That's all from this series. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. England are in good shape and are looking ominous before the Champions Trophy. They will take on South Africa at home for an ODI series later this month and will like to hone their skills even more. On the other hand, Ireland couldn't really come to the fore but they are a talented side. They now head back to their country and are set to host New Zealand and Bangladesh for a Tri-Nation ODI series, starting from 12th May. Do join us for all the action in future. Till then, goodbye and cheers!
Man of the Match, Joe Root smiles and says that the wickets gave him more joy than the runs. Adds that it would be a good position to be in, if he is not required to bowl but it's nice to have an option always. Also says that it's been a slow start to the season for him but is happy to get a few runs under his belt. Admits that the series against South Africa will be a big challenge.
England skipper, Eoin Morgan says that the win in the last game was a more convincing one than today. Adds that he and Root rebuilt the innings after a good start and feels they can get more clinical as one of the top order batsmen should have carried on and scored a century. Praises Jonny Bairstow and Adil Rashid for adding quick runs towards the end. Admits that it's a good headache to have too many options on the bench. Thinks that the quality of cricket coming up is excellent and that's what they need in the build up to Champions Trophy. Feels it was not a very conducive wicket for Rashid but is extremely happy with the way Wood has returned from injury and performed.
Ireland skipper, William Porterfield says that they were much improved today. Mentions that disappointment is the right word. Feels that the first half with the ball was good. Adds that if they had a couple of wickets towards the end, things could have been different. Credits Bairstow and Rashid for batting well to take England to a good total. Praises McCarthy and Chase for the way they bowled. Mentions that it is not an easy task and it could have been easy to hide away. Further credits the boys for coming out hard and fighting till the end. Ends by saying that there are four more games (in the upcoming tri-series at home) to go, hopefully they will keep improving.
A disciplined bowling effort on the whole from the hosts. Root was once again in the thick of things and picked up three crucial wickets. Plunkett was in great rhythm too and got three wickets as well. A commendable performance from England overall and they continue to look a prime contender for the upcoming Champions Trophy.
The Irish middle order faltered but it was their skipper, William Porterfield who was the lone man standing. He was patient but kept running out of partners. He was also smart in picking up the gaps and scored freely. With 108 needed to win in 60 deliveries, the tourists would have felt they were in with a chance. But Porterfield departed soon and that almost sealed the deal for the home side. The lower order was left with too much to do and they crumbled under pressure.
Another emphatic show from the Englishmen and they have clinched the ODI series convincingly. They were clinical in all departments of the game and outplayed the Irishmen hands down. However, the visitors started off the chase in a good manner. Stirling was looking ominous and produced some terrific stroke play. Perhaps, he got carried away and fell to Mark Wood. His dismissal allowed the hosts to put pressure on the visiting batsmen.

Mark Wood To George Dockrell OUT!
OUT! ENGLAND WIN BY 85 RUNS! Wood hurls in an inswinging yorker, right at the base of the stumps, too good for Dockrell as he fails to bring his bat down in time. The stumps are shattered and Wood jumps in joy. The English players are delighted!
