    0.5 he's edged it to second slip! Hint of outswing from Young, spot on with the length to tempt Roy into the drive and he lunges forward to edge it with a not-so flourishing drive. Not the most exciting series for Roy 2/1
    3.2 nips in and he's bowled! That's a big wicket for Adair! Bairstow was eyeing a big shot on the off side, he missed the movement and Adair is pumped. 14/2
    8.1 loud appeal for an inside edge, they all go up and the umpire says no! Ireland review it. Replays with Ultredge show there's something there and Vince is gone! It was a short of length delivery outside off, nipped in sharply beating Vince completely, and just taking an edge on the way to the keeper 44/3
    26.3 sliced to backward point, Morgan won't be doubling up today! Little gets him (again), but the England captain has already blazed a path for his team to follow here... Swinging across the line, got a leading edge that swirled high into the off side, Harry Tector making sure on the run. Statement knock from Morgan, and still plenty of overs left in this innings 190/4

    28.2 pinned him! Quick and straight, stays a bit low as Banton camped in front of the stumps... Couldn't get the bat down in time and that's a simple decision for the umpire. So a double-breakthrough for Ireland, which might just check England's gung-ho approach 202/5
    33.2 straight to mid-on, another big wicket! Not a full delivery, on length just outside off and seaming in, Billings drives on the up and down the ground, and the length is such that he can't get on top of it. Thick inside half of the bat and it's dipping on the fielder but Adair does well to dive forward and get both hands to it 216/7
    29.1 short ball, leading edge, taken at short extra cover! Moeen is knocked over cheaply again, got in a bit of a tangle against the medium-pace of Campher, ended up plopping a simple catch into the off side... Three in four overs for Ireland, reeling this game back in 203/6
    43.2 there comes the breakthrough, and who else but Campher! Slower delivery around off, Willey probably doesn't pick it and lofts it high down the ground, Balbirnie has his eyes on the bacll while taking a few steps back at long-on and does well to get both hands. What a knock and what a relief for Ireland 289/8

    45.1 oh my my! You have five overs to bat and manage a run-out! Curran gets an inside edge and the ball rolls to the left of the keeper, they try for a single that doesn't exist and Adil Rashid puts in a dive at the keeper's end, where the keeper gets a direct hit. Rashid is short by a mile! 298/9
    49.5 and that's it, Mahmood goes for a big swing only to manage a leading edge to hand a simple, high catch to mid-off 328/10

    41.4 cut to backward point, Stirling is a long way down before being sent back, Curran relays it on to the stumps... looks to be short! He's heading off even as they check the replays, but this has been a magnificent knock, regardless of how it's ended. Raises the bat to the dressing room as he heads off, he'll have earned an isotonic brew or two 264/2

    8.6 bowled behind his legs! Scrambled seam, came out slower, too, and Delany was in no position trying to shovel off his hip - pinged the top of leg stump and England have their breakthrough. Delany can take his 'rural' technique back to the away dressing room after a pretty mediocre series with the bat 50/1
    44.3 tossed up invitingly, goes inside out... picks out long-off! Balbirnie goes, Ireland squeezed, YUGE breakthrough from Rashid! Ireland's captain hangs his head as he walks off, but it's been another fabulous innings 279/3
