The 1st ODI of the three-match series between England vs Ireland will be played at The Rose Bowl in Southampton. It starts at 3 PM local time (6:30 PM IST) (1 PM GMT).
After England and West Indies, Ireland is set to become the third team to resume international cricket with the three-match ODI series against the hosts. England are a bit thin in terms of experience as they will miss the services of Joe Root, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes as they were involved in the Test series against the West Indies.
But they also have some of the best players in the country in this team and this is the best chance for the management to groom the talent keeping in mind the next World Cup. Ireland, on the other hand, is one which keeps giving a good fight to England time and again. This is a good chance for them to put pressure on the home side in the absence of their top players.

With Ireland batting first and posting under-par totals in two ODIs, it is still unknown what is a match-winning score at the venue. The pitch has been very good to bat on with the new ball swinging early on. Spinners are always in the game and Adil Rashid’s three wickets in the last outing prove it.
Average first innings: 217 (Last six ODIs at the venue)
Probable Playing XIs
Jonny Bairstow (wk), Jason Roy, James Vince, Eoin Morgan (C), Sam Billings, Tom Banton/Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali/Liam Dawson, Reece Topley, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Saqib Mahmood/Tom Curran
Paul Stirling, Gareth Delany/William Porterfield, Andy Balbirnie (C), Harry Tector, Kevin O Brien, Lorcan Tucker (wk), Curtis Campher, Andy McBrine, Craig Young, Joshua Little, Simi Singh.
Expected Top Players
It might be surprising that we are keeping faith on Jason Roy despite his two back-to-back failures. But he is definitely due a big score in this series and he will be itching to do so in the final ODI. Expect him to go bonkers with the bat especially if England bats first.
David Willey has made a brilliant comeback into the England side. He has picked seven wickets so far in the series and scored a vital 47 as well with the bat in the second game. He will be keen to finish the series well to keep his stakes high for the next series when the preferred set of bowlers return.
Campher made his debut in this series itself but the maturity he showed with bat and ball has been brilliant. In both ODIs, he helped Ireland reach respectable scoring half-centuries and also picked 3 wickets so far. He will be itching to end the series on a high and possibly help his team win the match.
