England scare

ENGLAND was given a fright by Ireland in its first match since regaining the Ashes, winning by two runs in a rain-affected one-day international in Belfast on Thursday. Only four players that played in the victorious fifth test against Australia at The Oval last Sunday made the England line-up which struggled to 203 for nine off 50 overs. Ireland was then set a revised total of 116 from 20 overs because of bad weather but fell agonizingly short, ending on 113-9.
