Beating the world champions in their own backyard has always been a tough task but Ireland were expected to at least give England a good fight. Playing their first ODI series since winning the World Cup at home last year, England are without most of their regular players for the ongoing series.
However, Ireland could not capitalise on it and suffered heavy losses in the first two games to concede the three-match series with a match remaining. After losing the first match by four wickets, they lost the second one by six wickets. Ireland will be looking to restore their pride by winning the third and final ODI.
England, on the other hand, will be eyeing a whitewash and pick up more Super League points.
Ireland have won the toss and have decided to bowl first against England in the third ODI in Southampton.
