Match Preview

AUS vs IRE: Defending champions Australia will face Ireland in the 31st game of the ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2022. The fixture will take place at the famous Gabba Stadium in Brisbane on Monday, 31st October 2022.

The defending champions and the home team, mighty Australia, are in deep trouble. Out of the three games, they won one, lost one, and one was washed away owing to heavy rainfall. Hence, this game will be a must-win for them as the semi-finals are closing in, and, currently, they stand 4th on the points table. However, the previous game brought lots of positives for them. Marcus Stoinis unleashed absolute carnage and scored a blistering 59 runs off just 19 deliveries with a massive strike rate of 327. Eventually, they won the game in the 17th over itself.

Meanwhile, Ireland stunned England in the 20th match. They posted a par score of 157 batting first. England struggled during the chase and were 5 down with just 105 runs on board. However, rain played spoilsport and the game could not be continued further. As a result, Ireland was handed those 2 points as they were 5 runs ahead under the DLS rules. After defeating West Indies, Ireland has produced the second upset of the tournament and is emerging as the most successful associate team. Furthermore, they are placed 3rd on the point table, just above Australia.
