England stumbled from Ireland in the next just one-working day international but received by four wickets to acquire an unassailable 2- series lead.
Chasing 213 at the Ageas Bowl, the hosts were being flying early on, with Jonny Bairstow placing a 41-ball 82.

England batsmen stutter once more
England misplaced four major-purchase wickets in chasing 173 in the to start with match of the collection on Thursday, and this was a further stuttering batting show from the hosts.
Bairstow’s belligerent start off – he equalled England’s fastest fifty in ODIs by passing the landmark in only 21 balls – ensured there was no want to score promptly, but Morgan and Moeen the two fell to attacking strokes with no scoring.
It was left to Billings to tutorial England to victory for the 2nd time in a few times, soon after his 67 not out in the sequence opener.
He observed off the hazard period when Ireland sensed victory and was composed in the anchor part, permitting Willey to participate in the extra aggressive shots, like two sixes on the pull.
Had England collapsed even further, it would have wasted a skilled bowling efficiency in which Rashid continued his fine kind.
He was the stand-out bowler, but there was also a wicket for Reece Topley on his initially England look for a lot more than four decades, which was deserved immediately after an amazing opening spell in combination with fellow remaining-arm seamer Willey.

Fightback not ample for Eire
Ireland’s fightback with the ball was admirable, but their performances previously price tag them the match.
Like on Thursday, Campher arrived in at quantity 7 following a major-order failure and dragged them to a score that was nonetheless effectively down below par.
In the sequence opener, the Ireland top rated purchase appeared to attack but on this situation they seemed unsure and were bogged down at 20-2 just after 10 overs. In real truth, they could have dropped far more wickets early on.
From there, Ireland’s batsmen were both outdone by Rashid or fell to smooth dismissals – such as that of captain Andrew Balbirnie, who feathered via a limited ball from aspect-time bowler James Vince to gift the Hampshire batsman a to start with international wicket.
Campher was spectacular once more, showing composure in difficult situation and seem approach.
Later in his innings, he confirmed increased vary of pictures than on debut, heading to his 50 percent-century with a scoop in excess of short wonderful leg, right before smashing three boundaries in brief succession off Willey, like a outstanding reverse scoop four.
His continued achievement and the way Minor (3-60) responded to staying smashed by Bairstow early on have been two of few positives.
‘Bairstow realises he belongs’ – analysis
Ex-England batsman Michael Carberry on BBC Check Match Special: “I have a whole lot of admiration for Bairstow. I have seen him at the commence of his profession and his self-confidence took a little bit of a blow in the 2013-14 Ashes.
“He’s a really decided really hard worker, he is reshaped his method, and he is come back again a much more self-confident player. What he has now is that sense of belonging – he realises now that he belongs at this stage.
“Eire were superior currently and there were some shiny spots in the innings. Curtis Campher has long gone about his do the job so calmly in both innings. They went into their shell right until he arrived in.
“The absence of operates and lack of impetus at the major of the buy, has cost. It’s often challenging to publish a complete when you might be four or 5 down within people first 15 overs.”
