Ollie Pope made a double century after Ben Duckett compiled the fastest 150 in a Test at Lord's as England ran riot against an outclassed Ireland in their Ashes warm-up on Friday.
Pope's 205 and Duckett's 182 were the cornerstones of England's imposing 524-4 declared on the Day Two, a lead of 331 runs.
