England vs Ireland final match of ongoing series will be played at Southampton on Tuesday. The first two matches were won by England as it was expected before the series. The both matches were scripted in similar fashion where Ireland batted first and world champions chased down the target.
This game is dead rubber for England as they have already won the series but as world champions they will definitely want to finish it off with a white wash. On the other hand Ireland looked struggling during entire game in the first two ODIs.
Looking at the result for now one might be considering Ireland a weak side but there were instances when Irish team tried to fight back and dragged England on back foot.
In the first ODI at one stage Ireland were 28/5 but still they fought back to post 150+ runs on the board which was a sort of miracle. In the second ODI too, Ireland elected to bat first and managed to score 200+ runs. Although these targets were tiny infront of sides like England but they were not easy victories for England.
Irish batsmen may not have performed as per expectations but their bowlers did quite well which is positive outcome for them. They did manage to grab early wickets , didn’t allowed English batsmen to play freely. Batsmen like Jason Roy, James Vince have not been able to score half century even in first two games and we must credit Irish bowlers for this.
England is not playing their first choice players as they have preferred to test their reserved players for this series. There have been few positives for England in the form of David Willey, Sam Billings, Saqib Mahmood.
David Willey has certainly given outstanding performances in both matches. He has picked up 7 wickets till now. Saqib Mahmood has also picked up couple of wickets and Sam Billings has shown what he can actually do in pressure situations. Sam Billings is highest run scorer for England in this series, taking fact into consideration that he bats at no 5 position makes it really special achievement for him.
