, hit it straight to the fielder.. 156/9
21.1 to KJ O'Brien, oh dear... Matt Kevin, what have you done? Chipped down the gullet of long-off, the softest of dismissals and England have their sixth! KOB had been happy to knock it around and tick over, but the moment he tries to hit over the top, he sends it straight to the man out. 79/6
37.6 to AR McBrine, pulled away but he's let the aggression get the better of him. Excellent catch diving forward at deep square. Was it a lapse in concentration? Looking to take him on with the pull but didn't time it as well as he would've liked.. 145/8

TOTAL27.5 Ov (RR: 6.25)174/4
Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Jonny Bairstow, 2.5 ov), 2-34 (Jason Roy, 5.3 ov), 3-59 (James Vince, 9.5 ov), 4-78 (Tom Banton, 13.4 ov)
5.3 to JJ Roy, nip-backer, struck on the knee roll, up goes the finger! Roy had been roving ominously around in his crease but was pinned there, couldn't get the bat down in time, and his roving days are over (for now). Young found the perfect length, that was hitting the top of middle!. 34/2
9.5 to JM Vince, oh Vincey, Vincey... Loose drive, feathers the edge, James Vince has done himself again! Shakes the head and walks off, wasn't really full enough to drive, and he'd already got away with one in the over, but he went hard at it again and, well, you know the rest. Young strikes, England continue to lurch unsteadily in their chase. 59/3
2.5 to JM Bairstow, spins, beats the bat on the inside, Alex Wharf shakes his head... but that looked pretty close, and Balbirnie calls for a review. Big moment, this. Ball-tracking has it hitting in line with off stump, as Bairstow pushed past it, just enough turn and it would have taken leg! Three reds, YJB is outta there! Excellent review from Ireland, and they have the early success they need. 12/1
13.4 to T Banton, Campher's debut gets even better! Short ball, Banton pulls, top-edged to the keeper! Big fist-pumping celebration from the allrounder, who bags England's young wunderkind with his fourth ball in senior international cricket! Now things are getting interesting. 78/4
