Jos Burns, who is making his One-Day International (ODI) debut for Australia today in the one-off match against Ireland, became their 207th cricketer in the yellow jersey. Steven Smith, who is going to lead the side for the first time as a full-time skipper, won the toss and elected to bat first after the start was delayed due to bad weather in Belfast. Burns will open Australia’s innings alongside new vice-captain David Warner, the Queensland batsman received this superb opportunity after a recent run of injury ruled out Aaron Finch. Ireland vs Australia 2015, Live Cricket Score: only ODI at Belfast
