After England secured its first win against Ireland in the ODI series, pacer David Willey who helped his side win the game by taking his maiden five-wicket haul said that his “best cricket is probably still to come”.

Willey’s leading performance showed the hosts to a six-wicket win against Ireland in the first ODI. Though, the 30-year-old had missed England’s last 22 white-ball games, before coming into the series.

The pacer said that his bowling coach- Richard Pyrah, devoted time in him at Yorkshire and sensed like he is going in the “right direction”.

“He’s had me badgering him at all times of the day in the winter and fortunately he has invested some time in me. I feel like I’m moving in the right direction and I feel like my best cricket is probably still to come,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Willey as saying.

During the match, after being demanded to bat first Ireland only accomplished to score 172 runs. Sam Billings and Eoin Morgan’s unbeaten knocks of 67 and 36 respectively taped up England’s win.

Willey further added, “It was just special to be out there playing for England again. The main priority was to enjoy it. I’ve gone away and worked quite hard to get back near my best. It’s been a rollercoaster, but I was just out there enjoying my cricket today.”
The second ODI between England and Ireland will take place in Southampton on Saturday.
