Adil Rashid's maiden one-day worldwide five-wicket haul set up England's rapid seven-wicket victory over Ireland in the first match of their longest ever summer.
The umpires allowed the extra 15 minutes of play available with a result close and a flurry of boundaries from Joe Root, who finished unbeaten on 49, and Jonny Bairstow meant the match was completed in barely more than half the allotted overs.
If that was a statement that they now regard Rashid as their No1 spinner in one-day cricket, then they were repaid handsomely as the leggie's variations put the visitors in a spin.
Asked how highly he rated his spell himself, the Yorkshireman said: "It was probably up there - I've had a couple of other performances as well".
The first three of his wickets - Gary Wilson, Kevin O'Brien and Stuart Thompson - came from Rashid's googly as Ireland slipped to 108-7.
England's Rashid had been given the nod as their frontline spinner ahead of Moeen Ali for the first match of the summer and though he will come up against far tougher resistance in the months to come, it was a more-than-handy start for a player who relies hugely on confidence. The new England Test captain will hope such a midas touch follows him around for the rest of the summer.

What grade do the Cardinals get through 3 rounds of the draft?
Arians said he sees a lot of the Denver Broncos' Von Miller in Reddick , which could be scary good for the Cardinals. He's 6-foot-2, 245 pounds, he ran a sub 4.5 (40-yard dash), he's explosive, he's got a great first step.
Porterfield could not find any fluency on his return to the ground where he started his professional career, and eventually fell in anti-climax for 13 off 45 balls when he presented new England Test captain Root with a wicket from only his second delivery of the new global season. They advanced to 81 for two before a dramatic collapse where they lost their last eight wickets for 45 runs.
Stuart Thompson was next to go, bowled by a handsome Rashid googly.
Morgan and Billings had returned from their stints in the Indian Premier League but all-rounders Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes, as well as regular England ODI keeper Jos Buttler had remained with their franchises in the lucrative Twenty20 competition. [Mark Wood?] First game back it's important to get overs under your belt, manage the expectation, important he builds up momentum to the Champions Trophy.
Ireland batting first got all out for 126 in 33 overs.
However, Ireland have started the English innings in the flawless fashion, taking a wicket in the opening over. Three out of the eight England players who are now in India for the 10th season of Indian Premier League (IPL), namely skipper Eoin Morgan and openers Jason Roy and Sam Billings, will return back in time to join the squad for the series. [Rashid?] He's had a tough winter playing against high-calibre opposition, so to come back and show calmness and composure was great. "We will have an open and honest review, park the game and leave it in Bristol. I couldn't have asked any more from the boys".
