'Extraordinary' - Twitter Reflects on Ireland's Astonishing Collapse at Lord's

In an extraordinary turn of events, chasing just 182 to win their maiden Test, Ireland were stunned by the English seamers in the morning of Day 3 at Lord’s Cricket Ground and succumbed to a massive 143-run loss against the hosts in the lone Test.

Chris Woakes and Stuart Broad ran through the Irish batting line-up in their first spells, claiming 6 for 17 and 4 for 19 respectively.

As one can imagine, what was largely considered to be a decent chase, evoked huge reactions when the innings went awry – having been bowled out for just 38.
