Over in the CWC2019 thread it was remarked that the ENG ODI team was the first to try to play T20 cricket over 50 overs.
Based on that strategy they compiled a phenomenal 75% win rate over the past 4 years.

What I wasn't aware that the 1st innings vs Ireland was the fourth time in that same period the Test line-up has been bowled out in under a session.
You can see when the ODI selections were practicing the "go for broke" strategy.
