For Ben Stokes’ team, this game will be primarily a warm-up for the Ashes later this summer but for Ireland it is yet another opportunity to showcase their skills in the longest form of the game. . Who could forget the previous single test match between these two nations?

Back in 2019, England may have won 143 runs but Ireland’s display on the first day, past the hosts by just 85, was a statement of intent that they could compete at this level.

This match promises to be a different situation. In essence, Ben Stokes’ side is more aggressive and prefers to impose itself on the opposition. They have not played test cricket since February and hope to return to their rhythm against the Ashes later this month.

Follow all the action from Day One at Lord’s when England host Ireland:

One final Potts flourish and that was it in the Irish innings, 172 in all.

While it may not quite fit the British ‘Bazball’ style, it is enjoyable after an unstable start.

Curtis Campher almost deserved a half-century penalty for his defender actions, which saved Ireland from a truly disappointing first inning total, which looked doable to 19 tourists. age in the early three doors.

There will be times of disappointment for Josh Tongue, who failed to make his first test, with 13 passes 40 times, even though he hit speeds of up to 90 mph.
