IRE vs JER Dream11 : Ireland in a precarious position ahead of today’s encounter with the side failing to live upto the expectations accorded from them

They came into the exhibition tournamnet bestowed with some worldclass performers, names expected to transcend upon the tournamnet with tranquil displays.
And despite the two wins, the side have massively underwhelmed, putting in stinker displays, a discourse which was further epitomised by their defeat to Canada in their foregone clash. The side unravelled and dejected in their pursuit of 156, falling short by 10 runs as they floundered and wavered, waning as they ended up losing at regular intervals to fall short of the target at hand.
