Live Scores and Stats - England v Ireland Test at Lord's
Current Test Cricket Form of England:
England are in splendid Test Cricket Form currently. They clean swept Pakistan by 3-0 in a 3 match Test Series held in December last year. Post that, England tied a 2 match series against New Zealand away from home at 1-1.
A pick of both the series was Harry Brook who scored at a rapid pace and consistently took England to a great position in most games. He is expected to carry on his red ball cricket form against Ireland in the upcoming Test.
Players to look out for:
1. Harry Brook - He is in a sensational form and can give a tough time to the Irish bowlers.
2. Josh Tongue - He is set to make his England debut at Lord's and will be one to watch.
Current Test Cricket Form Ireland:
Ireland have been in poor red ball form. They were beaten by Bangladesh in a One Off Test played in April by 1-0. Ireland also suffered a 2-0 crushing against Sri Lanka away from home.
Players like Mark Adair and Lorcan Tucker did show some skills with the bat. They can take the English bowlers on in the upcoming Test match.
Players to look out for:
1. Thomas Mayes - Ireland's young sensation Thomas Mayes picked up 7 wickets in the practice match against Essex and he can really surprise the cricket fraternity with his knack of picking up wickets.
2. Paul Stirling - He smashed a century in the practice game against Essex. Stirling will hold the key to Ireland getting a good start against England in the upcoming Test.
