Ireland shocked world cup champion England in their own den as skipper Andrew Balbirnie and Paul Stirling guided the visitors to a stunning seven-wicket Southampton on Tuesday.
Chasing 329 to win – the same score they managed in their famous 2011 scalp – Stirling hammered 142 and Balbirnie 113 in a partnership of 214 that broke the back of the chase.
A late wobble threatened to derail their challenge, but Harry Tector and O’Brien added 50 in 5.2 overs to seal a memorable win.
2-0 down in the series after two batting implosions, Balbirnie stuck with his youngsters but knew that it was the senior batsmen that needed to stand up.
Paul Stirling had struggled badly against David Willey in the series to date, but started confidently and positively here, slamming his third ball through cover to get the chase up and running.
Though England won the three-match ODI series 2-1, the final ODI out to be a thriller, as Ireland chased down the target with one ball to spare.
Ireland’s win was all the more impressive as they had lost the first two matches after making lowly totals of 172 and 212-9.
Earlier England captain Morgan made 106 against his native country. but with England on course for an impregnable total, they look three wickets for 13 runs as they slumped from 190-3 to 203-6.
