ENG vs IRE Preview: 

  • Although he was out of form during the series win over New Zealand, Joe Root is a top player and we expect him to be England’s highest run scorer in this match. Luke Wood is an impressive attacking pace bowler and he is our tip for England’s top wicket taker at Headingley.
  • Captain Paul Stirling has a top score of 177 in this format and he is our pick for Ireland’s highest run scorer on Wednesday. Barry McCarthy was in good form against India in the T20Is last month and has 69 ODI wickets in his career. We expect him to be Ireland’s top wicket taker against England.
  • Playing at his home ground, we expect Joe Root to find some form and we recommend choosing him to hit over 29.5 runs in this game.

ENG vs IRE Key Players: 


Joe Root 

The right-hander has seen his ODI average dip under 50 after low scores against New Zealand but he has plenty of previous big scores including 16 centuries in this format.

Will Jacks 

The all-rounder has made his debut for England across all formats over the last 12 months and is recognised as a spinning threat as well as a big hitting batter.

Luke Wood 

The left-arm quick bowler is very rarely out of the wickets at this level. He often concedes runs but will bowl with genuine pace.


Paul Stirling 

The skipper was not in the best of form in recent international appearances but he hit 66 for Knights two innings ago in domestic cricket.

Harry Tector 

The 23 year old middle order batter is an excellent ODI player with over 1500 runs to his name at an average of 50.43 from 36 innings.

Barry McCarthy 

The experienced pace bowler should get some assistance from the overhead conditions in Leeds and will want the English batters to take him on.

ENG vs IRE Team Forms:

England come into this match looking for their fourth successive ODI victory with the last three all by large margins.
