England cricket news
England would be without Ben Stokes, Joe Root, Jos Buttler
and Chris Woakes, who played the 2019 World Cup final as they are on Test duty, but the ODI captain Morgan believes that the side would not suffer much.
"Being able to see more and more of the Lions players or the guys outside of the Lions over the last couple of weeks has been exceptional. There is such a big pool of players who are unbelievably talented. Yes, we don't know whether they will succeed in international cricket but you are comfortable selecting them in the squad for if you need them at any stage," Morgan said.
Phil Salt, who was playing for England Lions scored a 58-ball hundred against Ireland on Sunday, and Sam Hain, who averages 59.78 in List A cricket, was left out from England's 14-member white-ball squad.
England squad: Eoin Morgan
(captain), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Tom Banton, Sam Billings, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Joe Denly, Saqib Mahmood, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Reece Topley, James Vince, David Willey.

Ireland cricket news
England predicted playing 11: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Tom Banton/Joe Denly, James Vince, Eoin Morgan (C), Moeen Ali, Sam Billings/Liam Dawson, Tom Curran, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Reece Topley/Saqib Mahmood.
Ireland predicted playing 11: Paul Stirling, William Porterfield, Andy Balbirnie (C), Harry Tector, Kevin O’Brien, Simi Singh, Gareth Delany/Joshua Little, Lorcan Tucker (wk), Andy McBrine, Boyd Rankin, Craig Young.
For Ireland, Paul Stirling is expected to hold the key. He knows the art of getting quick runs and in the hour of need, can also bowl off-breaks. William Porterfield has experience on his side and he needs to lend enough support to Stirling. The duo has been a key to Ireland’s success over the years.
Paul Stirling will again hold key for Ireland’s success as he knows the way to get score quickly and come handy with his off-breaks. Meanwhile, the experience of William Porterfield and Kevin O’ Brien will hold the key in the middle overs.
Andrew Balbirnie (c), Paul Stirling, William Porterfield, Curtis Campher, Josh Little, Gareth Delany, Andrew McBrine, Barry McCarthy, Kevin O'Brien, Boyd Rankin, Simi Singh, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, and Craig Young.
