Ireland wins the toss, elect to bowl first
Ireland skipper William Porterfield has won the toss and decided to bowl first against England at the Providence Stadium in a make or break Group D game for both teams.
After last night’s farcical Duckworth Lewis defeat against the West Indies; England go into the game under pressure knowing they need to beat Ireland to claim a place in the Super Eights.
Although a wash out will also guarantee progress England can’t afford to go into the game lightly as Ireland can still reach the Super Eights by beating them by a big margin.
Both teams have name unchanged line-ups with England skipper Paul Collingwood admitting they would have bowled first having won the toss.
England team - MJ Lumb, C Kieswetter†, KP Pietersen, PD Collingwood*, EJG Morgan, LJ Wright, SCJ Broad, TT Bresnan, GP Swann, MH Yardy, RJ Sidebottom.
Ireland team - WTS Porterfield*, PR Stirling, NJ O'Brien†, AR Cusack, KJ O'Brien, DT Johnston, GC Wilson, JF Mooney, AC Botha, G Dockrell, WB Rankin.
