Adil Rashid puts Ireland in tailspin as England take 1st ODI

Adil Rashid puts Ireland in tailspin as England take 1st ODI

He briefly lost his place in the one-day side in India after being plundered for 50 off five overs in Pune before returning for the three-match series in West Indies in March.

Fellow opener Alex Hales was then dropped on nought, Middlesex quick Tim Murtagh failing to hold a tough caught and bowled chance.

"I think we have a stiffer test with the South Africa series coming up, it's part and parcel of our preparation".

Jason Roy was out for a duck but a half century for Alex Hales [55] and a 49 for Joe Root on his first worldwide appearance on home soil since being appointed Test skipper helped England over the line in 20 overs and before the lunch break.

"I hope I can now carry it on into the summer".

Indian benchmark indices decline on Wednesday
Power Grid (+2.43%), TCS (+1.63%) were the top gainers on Sensex too, while Lupin (-2.79%), Adani Ports (-1.62%) traded lower. Brokers said apart from weak global cues, investors booked profit after recent gains, pushing the indices down.

Meanwhile, Morgan hailed Rashid's destruction of Ireland as the best display of the leg-spinner's career so far after England sauntered to victory in their first match of the summer.

Meanwhile, Morgan, speaking on Sky Sports, praised the spin bowler for his contribution. But, as the Test status is just doorstep, this performance is a huge disappointment for them as their batsmen failed to prove their strength. But their recent 7-2 reverse across three formats against fellow Test aspirants Afghanistan in India was an indication of how they are struggling to match the standards of Irish teams that beat major nations at several World Cups.

Rashid outwitted the Ireland batsman with his array of googlies, sliders and orthodox leg breaks.

Ireland were well placed at 81-2 in the 18th over when batting first, before losing eight wickets for 47 runs to be skittled for 126.

"Adil today, it shows the threat leg-spin poses, turning it both ways, he's very threatening".

Isaiah Thomas joins Celtics greats in 53-point masterpiece
Marcin Gortat had 14 points and 10 rebounds and Markieff Morris scored 16 for the Wizards , but both fouled out in overtime. Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas drives to the basket against Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal .

"Not taking anything away from Rashid, we should have played it a lot better".

Joyce and Stirling set off at pace against English opening bowlers David Willey and Mark Wood with Stirling executing some bludgeoning shots in between playing and missing as the watching Irish supporters looked on through slayed fingers.

Root was handed the ball in the 22nd over and struck with his second delivery when Porterfield - having scratched 13 off 44 balls - limply lofted to mid-off. First he removed Gary Wilson who went for a lap-sweep and immediately reviewed Aleem Dar's lbw decision, but replays showed he hadn't touched the ball and neither was it going over the stumps. But he has not hit those heights since and on Friday he was lbw for four, failing to pick Rashid's googly.

The second of Hales was too little too late though, given the opener had already made 55 from 39 balls and Chase's third - Morgan caught in the deep - was a mere inconvenience as England cruised home.

Trump tax plan leaves Congress, Ryan with heavy lift
Retailers and other big importers have railed against the proposed tax, saying it would lead to higher prices for consumer goods. Relying on growth, whether spurred by the cuts themselves or not, to balance the budget is a highly uncertain endeavor.
