Root leads England to easy win over Ireland
Joe Root shone with bat and ball to inspire England to a comfortable 85-run victory over Ireland in the second and final one-day international at Lord's on Sunday. Root made a fluent 73 to lay the platform for England's imposing total of 328 for six and he took three wickets with his part-time off-spinners to help the host win the series 2-0. Eoin Morgan scored 76 and shared a third-wicket partnership of 140 with Root before Jonny Bairstow's sparkling unbeaten 72 off 44 deliveries gave the England innings a late boost. Ireland captain William Porterfield struck a battling 82 but his team lost wickets at regular intervals and they were dismissed for 243 in the 47th over. England play South Africa in a three-match one-day series before hosting the Champions Trophy next month. BRIEF SCORE Ireland 243 in 46.1 overs (Porterfield 82, Plunkett 3/23) lost to England 328/6 (Morgan 76, Root 73) by 85 runs
