Up to date


Welcome to the second ODI between England and Eire and welcome to the bio-bubble at Southampton the place I’m coming to you from this afternoon. It’s a sticky and virtually steamy, loads of cloud cowl and I’m afraid to say there was some rain about. Nevertheless, the solar is now shining forward of the toss in about 20 minutes.

The hosts simply accounted for Andy Balbirnie’s males within the opener, successful by six wickets with 22 overs remaining. The injury was performed early, recuding Eire to 28/5 after sending them in. After that frenetic begin, debutant Curtis Campher (an excellent story, which I’ll inform you extra about as we go) settled in to bat by means of for an unbeaten 59, getting the guests to 174. It wasn’t essentially the most convincing chase early, however Sam Billings (67 not out) and Eoin Morgan took care of enterprise.

When it comes to choice, the principle level of dialogue is the truth that they’re taking part in on the identical floor as two days in the past. It was sluggish then, taking to show, so it ought to jag in the present day. On that foundation, Eire have introduced left-arm tweaker George Dockrell into their squad, seamer Barry McCarthy dominated out with a knee harm. For England, Liam Livingstone makes the 14 on the expense of Joe Denly, who has a nasty again.

Watching warm-ups in entrance of me, I wouldn’t be stunned, although, if Reece Topley is introduced in for his first worldwide since 2016. The left-armer had has extra operations on his again than sizzling meals over the previous few years – that is fairly the comeback story. Possibly in for Tom Curran? Rotation, rotation, rotation.

Proper, let’s settle in. Drop me a line, ping me a tweet. Good afternoon!
