England bowled out for 85 by Ireland

England were embarrassingly bowled out for 85 by a brilliant Ireland on their return to Test cricket 10 days after winning the World Cup.

  • England 85 all out before lunch
  • Ireland slip from 132-2 to 160-7
  • Balbirnie 55, Stirling 36
  • Three wickets for Curran
  • Debutant Stone takes two wickets
  • Eng 85: Murtagh 5-13, Adair 3-32
  • England's last match before Ashes
  • Four-day Test, Lord's; Eng won toss

Just over a week before the Ashes begin, the fragility of England's batting was once again exposed at Lord's by an Ireland side playing only their third Test.

England bowled out for 85 by Ireland

Middlesex seamer Tim Murtagh, playing on his home ground, expertly exploited the hint of movement on offer to claim 5-13.

Only Joe Denly, Sam Curran and debutant Olly Stone reached double figures for England, who at one stage lost six wickets for seven runs and were bowled out before lunch to lose all 10 wickets in a single session for the fourth time in three years.
