England enter Super Eight stage


With each team getting one point, England qualified for the Super Eight stage, thanks to their superior net run-rate. England have a net run-rate of -0.452, better than Ireland’s -3.500 after the two group matches.

Put into bat, England got off to a dismal start but Eoin Morgan’s determined 37-ball 45 helped them eke out a moderate 120 for eight on Tuesday.
Morgan, who struck five fours, found good support from Luke Wright (20 off 24). The duo came together when the team was struggling at 49 for four and added 41 runs for the fifth wicket partnership for a timely recovery.

Rain halted the match soon after Ireland started chasing the victory target of 121. They were 14 for one in 3.3 overs when the match was halted due to heavy downpour.
