Foakes, Curran help England beat Ireland by four wickets

first_img(REUTERS) – Tom Curran and Ben Foakes put together an unbeaten 98-run partnership to help England beat Ireland by four wickets in a one-off one-dayer in Malahide yesterday.Chasing 199 to win, England slipped to 101 for six as Ireland’s 19-year-old debutant bowler Josh Little made the most of seaming conditions to claim 4-45.However, wicketkeeper-batsman Foakes scored an unbeaten 61 and all-rounder Curran added 47 not out to give the top-ranked one-day side a scrappy victory. England had won the toss and elected to bowl after the match was put back by two hours and reduced to 45 overs per side amid concerns over a soggy outfield after overnight rain.Ireland captain William Porterfield and Paul Stirling made a steady start and were 46 without loss at the end of 10 overs. But when they had reached 55, England quick Curran lured Stirling (33) into chipping the ball to a diving Jofra Archer at mid-on.Seamer Liam Plunkett removed Porterfield (17) and Lorcan Tucker (seven), before Curran added a second of his own when Joe Denly caught the experienced Kevin O’Brien (four) at backward point. The hosts were 111-6 but debutant Mark Adair hinted at a fightback as he smashed two sixes off Curran.Archer, who conceded 21 runs off his first spell of four overs on his ODI debut, returned to the attack to remove Adair with a 90 mph ball that went clean through the batsman and uprooted the off stump.Barbados-born all-rounder Archer is among a number of players who, despite being left out of England’s preliminary squad for the World Cup, will be hoping to stake a claim for a late call-up to the tournament starting May 30.Plunkett, who finished as England’s standout bowler with 4-35, and Curran picked apart the Ireland lower order as the hosts were all out with 11 balls to play. “At certain stages we knew it would be challenging, but the bowlers did a great job,” England captain Eoin Morgan said.“Three or four of us batted really poorly but Foakes was outstanding on debut … he and Curran got us over the line.”England will next travel to Cardiff for a one-off Twenty20 against Pakistan tomorrow, before the two teams play a five-match ODI series starting Wednesday.last_img read more

first_imgTHE EU’s chief Brexit negotiator is due to begin a two-day visit to Ireland today which will include a visit to the Donegal/Derry border.Michel Barnier will address the Irish government’s all-island civic dialogue in Dundalk before meeting business leaders and lobby groups near the border area.In a statement the European Commission said: “Mr Barnier has already met unionist and nationalist politicians in both Brussels and Strasbourg, but the particular focus of this trip will be to meet business stakeholders from across Northern Ireland, including cross-border groups and companies in the border areas of Derry-Letterkenny and Newry/Dundalk and rural representatives in Dungannon.” Last week, unionist MEPs Diane Dodds and Jim Nicholson issued a statement welcoming the visit, but expressed disappointment it was announced by a Sinn Fein MP.Sinn Fein Foyle MP Elisha McCallion said she was delighted Mr Barnier had accepted her invitation to visit her constituency.The European Commission added: “Mr Barnier has received many invitations over the past year but this occasion forms part of a series of meetings Mr Barnier has across the EU to engage with stakeholders on the consequences of Brexit.”Mr Barnier visited the border in County Louth last May 2017. Last week Brexit Secretary David Davis sparked a wave of criticism for failing to meet locals during a whistlestop visit to south Armagh.His department also apologised for breaching protocol and not informing the Newry and Armagh MP Mickey Brady.EU’s chief Brexit negotiator to visit Donegal/Derry border was last modified: April 30th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:borderBrexitdonegalMichel Barnierlast_img read more
