Ireland have secured a historic win over England at the T20 Cricket World Cup in Australia.
Rain forced the suspension of play at the MCG, with Ireland winning by five runs via the Duckworth Lewis method.
Ireland had earlier set a target of 158.
England were at 105 for the loss of five wickets after 14 overs when rain stopped play.
Andrew Balbirnie top-scored with 62 for the winners and says it’s a hugely significant result.
“It is amazing and kind of emotional. We never played a game of cricket here, and to come here, play the tournament’s favourites, with so many big names in the game, and put on a show in front of friends, family and so many people around the world.”
“We had a great week last week and then to do this at one of the most amazing cricket grounds in the world is pretty special.”
Ireland’s next match is on Friday against Afghanistan.
