Cape Town - Just 10 days after being crowned world champions for the first time in their history, England were all out for just 85 in a one-off Test against Ireland at Lord's. 

It is obviously a different format and a largely different playing group, but it was an innings that saw English cricket come crashing back down. 

Ireland still have to bat, of course, and there is more than enough time in the Test match for England to recover, but some of the commentary on social media did make for some entertaining reading. 

It is the first time that the sides have ever met in a Test match, and the Irish underdogs will be incredibly pleased with needing just a single session to take the upper hand in the contest at the Home of Cricket. 

This Test serves as England's final preparation ahead of their five-Test Ashes series against rivals Australia.

Here are some of the most amusing Tweets we stumbled across.
