ENG vs IRE Dream11 Prediction | 2nd ODI | Ireland tour of England 2020

England and Ireland will clash against each other in the 2nd ODI of Ireland tour of England, 2020, at The Rose Bowl in Southampton. We will provide ENG vs IRE Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

In the 1st ODI, Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to bowl first. Ireland started very badly as they lost the wicket of Paul Stirling in the 1st over itself for just 2 runs. Fall of wickets continued as Andy Balbirnie scored only 3 runs and got out in 3rd over. Harry Tector and Loran Tucker got for ducks, and Gareth Delany who had a good start got out after scoring 22 runs.

Ireland scored only 37 runs in the first 10 overs and had already lost half their side. Curtis Campher 59 runs and Andy McBrine 40 runs batted sensibly by adding 66 runs to the 8th wicket and helped the team post a total of 172 runs. David Willey was brilliant with the ball by troubling the batsmen a lot and picked up a fifer for just 30 runs. Saqib Mahmood also bowled well by picking up 2 wickets for 36 runs. Adil Rashid and Tom Curran picked up 1 wicket each.

With such a low total of 173 runs to chase, England had a little shaky start as they lost the wicket of Jonny Bairstow for 2 runs in the 3rd over. Jason Roy 24 runs and James Vince but 25 runs looked in right touch but got out in 6th and 10th overs respectively. Tom Banton after scoring 11 runs, got out in the 14th over.

England were 78 runs for 4 wickets after 14 overs, and it looked like Ireland might have a chance but Sam Billings 67* runs and Eoin Morgan 36* runs batted well without much risk and comfortably won the match by 6 wickets in 27.5 overs. Craig Young was a little expensive but managed to pick up 2 wickets. Andy McBrine and Curtis Campher picked up 1 wicket each.

Ireland needs to make a comeback to have a chance of winning this series and keep the interest of the audience alive for this series.
