Cricket News: England to face Ireland in 1st ODI post corona lockdown

With England looking to maintain separate Test and ODI squads this summer, the ECB have fielded a completely different side for One day series against Ireland led by their world cup winning captain Eoin Morgan. The ECB has done this to give every English player ample rest after the WI test series and before Pakistan test and ODI series. England are without World Cup winners Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Joe Root, Jofra Archer, Jos Buttler and Mark Wood as they prepare for the three-Test series against Pakistan that starts on 5 August. All-rounder Moeen Ali will be vice-captain in Buttler's absence and Paul Collingwood will be in charge of the team with head coach Chris Silverwood also concentrating on Test cricket. The series will see the launch of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League which will determine qualification for the 2023 World Cup with the top seven teams automatically booking their spot at the tournament in India.
