Cricket news - Live Cricket Score - England vs Ireland, Only Test, Day 2
Edged and caught. Wilson makes no mistake this time and Moeen has to take the walk back to the pavilion. Sixth wicket for Ireland, first after Tea.
Back after Tea. All set for the final session of this day. Effectively, England are only at 87 for 5. And ideally, they should be targetting 200+. Root is the key. Let's see if Ireland can build of the momentum they got after those four quick wickets and shoot out England for a manageable score.
Tea Time! England have lost four wickets in a heap in the later half of this session. Their lead is 87 runs, with five wickets in hand. Join us back in 20 for the final session of the day.
Bairstow bags a duck, again! Calls for a review immediately; he probably thinks there's an inside edge. But there isn't. Umpire's call on whether it's hitting the stumps, so Aleem Dar's original decision stays. England retain the review but lose the wicket.
Oh boy! Root has sold Denly down the river. He called for a single, then changed his mind and send Denly back but there wasn't enough time for Denly to regain his crease. Run out comfortably and Ireland get their third wicket in quick succession.
Leach misses Test century: And the other set batsman falls. It's that man Murtagh again who ends Ireland's nightmare. England's nightwatchman has contributed 92 runs! He walks off to a standing ovation from the Lord's crowd. Take a bow, Leach!
BREAKTHROUGH: Thompson breaks the stubborn 145-run stand with the wicket of Jason Roy! Finally, Ireland have something to cheer about. Fuller delivery, tempting Roy to drive. He misses and the ball goes through the gap to rattle the stumps. The partnership of 145 run is finally broken. Here's Joe Denly now.
Slightly overcast now.
Early drinks break, because Roy has some issue with his shoe. England have just crossed the 150-run mark. Their lead is in early 30s.
We're back on. Post-Lunch session, Day 2 - action!
Lunch! The scores are exactly levelled, with England at 122-1 in their second innings, meaning the deficit has been wiped off. When England resume in post-lunch session, with nine wickets still intact and the two set batsmen already having hit their maiden Test half-centuries, they'll be eyeing as much as they can get. Plenty of time left in the Test anyway! Join us back in 40
Maiden fifty for Jason Roy, in his debut game! Came off just 47 deliveries - he's played his typical way - and included seven boundaries and a six. And England have wiped off all deficit. England 122-1, last over before lunch coming up.
100 comes up for England. Lord's applauds. Good comeback this with the bat, lead by a nightwatchman!
Half-century for Leach: As solid as he has looked with the bat, this was a lucky edge that zoomed past the second slip into the boundary line. Maiden fifty for Leach in Test cricket, and what a valuable knock this!
50 UP: 50 comes up for England, that's 50 runs knocked off the 122-run deficit at the start of the innings. And guess what, Leach has scored 37 of the 53 so far!
WICKET: Burns departs and Ireland have broken through. Rankin comes into the attack and strikes almost immediately. Burns edges one through to the keeper for an easy catch and England have lost their first wicket in the second innings. Here's Jason Roy.
Right then, all set for Day 2 after a maniac 20-wicket opening day. Out walk the English openers - nightwatchman Leach and Burns.
England all out for 85. Ireland take a first innings lead of 122. Very few (if any) would have expected Ireland to dominate the proceedings against the newly-crowned World Champions, England, on Day 1 of the one-off Test at Lord's.
However, Tim Murtagh, who incidentally played for England U19 way back in the U19 World Cup in 2000, put on a world class exhibition of seam bowling on a surface that assisted his style of bowling to pick up a five-for. Adair and Rankin played the supporting roles as England were bundled out for a paltry score. The English pacers hit back by cleaning up Ireland for 207, but a lead of over 100 could prove to be decisive.
Many years ago, in 1969, O'Riordan and Goodwin had cleaned up a fine Windies XI for just 69 in a friendly game in Sion Mills. For the Irish fans, Murtagh's performance would have rekindled memories of that splendid show.
