A thrilling game ends with Ireland taking home the spoils, winning by 5 runs through DLS! A well-deserved victory!
From juggernaut to nought. England’s air of invincibility was washed away on a damp and dramatic afternoon in Melbourne, where they lost an abbreviated game to an outstanding Ireland by five runs. With rain forecast and the required score in case it arrived displayed throughout on the giant stadium scoreboard England for some reason batted as if bathed in sunshine and paid the price, deservedly cast in Ireland’s shadow at the end.
