Harry Tector falls for a duck as Mark Wood bags another scalp. Ireland have lost two wickets in quick succession to be reduced to103/3. Earlier, Lorcan Tucker was backing up too far as Andy Balbirnie’s straight drive hits Adil Rashid’s fingers on the way to the non-striker’s stumps. Tucker almost backed away to let the ball roll towards the stumps, bringing the second wicket stand to an end on 82. Despite multiple rain breaks, Ireland powered away to a strong start, reaching 59 for 1 at the end of the PowerPlay.
Heartbreaking for Lorcan Tucker 💔
Andrew Balbirnie nails a straight drive, Adil Rashid gets a finger on it, and the non-striker is out of his ground.
Still, a special partnership 👏
