England vs Ireland 1st ODI Live Streaming: England will host Ireland cricket team for a two-match ODI cricket series, with the first one being played on Friday, 5th April 2017 at County Ground in Bristol. This series would help English team to do some match practice before Champions Trophy 2017 in June. The Eng vs Ire 1st ODI match will start at 11 am local time (3:30 p.m IST).
Both the teams have met 7 times earlier where English team won six times but Ireland won 1 match which was the biggest upset in ICC World Cup 2011 where Ireland defeated England by 3 wickets thanks to Kevin O’Brien who made a century off just 50 balls.
England is most likely to win this series despite the unavailability of some of their key players including Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler who are currently playing in IPL 2017. The other English players like Eoin Morgan, Sam Billings and Jason Roy have returned back to serve their national team. English batting line up is very strong while bowling department will depend on David Willey, Steve Finn and Adil Rashid.
On the other hand, Ireland will play this with their full strength. The team will lead by skipper William Porterfield and has quality batsmen like Paul Stirling, Ed Joyce, Gary Wilson, Kevin and Niall O’Brien who will play against strong England side. Their bowling department has young as well experience bowlers. It would be interesting to watch can they defeat strong England team or not.
