Ireland’s young sensation Curtis Campher once again stole the show in the second One-Day International (ODI) against England at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. South Africa-born Campher notched up his second successive half-century of the three-match series.

Due to Campher’s inspirational knock (68), the visitors managed to go past the 200-run mark. The 21-year-old batsman had few handy partnerships with lower order which helped Ireland to post a decent total.

Highest score at no 7 for Ireland in ODIs:

  • 68 – Curtis Campher*
  • 60 – Garry Wilson
  • 59*– Curtis Campher
  • 54 – John Mooney

Campher also became the first Ireland player to score 50+ scores in his first two ODI innings. Before him, current English skipper Eoin Morgan during a stint with the Irish team was at the top with his first two innings – 99 and 41.

Most runs added by no. 7-11 for IRE in ODIs:

  • 128 v England, Belfast 2006

  • 118 v Zimbabwe, Harare 2010
  • 113 v Sri Lanka, Dublin 2016
  • 113 v England, Southampton 2020 (1st ODI)

Earlier, England’s star with the ball in the first ODI, David Willey, shimmered once again as he removed both Irish openers cheaply. Apart from Willey, Saqib Mehmood also bagged two wickets. However, the real winner was leg-spinner Adil Rashid, who claimed three scalps by giving away only 34 runs in 10 overs.

Rashid also completed 150-wickets in ODI cricket for England. He became the third quickest Englishman and first spinner to achieve the milestone.

  • 95 – Stuart Broad
  • 97 – Darren Gough
  • 102 – Adil Rashid*
  • 115 – Jimmy Anderson
