Match Ended   
328 (49.5/50)
329/3 (49.5/50)
Ireland beat England by 7 wickets
That's all from this series! Ireland win the last match and they go home with 10 points in the ICC World Cup Super League. England though have won the series 2-1. This series has ended but cricket is back again on 5th August, 2020 when England take on Pakistan in the first Test. Join us at 1100 Local (1000 GMT). Until then, cheers and take care.
Eoin Morgan, the England skipper, says that it is a disappointing way to end the series but credits Ireland for the way they played. He feels that they were quite average today and could not capitalize on the crunch moments. He reckons the wicket got a little better as the game progressed and Ireland cashed in on that. He thanks Ireland for coming to England and play the game. He feels 329 was defendable. Says that Stirling and Balbirnie were good but England failed to take the opportunities that came their way. Adds that they are learning more and more, especially the players who are getting an opportunity. Says that Moeen Ali did a good job, he used all his experience and he did everything he could do but they did not grab the opportunities which came their way. Ends by saying he is grateful to be playing cricket again and he hopes this is just the start.
Andy Balbirnie, the Ireland skipper, says that he is delighted with how they finished the series. Adds that chasing down a total like that is very pleasing. States that they absolutely believed that they can chase this down. Goes on to say that they played very well and they created a big partnership. Adds that they need to be competitive in all the games they play. Is grateful to the England board for conducting this series. Adds that it has been great to come to England and play against them.
David Willey, the MAN OF THE SERIES, says it is nice to get a go and be back and he is pleased with how things went. He wishes that he is not needed to do the job with the bat but he is happy with how he performed. Further adds that he is pleased to get a chance, he was not sure he would get a game after the World Cup but he is happy that he is playing. Ends by saying that he might need a week now to prepare for County cricket.
Paul Stirling, the MAN OF THE MATCH, says that yes it was nice to get the win after two losses and he is delighted to get the win. Adds that they knew they could chase down 300 as they have done it before. States that they had not played cricket for long and it was expected that they would be nervous. Says that he loves batting with Balbirnie and they bat well together. Goes on to say that this is one of his best knocks.
Stay tuned for the Presentation ceremony!!!
The English bowling looked flat today! The spinners, the pacers, nobody seemed at their best. To add to that, their fielding was also poor and it is that department which probably cost them the game. A few catches in total were dropped out of which some were of Stirling who one can say was the mainstay for the visitors.
Now why we write easily is because, they were always in control of the game! The start has been a problem for them and in this game, the openers got them off to a brisk start. However, after Delany fell, came the partnership which took the game away from the hosts. The stand between Stirling and Balbirnie. The two added a massive 214 with both scoring tons. It seemed like they would cruise to victory but there was some drama when Stirling and Balbirnie fell in quick succession. Harry Tector and Kevin O'Brien though ensured the good work from the two mentioned above did not go in vain and they beat England for the second time in their cricket history.
Jubilation scenes in the Ireland camp! What a humongous effort from them! Take a bow Stirling, take a bow Balbirnie, take a bow the whole Ireland side. Not many, to be honest none of us gave them a chance when they came out to bat. 329 was always going to be a stiff chase especially for a side who has been batting poorly in the last two games but they have done it quite easily.

England appeal but nothing from the umpire. England take the review. Rashid is fine on the front foot while the Ball Tracker shows that it is pitching outside leg. The umpires check whether Kevin O'Brien is inside the crease and the replays show that he is in comfortably.
England have taken a review for lbw! It looks close. Let's see what happens.

OUT! CAUGHT! End of a brilliant innings from Balbirnie but could he have waited for Rashid to finish his spell? That will be the question going into his mind. Rashid does the trick again. He has been a pivotal bowler for England and he has delivered yet again. Tossed up ball outside off, Balbirnie makes room in order to target the short boundary. He does not time it well and the ball goes straight into the hands of Sam Billings at long off.

Tom Curran To Andy Balbirnie OUT!
OUT! Stirling is indeed short! He is already on his way out of the ground. End of a magnificent innings by the opener. Had there been a crowd in here, everybody would have bee on their feel applauding the effort just like his teammates have. Not many would have given Ireland a chance when they were set this target but due to his innings, the visitors are favourites at the moment. Still though there is some time to go and this could well be the opening England needed. Coming to the ball now, This is on off, it is carved towards point. Stirling sets off, he wants a run but his partner is not interested. He sends him back from halfway down. The fielder at point throws it to Curran who hits the stumps at his end. An appeal and it is taken upstairs. Replays roll in and they show that Stirling is short.
Big moment in the game! England feel they have ran Stirling out. Stirling too feels the same as he is already walking back. The umpire has taken it upstairs.

David Willey To Paul Stirling
SIX! Outrageous! Once again a boundary to start the over. This is right in the arc for Stirling. He shuffles across and it is bowled on a length and around off, Stirling goes down on one knee and heaves it over the mid-wicket fence. Once again pressure on the bowler.

On middle, AB looks to defend but it goes off the inner half through mid-wicket for one. 2000 ODI runs for the Irish skipper.
DRINKS! Ireland are cruising at the moment with Paul Stirling and Andy Balbirnie still at the crease. They need 116 runs from 16 overs and with the way, these two batsmen are batting, it looks easy for them. England need wickets if they want to make a comeback. Can they do it?

FOUR! Consecutive boundaries! This is brilliant stuff from Stirling. The bowlers are clueless as to where can they bowl to him. Willey this time shortens his length, it is on middle, Stirling plays the pick-up shot. It is wide of the fielder at deep square leg and a boundary results. 8 from the first two balls. This could well be a big over.

FOUR! Powered! Top start to the over, pressure on the bowler. Stirling does not let Willey settle here. Straightaway goes after him. It is a loosener, full and on off, Stirling smashes it past the diving mid off fielder and into the fence.
