The Maiden Match

The first-ever ODI between England and Ireland took place in 2006, marking the beginning of a memorable rivalry.

Irish Triumph

In 2011, Ireland stunned England by successfully chasing down 328 runs, recording one of the biggest upsets in ODI history.

The Overthrow Controversy

The 2019 ICC World Cup final featured England and New Zealand, but Ireland's Tim Murtagh, who played for Middlesex, had a cameo appearance when his accidental overthrow led to crucial extra runs for England.

England's ODI Evolution

England underwent a transformation in their ODI approach, shifting to aggressive batting after their dismal performance in the 2015 World Cup.

Record Partnership

England's Joe Root and Eoin Morgan hold the record for the highest partnership in an ODI against Ireland, amassing an impressive 140 runs together.

In 2019, Irish bowler Tim Murtagh had a dream spell against England, taking 5 wickets for just 13 runs, causing a major upset.

The England vs. Ireland ODI series has often been a breeding ground for emerging talents, with several players making their mark in international cricket during these clashes.
