England vs Ireland 1st ODI Match Pitch Report
The Headingley Cricket Ground features a fast pitch with pronounced pace and bounce, particularly during the initial overs of a match. This characteristic allows the ball to exhibit significant movement, offering a prime opportunity for fast bowlers to exploit these conditions during the early stages
What to expect:
England: England has rested quite a few players that featured in the series against New Zealand. Zak Crawley will lead this new-look England side, which also features three uncapped players. Crawley has played three ODIs in his career, all of which came in the Covid-19-affected series against Pakistan in 2021. It will be his first time leading England in any format.
Harry Brook, who has been included in England’s World Cup squad, will be the main batter to watch out for in this series. He mustered 37 runs from 68 balls across his three appearances in the New Zealand series. However, the talented youngster has shown a lot of promise across formats and will be eager to prove that he deserves the World Cup spots. We are expecting a big knock from Brook in one of the three matches at least.
Phil Salt is also an exciting prospect. The wicket-keeper batter has played 14 ODIs so far, scoring 460 runs at an average of 38.33 and a strike rate of 125.
Also, watch out for uncapped Sam Hain. The middle-order batter has a List A average of almost 58 from 62 matches with 10 centuries. We are backing him to play an important role in this series.
England’s bowling too will have a lot of new faces. Brydon Carse and George Scrimshaw are joined by Luke Wood, Craig Overton, and Matthew Potts as seam-bowling options. Rehan Ahmed is the main spin bowler in the squad. The 19-year-old leg-spinner is still very young in international cricket and will relish this opportunity to get some valuable experience.
England Key Players
- Joe Root – The right-hander has seen his ODI average dip under 50 after low scores against New Zealand but he has plenty of previous big scores including 16 centuries in this format.
- Will Jacks – The all-rounder has made his debut for England across all formats over the last 12 months and is recognized as a spinning threat as well as a big-hitting batter.
- Luke Wood – The left-arm quick bowler is very rarely out of the wickets at this level. He often concedes runs but will bowl with genuine pace.
Probable XI: Philip Salt, Ben Duckett, Zak Crawley(c), Will Jacks, Joe Root, Harry Brook, Luke Wood, Brydon Carse, Tom Hartley, George Scrimshaw, Rehan Ahmed
England Squad: Ben Duckett, Zak Crawley(c), Joe Root, Philip Salt, Jamie Smith(w), Rehan Ahmed, Will Jacks, Luke Wood, Brydon Carse, Tom Hartley, George Scrimshaw, Matthew Potts, Sam Hain
Ireland: Ireland has assembled a solid squad for the England series. They will be led by Paul Stirling, who is by far the most experienced batter in the side. Stirling has been in good form of late, collecting 346 runs from his last 10 matches. Ireland has announced that Andrew Balbirnie will open with Stirling. They believe the pair have a great understanding and want to develop them into a longer-term opening option in 50-over cricket.
Balbirnie has played 13 ODIs this year, smashing 363 runs in them at an average of 36.30 and a strike rate of 73.33.
Curtis Campher will make the move to number 3 in this series. He has been a mainstay of Ireland’s middle order for a few years now, but we believe he will have a positive impact in this new role as well.
Harry Tector is another batter you should keep an eye on. The middle-order batter has been blasting runs on a consistent basis of late and averages almost 49 in his last 10 matches.
Ireland’s bowling will be led by Mark Adair and Josh Little. The two seam bowlers should find enough assistance from this surface, especially at the start, and can take out a few early wickets. Adair has grabbed 20 wickets from his last 10 games at a strike rate of 24.4. We feel he will be Ireland’s standout bowler in this series.
Ireland Key Players
- Paul Stirling – The skipper was not in the best of form in recent international appearances but he hit 66 for Knights two innings ago in domestic cricket.
- Harry Tector – The 23-year-old middle-order batter is an excellent ODI player with over 1500 runs to his name at an average of 50.43 from 36 innings.
- Barry McCarthy – The experienced pace bowler should get some assistance from the overhead conditions in Leeds and will want the English batters to take him on.
Probable XI: Paul Stirling(c), Andrew Balbirnie, Lorcan Tucker(w), Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Gareth Delany, Craig Young, Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy, Joshua Little, Neil Rock
Ireland Squad: Paul Stirling(c), Andrew Balbirnie, Lorcan Tucker(w), Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Gareth Delany, Craig Young, Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy, Joshua Little, Neil Rock, Graham Hume, Andy McBrine, Theo van Woerkom

England vs Ireland 1st ODI Match Both Teams’ Top Batsmen
With the bat, Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, and Joe Root are our tips for England. Right-handed Crawley impressed during the Men’s Ashes earlier in the summer and his naturally attacking style should suit this format. Duckett has hit two hundreds and 10 half-centuries across international cricket.
For Ireland, Paul Stirling, Curtis Campher, and Harry Tector are our picks with the bat for Ireland. Campher is being promoted to number three in the batting order for this series and he is recognised as having a strong technique. Tector has a top score of 140 in ODIs.
England vs Ireland 1st ODI Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
Luke Wood, Matthew Potts, and Brydon Carse are our bowling choices for England. Carse played in the recent T20I series and ODIs against New Zealand, picking up 5 wickets along the way. Potts has never let England down in his Test appearances which have yielded 23 wickets from six matches.
With the ball, Josh Little, Barry McCarthy, and Mark Adair are our recommendations for Ireland. Experienced bowling all-rounder Adair has a strong ODI record and should get movement through the air in this match. Little is an expensive but wicket-taking bowler.
