Fall of wickets: 1-49 (Alex Hales, 10.4 ov), 2-60 (Jason Roy, 12.4 ov), 3-200 (Joe Root, 35.2 ov), 4-213 (Eoin Morgan, 38.1 ov), 5-229 (Sam Billings, 41.5 ov), 6-317 (Adil Rashid, 49.3 ov)
Tim Murtagh1005015.00346000
10.4 to AD Hales, bowled him, Murtagh strikes! Ireland have their wicket, and it's just reward for some forensic probing from the Middlesex old stager on his home ground... It was on a perfect length, nipping back up the slope, Hales was really in no-man's land trying to drive and the ball snaked between bat and pad to hit middle and leg. That's a bingo!. 49/1
Peter Chase1006926.903310120
35.2 to JE Root, skips out and launches the ball... straight to mid-off! Root departs trying to lift the tempo, solid connection on the shot but didn't get enough elevation and he ended up drilling it to the man on the edge of the ring. 200/3
49.3 to AU Rashid, short and paddled to leg, kisses the top edge - and O'Brien snaffles it! Think that might have been a slower-ball bouncer and it does for Rashid, but not after a lickety-split 39 from 25 to dash Ireland's hopes of keeping the target below 300. 317/6
Kevin O'Brien907107.882410110
Barry McCarthy1006126.10284200
12.4 to JJ Roy, full and nailed on the drive - straight to extra cover! Roy falls, wasn't to the pitch and although he flashed hard, it basically went straight into Stirling's hands as he put them up instinctively in front of his face. McCarthy bellows in delight and England have lost both openers. 60/2
38.1 to EJG Morgan, strikes first ball, Morgan dinking to extra cover! The change works and again McCarthy gets a wicket in his first over... Like Root, Morgan was looking to get on with things, he made a bit of room but this was well bowled, a cutter giving him less pace to work with and he sliced it to the right of Joyce, who plunged forward to hold a good catch. 213/4
George Dockrell805216.50153110
41.5 to SW Billings, skips down the pitch... but Billings holes out! Wasn't quite the full-blooded mow that shot required to land it in the pavilion - more of a bottom-handed flip that he was looking to hit squarer - and KOB takes a smart running catch to continue Ireland's resurgence. 229/5

Fall of wickets: 1-68 (Paul Stirling, 13.1 ov), 2-77 (Ed Joyce, 15.4 ov), 3-87 (Andy Balbirnie, 18.2 ov), 4-113 (Niall O'Brien, 23.2 ov), 5-154 (Gary Wilson, 31.3 ov), 6-178 (Kevin O'Brien, 34.3 ov), 7-223 (William Porterfield, 40.4 ov), 8-226 (Barry McCarthy, 41.5 ov), 9-231 (Tim Murtagh, 43.1 ov), 10-243 (George Dockrell, 46.1 ov)
Mark Wood8.103824.65284100
40.4 to WTS Porterfield, and the captain goes! Trying to manufacture something, moving across his crease to scoop Wood towards fine leg (a challenge) and he misses. A fine innings by the Ireland skipper who shows his frustration as he walks off. 223/7
46.1 to GH Dockrell, all over! That's a convincing way to end things as Wood spears a pinpoint yorker through Dockrell. 243/10
David Willey302307.66124010
Jake Ball703815.42234110
13.1 to PR Stirling, huge appeal for caught behind! Not given by Tim Robinson. England call for the review. Billings (and Ball) are certain. Stirling clashing outside off at a back-of-a-length delivery. There's a spike on Ultra Edge, this will be out. 68/1
Liam Plunkett802332.87301020
18.2 to A Balbirnie, stuck on the crease, struck on the pads... given! Looked a touch leg side but Balbirne elects not to review it, so Plunkett picks up a wicket and Ireland are now three down. He was quite a way back and that is probably what convinced Paul Reiffel. 87/3
41.5 to BJ McCarthy, comes down the pitch, tries to launch Plunkett straight down the ground. But only gets height rather than distance, Ball judges a steepling catch very well moving back from mid-off. The ball came over Ball's shoulder. 226/8
43.1 to TJ Murtagh, spoons a simple catch to backward point, a third catch for Ball. Shimmying to the leg side, then plinks it off the toe of the bat, looping comfortable to the man inside the ring. 231/9
Joe Root1005235.20261220
15.4 to EC Joyce, through him! Root does it again in his first over. Slides a quicker ball down the slope, Joyce was giving himself room as well, he misses playing off the back foot and the leg stump is hit. 77/2
23.2 to NJ O'Brien, goes downtown again... but picks out long-on this time! Not out of the middle, maybe darted in a little quicker and O'Brien couldn't get out to it, David Willey had to come in off the rope and clasp it low down. 113/4
31.3 to GC Wilson, tossed up outside off, Wilson swipes hard - and sends it straight to deep point! Root breaks the stand and pick up his third wicket, forever ruining the symmetry of having a best of 2 for 9 in all three international formats. Gah!. 154/5
Adil Rashid1006816.80215200
34.3 to KJ O'Brien, slogs across the line, big top edge - and goodnight, KOB! Rashid wins the duel, he kept tossing it up and he's rewarded with his first wicket of the day, a rather ungainly hoick from O'Brien and it didn't travel far in the end, taken by the man backpedalling on the edge of the ring at backward square leg. 178/6
