ODI cricket is back in town as England take on Ireland in the first of three games in Southampton this Thursday.

This game marks the start of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League as well, which adds more context to this much-awaited clash. Despite the absence of World Cup-winning stars such as Joe Root and Ben Stokes, England have a strong and youthful roster.

Although they are the firm favourites to come out on top, they cannot take the Irish side for granted at any cost. Led by Andrew Balbirnie, Ireland also have a balanced team and should prove to be tough opponents for the Three Lions.

All in all, we can expect a thrilling start to this series as the limited-overs format comes to our TV screens after a COVID-induced hiatus.

Eoin Morgan (C), Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, James Vince, Joe Denly, Sam Billings, Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, David Willey, Saqib Mahmood, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Tom Banton and Reece Topley

Pitch Report

As seen in the practice matches played before this series, the pitch is a good one to bat on. The previous game saw England Lions chase down 296 in just 34.4 overs, giving a fair indication of the nature of the pitch.

The bowlers should get some help off the surface, with the spinners likely to play a significant part in the middle overs. With the weather all good for match day, both teams would look to win the toss and bat first.
