Before the World Cup, the England team is playing a three-match ODI series with Ireland.

The team’s openers Phil Salt and Will Jacques batted so stormily that the team’s 100 runs were completed in just eight overs i.e. 48 balls. If we talk about completing the fastest 100 runs in ODI cricket, then this record is in the name of New Zealand, it had scored 100 runs in 39 balls against Sri Lanka in the year 2015. England could not break this record, but it is certain that they completed the fastest 100 runs in the history of ODI cricket.

In the year 2018, Eoin Morgan had completed 50 runs on 21 balls against the Kangaroo team. Jonny Bairstow also completed his 50 runs on 21 balls, when the Irish team was in front.
