The series’ sole Test will begin on Thursday, June 1st, at the Lord’s Cricket Ground in London with England taking against Ireland. The England team played outstanding Test cricket during the past 12 months, winning 10 of the 12 matches and going undefeated in the 5 series they took part in. The team’s most recent Test match took place in New Zealand in February. The top scorers were Brook and Root, with 329 and 319 runs, respectively. Leach and Broad both claimed ten wickets.
Ireland, on the other hand, has never played in a Test match that ended in a tie or a victory. They were defeated 2-0 in the most recent Test series held in Sri Lanka. Tector made a fifty, and McBrine, an off-spinner, claimed 2 wickets. Camphor was the top wicket-taker with 3 dismissals and a century. Ireland suffered a 143-run defeat in the one Test that year in England.
