England collapse sets up Ireland Test thriller at Lord’s

Ireland have the chance to pull off one of the biggest upsets in Test history after another England batting collapse on Thursday set the scene for a thrilling finish at Lord’s.

When lightning flashes and rain cut short the second day’s play at 6:10 pm local time in a match scheduled for four days rather than the usual five for a Test, England were 303-9 in their second innings, a lead of 181 runs. That represented a colossal improvement on their humiliating first-innings 85 all out but once again their batsmen struggled ahead of next week’s first Ashes Test.

England had been well-placed at 171-1 second time around, a score built on a second-wicket stand of 145 between nightwatchman Jack Leach, who made 92, and Test debutant Jason Roy made 72.
