An excellent 50th over from Topley. Ireland end at 212/9, with McBrine falling for 24 off the last ball, Bairstow taking the catch without problem. England need 213 to win.


Topley finally gets the wicket he deserved off the final ball of the innings, with McBrine unable to pick another slower ball and gloving it through to Bairstow.

Campher dismissed for the first time in international cricket

200 up for Ireland!

After 45 overs; IRE-179/7 (Campher 47*, McBrine 14*)

Curtis Campher, who made his debut in the last match and looked in sublime form has once again delivered for Ireland, playing a steely knock and holding fort from one end.

Ireland 7 down

Singh, who has just glanced Mahmood for four, tries to run the next one towards the third man and gets a thin edge into the keeper’s gloves. FOW-151/7

Review wasted!

Bairstow’s enthusiasm costs England their last remaining review here – Campher fishes outside off stump at Mahmood and the wicketkeeper yells in excitement for caught behind.

50 partnership comes up for Campher-Simi Singh

The pair has held fort and are looking strong currently; the English bowlers in pursuit for a breakthrough. After 40 overs; IRE-145/6

Stats Trivia

Adil Rashid’s economy has been 3.4rpo today – that’s his sixth-lowest in ODIs. His first and second-lowest also came against Ireland.

100 comes up for Ireland

Stats Trivia

That is 150 ODI wickets now for Rashid at an average just below 31.

Wicket No.6 goes down for Ireland

Another tame exit for an Ireland batsman. Tucker looking to sweep from outside off but only ballooning up into the grateful hands of Topley behind square on the leg-side. England rampant. FOW-91/6

Ireland lose half their side

Tector skips down the track but lacks for elevation and distance as he picks out mid-on. England bang on top in this game. FOW-78/5

Stats Trivia

Adil Rashid’s record against Ireland is better than against almost any other side.

After 20 overs; IRE- 67-4 (Tector 24*, Tucker 9*)

Rashid scoots through another over. Ireland may be picking Vince now but they are not having so much joy against Rashid, whose variation from leg-break to googly is incredibly difficult to detect.


David Millns, the umpire, takes evasive action as Harry Tector goes hard straight down the ground. The umpire just manages to move away in time to not get the full impact of the blow.

Wicket No.4 down for Ireland

Adil Rashid strikes in his first over, completely deceiving Kevin O’Brien with the googly. It spins back through the gate and crashes into middle. FOW-44/4

James Vince picks up his first international wicket!

Balbirnie went for a cut, tried to pull his bat away at the last second but he was too slow and the ball flicked the edge on the way through to Jonny Bairstow. FOW-39/3


Balbrine nails the sweep beautifully. Had to fetch it a tad outside off but the length was right for the shot and Balbirnie used his long arms to good effect to send it crashing into the square leg fence.

After 10 overs; IRE-20/2(Tector 2*, Balbirnie 5*)

Another quiet over, nicely bowled by Topley and just a single for Balbirnie from it. The Ireland captain is looking more comfortable at the crease than the rest of his side so far today.

Second wicket for David Willey

Superb catch! Stirling slashes at a wide one, it goes fast but it is in the air and Tom Banton takes an excellent catch at backward point. Willey has another and the dangerous Stirling departs. FOW-15/2


David Willey is lethal with the new ball and we have seen this wicket from him so many times, swinging the ball back into the right-hander, a little bit of nip off the seam as well and the trapping them plumb in front. Gareth Delany is gone for a duck. FOW-12/1


A fantastic moment for Reece Topley as, after years plagued by injury, he runs in to bowl his first ball in international cricket since 2016.

All set for the start!

England are trooping out as are the Ireland openers. Willey will take the ball.Players taking the knee before the start.

Hello and welcome back to the live coverage of the England vs Ireland 2nd ODI in Southampton

England vs Ireland 2nd ODI Live 

England currently leads the three-match Royal London series 1-0 and a win today will ensure the series for them. The Three Lions put up an exemplary display in the opening fixture as David Willey’s five-wicket haul propelled the hosts to a 6 wickets win. 

After a bright and sunny day in Southampton on Thursday, there is a chance of a shower or two on Saturday with a 25% precipitation. The minimum and the maximum temperature are expected to be 12 and 23 degree Celsius respectively. The Ageas Bowl track in the first ODI was slow but still decent for batting, although the scores did not depict that.

Ireland, despite the loss, had glimpses of positives and will be aiming to capitalise on those to try and win the must-win tie in a bid to level terms in Royal London Series, being played in Southampton.
