GUICHET! Balbirnie c Bairstow b Willey 3 (Irlande 7-2)

Sharp and gone! Willey steers the ball at the batter, who attempts a drive but feathers a punch.

2nd above: Ireland 7-1 (Balbirnie 3, Delany 1) Saqib Mahmood throws a set. A bonus ball with one delivery that slides down the leg, and only one for each batsman. It’s such a glorious day to be in cricket, which only makes it a bit more painful without a spectator.

GUICHET! Stirling c Morgan b Willey 2 (Irlande 2-1)

Paul Stirling cheats a shot straight to Morgan at midwicket, who takes the easiest catch!

“Points for the rain?” Could Ireland play all of their home games please? They’ll play half of them there, so that’s a start. There won’t be any rain spots today, watch out – it’s absolutely beautiful in Southampton.

Sorry for the radio silence, Sky replayed last year’s World Cup final (again) and it never gets less convincing.
