Over 2.3 Mark Wood bowls a back of length delivery to PR Stirling, out Caught by Sam Curran!! Really troubling Stirling who tried to give himself room for another big slash. This time the edge carries straight into the hands of Sam Curran at third-man.

Over 12.2: He is Caught. Mark Wood to Harry Tector,

Over 15.3 Liam Livingstone tossed up delivery to Andrew Balbirnie, out Caught by Hales!!  Balbirnie shuffled right across and then nailed the sweep, didn't bother to keep it down and didn't get the placement right either, straight down the throat of Hales.

Over 15.4 Liam Livingstone bowls a yorker right into the blockhole to G Dockrell,  out Bowled!! Very full and at the stumps, brings out a lazy drive from Dockrell, the feet went nowhere and he ended up yorking himself, crashing into the base of middle

Over 16.3 Mark Wood bowls it short of length to Curtis Campher, out Caught by Buttler!! Campher shuffled across and was looking to help it on its way, gets a thin edge and Buttler does the rest, moves swiftly across to his left and completes the catch.

Over 17.5 Liam Livingstone bowls a quicker arm ball to Mark Adair, out Caught by Sam Curran !  Adair bends down low, swipes high and straight towards deep mid-wicket, no real power behind the shot and Curran does the rest

Over 18.2 Sam Curran bowls a yorker right into the blockhole to Barry McCarthy, out Bowled!! McCarthy skipped down the pitch, missed it completely and has the base of his middle-stump pegged back. Ireland continues to lose wickets and lose momentum

Over 18.6 Sam Curran bowls a pitched up delivery to Fionn Hand, out Bowled! Hand had backed away on the drive and missed it completely, the ball rattles into the top of middle and the zing bails light up, so does

Over 19.2 Ben Stokes bowls a good length delivery to Josh Little, out Caught by Buttler!!  Little was looking to run it down towards third man, gets a thin edge and it's a straightforward catch to Buttler.
