England vs. Ireland - The match was called off without a single ball being bowled.
Root's attempt to rediscover his 50-over form before the upcoming World Cup next month was thwarted by rain. The first ODI toss between England and Ireland at Headingley was abandoned.
Following scores of 6, 0, 4, and 29 against New Zealand, Root was drafted into the England team for this match upon his request. He trained indoors on Monday and Tuesday. He has only played 16 ODIs since the 2019 World Cup, with no centuries and three fifties to his name, but England isn't overly concerned about his form.
There is no likelihood of him staying with the team for the second ODI on Saturday in Trent Bridge. Instead, he hopes to relax with his teammates during the World Cup touring party. England's stand-in captain, Jack Crawley, said, "I think he will take it easy now until the World Cup." "I'm not sure: if he wants to pick up the bat, it's his decision."
England flies to India next Wednesday and will play a practice match against India and Bangladesh in Guwahati before the first World Cup match against New Zealand on October 5. Root has been selected to start the tournament at number three. He will be supported in rediscovering the form that helped him end England's 2019 tournament as their leading run-scorer.
Due to rain showers, the scheduled toss at 12:00 pm was postponed, but after a brief shower around 2:15 pm, the rain had stopped by around 1:30 pm. Umpires inspected the field repeatedly, but the presence of a soaked patch around the bowler's run-up area and take-off area at Kirkstall Lane meant that the ground was deemed unfit for play.
Yorkshire sold around 10,000 tickets for this event and donated around 4,000 tickets to local schools and clubs. Many attending fans welcomed the news of abandonment - which came at around 4:50 pm - with relief. Half an hour after umpires Mike Burns and Adrian Holdstock ended the game, the ground was bathed in sunshine.
Crawley said, "I was very disappointed that we didn't get a game." "In truth, this was just a washout. It wasn't fit to play, and I think in the end, it was probably the right decision. It was very damp, and if we had played on it, it would have bounced around. It wasn't suitable for the bowlers."
Crawley added, "It was covered, which was slightly damp. At this time of year, it doesn't dry out like it does at other times of the year. We were unlucky that as soon as the game was due to start, the weather turned and then it rained again this morning. I can't believe there would have been groundstaff and others who could have done anything about it: they worked really hard to try to get the game on."
Yorkshire confirmed that all ticket-buyers will receive a full refund. The club did not make officials available for comment but tweeted: "We would like to thank all our groundstaff for their incredible hard work to try to get the game on today in what were unbelievable conditions."
England was looking to hand at least two players their ODI debut in this series, selecting a second-string team for the tour to give their World Cup traveling party some rest. The remaining two matches will be played on Saturday at Trent Bridge and on Tuesday in Bristol.
