The Ireland cricket team will visit England to play in what will be the first ODI series after the Coronavirus lock down around the world. The England vs Ireland 2020 will be a three match series that will begin right after the Test series against West Indies ends.
These two teams have played a total of 10 ODIs against each other since their first match in 2006. Two of these matches were played in World Cups. While the 2007 World Cup encounter was a cakewalk for the bigger nation among these two, Ireland stunned England in 2011.
Overall, England have won 8 games, lost just the one and the other ended in a No Result. In England, there have been only two ENG vs IRE ODIs and both were won by the host country. Thus, the visiting team will be finding their first victory in the country in the 50-over format.
The Ireland team will be playing a couple of practice matches, one amongst the squad and one against England A. The England one-day side will also be playing a couple of practice games, both amongst themselves.
The first England vs Ireland ODI will be played on 30 July followed by the second game on 1 August and the final game on 4 August. All the three matches in the bilateral series will be played at The Rose Bowl in Southampton.
