England vs Ireland, 1st ODI, Highlights: The match was abandoned due to rain.
England vs Ireland, 1st ODI, Highlights:England's opening one-day international against Ireland was abandoned without a ball being bowled on Wednesday, denying Joe Root a World Cup warm-up. With the rest of England's first-choice squad rested ahead of next week's departure for India, Root requested to be included for the first of a three-match series after a lean return with the bat in four matches against New Zealand. However, he never got on the field at his home ground as heavy rain prevented even the possibility of a 20-over-a-side game at Headingley. (Scorecard)
