CloseSo that is all from Malahide for today, the new home of Irish cricket has seen a superb game and some stunning batting. Skipper William Porterfield's century helped Ireland through to a competitive 269-7, and it looked like that might be enough when England slipped to 48-4 in the 15th over. However, a world record stand between Eoin Morgan (124no) and Ravi Bopara (101 from just 75 balls) saw the visitors coast home with 42 balls and six wickets to spare. Good warm-up for England ahead of the series against Australia, please join us on Friday morning for coverage of the opening match at Headingley.
Over 43 - 274/4 (Morgan 124, Bopara 101)Bopara produces a boundary blitz to get to his maiden ODI century from just 74 deliveries. He pulls Dockrell away for four, then launches him down the ground for six to match his previous best of 96. Dockrell flights one up to him to follow, and Bopara duly drives over the top of cover to reach his hundred. A single allows Morgan to finish the match with a six over mid-wicket. England win by six wickets as Dockrell's last over goes for 22. What looked like a tricky chase has ended up being a walk in the park.
