England vs Ireland Highlights And Cricket Score - One-off Test Match - Summary

End of Over : 15.4 IRE: 38/10

So that is it from this game! It ended in a very one-sided manner but, trust me, it was one enjoyable game. In the end, the team which everybody thought would come out on top, did. England now will turn their attention to the all-important Ashes. There are still a few days to go for it though. For now, you can switch tabs and catch all the action from the ODI between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Let me remind you, it is Malinga's last ODI so you do not want to miss it. Until next time, goodbye and take care!

Jack Leach has been awarded the MAN OF THE MATCH AWARD for his excellent 92 in England's second innings. He was the top scorer of the game and to add to that, he is not even a regular batsman.

It was quite obvious that England were going to put in a better effort with the bat than they did in the first innings. However, the batter who top scored for them was a surprise as it was the nightwatchman Jack Leach. Roy too had a good outing in his second Test innings. When the two were batting, it seemed like they would bat Ireland out of the game but the tourists did really well to fight back and enter the 4th innings on level terms. However, the conditions were one which a bowler would love and England made complete use of it and won the game by a whopping 143 runs.

Ireland though will be very disappointed with how this Test match ended having started it off in the best of manners. After being asked to bowl, they toppled England out for just 85. Tim Murtagh was the star as he finished with a fifer. England however, did not let the visitors run away with the game as a combined bowling effort by them only let Ireland take a lead of 122.

WOW! That escalated quickly! England have blown away the Ireland batting line-up in just the 15.4 overs. This Test match started with one team being bowled out in one session and has ended that way too. Yes, this was going to be a tough chase but not many would have thought England would win so easily. Just the two bowlers were needed for them. Woakes and Broad. The former took a six-fer and the latter, a four-fer.

Chris Woakes to Tim Murtagh. OUT! That is it! Woakes ends the game with the sound of Timber. Fuller ball on leg, Murtagh swings his bat at it but misses. Woakes does not and he disturbs the leg pole. ENGLAND WIN THIS ONE OFF TEST BY 143 RUNS.

Broad bowls it fuller around off, it moves away slightly after pitching. This is too good a ball for a number 10. McBrine looks to defend but ends up getting an outside edge to first slip. Joe Root there, takes his 4th catch of the innings.

It is pitched on off and the ball goes with the angle, Thompson goes chasing after it with his drive. He gets nothing but a fat outside edge. The ball goes to the right of Root. The English Test skipper moves to that side swiftly and takes his 3rd catch of the game. Woakes takes the ball, raises it up and soaks in all the applause. He now technically becomes the first Englishman to take a 5-fer against Ireland.

Having lifted its maiden Cricket World Cup, England’s focus will now turn to red-ball cricket. Before the all-important Ashes 2019 series against Australia, England hosts Ireland for one-off Test at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground.


Ireland, on the other hand, will be looking for their maiden Test win. In two Test matches thus far, Ireland had to face disappointment as they lost to Pakistan and Afghanistan, another newcomer at Test level.
