This win will be a big boost for England before their series against Australia, while Ireland will be disappointed after throwing away a golden chance of causing an upset. We witnessed three fabulous innings in the match, William Porterfield was impressive, Ravi Bopara also was fantastic but for his counterattacking knock, Eoin Morgan bagged the Man of the Match award.

!

What a terrific unbeaten partnership between Morgan (124) and Bopara (101)! When they joined forces, Ireland were right on top and England were tottering at 48/4. They approached the chase henceforth with some calmness and after settling down, took the attack to the opposition. The home side initiated well but then failed to carry on with the same momentum in the middle overs. The back-up bowling was very ordinary and they were taken to the cleaners.

SIX! England win by 6 wickets! Dockrell drops it short on middle, Morgan goes deep inside the line and thumps it high and handsome over mid-wicket. The stand is worth 226 which is the new world record for the fifth wicket. The players shake hands in the middle and that's a rather easy win in the end for England!
