England vs Ireland ODI probable squads for 2nd ODI:
The home side are expected to play the same XI unless the management wants to play Joe Denly in place of James Vince. Vince, in his short innings, was impressive though making his replacement a tough call. On the bowling, the bowlers have built a strong point restraining the young Irish side within 200. The four will likely continue to wrap up the series before it gets to a decider.
Predicted XI: Roy, Bairstow (WK), Vince, Banton, Billings, Morgan (C), Ali, Curran, Rashid, WIlley, Saqib
A likely change would be Boyd Rankin or Josh Little replacing the injured Barry McCarthy. Otherwise, this team deserved to fancy another chance in the middle. The young players looked promising at many moments in the Series opener before they let it go. It is the experienced campaigners like Paul Stirling and the skipper Andrew Balbirnie who will have to take control. Ireland might also push Curtis Campher up the order after his exemplary debut in the series opener.
Predicted XI: P Stirling, G Delany, A Balbirnie (C), H Tector, K O’Brien, L Tucker (WK), C Campher, S Singh, A McBrine, C Young, B Rankin
