Thanks for that but I don't understand the 'v Ireland' part either.

Versus, abbreviation thereof

Yes I understand that, it's the whole One Day International v Ireland that puzzles me.

Is One Day International the name of the team who are playing against Ireland?

Well done Ireland - thoroughly well deserved win. It is always difficult to be sure of w=one's ground when only seeing highlights, but England's bowling seemed pretty poor ta times. a plethora of 80 mph (or slower) half trackers interspersed with full tosses. 328 should surely have been a defensible score

I reckon most of cricket was willing the Paddy's to win. What a splendid knock by the big fella Paul Sterling. Took me back to 1966, when Colin Milburn first appeared for us. Balbirnie too of course.

How ordinary our 2nd X1 one day sloggers looked. David Willey again salved some dignity at least with the bat.

But take nothing from Ireland they fully deserved this win.
