England vs Ireland Live Cricket Score: Get the Live Score, Commentary, Updates, Scorecard and Highlights as ENG takes on IRE in Super 12 match on Wednesday.

Result: Ireland won by 5 runs (DLS method - due to rain)

ENG 53/3 after 9 overs: Dawid Malan and Harry Brook have forged a stand and this is an important partnership for England. They need 105 runs in 66 deliveries and Ireland have done an excellent job to keep the Englishmen in check. A couple of more wickets will tilt the match in Ireland’s favour. 

ENG 37/3 in 6 overs: Big moment in the game as Fionn Hand cleans up Ben Stokes and Ireland is putting a strong fight. With three down inside the PowerPlay, England needs a partnership to chase down the total. Jos Buttler, Alex Hales and Ben Stokes - Three big wickets and Ireland is in the game.

ENG 14/2 after 3 overs: Great start from Ireland as Joshua Little has got the prized scalp of Jos Buttler and Ireland will hope to get a couple more inside the PowerPlay. Dawid Malan joins Alex Hales and Mark Adair along with Little have started well. Alex Hales falls cheaply as Little removes the England opener and Ireland bang on target defending a small total of 157.

IRE 157 all out in 19.2 overs: Ireland collapsed in the death overs as in the last five overs, England picked seven wickets giving just 38 runs and that sums up the execution from the England bowlers. Mark Wood and Liam Livingstone shared the spoils by picking three-wicket hauls. Andrew Balbirnie was the star batsman with a brilliant 47-ball 62 with Lorcan Tucker playing the second fiddle. The rest collapsed like a pack of cards. England needs 158 runs to register their second win in the tournament. Back for the chase in a bit. 

IRE 150/7 after 18 overs: Liam Livingstone has taken a three-wicket haul and Ireland has collapsed after the fall of Balbirnie. England’s fightback has been brilliant and the execution from their bowlers halted Irelan’s attack at the death. The 150 is up for Ireland and they will look at least to add another 15-20 runs to beef up the total.

IRE 127/3 after 15 overs: Andrew Balbirnie has hit a brilliant half-century and has been the force behind Ireland’s batting. Ireland will look to post a score in excess of 160 and the next five overs will be crucial. Ireland has the platform and they are set for the late surge. 

IRE 109/3 after 13 overs: Oh dear! How unlucky Tucker was as he gets run-out at the non-striker’s end. Balbirnie drives it back to Rashid, who gets his fingertips on the ball and the ball hits the stumps. Tucker was not even there in the frame. Mark Wood then induced an outside edge to dismiss Harry Tector for a duck. Double blow from England and they have broken the stand.  

IRE 92/1 after 10 overs: Chris Woakes is back into the attack and Buttler attacking with pace and with the spin of Adil Rashid. The run rate has been excellent, hovering just above 8 runs per over and both Tucker and Balbirnie have found a way to deal with the England attack. Balbirnie was severe on Woakes as the batsman exhibited a couple of superb pulls and then used the pace to dispatch the bowler over the fine-leg boundary for a maximum. The momentum is with Ireland and it’s key they maintain the tempo. 

IRE 65/1 after 7 overs: Excellent counter-attacking cricket from Ireland as Lorcan Tucker has taken the attack to the opposition. The England pacers are steaming in and Tucker, riding on the pace of the bowlers has played some stunning shots. The partnership is 44 off just 28 balls and it’s Tucker who is putting a show with the bat. 

IRE 37/1 after 4 overs: Mark Wood has made an early breakthrough and it’s Stirling who falls. Wood is breathing fire and removed Stirling with a 150kmph ball as the batsman made room but slashed it straight to Sam Curran at third man. Lorcan Tucker has joined Andrew Balbirnie and it will be important from Ireland’s point of view to put a decent total on board. With overcast conditions and Wood steaming in, this will test the batsmen. Let’s hope the rain stays away.

IRE 15/0 after 2 overs: The rain has cleared and Balbirnie gets into the act with an audacious drive over the covers for a boundary. Woakes finishes his first over and England will aim to make early inroads. No overs lost.

IRE 11/0 after 1.3 overs: The covers are back on just after nine legal deliveries and it’s frustrating for both teams as the Englishmen sprint into the sheds. Stokes and Chris Woakes began proceedings for England with Balbirnie and Stirling off the mark. The rain is getting heavier and we are in for a lengthy delay at the MCG.

The rain has cleared and out walk the Ireland openers. Paul Stirling along with Andrew Balbirnie will open for Ireland in overcast conditions and it will be Ben Stokes to start the proceedings with the new ball. Expect some swing straightaway.

Rain Update: The covers were off for a brief period and were again back in the square as it started to rain again. We should have a start soon.
