Malahide - England captain James Taylor won the toss and elected to bowl in the one-day international against Ireland at Malahide on Friday

England included five debutants in Surrey graduate Zafar Ansari, Surrey's opening batsman Jason Roy, Hampshire batsman James Vince, Northants all-rounder David Willey and Yorkshire seamer Mark Wood, fresh from Barbados where he was not selected for the Test squad.

Ireland left out their second spinner, Andy McBrine, preferring Somerset slow left armer George Dockrell and Craig Young, who did not play in any of Ireland's six World Cup games, was brought in for his first match against a Full Member nation, rather than Stuart Thompson.


Ireland: William Porterfield (captain), Paul Stirling, Ed Joyce, Niall O'Brien (wkt), Andrew Balbirnie, Gary Wilson, Kevin O'Brien, John Mooney, George Dockrell, Alex Cusack, Craig Young, Andy McBrine, Stuart Thompson.

England: Alex Hales, Jason Roy, James Vince, James Taylor, Jonny Bairstow, Zafar Ansari, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Tim Bresnan, Mark Wood, Steven Finn

Umpires: Ian Ramage (SCO), Mark Hawthorne (IRL)
