Highlights: Ireland suffers a dramatic batting collapse

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.
