Lords Cricket Ground, London, United Kingdom.

Via The Guardian:

OH MY DAYS! OH MY ABSOLUTE DAYS! IRELAND ARE HAVING A DAY OUT, ENGLAND ARE HAVING AN ENGLAND!

There were two noises: the ball hitting the front pad, then the ball hitting the back pad!

As the whoops begin from the fielding side, the umpire is ordered to reverse his decision because the ball is cleansing the stumps, and this is astonishing!

Ireland have bowled superbly! England still do not know how to bat in Test cricket!

Howzat, Charger?

FIGHT!

I’m getting in touch on behalf of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Cricket Ireland, who today launch the Royal London ODI  [One Day International] Cricket Series between England and Ireland.

With the two teams playing at The Brightside Ground, Bristol, on May 5 and Lord’s Cricket Ground on the May 7, the series will mark a historical date in the cricket calendar as England and Ireland play their first ever ODI match on English soil.

To launch the series, Dara Ó Briain (above) provides a unique interpretation from the last meeting between England and Ireland back in 2013.

England have yet to bat but Ireland were 56 for four in 18 overs (not very good) before tay rain stopped play.

The game could resume at 5.37pm, said a man in a white coat.
