 Bairstow stars, England wins ODI series

Bairstow stars, England wins ODI series

Jonny Bairstow’s quickfire 72 not out set up England’s 85-run win over Ireland in the second One-Day International at Lord’s Sunday.

 

Victory saw England take the two-match series 2-0 after it had launched its build-up to next month’s Champions Trophy tournament on home soil with a comfortable seven-wicket win at Bristol Friday.

 

Ireland, in its first ODI at ‘the Home of Cricket’, fought hard with the ball in front of a 22,000-strong crowd.

 

But, as was the case Friday, it suffered a batting collapse after a promising start and was dismissed for 243 chasing 329 to win.

 

Ireland captain William Porterfield did, however, make 82, the top score of the match, as his side, which could be granted Test status next month, restored some pride after being bowled out for just 126 in 33 overs at Bristol.

 

England risked squandering a strong position when their Dublin-born captain Eoin Morgan (76) and Joe Root (73) fell in quick succession following a third-wicket stand of 140 to leave the hosts 213 for four.

 

But Bairstow and fellow Yorkshireman Adil Rashid shared a sixth-wicket stand of 88 in just 46 balls that helped take England to 328 for six.

 

Their county colleague Root was named Man of the Match after also taking ODI best figures of three for 52 with his occasional off-spin.
