End of Ireland’s innings: OUT! Topley gets a wicket off the last ball of the Ireland innings. They have managed to get 212/9. At one stage it did not look that they would get even close to 200 but Campher’s 68 took them to a respectable total.

OUT: Curtis Campher falls for 68. Mahmood gets his second wicket. But what an innings from the young man. He tried to gave himself room, was aiming to go up and over extra cover but gets an outside edge and Rashid at thirdman takes good catch.

Three fours: Most expensive over of the innings and Willey would be thinking he didn’t do much wrong there. It was just some superb batting from young Campher. Ireland have reached 200 with 3 overs to play.

Fifty for Campher: A ramp shot over short-fine leg and the ball races away to the boundary that brings up successive fifties in ODIs for Curtis Campher. What an innings this has been from the young man, playing only in his 2nd ODI and he has stood up for his time on both occasions.

OUT! Edged and taken. Just as Ireland were clawing their way back into this contest throught this partnership Mahmood has got rid off Simi Singh. Singh just wanted to run it down fine but ended up getting a faint nick to the keeper. Ireland 152/7

150: FOUR! And that will be 150 for Ireland. The partnership between Singh and Campher now crosses the 60-run mark. Finally some fight from the Irish.

100 for Ireland: Ireland have somehow dragged themselves to a 100 with six wickets down. Once again it is up to the young Curtis Campher to bat with the tail and take Ireland to a total with which they can give some sort of fight to England.

OUT: Dreadful shot. Another wicket for Rashid, he has got three now and it’s another soft dismissal. Tossed up outside off from Rashid, Tucker goes for the sweep, tries to drag it fro way outside off, ends up getting a top edge and Topley at 45 makes no mistake. Ireland 92/6

OUT: Soft dismissal. Tector would be disappointed, he had got off to a start, it was now the time to cash in but he falls to Rashid. The idea was right to go over mid-off but he fails to execute it and ends up giving a simple catch. Ireland have lost half their side.

Fifty for Ireland: There’s the fifty for Ireland. They brought up their fifty in 17.3 overs at the loss of four wickets. The wickets column is the problem for Ireland.

OUT: Adil Rashid you beauty! A perfect googly and Kevin O’Brien had no clue. he played for the turn and the ball cannoned onto his stumps, too good. Ireland have lost four wickets for only 44 on board.

OUT: First ODI wicket for James Vince, would you believe it. And it’s that of the Ireland captain. Vince droped it short and well wide of off, Balbirnie was shaping for the pull and decided to let the ball go through at the last moment, couldn’t drag his bat back in time, went off the face and straight into the gloves of Bairstow.

OUT: David Willey has removed both the openers. A fuller length delivery outside off stump, Stirling goes for the flashy drive, gets a thickish outside edge and Tom Banton at point takes brilliant catch divingg towards his left. Stirling goes for 12. Ireland 15/2

OUT: David Willey had to wait for his third over to get into the wickets column but he did it in style. Delany (0), who was struggling to find the middle of the bat plays all around the Willey delivery that just came back in with the angle. The ball hits his oads and umpire had no hesitation in rasing his finger. Stirling rightly says no the DRS. Ireland 12/1 after 4.4 overs

Maiden: Topley finds his line and length, bowls a maiden to Gerath Delany, who is yet to get off the mark.

Two boundaries: Paul Stirling is away. He has welcome Reece Topley, who is playing his first international match in four years, with two delightful strokes for four through the off side.

Good start from Willey: David Willey starts well with the new ball. He beat Paul Stirling with the angle on a couple of occasions. Ireland 1/0 after the first over.

The players, umpires and support staff take the knee to support of the Black Lives Matter campaign. We are minutes away from the first ball.

Stat: With Topley’s return to international cricket, this becomes the first instance in more than four years of en England side having more than one left-arm seamer in their side. David Willey had ran through the Ireland top-order in the first ODI, this might be a good tactical move by England.

“It’s a used wicket so that’s why we want to bat first, but we’ve got to bat better. We need to show a bit more application early on in the innings,” said Ireland captain Andrew Balbirnie.

England Playing XI: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow(w), James Vince, Tom Banton, Eoin Morgan(c), Sam Billings, Moeen Ali, David Willey, Reece Topley, Adil Rashid, Saqib Mahmood
