England took a winning lead of 2-0 in the 3-match ODI series against Ireland in what turned out to be a replay of the first ODI. Curtis Campher rescued his team yet again with an 87-ball 68 that pushed Ireland’s total to 212/9 from 78/5 in 24 overs. Jonny Bairstow smashed a 21-ball fifty and raced to 82 from only 41 deliveries despite England lost wickets regularly.

Ireland continued with aggressive bowling as England collapsed to 137/6 from 131/3 in the 16th over. However, Sam Billings (46*) and David Willey (47*) scripted an unbeaten 7th wicket partnership of 79 runs for completing the chase with 105 balls to spare.

Here are all the statistical highlights from England’s 4-wicket win in Southampton to clinch the ODI series:

A milestone win for Morgan:

50 – The 4-wicket win on Saturday is now the 50th win as captain on England soil in International cricket for Eoin Morgan. He is the first skipper to win as many as 50 International games in England. Overall, Morgan is the 9th skipper in International cricket to win 50 or more matches as captain on home soil.

World record for Campher:

1 – Curtis Campher is now the first player in the history of Men’s ODI cricket to score 50+ runs and also claim at least one wicket in both of the first two matches. He is overall the 2nd player to achieve this in ODI cricket as Lynne Thomas recorded this feat back in 1973 while representing England Women.

1 – Curtis Campher also became the first player in ODI history to score fifties in both of the first two matches while batting at No.7 or a lower position. David Hussey was the closest player to this feat as he scored a fifty on debut at No.6 and followed with another fifty in his 2nd ODI batting at No.7.

Bairstow equals England records:

21 – Jonny Bairstow brought up his fifty in 21 balls which is now the joint-fastest fifty in ODI cricket for England. Eoin Morgan also scored a 21-ball fifty during the 2018 Nottingham ODI against Australia.

72 – Jonny Bairstow completed 3000 runs in ODI cricket in only 72 innings; the joint-quickest player to the milestone for England alongside Joe Root. Only four players in Men’s cricket have reached 3000 ODI runs in less than 72 innings thus far.

Rashid @ 150 wickets:

150 – The three wickets in this match helped Adil Rashid to become the first spin bowler to bag 150 wickets for England in ODI format. Rashid got to this feat in 102 matches which makes him the 6th quickest spinner to reach 150 ODI wickets.

A day of ducks for England:

4 – The duck in this match was Eoin Morgan’s 4th duck as England skipper in home ODIs. He is the first England captain to be dismissed for a duck on four occasions in home ODI matches. Overall, this was Morgan’s 11th International duck as England captain which puts him only behind Michael Vaughan (13) and Andrew Strauss (12) in the list of England captains with most International ducks.

2010 – The last instance of England winning a Men’s ODI despite three of their players bagging ducks was back in 2010. Three England batters were dismissed for a duck in the 2010 Manchester ODI against Australia before they chased down 213 with one wicket in hand.

Ireland’s lower-order excels:

1 – This game witnessed the first-ever instance of Ireland having two 50+ partnership for 7th and lower wickets in an ODI match. This was also only the 2nd time where England conceded two 50+ stands for 7th and lower wickets in an ODI. The other such occasion came during the 1984 Manchester ODI against West Indies.
