6.40pm: Okay, that's us done for tonight. Miller's report is already up for your delectation, and we'll be back for more in the final international fixture of the English summer on Tuesday (and then it's straight on to the World Cup). Thanks for your comments, from myself, Ashish and Thilak, it's cheerio for now. Bye!

6.32pm: Time for the presentations. Will Jacks is named Player of the Match: "Obviously got off to a great start, Ireland did bowl as well up top but once they found their lengths the wicket was a lot harder. Had to find a way through to a good score. We don't play loads of 50-over cricket so we're learning on the job. We thought we had a good score, knew if we bowled in the right areas there was enough there. Nice to score some runs, great opportunity and a great feeling."

Ireland captain Paul Stirling: "We didn't really rock up for first half hour and we can't afford to do that. I think there was enough there if we put it in the right area but we didn't manage to do it. We did well to pull them back, showed some fight and character but it wasn't enough. [Bristol] Last game before a break, energy levels should be up. Loved the fight shown in the second innings, potentially need to be better for longer. [George] Dockrell had a great game with bat and ball. We'll have to regroup come Tuesday."

England captain Zak Crawley: [Pleased?] "Yeah, couple of standout performances with the bat, from Will and Sam, and the spinners bowled well. Thought we were above par, didn't look easy. Rehan was very brave with his fields in the middle there. Tom bowled really well. [Scrimshaw nervous start] Got to give people a chance, back them to do their jobs."

6.30pm: Ireland kept coming gamely, demonstrated by scores of 41 and 40 not out from the Nos. 9 and 10 - but that was a pretty comfortable win for England in the final analysis. Asked to bat, they piled up 334 thanks largely to impressive maiden ODI fifties from Will Jacks and Sam Hain (although both missed out on hundreds). Ireland's chase was given a helping hand by George Scrimshaw's initial struggles on debut, conceding 35 runs from his first two overs, with six no-balls... but a wicket with the last ball of his second over got him and England up and running, after which they rarely looked back

Scrimshaw to Little, OUT

full and slogged... straight to long-on! Scrimshaw finishes what he started and England win by 48 runs. Any tension building at Trent Bridge swiftly dissipates as Little attempts one big hit too many and toe-ends it to the man back

"All the talk about England's strength in depth, but one guy who seems forgotten about is Matt Fisher. Guy has real pace and talent." He does, Rob. Had a rough run with injuries since debuting in the Caribbean last year (and in his career generally)
