Jacks, Hain and Rehan star as England go 1-0 up

England 334 for 8 (Jacks 94, Hain 89, Dockrell 3-43) beat Ireland 286 (Dockrell 43, Young 40, Rehan 4-54) by 48 runs

Nottingham: An experimental England team eventually defeated Ireland in the second one-day international at Trent Bridge.

Will Jacks struck a fluent 94 and Sam Hain, one of four uncapped players in the home side, made 89 to take England to 334-8.

Pace bowler George Scrimshaw then endured a nightmare start to his England debut, bowling four no-balls in his first over and conceding 35 runs from the first 11 legal deliveries he bowled.

But the Derbyshire man showed great character to have Andy Balbirnie edge to slip from the final ball of his second over.

That was the start of England gradually working through the Irish batting, leg-spinner Rehan Ahmed producing a mesmerising spell of 4-54.

With Ireland at 188-8, the game should have ended quickly, only for the visitors to resist and England to lose their discipline.

Barry McCarthy made 41, with Craig Young and Josh Little adding 55 for the last wicket before Ireland were bowled out for 286 to lose by 48 runs.

After the first match at Headingley was washed out on Wednesday, the series concludes in Bristol on Tuesday.
