Irish bowler Fionn Hand celebrates

England and Ireland have met only once before today in T20. The Irish bowlers shook England in that match of the 2010 T20 World Cup. England were bowled out for 120 runs, but Ireland did not win the match despite getting an easy target as the match was canceled due to rain.

But today in T20 World Cup because of that rain, England lost to Ireland by 5 runs in the Duckworth-Lewis method from a convenient place.

Chasing Ireland’s 157 runs, England scored 105 runs in 14.3 overs. England then needed 110 runs under the DL rule. As both the teams have batted at least 5 overs, the result of the match will be as per rules. The Irish won by 5 runs on the DLS rule as the game could not be restarted.

After losing the toss and batting, Ireland got off to a great start. Paul Stirling returned to the team for 21 runs, but Ireland was not under pressure. Andrew Balburnie and Lorcan Tucker’s 57-ball 82-run partnership put England under pressure. In the Powerplay, the Irish scored 59 runs. Andrew Balbarney’s team reached 100 runs in 11.2 overs. There were still 9 wickets in hand. That is, the eyes of the Irish were then on the big score of 200 runs.

The first blow to that dream was Tucker’s runout. Tucker was run out for 34 runs off 27 balls. After breaking the pair, captain Butler gave the ball to the team’s best bowler Mark Wood in the middle over to put more pressure on the Irish.

England’s loss to Ireland

The in-form Wood did not disappoint. Harry returned Tector for 0 runs. Captain Balburni was pulling the team even after losing 2 wickets in a row. But here too, the ‘gamble’ made by captain Buttler worked. When the ball was handed to erratic spinner Liam Livingstone, he sent Balburnie back to the crease. George Dockrell was bowled on the very next ball. In the end, neither Ireland could settle down at the crease. Therefore, they have to stop at 157 runs with the possibility of making a big score. Balbarni scored 62 runs off 47 balls. Wood and Livingstone took 3 wickets each for England.

Balburni team started well with the ball as well as the batting innings. Buttler caught the keeper’s hand while playing a cover drive off the second ball of Josh Little’s innings. Little also returns Alex Hales. Ben Stokes, who lost himself in T20 cricket, could not save the team. Fiona Hander bowled the individual 6 runs and put the team in more danger.
