This year’s T20 World Cup is now a platform for the underdogs to prove themselves. Ireland is also in the list of surprising teams in the title fight in Australia. Ireland’s last four dreams have also been greatly enhanced by the shock and rain-hit battle. Andrew Balburni-Paul Stirling have bird’s eye view of the semi-finals. The calculation of the points table does not completely rule out the possibility of the Irish for the semis.
Ireland confirmed the Super Twelve of the World Cup by sending off the two-time world champions West Indies. However, they did not start well in the main stage of the fight. Lost to Sri Lanka by a big margin of 9 wickets.
In the next match, Ireland beat England by 5 runs with luck on their side. Their third match against Afghanistan was abandoned yesterday due to rain. The Irish are now 3rd in the table with 3 points from 3 matches.
Ireland wants to beat Australia to play
The team’s next two matches are against Australia and New Zealand. The opponent is not easy at all. But anything can happen in these conditions of the tournament. In addition, the matter of the incident with the rain can not be ruled out! If the Irish can keep their faith and get a little bit of luck, the semi’s dream can come true!
Ireland captain Balburnie also thinks it is possible for them to play in the semi-finals. “It’s part of the game (matches being washed away),” said the batsman after the match against Afghanistan was washed out due to rain. You may have arrived in Australia thinking that hoodies and raincoats were unnecessary. But things have been quite different since we came here three or four weeks ago. It’s not controllable, so don’t think too much about it.
