Ireland vs. England: One-off ODI Preview

Ireland will be taking on England for a one-off ODI match on Friday at Malahide Cricket Club (The Village) in Dublin. England is set to kick-start their World Cup 2019 preparations with a one-off ODI match against the Irish side before their upcoming home series against Pakistan. It will be England's third visit to Dublin and the visitors are to taste defeat at this venue, but a few important World Cup players are missing from the squad—Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes—who were given rest after their IPL stint with their respective franchise before World Cup. Jason Roy will also miss out due to a back spasm. Looking at this match Ben Foakes is expected to make his ODI debut as he is the lone wicket-keeper available for the selection. Moreover, James Vince who was included recently also expected to feature for England after the withdrawal of Alex Hales from all England squads for using recreational drugs.

Meanwhile, Ireland is coming in to this match after facing series defeat against Afghanistan in March and will be looking to turn the tides. However, it will be difficult to pull a victory as they won just two out of 13 ODIs which they played since 2013. Ireland will welcome Gary Wilson back to their side after missing series against Afghanistan due to eye condition and will take gloves for this match.
