CAN vs IRE Dream11 : Two of the biggest side in Group B lock heads in a behemoth of a tie today
Right when the schedule for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier was released, today’s forthcoming match was one which was eagerly awaited. In Ireland and Canada, we don’t only have two of the strongest sides in Group B but two overwhelming favourites to sweep the tournamnet and seal their progression into next year’s world cup.
This match is undoubtedly going to be both these sides most staunch test, more so for Ireland, a side who know they’ll need to win this one if they are to keep snapping at Ireland’s heels if they are to have any chance of making it into first place in the group. The side have lost one out of the three matches they have played till now and if they can’t thwart group leaders Canada today, their chances of making it into the summit of the group will all but vanish up in smoke.
Masking 183 while batting first, the side restricted their opposition at 148 in what was a complete performance by the side to emerge with a 35 run win to make amends for their prior defeat. Elsewhere yet to be defeated Canada have won both of their clashes till now, seeing off Nigeria in their previous encounter by a massive 50 runs after curbing their run chase at a mere 109 in pursuit of 160.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A treacherous wicket to bat on, the glaring sun baking the surface will lead to the spinners come out and massively exploit the ever opening and crumbling nature of the surface leading the side winning the toss to field first. Expect a relatively low score today with the side batting side trying to put on anything close to 140.
