There was a little scare in the middle phase for England in the run chase but barring that this has been another convincing show from England. Ireland got off to the best possible start getting Roy for nought off the third ball off the innings. Bairstow then made most of his time in the middle. He really got going and notched up his 50 off just 21 balls, equalling Morgan’s record for the fastest ODI fifty for England. He reached 3000 ODI runs and joined Root at the top of the list for the fastest ever Englishman to 3000 ODI runs. Vince and Banton failed one again as they both fell for less than 20.

England then lost a flurry of wickets as they found themselves from 131/3 to 137/6 with their captain Morgan and vice-captain Moeen Ali falling for nought. Sam Billings the star from the previous game then steadied the ship with along with a very able batting partner in David Willey. The duo played with a lot of maturity and responsibility to stay unbeaten at the end to put up a 79 run partnership.

Joshua Little picked three wickets for Ireland and bowled with some real venom to bring Ireland back into the game. Campher picked up two and Young picked one wicket. England with that win have won the three-match series 2-0 with one game to left and have brought up 20 points for themselves in the ODI super league.

So that’s all from me, Prashanth Satish, and my colleague, Sameer Deodhar. Stay Tuned to Sportskeeda for live coverage of all the cricketing action from across the globe. Till we meet again, Stay safe and Goodbye!
