England v Ireland: Andrew Balbirnie post-match press conference


Ireland captain Andrew Balbirnie savoured a momentous victory over England as “one we’ll remember forever” after overcoming the world champions in a nail-biting conclusion at the Ageas Bowl. Tons from Paul Stirling and Balbirnie in a 214-run stand in the third one-day international laid the foundations for a chase of 329, the same score Ireland reached in famously beating England at the 2011 World Cup. But Ireland were still left needing 50 from the final 33 deliveries when Balbirnie holed out for 113 – soon after Stirling had been run out for 142 – and there were plenty of nervy moments thereafter.
