England: 120 for 8 (20 overs)
(Morgan 45 off 37 balls, Wright 20 off 24 balls, Brien 2 for 22, Rankin 2 for 25)
Ireland: 14 for 1 (3.3 overs) [Target 27 off 5 overs]
(Brien 9 off 5 balls, Sidebottom 1 for 9)
England once again got down to the wire and tested the tenacity of it’s middle order batsmen. Again Morgan and Wright, 2 unknown Englishmen staged a rescue act in exactly the same fashion. They played the script again so perfectly that it looks like a well rehearsed play now. The main stars get killed in the first scene again by a certain villain Brien, and it was left to the support cast. Finishing on 120 was an achievement. It got projected as a good enough target. However, the villain was back in the closing scene with guns blazing. However, the electricity failed in the theatre and we guess that the villain must’ve died. Amen!
