Chris Woakes and Stuart Broad ran riot as England crushed Ireland’s dream of winning their first ever Test match. Ireland, playing their third Test, were chasing 182 for a famous win but met a brutal English bowling attack in conducive conditions for seamers.
Woakes continued his superb record on the ground with 6-17 as the visitors were bundled out for a paltry 38 – the seventh-lowest completed innings score in Test history. Woakes and Broad bowled unchanged through an innings that took only 94 deliveries, the joint-second shortest in Test history and shortest for 95 years.
Ireland had bowled England out for 85 before lunch on the opening day of the four-day Test but it proved to be a shambolic end to what had been a fantastic effort by William Porterfield's gallant side.
