Ireland won by 5 runs (DLS method – due to rain)
Ireland win by 5 runs. This is a massive result; not only is it an upset but this victory from Ireland throws this group wide open. There is something about this encounter in a World Cup that gets the best out of Ireland. They started positively by taking on the England pacers and though they lost their way towards the end, Balbirnie and Co. had done enough to get a par total. Joshua Little then gave them the perfect start by getting rid of the openers in his first two overs, while Fionn Hand bowled a jaffa to remove Stokes. Malan and Brook struggled to keep up with the rate and that left Moeen to do too much, he struck a few meaty blows before the rain made an appearance. But since we had already had a couple of delays at the start, there wasn’t enough time to get the game restarted.
Fantastic scenes out there. The Ireland players are celebrating with their family and friends who have travelled all the way to support them. Mind you, it is still raining out there but no weather is going to stop the Irish from their celebrations tonight. Bengaluru in 2011 and Melbourne in 2022 – two wins which will be remembered for a long time in Ireland cricket history.
Jos Buttler | England captain: Specially in the first 10 overs with the ball. I thought we were poor and allowed Ireland to get away. We were not consistent enough, let them score on both sides, there were some favourable conditions for bowling, we had everything in our favour; winning the toss and electing to field knowing the weather, we didn’t take advantage of that. The second 10 overs were much better, we let Ireland get 20-30 runs too many in the first 10 and were under pressure to restrict them. They showed us how to bowl on that wicket. Myself getting out in the first over, that’s never ideal and we never managed to grab the initiative. They bowled well and used the wicket well. It (the rain) was going to get heavier and heavier wasn’t it, but again as I said we won the toss and chose to bowl with the advantage of knowing what to do with the bat. They outplayed us in all three facets of the game and the better team won. We know we have made a mistake here and have put more pressure on us, but certainly if you needed a game to get going then England-Australia is one of those.
