ODI has cricket returned for the first time since March this year with world champions England taking on Ireland in a three-match series that got underway from July 30.
England has dominated the series and also are the first team to come up with the points of the Cricket Super League Series. In the second ODI Jonny Bairstow equaled the record for the fastest ODI fifty by an England batsman during his assault against Ireland.
Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow (WK), James Vince, Tom Banton, Sam Billings, Eoin Morgan (Captain), Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Tom Curran, Saqib Mahmood, Liam Dawson, Reece Topley

England bowler Reece Topley will miss the final ODI with a left groin strain. The injury is only a minor one and Topley is expected to be fit soon. Tom Curran is set to be the likely replacement.
With runs at the top of the order a problem, the experienced Ireland cricketer Will Porterfield might get a look in as might George Dockrell’s left-arm bowling at the expense of Simi Singh’s off-breaks.
Ireland has won the toss and chose to field against England.
