    ***Official England in Ireland 2015***

    England vs Ireland

    England in Ireland, Only ODI, 2015, Game 1
    Friday, 8 May, 7:45 PM
    The Village, Dublin




    Both sides have named their squads. England's is very light on for experience, potentially featuring up to 6 debutants.

    England:
    James Taylor [captain] (Nottinghamshire), Zafar Ansari (Surrey), Jonny Bairstow [wk] (Yorkshire), Sam Billings [wk] (Kent), Tim Bresnan (Yorkshire), Steven Finn (Middlesex), Lewis Gregory (Somerset), Alex Hales (Nottinghamshire), Jason Roy (Surrey), James Vince (Hampshire), David Willey (Northamptonshire) + additional players from the West Indies Test squad (expected to include Adil Rashid)

    Ireland:
    William Porterfield [captain] (Warwickshire), Andrew Balbirnie (Middlesex), Alex Cusack (Clontarf), George Dockrell (Somerset), Ed Joyce (Sussex), Andrew McBrine (Donemana), John Mooney (North County), Tim Murtagh (Middlesex), Kevin O’Brien (Railway Union), Niall O’Brien [wk] (Leicestershire), Paul Stirling (Middlesex), Stuart Thompson (Eglinton), Gary Wilson [wk] (Surrey), Craig Young (Bready).

    Very much a win for Dan Pty Ltd Ltd here, as two weeks ago I wrote this article and now can shamelessly self-promote (or be very concerned that England selectors and I think alike) given that four of my five bois have been picked, including the much-maligned Zafar Ansari.

    biased cricinfo headline FTL

    It's a pretty exciting squad, could do without Bres, but at least HZ will be pleased.

    I kind of like him in their, something comforting about old Bres. Vince and Billings pleases me a great deal.

    Morgan should be made to come back from the IPL and captain this if wants to keep his job.

    Jesus, when I saw the "+" next to Willey's name I thought he'd been named as a keeper for a second.

    Yeah I thought you'd be disappointed at Gregory not making the headline. Further proof of a pro-Bopara, anti-Somerset bias, obvs.

    John bracewell is the new ireland coach. Thoughts on this, people?


    Murtagh has problems with his back and hasnt batted or bowled after the first innings. Potentially some very bad news for the irish

    Looking forward to this. Ireland have the edge. Losing Murtagh is a blow though.

    Murtagh is out injured. He had recovered after injuring his back against somerset but tore a hammy in the very next match. Its not ideal that he was rushed so soon but cant really complain because he is contracted to his county

    Hopefully craig young will be included today. He may not be the answer to ireland's pace woes but what we saw at the world cup is not taking them anywhere



    Ohh, and the forecast isnt great

    England bowling first with some rain expected later in the day. Given it rained overnight too, James Taylor presumably wants to let his quick use any remaining moisture, and to know what he's chasing later this afternoon.

    Waiting on team composition.
