ENG vs IRE [WATCH]: Ben Duckett receives a standing ovation from the crowd and teammates after a sensational ton
The Day 2 of the one-off Test between England and Ireland is currently underway at the Lords, with the hosts leading by a decent margin and eight wickets still in hand. After bundling out Ireland on 172 on the first day of the match, England started things well and were given a great start from their openers, Zak Crawley and Ben Duckett. The duo of Crawley and Duckett added 109 runs for the first wicket. However, Crawley couldn’t convert his start and was dismissed on 56 by Fionn Hand.
On the other hand, Duckett went on to score his second ton in the longest format off just 106 balls. The sensational knock of the 28-year-old batter was very well applauded by his teammates and spectators as they stood on their feet to show respect for Duckett. The English players spotted clapping for Duckett after his exploit included England skipper Ben Stokes, Joe Root and Harry Brook. Meanwhil
