Southampton: Ireland forged a famous night as they defeated England for the first time on England soil by seven wickets after chasing down their 328 at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton on Tuesday.

Helped by Eoin Morgan’s 106, England set themselves for a big total by reaching 182/3 in 25 overs. Ireland bowlers took back control, but after defiant knocks from tailenders David Willey (51) and Tom Curran (38*), they finished their innings on 328-all out.

Ireland started their innings brilliantly — Paul Stirling (142) and Andrew Balbirnie’s (113) 214-run second-wicket partnership helped Ireland stay in the chase till the 42nd over. Kevin O’Brien (21*) and Harry Tector (29*) saw out the match towards the end.
