Ireland v England ODI

In a reduced overs innings [42 overs] Ireland restricted the Eoin Morgan led England One Day International side to 201 for 8 at Clontarf.  Morgan made 59 from 65 balls.  Ireland had won the toss and put England in to bat.  Cricinfo scorecard.  Radio Test Match Special live coverage.  Or Guardian or BBC text commentary.  Ireland require 202 from 42 overs.  Duckworth-Lewis may come into play…  Added  D/L applied to England’s total.  Ireland now require 203 from 42 overs.  Apparently they were using the old D/L method.  According to the new D/L method the target is back to 202 from 42 overs.  And the rain is back.  There’ll be a delay.  Update  Re-start at 5pm and Ireland’s innings will be reduced to 28 overs.  The BBC reckon Ireland’s new target will be 154.  But the rain’s back…  New re-start at 5.20pm.  New target of 129 from 23 overs.  That’s 87 from 10 overs.
