There are real concerns over the form of Ireland Women after they were comprehensively beaten by England Academy in the second of their three matches at Millfield School.

The retirements last year of four high profile players, coupled with Lucy O'Reilly's sabbatical and Kim Garth's injuries mean the bowling unit in particular is looking very vulnerable.

Chasing Ireland's 122, England Academy won with 20 balls to spare as Armitage and Capsey both his half centuries.

Una Raymond-Hoey (27) and Leah Paul (21) top scored for the Girls in Green, who are using the series in preparation for next month's T20 WCQ tournament in Scotland.
