This is the first time since 1997 that England has registered their lowest total at home. Back in 1997, England got all out against Australia on 77 runs. England’s lowest ever score 45 all out which fortunately had been surpassed. As of now, Ireland is batting on the score of 16 runs without a loss of a single wicket.
