Curtis Campher's debut fifty was in vain as a maiden ODI five-for from David Willey and a career-high ODI score from Sam Billings set England off to a winning start in the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League.— ICC (@ICC) July 30, 2020

After Ireland has lost the first ODI by a large margin, mainly due to a poor performance, this is the statistic that Ireland wants to correct the most. Seasoned members such as Paul Stirling, Andy Balbirnie and Kevin O’Brien will do well to take the lead in this department.
Even if England has not performed particularly well among the men of the highest order, they will be interested in taking this off as a deviation. They will also be happy to see how Sam Billings withstood the challenge. Her bowling looked round even in the absence of Jofra Archer and Mark Wood.
What Happened Last time between England vs Ireland
Willey produced a breathtaking opening spell when he ate four gates in his first spell in Ireland’s top position. At 28/5, things looked particularly bad for visitors, but debutant Curtis Campher, who finished 7th, led the resurgence with a solid 59 * from 118 balls and helped Ireland a respectable 172. Andy McBrine made his contribution fluently 40 from No.9. Willey returned to win Craig Young’s last wicket and secure a well-deserved five-for.
Given the pursuit of a small goal, England seemed keen to maintain its dominance, but this aggressive approach gave Ireland the chance to play wickets and they reduced the hosts to 78/4, with fast bowler Craig Young taking two hits. But Billings and Eoin Morgan took a somewhat more calculated approach to get England across the line with six gates and 22.1 overs.
