England vs Ireland, 2nd ODI: Weather Forecast & Pitch Report for Eng vs IRE Match at Rose Bowl, Southampton

England vs Ireland 2020 2nd ODI, Rose Bowl, Southampton Weather and Pitch Report: David Willey and Sam Billings guided world champions England to a six-wicket win over Ireland at Southampton on Thursday in the first one-day international. Left-arm paceman Willey, appearing in his first ODI since being left out of England's World Cup-winning squad for Jofra Archer, took a career-best 5-30 as Ireland were dismissed for a modest 172 in a match that marked the return of white-ball cricket from the coronavirus lockdown.

But an unfamiliar-looking England, in the first of a three-match series that launches the new World Cup Super League to determine qualification for the 2023 50-over showpiece in India, slumped to 78-4 at the Ageas Bowl. Sam Billings, a late injury replacement for Kent team-mate Joe Denly, made 67 not out including 11 fours at better than a run-a-ball. Together with World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan, a former Ireland batsman, he shared an unbroken fifth-wicket partnership of 96.

In the previous ODI between these two sides, the Aegas Bowl in Southampton had something in it for the fast bowlers early on but generally became a lot easier to bat on as the day went by.

English pitches are usually batter-friendly for white-ball matches so expect a high-scoring affair if England get to bat first.
