Match Preview

SL vs IRE: The 14th match of the ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2022 will be played between the Group 1 members, Sri Lanka and Ireland. The match will be hosted at Bellerive Oval stadium in Hobart on 23rd October 2022.

After suffering a shocking defeat against Namibia in the opening game of the qualifiers, the Asia Champions staged a perfect comeback. However, the road to glory will be much tougher for them as a few key players are back home owing to their respective injuries. The spinners will have a lot of responsibility on their shoulders in the absence of the core pace unit.

Ireland, on the other hand, produced the biggest upset of the tournament. They knocked out the two-time T20 World Cup champions, West Indies, to make their way into the Super 12 group. They restricted the Windies to a total of 146. Paul Stirling led the chase and Ireland won the game for the loss of just one wicket. However, the Super 12 Group 1 is filled with giant cricketing nations. Hence, they still need to raise their bar further.
