England knocks out Ireland after a top-order failure

The two neighboring countries Ireland and England took on each other in the ODI match at the Malahide. England won the toss and invited Ireland to bowl. With Jofra Archer, David Malan, and Ben Foakes on debut, England's squad was bit inexperienced.

Liam Plunkett, David Willey, and Jofra Archer restricted Ireland to a total of 198 runs. In reply, England's top order failed miserably. They lost half of their batting line for just 65 runs on the board. Josh Little bowled splendidly well on debut and took 4-45.

Ben Foakes and Tom Curran held their nerves at the end and made sure that England crosses the finishing line. England vanquished over Ireland with 4 wickets in hand. England's top-order is wary of the threat lying ahead and they will look to come back strongly.
