England enter their final warm-up series against Ireland before jetting out to India for the Cricket World Cup.


The reigning world champions will aim to fine-tune their gameplan ahead of an attempted title defence in the subcontinent.

Captain Jos Buttler oversaw a convincing 3-1 series victory over New Zealand last week, though former Test captain Joe Root knows he has work to do ahead of the trip.

Root averaged just 9.75 across four innings against New Zealand with a 6, 0, 4 and 29 on his card. He requested to be included to play against Ireland this week.

Harry Brook will miss the Ireland matches to accommodate Root, though the rising star batter has now been included in the official Cricket World Cup squad at the expense of Jason Roy following his initial eyebrow-raising omission.
